Political activism on behalf of indigenous women rooted in chief's frightening personal experience - The Globe and Mail Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Political activism on behalf of indigenous women rooted in chief's frightening personal experience - The Globe and Mail: Frightened, she ran away from him, and it was just then that a car pulled up. The driver rolled down his window and asked if the man was bothering her. She jumped in the car and felt relief. But as the car sped down Portage Avenue, it dawned on Ms. North Wilson that, in her haste, she had traded one dangerous situation for another.

The driver turned to her and said, “Don’t be alarmed. I’m from Alberta and you’re in a stolen car.” She contemplated rolling out of the moving vehicle, but instead asked the man to take her to the home where she was billeting. After they pulled up and she refused to let him stay overnight, he told her: “Well, then, I’m going to need something for the ride.” He unbuckled his seat belt and planted a kiss on her. Ms. North Wilson fled the car, shaken.

Support Rahm Recall Bill HB4356 - Action Network Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Support Rahm Recall Bill HB4356 - Action Network: Representative democracy can only function when the electorate possesses free access to the information it needs to select its leaders and hold them accountable for their actions at the ballot box.

Chicago's Mayor Rahm Emanuel's re-election in the spring of 2015 took place while the Mayor's Office was actively suppressing the release of information crucial to the electorate's evaluation of whether Emanuel deserved to be returned to office.

Chicago voters need to have the legal option to hold a recall election under circumstances like this. We need HB4356 to become a state law.

Anne Frank's Diary... And Hitler's Mein Kampf Hit The Public Domain In Europe - Despite Concerns About Both | Techdirt Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Anne Frank's Diary... And Hitler's Mein Kampf Hit The Public Domain In Europe - Despite Concerns About Both | Techdirt: As we noted a couple months ago, the Anne Frank Foundation (Anne Frank Fonds) has been lying and telling people that Frank's father, Otto Frank, is a co-author of the diary and therefore the copyright doesn't expire until 70 years after his death. Otto Frank, obviously, did quite a lot to get his daughter's diaries published and spread around the world. And for that, people should be thankful. But the attempt to keep the work under copyright is shameful and pure copyfraud, and it tarnishes the image of the Anne Frank Fonds, which has done much good in the world.

Oregon under attack: Militia aims to 'overthrow government' local official says Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Oregon under attack: Militia aims to 'overthrow government' local official says:

[ibtimes.co.uk] -- Local police have said that they do not intend to head to the scene, even to keep on eye on the men, ABC News
reported. However, Barney County Sheriff David M Ward told reporters
that authorities from several law enforcement organisations were
monitoring the situation.

In a statement on 3 January, Ward said,
"These men came to Harney County claiming to be part of militia groups
supporting local ranchers. When in reality these men had alternative
motives, to attempt to overthrow the county and federal government in
hopes to spark a movement across the United States."

However, one
of the protesters at the entrance of the refuge, Jon Ritzheimer of
Phoenix, claims the men are not blocking access to the grounds and have
not broken any laws. In a video posted on Facebook, Ritzheimer said,
"There's Oregon county residents coming here, the refuge is open,
there's zero no-trespassing signs, we're breaking no laws. We're out
here on public lands."

According to the Los Angeles Times,
Ritzheimer warned law enforcement officials of creating "another Ruby
Ridge," in reference to a deadly siege in 1992 in northern Idaho between
backwoods cabin dweller Randy Weaver and Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI) agents. "We will not fire unless fired upon, but we
will stand and defend the Cons...

#Paiute land at issue in #Oregon militia showdown | World War 4 Report Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Paiute land at issue in Oregon militia showdown | World War 4 Report: A sympathetic right-wing website, The Last Refuge, provides an historical outline of the conflict over the lands in question, beginning: "The Harney Basin (were [sic] the Hammond ranch is established) was settled in the 1870’s. The valley was settled by multiple ranchers and was known to have run over 300,000 head of cattle... In 1908 President Theodor [sic] Roosevelt, in a political scheme, create an 'Indian reservation' around the Malheur, Mud & Harney Lakes and declared it 'as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds'. Later this 'Indian reservation' (without Indians) became the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge." In other words, the land was not "settled" before white ranchers arrived, and the "Indian reservation" (in scare quotes, of course) was a scam to establish federal control of the area. The names of the Harney Basin's indigenous peoples are not even mentioned.

Indian Country Today Media Network, as you might guess, portrays it rather differently. The Malheur Indian Reservation was actually established in 1872 by President Ulysses S. Grant for the Northern Paiute. White settler encroachment on the reservation resulted in the Bannock War of 1878, which ended with the surrender of the Paiutes and Bannocks, and their "removal" to the Yakama Reservation in Washington Territory. The Burns Paiute Reservation, a tiny patch of land in the north of the basin, is a surviving fragment of the original reservation. The rest of it seems to have wound up in the hands of private ranchers, the BLM and the Wildlife Refuge.

Gil Cardinal [footprints] | Windspeaker - AMMSA: Indigenous news, issues and culture. Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Gil Cardinal [footprints] | Windspeaker - AMMSA: Indigenous news, issues and culture.: The 1987 internationally-acclaimed self-portrait records his heartrending journey to find his Aboriginal roots and birth family.

After 35 years of living in the white world, raised in a non-Aboriginal foster family, Cardinal is finally wondering about his childhood; why he’s so detached and so guarded as an adult. He knows nothing of his early life, and chafes while a child welfare worker thumbs through a two-inch file, unwilling to give him details beyond his mother’s name and the fact she had problems with alcohol.

“Please do not protect me,” he tells her when she hesitates to divulge more, worried she will reveal information that will upset him. Adhering to government policy, she deprives him of important life details “to protect other people involved.”

Jon Danzig - → Is political pride hurting Britain's needy?... | Facebook Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Jon Danzig - → Is political pride hurting Britain's needy?... | Facebook: The EU parliament agreed to provide aid for those suffering extreme poverty in the EU. The EU offered up to �22 million to help subsidise Britain’s food banks, but the money was blocked by the UK government.

Food-bank use in Britain is at record levels, with the Trussell Trust charity running over 400 food banks across the country. More than one million food parcels, each providing enough food for three days, were given out between 2014 and 2015, more than 400,000 of which went to children.

Thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK. According to the Trussell Trust, 1 in 5 mums in Britain regularly skip meals to feed their children.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, urged the Prime Minister to reverse the decision to reject EU funds for food banks, but to no avail.

Oregon Standoff - Bundy Family and Extremist Militias Take Over Federal Property in Oregon Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Oregon Standoff - Bundy Family and Extremist Militias Take Over Federal Property in Oregon: The Bundy family of Nevada joined with hard-core militiamen Saturday to take over the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, vowing to occupy the remote federal outpost 30 miles southeast of Burns for years. The occupation came shortly after an estimated 300 marchers—militia and local citizens both—paraded through Burns to protest the prosecution of two Harney County ranchers, Dwight Hammond Jr. and Steven Hammond, who are to report to prison on Monday. Among the occupiers is Ammon Bundy, son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, and two of his brothers. Militia members at the refuge claimed they had as many as 100 supporters with them. The refuge, federal property managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was closed and unoccupied for the holiday weekend.

Indigenous youth in detention nationwide Koori Mail

January 4: About half of all young people in detention are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, according to a report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. The report, ‘Youth detention population in Australia 2015’, shows that fewer than 900 young people were in detention on an average night during the June quarter 2015. But it found that over a four-year period, the level of over-representation of Indigenous young people aged 10-17 in detention increased from 19 to 26 times the rate of other young people.
