Tribes Commit to Uphold Paris Climate Agreement
Western nations take action on climate change — and push for self-governance.
by Lyndsey Gilpin, High Country News  -  14 JUL 2017
    The Swinomish Indian Tribal Community started planning for climate change a decade ago. Located on the southeastern peninsula of Fidalgo Island on Puget Sound in Washington, the reservation is surrounded by water and at high risk for sea-level rise. A destructive 100-year storm event in 2006 led tribal leaders to research and fund climate programs, and the Swinomish became the first tribal nation to adopt a climate adaptation plan.
    So when President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the United Nations’ Paris climate agreement, the Swinomish reacted swiftly and, together with other tribes, publicly committed to uphold the accord.
    In the West, where many tribal communities and reservations are on the frontlines of climate change, tribal leaders are determined to move forward on climate action as sovereign nations despite budget cuts, climate denial, and inaction. “We came together with one another to raise the level of environmental awareness,” said Debra Lekanoff, governmental affairs director for the Swinomish. “We can’t just pick up and move the places where we live.”...

Ute Indian Tribe Secures Major Victory Against Trespassing State & County Officers

    FT. DUCHESNE, UTAH – On July 11, 2017, the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit issued a decision in Vance Norton, et al, v. Ute Indian Tribe, one of a series of cases in which the Ute Tribe and the family of Todd Murray are seeking to hold now-Uintah County Sheriff Vance Norton accountable for allegedly trespassing onto the Ute Reservation and shooting Todd Murray, an unarmed Ute Indian, in the head from point blank range; and to hold Norton’s associates accountable for allegedly trespassing onto the reservation and destroying evidence and taking other actions to cover up Norton’s shooting of Murray....

Federal Government Denies N.D.'s Request for Reimbursement Related to DAPL Protest Costs
KFYR-TV  -  12 JUL 2017
    BISMARCK, N.D. - The federal government denied North Dakota's request for reimbursement for cost associated with the Dakota Access Pipeline protests according to a spokesperson for Gov. Doug Burgum.
    The request was made directly to President Donald Trump from Burgum and was denied three weeks later.
    In the letter sent to the president Burgum notes that the total costs for protest activity is expected to be $37 million.

Standing Rock Sioux to Spearhead $1 Million in Renewable Energy Projects
Standing Rock Sioux receives inaugural Henry A. Wallace Prize for courage under DAPL fire, plus $250,000, from Wallace Global Fund

by Theresa Braine, Indian Country Today  -  11 JUL 2017
    Throughout much of 2016 and into the winter of 2017, water protectors stood fast against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), even in the face of severe injury. The egregiousness of the actions taken against unarmed water protectors caught the attention of the Wallace Global Fund, founded by Henry A. Wallace, who was Vice President of the United States under Franklin D. Roosevelt. The progressive fund awarded $250,000 to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and pledged to invest an additional $1 million in renewable energy initiatives, to be led by the tribe.
    The Wallace fund also bestowed its first-ever Henry A. Wallace Award to the Standing Rock Sioux for their “unwavering courage” in the face of the assault by a public-private partnership of counterterrorism forces using military methods. Wallace spent his life championing democracy and warning against the dangerous impulses that could undermine it, personified by “those who care only about money and privilege—who obtain political power by pretending to care about ordinary people and democracy—who blame all bad things on disfavored minorities, racial, religious or otherwise. Who use lies, media propaganda and snide conspiracy theories to mislead the people into giving them power,” said Scott Wallace, Co-Chair of the Wallace Global Fund and grandson of the founder....
Enbridge's Line 3 Proposal: Why 13 Young Minnesotans Launched a Legal Fight Against a Pipeline
We bring a unique perspective, because we will live the longest with the consequences of today's decisions.

by Sophia Manolis, StarTribune  -  11 JUL 2017
    Most people have heard of the Dakota Access pipeline, but many Minnesotans may not know that Enbridge, one of the companies behind DAPL, is proposing an enormous pipeline expansion through our state. Enbridge wants to construct a new pipeline called “Line 3” to carry tar-sands oil from Alberta to Superior, Wis.
    The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission will hold hearings on the pipeline proposal this fall and will decide whether to permit it in 2018. While citizens may testify at the hearings, some parties have been formally recognized as “intervenors,” based on having submitted petitions declaring that the project would directly affect them. Intervenors will participate officially in court proceedings, representing their specific opposition to Line 3.
    The Line 3 pipeline would have many harmful effects. High on the list: It would contribute to climate change by expanding fossil-fuel infrastructure and dependency. Therefore, 12 other young people and I petitioned to intervene together in these legal proceedings, because the advancement of climate change would directly, personally and adversely affect our future health, opportunities, livelihoods and well-being. As young people who value clean water and air, and who would like to count on healthy, thriving futures, we feel our voices should be heard in this process. We call ourselves the “youth climate intervenors,” and on July 3, a judge affirmed the merits of our argument, officially granting us intervenor status.
    Young people have never formally intervened in a U.S. pipeline review process, yet we bring...

Based on Recent Rulings: Ten More Cases Dismissed
by Water Protector Legal Collective, via Censored News  -  10 JUL 2017
    A big win for water protectors last week, 10 of the cases arising from October 22, 2016 that were set to go to court on Thursday July 6 and Friday July 7, 2017 were dismissed. The 10 defendants were facing Criminal Trespass and Engaging in a Riot charges and seven of the 10 were represented by the Water Protector Legal Collective (WPLC).
    All of the cases stemmed from the mass arrests that took place in Standing Rock on October 22, 2016 and are much the same to the recent proceedings on June 29, 2017 when a not guilty verdict was reached at the Morton County District Court.
    The motion made by Assistant Morton County State’s Attorney Brian Grosinger read, “Based on the rulings on the trial for June 29, 2017 in respect to the State anticipates substantially the same evidence in these cases.” Upon finding out the order to dismiss was granted WPLC Attorney Brian Fitzpatrick, whose client was one of the 10 defendants, stated: “The State’s Attorney, in my view, acted on his ethical duty to dismiss any case that he cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt. These cases fall into that category. I applaud him for doing the right thing.”...

Why Indigenous Civil Resistance Has a Unique Power
Activists should draw out the connections between local struggles like #NoDAPL and the broader global climate justice movement.

by Molly Wallace, Nation of Change  -  10 JUL 2017
    Published in collaboration with the Peace Science Digest, which summarizes and reflects on current academic research in the field of peace and conflict studies.
    2016 saw the emergence of a powerful movement against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, or DAPL, through land vital to Native communities, especially the Standing Rock Sioux.
    For non-Native people who have not been paying attention to indigenous rights struggles over the past several decades, the #NoDAPL movement may have served as a wake-up call to some of the injustices still confronting these communities.
    For others, as Tom Hastings points out in “Turtle Island 2016 Civil Resistance Snapshot,” in the Journal for the Study of Peace and Conflict, #NoDAPL is simply another in a long line of civil resistance struggles Native communities have mobilized, often successfully, to claim their rights....

Journalist Charged With Stalking For Filming Dakota Access Pipeline: Trial Date 12 July 2017
After using a drone to film construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, police arrested well-known native activist and journalist Myron Dewey, accusing him of using the drone to stalk pipeline workers and security.

by Kevin Gosztola, Mint Press News  -  07 July 2017
    An indigenous journalist known for his work covering the Standing Rock camps and other Native American-led resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) faces a trial on July 12 in Bismarck, North Dakota.
    Myron Dewey was accused by Shannon Eagon, the wife of Doug Eagon, a member of the National Guard, of “stalking.” If convicted of the class A misdemeanor, he faces up to one year in prison and a possible $3,000 fine.
    The complaint [PDF], approved by Assistant State’s Attorney Gabrielle Goter, alleges on October 8, 2016, Dewey “harassed, frightened, and/or intimidated security workers on a job site.” It further suggests he targeted “their vehicles, license plates, and/or where they were working, which made them fear for their lives and their families’ lives.”
    On October 8, police pulled Dewey over and seized a drone, which he used to document how close the pipeline was getting to water sources and sacred indigenous land. One officer claimed it was used in a crime Dewey was involved in earlier that day. He was subsequently charged and turned himself in to the Morton County Police Department on October 14, when “Democracy Now!” host Amy Goodman was also facing charges levied against her for journalism.
    Dewey is Newe-Numah/Paiute-Shoshone from the Walker River Paiute Tribe, Agui Diccutta Band (Trout Eaters) and Temoke Shoshone. He founded Digital Smoke Signals, which was created to “indigenize” media through indigenous voices that could produce representations of their cultural core values.
    He recently produced the third part of a feature documentary, “Awake, A Dream From Standing Rock,” to get the perspective of water protectors out to a wide audience. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival....
Federal Court Blocks Trump EPA on Air Pollution
by Juliet Eilperin and Steven Mufson, The Washington Post  -  03 JUL 2017
    An appeals court Monday struck down the Environmental Protection Agency’s 90-day suspension of new emission standards on oil and gas wells, a decision that could set back the Trump administration’s broad legal strategy for rolling back Obama-era rules.
    In a 2-to-1 ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit concluded that the EPA had the right to reconsider a 2016 rule limiting methane and smog-forming pollutants emitted by oil and gas wells but could not delay the effective date while it sought to rewrite the regulation.
    The agency has proposed extending the initial delay to two years. Next Monday, there will be a separate administrative public hearing on that suspension.
    “The court’s ruling is yet another reminder, now in the context of environmental protection, that the federal judiciary remains a significant obstacle to the president’s desire to order immediate change,” Richard Lazarus, an environmental-law professor at Harvard Law School, said in an email.
    “The D.C. Circuit’s ruling today makes clear that neither the president nor his EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, can by fiat unilaterally and instantaneously repeal or otherwise stay the effectiveness of the environmental protection rules put into place during the Obama administration,” he added....

Standing Rock's Fight Against Dakota Pipeline Continues While Tribe Plans for a Fossil-Free Future
Amy Goodman, Democracy NOW!  -  04 JUL 2017
    The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe recently won a major legal victory in federal court which may have the power to force the shutdown of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. District Judge James Boasberg ruled Wednesday that the Trump administration failed to conduct an adequate environmental review of the pipeline, after President Trump ordered the Army Corps to fast-track and greenlight its approval. The judge requested additional briefings next week on whether the pipeline should be shut off until the completion of a full review of a potential oil spill’s impacts on fishing and hunting rights, as well as environmental justice. The pipeline faced months of massive resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, members of hundreds of other indigenous tribes from across the Americas, as well as non-Native allies. We speak with Standing Rock Sioux Chair Dave Archambault II and Nick Tilsen, executive director of the Thunder Valley Community Development Corporation and a citizen of the Oglala Lakota Nation on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota....  
Grandson of Former VP Henry A. Wallace on Standing Rock's Fossil-Free Future & American Fascism
Amy Goodman, Democracy NOW!  -  04 JUL 2017
    As we continue to look at how the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is embracing renewable energy, we turn now to Scott Wallace and Ellen Dorsey of the Wallace Global Fund. The fund recently awarded the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe the inaugural Henry A. Wallace Award and a $1 million investment in renewable energy projects led by the tribe. The award is named after Scott Wallace’s grandfather Henry A. Wallace, who served as vice president under Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1941 to 1945. In 1944, Wallace published an iconic article in The New York Times titled “The Danger of American Fascism.” He wrote, "American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact."...

Dakota Access Security Firm's Top Adviser Led Military Intelligence Efforts for 1992 LA Riots
by Steve Horn and Curtis Waltman, DESMOG  -  05 JUL 2017
    Retired Major General James “Spider” Marks chairs the advisory board for TigerSwan, a private security firm hired by Energy Transfer Partners to help police protests of the Dakota Access pipeline — an approach for which Marks has shown vocal support.
    DeSmog has found that Marks also headed up intelligence efforts for the task force which brought over 10,000 U.S. military troops to police the 1992 riots following the acquittal of Los Angeles Police Department members involved in beating Rodney King. In addition, Marks, a long-time military analyst for CNN, led intelligence-gathering efforts for the U.S. military’s 2003 “shock and awe” campaign in Iraq, which was dubbed “Operation Iraqi Liberation.”
    In recent months, Marks has endorsed Dakota Access and its southern leg, the Bayou Bridge pipeline. He has shown this support by writing op-ed pieces published in various newspapers and on the website of a pro-Dakota Access coalition run by a PR firm funded by Energy Transfer Partners.
     “I spent a good portion of my adult life in Iraq, and I must tell you that the similarities are stark,” Marks said in November of the anti-Dakota Access encampment set up by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
    Marks, according to The Washington Times, traveled to Standing Rock “as an adviser to the Midwest Alliance for Infrastructure Now” (MAIN), a pro-pipeline front group run by the Republican Party public relations firm, DCI Group.
    “General Marks is still an adviser to the coalition. He is given a modest stipend for his time and expertise,” DCI Group's Craig Stevens told DeSmog of Marks' relationship with MAIN. “TigerSwan is not a member of the Coalition nor does the Coalition receive any funding from them.” Stevens manages public relations efforts for MAIN and is the crisis management lead for DCI.
    In February, Marks traveled to Louisiana to speak in favor of the Bayou Bridge pipeline at a Louisiana Department of Natural Resources hearing....  
France to End Sales of Gasoline, Diesel Vehicles by 2040
by Devin Henry, The Hill  -  06 JUL 2017
    France is preparing to end the sale of gasoline and diesel vehicles by 2040 as a way of reaching its emissions targets under the Paris climate agreement.
    Nicolas Hulot, the Ecology Minister under new French President Emmanuel Macron, announced the “tough” goal on Thursday, Agence France-Presse reports.
    "We are announcing an end to the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2040," said Hulot, who called the plan a "veritable revolution.”
    Macron has emerged as one of the Paris agreement’s biggest supporters in the wake of President Trump’s June decision to pull the United States out of the deal.
    Hulot announced last month that France would stop granting new licenses for oil and gas exploration both within France and in its overseas territories.
    Macron also said he would welcome American climate scientists to come to his country to continue their research....

France Will Ban Fossil Fuel-Powered Vehicles by 2040
Energy Minister Nicolas Hulot said the country wants to be the world’s “number one green economy.”

by E. A. Crunden, ThinkProgress  -  06 JUL 2017
    France plans to fully end the sale of fossil fuel-powered vehicles by 2040 in an effort to become a carbon-neutral nation, Energy Minister Nicolas Hulot announced Thursday in Paris.
    Aiming to be the world’s “number one green economy,” Hulot said gas and diesel-powered vehicles would be phased out over the course of the next two and a half decades, part of a larger effort to meet targets set by the Paris climate agreement. Coal-fired power plants will be eliminated, Hulot said, and citizens will be encouraged to produce their own energy, especially those who own homes. France will also introduce tax incentives — likely in the form of a pollution tax on aging vehicles, or a tax break tied to the purchase of new, cleaner cars — under the ambitious Climate Plan, in addition to ending oil and gas exploration on French land. While Hulot did not detail how France would enact these plans, he emphasized that the “conditions” necessary to make them happen were clearly laid out by the plan....

A Word About Brenda Norrell and Censored News
Al Swilling, SENAA International - 14 FEB 2015
   For those wondering why the vast majority of shared posts on SENAA International's Web site and Facebook page are from Brenda Norrell's Censored News, it's very simple—and very complex. For many years, Brenda Norrell was a major journalist for (forgive me, Brenda) Indian Country Today (ICT) until they censored Brenda's articles and terminated her without cause. After leaving Indian Country Today, Brenda created the appropriately named Censored News.
   While at ICT, Brenda was a voice for the Dineh (Navajo) people at Black Mesa, Arizona, where bed partners  Peabody  Coal  and  the  BIA  were trying to forcibly remove Dineh residents from their ancestral homes in order to strip mine the land of its coal. That greed took the form of a contrived, fictional "land dispute" between Dineh' and Hopi....

What Is a Worldwide Prayer Gathering?

A Worldwide Prayer Gathering is not so much a physical gathering into one physical location as it is the spiritual gathering of individuals and groups from around the world who are of one mind and one accord into one spiritual place for a common purpose, which is to ask for the Creator's help to bring about the circumstances that will accomplish our common goal according to His promise.

LSO MANAGEMENT: What They Are
and What to Do About Them

SENAA International  -  16 FEB 2010
  
Introduction
  
The computing public is becoming increasingly aware of the existence of Local Shared Objects (LSOs), also called "Flash cookies" or "Persistent Identification Elements" (PIEs), the dangers they pose, and the unethical ways that they are placed on our machines. LSOs are the busybodies of  the   Internet,   sticking  their  noses  in   your   personal business  at every opportunity  without  your  knowledge  or consent; and like most busybodies, they're being found out.
   With growing public awareness of LSOs comes a growing demand for effective, real time control of them. Most LSO management solutions offer management or deletion of LSOs after potentially malicious ones have had time to do their damage. Stand-alone LSO management utilities do not offer real time protection, either. This tutorial provides real-time management of LSOs....

Medical Fund for Vanessa (Sioux Z)
GoFundMe - 27 NOV 2016

    Vanessa has been on the front lines fighting DAPL and working security for Oceti Sakowin since September 11. During the action on November 20 at the Backwater bridge, she was intentionally shot in the eye with a tear gas canister from 6 feet away. It was aimed directly at her face by a Morton County officer. She was seen at Bismarck Sanford hospital and released because she had no insurance. She has a detached retina and needs surgery to ensure her vision. She is now seeking medical attention in Fargo. Donations will be used for the cost of the 2 ER visits, surgery, medications, and recovery.
