BREAKING Seattle City Council Passes Resolution Opposing Keystone XL Pipeline

BREAKING Seattle City Council Passes Resolution Opposing Keystone XL Pipeline

April 3 2017 Seattle, WA – The Seattle city council has unanimously passed a resolution opposing the construction on the Keystone XL pipeline. The resolution was sponsored by council-member Kshama Sawant. The resolution, which was crafted by the same coalition that brought Seattle’s ordinance to divest $3 billion from Wells Fargo over its investment in the Dakota Access pipeline, states the Seattle City Council’s opposition to the Keystone XL Pipeline, and; “request[s] the Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) reject bids to provide banking services to the City of Seattle from financial institutions that provide credit level facilities or project-level loans to TransCanada.” The proposed Keystone XL pipeline is a 1,179-mile long pipeline that would run from the oil sands in Alberta to Nebraska where it would link to an existing pipeline on-route to the Gulf Coast for export.

Solidarity Actions Against Dakota Access Pipeline Held in Europe

Solidarity Actions Against Dakota Access Pipeline Held in Europe

On March 30th, people in four European countries came together in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) for an online day of action targeting four banks invested in the DAPL: Deutsche Bank in Germany, Intesa San Paolo Bank in Italy, BBVA in Spain, and Credit Suisse in Switzerland. This action comes on the heels of tribes, cities, and banks divesting from the DAPL. Just weeks before the action, the Sami people pushed Norway to divest state pension funds from DAPL. This was only a day after the city of San Francisco announced its divestment plans. News of major divestments from the DAPL, as well as the companies funding DAPL, is breaking every day. This online day of action that placed pressure on European banks closed out a month that began with Native Nations Rise, where the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and other grassroots Indigenous leaders camped and marched on Washington, D.C. Messages like, “@DeutscheBank! #EnvironmentalRacism and #TreatyViolations are not...

A Race Construct by Damon Corrie

A Race Construct by Damon Corrie

White Skin Developed in Europe Only As Recently as 8,000 Years Ago Say Anthropologists THIS IS SAYING THAT PRIOR TO 8,000 YEARS AGO ‘WHITE SKINNED PEOPLE’- AS A RACE POSSESSING THAT COMMON SKIN COLOUR AS WE KNOW EUROPEANS TODAY – LITERALLY DID NOT EXIST (only people of every other skin color – except for the rare Albino here & there). Makes the description of them (‘white people’) by wise indigenous elders of other races as óur youngest brothers’ prove to be accurate again…no wonder they know so little of deep spiritual matters…they are the ‘curious children’ of mankind. Interesting, I always suspected that Caucasoids (as in the 3 main phenotypes formerly recognized of – Negroid, Mongoloid & Caucasoid) were the youngest ‘race’ of human beings (why else would they have only been able to naturally hold such a tiny portion of the Earth for themselves before the advantage of technology turned them into murdering Global land thieves…compared to other skin hues – namely Europe, which is merely the Western...
