Ward Valley and Yucca Mountain Nuclear waste
Written by gail figueroa   
Sunday, 17 May 2009
I just finished looking at a documentary on FSTV about  the fedral gov't stealing Native Land for nuclear waste sites and the Ward Valley Standoff by members of the Western Shoshone, Mohave and Colorado River Indian Nations that lasted over 120 days. I also saw in that documentary people who worked in the urainum mines who are dieing of cancer.  Brothers and sisters this is why we all went on the Longest Walk 2.  I just wanted to comment that I thank the Creator for AIM and all the brothers and sisters who partisipated and if called to walk again or stand by those in need I know we will be there ready to face what ever may happen with prayers on our lips, non violently.  Today a friend told me that the Supai Nation is haveing problems because urainum was discovered on their land.  This may be heresay but if anyone knows anything  about this please post something.  We are still in a battle for Native Rights.  Though the Longest Walk ended we must still keep informed and be ready to support our brothers and sisters when ever necessary.  My heart is still on the Longrst Walk and with all of you.   Aho,  Blessings to all,     Good Insight Woman

A Letter To MyFriend, Lewis “Mucaw” Jefferson
November 28, 2008

I just found out what happened.


 I want to tell u that im not mad at u, although at first i was.
I have so many plans for the future and i had u in mind to be a fellow comandante.
I trusted u with my life.
I always promised you that i would be there to help u fight for your people with you.
All you had to do was call me. I'ld be there.


 I wish you had called me before you did this.
I would have done ANYTHING to prevent it.
But I know how you feel, and the pain you felt.
You and I spent months together EVERY day and we talked about EVERYTHING.
I wish i had a copy of that poem you had read me, but i guess i'll just have to take my memories word that it was a good 1.


 All I'm left with are the memories we had.
I sang with you walking across this country.
Sun up to sun down, we saw everything like a dream.
You taught me some of the most beautiful songs i'd ever heard.
I'll never forget that 1 day when it was POURING down rain, and you and i had walked next to each other the whole day singing birdsongs together.
We must have sang for 10 hours straight, never once having sang the same song twice.
Do you remember how the sun came out just as we were on our last half mile and u said,"That's beautiful.. Bout fucking time the sun came out, im drenched."lol. ...
-That was my favorite moment i had with you.
I know that memories fade, but I will ALWAYS hold on to that one.


 As The Tears Run Down My Face,

I Love You Brother.

…Make that call, and I'll be there~

Man found dead near train tracks

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Imperial County sheriff’s officials are investigating the death of a man whose body was found early Wednesday morning next to railroad tracks near Yuma.

According to Charles Lucas, supervising deputy coroner with the Imperial County Sheriff’sOffice, the cause of the death is pending an autopsy, but the body has been identified as 21-year-old Lewis Jefferson of Bard.

“Preliminary information indicates he was struck by a train. The incident is still under investigation,” Lucas said.

Quechan elder Preston Arrow-Weed told The Sun that the victim is his grandson, a young traditional singer and aspiring spiritual leader. Arrow-Weed said that his grandson, who went by his traditional name “Mucaw” had filed to run for a seat on the tribal council in the upcoming election.

Lucas said the the incident happened at about 4:30 a.m. on the Quechan Reservation next to the tracks by the old agriculture inspection station, near the Ocean-to-Ocean Bridge.

Jefferson was known in the Quechan Tribe for his traditional singing, as well as for taking part in long walks supporting various issues. He walked from here to Gila Bend in support of the Peace and Dignity Project, according to Arrow-Weed.

More recently Jefferson made local headlines for walking from Flagstaff to Washington, D.C., with The Longest Walk 2. Arrow-Weed said Jefferson participated to bring attention to preservation of American Indian sacred sites.

Local tribal members taking part in The Longest Walk
BY DARIN FENGER, SUN STAFF WRITER
May17, 2008 - 2:08PM

Armed with a tin can rattle in his hand and the traditional songs of family and tribein his heart, a young Quechan man is delivering a message to Washington, D.C.completely on foot.



Lewis Jefferson, who will turn 21 on the road next month, started walking east in late March. That's when the budding traditional singer joined a small band of folks dedicated to spreading the word about protecting the sacred lands of native people.



Together Jefferson and his comrades make up The Longest Walk 2, a historic march spanning San Francisco to Washington,D.C., that began in early February and is expected to end in late July.



Jefferson, a member of the local Quechan Indian Tribe, joined the walk March 22 in Flagstaff. Since then he's made a few phone calls back to his grandfather, a tribal elder who says he couldn't be more proud of Jefferson's political and spiritual path.



"He is out there representing all of the Quechan people," said Preston Arrow-Weed, both an elder and traditional singer." Can you imagine carrying the songs of over 3,000 people? There is a lot of responsibility on his shoulders."



Jefferson, who often goes by the native name "Mucaw" that Arrow-Weed gave him at birth, has been singing with the grandfather and other elders since Jefferson was just a tyke. Elder Milton Jefferson Sr. recalled: "He would stay up all night and sing with us, even when he was just 9!"



In videos documenting The Longest Walk 2 young Jefferson can often be heard singing away as the group proceeds throughtown after town. "He's told me on the phone, 'Grandpa I've sang through the wind, I've sang through the rain and I've sang through the snow,'"Arrow-Weed said. "He said he's always worried about the spirit of the people. He says there are ups and downs, sometimes it seems like they lose direction or sometimes they lose their goal, but they always come back again. He always says 'We're going to make it!'"



Although Jefferson is walking in support of sacred sites in general Arrow-Weed said his grandson is also voicing his protest against the Quechan tribe building a casino on land many elders consider highly sacred.



"When he left he told me, 'I want to prove to the world that Quechans are not traitors,'" the grandfather said, "He said, 'The Quechan are not going to give up their sacred land.'"



The Sun was not able to reach Quechan Tribal President Mike Jackson Sr., who did return calls to his office. Jackson has told The Sun in the past: "We will not destroy our heritage for the casino. We've told our people that from the beginning. We're not here to destroy our past, but to make for a future."



The Longest Walk 2 follows in the same footsteps of a similar walk held 30 years ago. The walk is broken up in south and north routes and is open to people of any ethnic background who care about the environment and sacred sites. The event is organized by famed American Indian activist Dennis Banks, best known for co-founding the American Indian Movement.



The movement's mission statement sums up their vision this way:
- "We walk with the message: All Life is Sacred, Save Mother Earth."
- "We shall walk for the Seventh Generation, for our youth, for peace, for justice, forhealing of Mother Earth, for the healing of our people suffering from diabetes, heart conditions, alcoholism, drug addiction, and other diseases."



"It's important we make people more aware," said Vernon Smith, another Quechan elder, who added that a group of elders plan to meet up with the walkers in D.C. "If we were 20 to 30 years younger we'd be out there, too."



Arrow-Weed responded with the comment that elders sometimes need to let the younger ones step up to new duties in order to learn and grow. "There is a certain time when you have to turn things over," Arrow-Weed said. "Now is the time."



While most participants at least aim to complete the entire walk many people simply join the journey for a segment of the route or just for the bit that passes through their community. Arrow-Weed described how the walkers are often treated, most often in reservation towns, to a political rally to share their stories or to spiritual ceremonies for sharing prayers.



See the walkers' faces and hear their stories yourself. Go to www.thelongestwalk.org and follow along through photos, videos and diaries as the walkers make their way down the road.



Several other Quechan walkers originally at Jefferson's side have sincere turned home. But he's about to have some familiar faces arrive on the scene. Three fellow tribal members plan to meet up with the south route June 10 in Louisiana.



Billy Rea, a 28-year-old traditional singer, will be marching with his mother, but he says he'll be out there on the highway with his 2-year-old son in his heart.



"I'm doing this for my son as much as I am for my people," Rea explained. "When he grows up I want him to have his culture and his traditions because it's going to keep him on the Red Road, on the right path. I want, when he grows up older, that there will be sacred lands here for him."



Rea grew up in San Diego, but came to the Quechan reservation when he was 10 and began learning traditional ways from his grandmother. Years of drugs and gangs, however, led him in and out of prison and he was most recently released just two months ago. But he says that it's now time to dedicate his life to something healthier, joining the tribal elders in their fight to preserve an ancient way of life. Rea added that through The Longest Walk, he also wants to set a good example for his friends, both here and back in prison. 



"I have a lot of friends and a lot of them are corrupted, but they are part of our people, too," he said, explaining that he tries to include friends in traditional ceremonies like sweat lodges or singing. "I try to teach them. I take them out fishing, starting them out with something small. I'm just trying to teach them the little bit I know."



His friends in prison are planning to hold sweat lodges in Rea's honor while he's doing the walk.



Yolanda Escalanti, a Quechan woman who hasrecently taken to studying traditions with her tribal elders, is another walker who will soon join Jefferson. "Our sacred sites are diminishing and they have no meaning to a lot of people, especially our own younger generations. We need to change that," Escalanti said. "This walk is also important because people say that Native Americans are considered politically weak. Thisis our chance to change that and take our message to congress."



Escalanti and Rea's mother plan to start training for their long trip by walking at the Quechan Diabetes Walking Park.



Escalanti isn't a singer or music maker, so instead of a musical instrument, she plans to carry something else on The Longest Walk. "I'm going to carry a picture of my great-grandmother," she said with clear pride. Escalanti's great-grandmother was involved in the tribe's fight years ago to save another local sacred site - Sleepy Hollow. The late matriarch even took her fight in person to the courts of San Diego.



"I think if she was alive she would say, 'You are doing the right thing. Keep fighting for our land,'" Escalanti said. "So that's what I'm going to do and they're not going to stop us."

UCBerkeley begins destruction of Sacred site

UC Berkeley Begins Destruction of Native American Sacred Site

Indigenous Peoples Decry Human Rights Abuses. Tree Sitters Call for Support

______________________________________________________________________

BERKELEY, CA- University of California police moved in yesterday morning and cut many limbs and branches of a Redwood tree and cut down twelve Oak trees that have been protected by tree-sitting protesters for the last 21 months. Five people were arrested as they peacefully pleaded with arborists not to destroying the trees of the Memorial Oak Grove deemed a sacred burial site to Ohlone Indians.
 Twelve trees were cut today and the University says they will continue cutting 46 over the weekend. Four protesters remain in a single Redwood tree in the center of the grove. Arborists trimmed most of the branches from the Redwood tree occupied by the four remaining tree sitters. Cutting the branches made it virtually impossible for the tree sitters to move from tree to tree. A spokesman for the campus said that within three days, the University would no longer honor its agreement to ensure they had adequate nutrition and water. The tree sitters currently only have one liter of water to share between four people as they sit in 90 degree heat.

The Memorial Oak Grove is regarded as a sacred place to Native American people and is documented as such by UC Berkeley's own Anthropology Department. There is evidence of 2 shell mounds sites in the area, with 19 ancestral remains found within them. Along with UC Berkeley's attempt to develop on a sacred place, they are guilty of housing over 17,000 sacred remains and objects.  UCB currently holds the largest human remains collection in the United States of which it is not in compliance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA)

"I brought my five year old daughter and two month old son out today to bear witness to the massacre of sacred life," said Morning Star Gali of the Pit River Tribe and co-chair of Advocates to Protect Sacred Sites. "The cops responded by yelling to move them behind the median. I asked if they would stand by as complacent if it was their grandmother's gravesites being desecrated.  I want my children here to witness the destruction of sacred life and how important it is to protect it. I wanted them to witness the cops, arborists and UC Officials that participated and cheered as the trees came crashing down from bulldozers. This exhibits the ongoing Human Rights abuses committed by the University. They refuse to comply with NAGPRA by holding 13,000 of our ancestors remains hostage, they illegally reorganized NAGPRA with no tribal consultation and now they continue to desecrate sacred burial grounds."

An indigenous delegation has asked UC officials for pieces of the oldest tree, the grandmother tree where participants of the Longest Walk II placed tobacco and prayers, to be handed over, so as to be used in traditional ceremonies. They are also requesting access to the grove in order to offer prayers and tobacco, to the fallen trees and the site itself. Chief of police Victoria Harrison began to use these request as a negotiating tool to get the last four protestors out of the Redwood tree. "We are making it clear that this is our religious right to gather pieces of the trees and to enter the grove for ceremony. This is not part of a negotiation process for the removal of the treesitters," said  Gali. A prayer circle is being scheduled Sunday at 2pm, access is still being demanded.

The Memorial Grove is a native Coast Live Oak ecosystem. Native oaks support the most complex terrestrial ecosystems in California.  The California Native Plant Society CNPS has stated that the Memorial Oak Grove is "an important gene bank for the Coast Live Oak." Every one of the oaks in the grove should be protect by law and the Berkeley Coast Live Oak moratorium forbids cutting mature Coast Live Oaks in Berkeley. UC refuses to recognize the law. The grove is also part of a National Historic Site. The Stadium and landscape is a memorial to Californians who died in World War I.

The tree sitters are urging people to come and show support for the trees and bear witness to the University of California's blatant disregard to sacred sites and native ecosystems.

Join the community to honor life Sunday (9/7/08) 2pm at the Oak grove.

Slow POISONING OF MANKIND
Written by Steve Combes   
Sunday, 27 July 2008
This is pretty interesting.

We the public do not want to be rats in one giant experiment!

MSG. The food additive MSG (Mono-Sodium Glutamate) is a slow poison. MSG hides behind 25 or more names, such as 'Natural Flavoring.'

MSG is even in your favorite coffee from Tim Horton's and Starbucks coffee shops!

I wondered if there could be an actual chemical causing the massive obesity epidemic, and so did a friend of mine, John Erb. He was a research assistant at the University of Waterloo in Ontario , Canada , and spent years working for the government. He made an amazing discovery while going through scientific journals for a book he was writing called The Slow Poisoning of America .

In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes test studies. No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so scientists have to create them. They make these creatures morbidly obese by injecting them with MSG when they are first born.

The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and perhaps humans) to become obese. They even have a name for the fat rodents they create: 'MSG-Treated Rats.'

When I heard this, I was shocked. I went into my kitchen and checked the cupboards and the refrigerator. MSG was in everything -- the Campbell 's soups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays flavored potato chips, Top Ramen, Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper, Heinz canned gravy, Swanson frozen prepared meals, and Kraft salad dressings, especially the 'healthy low-fat' ones.

The items that didn't have MSG marked on the product label had something called 'Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein,' which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate.

It was shocking to see just how many of the foods we feed our children everyday are filled with this stuff. MSG is hidden under many different names in order to fool those who read the ingredient list, so that they don't catch on. (Other names for MSG are 'Accent, 'Aginomoto,' 'Natural Meat Tenderizer,' etc.)

But it didn't stop there.

When our family went out to eat, we started asking at the restaurants what menu items contained MSG. Many employees, even the managers, swore they didn't use MSG.

But when we ask for the ingredient list, which they grudgingly provided, sure enough, MSG and Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein were everywhere.

Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's, Taco Bell, every restaurant -- even the sit-down eateries like TGIF, Chili's,

Applebee's, and Denny's -- use MSG in abundance. Kentucky Fried Chicken seemed to be the WORST offender: MSG was in every chicken dish, salad dressing. and gravy. No wonder I loved to eat that

coating on the skin -- their secret spice was MSG!

So why is MSG in so many of the foods we eat? Is it a preservative, or a vitamin?

Not according to my friend John Erb. In his book The Slow Poisoning of America , he said that MSG is added to food for the addictive effect it has on the human body.

Even the propaganda website sponsored by the food manufacturers lobby group supporting MSG explains that the reason they add it to food is to make people eat more.

A study of the elderly showed that older people eat more of the foods that it is added to. The Glutamate Association lobbying group says eating more is a benefit to the elderly, but what does it do to the rest of us?

'Betcha can't eat [just] one,' takes on a whole new meaning where MSG is concerned! And we wonder why the nation is overweight!

MSG manufacturers themselves admit that it addicts people to their products. It makes people choose their product over others, and makes people eat more of it than they would if MSG wasn't added.

Not only is MSG scientifically proven to cause obesity, it is an addictive substance. Since its introduction into the American food supply fifty years ago, MSG has been added in larger and larger doses to the pre-packaged meals, soups, snacks, and fast foods we are tempted to eat everyday.

The FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food. They claim it's safe to eat in any amount. But how can they claim it's safe when there are hundreds of scientific studies with titles like these:

'The monosodium glutamate (MSG) obese rat as a model for the study of exercise in obesity.' Gobatto CA, Mello MA, Souza CT , Ribeiro IA. Res Commun Mol Pathol Pharmacol. 2002.

'Adrenalectomy abolishes the food-induced hypothalamic serotonin release in both normal and monosodium glutamate-obese rats.' Guimaraes RB, Telles MM, Coelho VB, Mori C, Nascimento CM, Ribeiro.

Brain Res Bull. 2002 Aug.

'Obesity induced by neonatal monosodium glutamate treatment in spontaneously hypertensive rats: An animal model of multiple risk factors.' Iwase M, Yamamoto M, Iino K, Ichikawa K, Shinohara N, Yoshinari Fujishima. Hypertens Res. 1998 Mar.

'Hypothalamic lesion induced by injection of monosodium glutamate in suckling period and subsequent development of obesity.' Tanaka K, Shimada M, Nakao K Kusunoki. Exp Neurol. 1978 Oct.

No, the date of that last study was not a typo; it was published in 1978. Both the 'medical research community' and 'food manufacturers' have known about the side effects of MSG for decades.

Many more of the studies mentioned in John Erb's book link MSG to diabetes, migraines and headaches, autism, ADHD, and even Alzheimer's.

So what can we do to stop the food manufactures from dumping this fattening and addictive MSG into our food supply and causing the obesity epidemic we now see?

Several months ago, John Erb took his book and his concerns to one of the highest government health officials in Canada . While he was sitting in the government office, the official told him, 'Sure, I know how bad MSG is. I wouldn't touch the stuff.' But this top-level government official refuses to tell the public what he knows.

The big media doesn't want to tell the public either, fearing issues with their advertisers. It seems that the fallout on the fast food industry may hurt their profit margin. The food producers and restaurants have been addicting us to their products for years, and now we are paying the price for it. Our children should not be cursed with obesity caused by an addictive food additive.

But what can I do about it? I'm just one voice! What can I do to stop the poisoning of our children, while our governments are insuring financial protection for the industry that is poisoning us?

This message is going out to everyone I know in an attempt to tell you the truth that the corporate-owned politicians and media won't tell you.

The best way you can help to save yourself and your children from this drug-induced epidemic is to forward this article to everyone. With any luck, it will circle the globe before politicians can pass the legislation protecting those who are poisoning us.

The food industry learned a lot from the tobacco industry. Imagine if big tobacco had a bill like this in place before someone blew the whistle on nicotine?

If you are one of the few who can still believe that MSG is good for us and you don't believe what John Erb has to say, see for yourself. Go to the National Library of Medicine at www.pubmed.com .

Type in the words 'MSG Obese' and read a few of the 115 medical studies that appear.

We the public do not want to be rats in one giant experiment, and we do not approve of food that makes us into a nation of obese, lethargic, addicted sheep, feeding the food industry's bottom line while waiting for the heart transplant, the diabetic-induced amputation, blindness, or other obesity-

induced, life-threatening disorders.

With your help we can put an end to this poison.

Do your part in sending this message out by word of mouth, e-mail, or by distribution of this printout to your friends all over the world and stop this 'Slow Poisoning of Mankind' by the packaged food industry.

Blowing the whistle on MSG is our responsibility, so get the word out.

We need your help out here. The bus costs $200 to fill up on gas and the miles per gallon are about 12 miles per. We need your help getting the gas to fillup along the way. If you can help out please contact me at (805) 258-2519 and we can work out a way to send us some money on the road so we can conplete our mission. Any amount of funds will help. Please don't go to the Longest Walk web site to donate as we will probably not see those funds in time.

Thank you for all your help

Roman Becerra
