Genocide Giving Day, Thanks-Taking, some Holy Day
Legally, the word “peace” is not INsanity… yet the woRd p-e-a-c-e is not used daily by at least 250 millions-Amers! Yet, as some anti-Reason that the useful-most: word to halt the illegal, money and especially: life-Wasting monies-Procurements on munitions, do not have that word pasted on those NSDU-238 bullets, nor those 120 mm “tank” penetrators that are expensive to ship, expensive to use, and devour the mind-Scape of the “military-Hegemonyites” then yes, the word peace-is-not-used because, nothing! The new-Rome, your UN-appointed: empire, is not on firm ground and hardly of sound and viable mind, so maybe you’d better think peace before using that word under your covers…what do you demean by stating ‘nothing’? “R”
“Bush official does not have personal immunity for torture Indict Bush Now reaches international TV audience – share this video with friends…
It is hard to overstate the significance of the ruling by the US Court of Appeals that Donald Rumsfeld will face trial for torture. Every Bush-era official who committed crimes, including authorizing torture, has to be deeply alarmed.
The movement for accountability has entered a new, decisive stage and we are committed to stepping up the momentum.
Two American contractors can go ahead with a civil lawsuit over allegations they were wrongfully held and tortured in Iraq by the U.S. forces. Donald Rumsfeld, the country’s former Secretary of Defence, could be held personally liable. The two men worked for a private security company in Iraq in 2006 when they highlighted concerns their firm was engaged in corruption. They were detained for nine months at a U.S. military facility near Baghdad airport and released without explanation or charge. Brian Becker from the anti-war coalition says this case could open a door to punishment for officials from the Bush administration, accused of torture.

Open-Letter to peace-People & Buffalo Field Campaign
tO the Buffalo field Campaign:
My problem that visits to you have not been my budget capability. The knee-Replacement was a success three-weeks ago and physical therapy will not hinder my giving thanks to your sole capacity of dwelling upon the last remnant herds of “bison”. Thank you for the info on “Barb…” she will be missed by all of us w whom you have been sharing.
I am forwarding this message in a stance for your need to be enabled to continue support; and, that you shall succeed in being able to divulge what buffalo will actually be heading to the “indigenous-Peoples lands” that they may become less ingrown and more renown as an expanding last vestige.
“We give thanks that there are still wild buffalo walking the Earth. Buffalo that still follow their migratory instincts and still carry the integral wisdom of the ancients that does not bend or bow to human fences, boundaries, or prejudice. We give thanks for the wild buffalo’s instincts to simply place one foot in front of the other and walk the land, regardless of government plans; a drive so deeply rooted in their time before time that man’s shallow greed has not yet taken this from them. We give thanks that buffalo still roam, confounding certain humans’ selfishly inflicted consequences. We give thanks for the last remaining buffalo that found shelter in Yellowstone’s remote Pelican Valley barely 150 years ago; the twenty-three that were all that was left of tens of millions, who ensured the survival and wild integrity of their prehistoric kind. We give thanks that buffalo have biologically withstood diseases brought by invasive cattle, their blood building resistance to the dark gifts from these bovine invaders. We give thanks that it is still possible to look into the eyes of a wild buffalo and remember a time we forgot we once knew, and dream of its return. We give thanks that the land cries out for the return of wild buffalo, welcoming their homecoming when the hearts of humans open to the drumming of the buffalos’ foot steps, and the land is again shared, healed and whole with the presence of wild buffalo.
We give thanks for the abundance of snow that has been falling, snow that brings the life giving waters when the sun waxes and the rivers run fast and deep through the veins of the mountains and out to the sea. Bittersweet this gift, as the buffalo will also flow with the deepening snow, and this is as it should be, and though we know harm awaits them, we celebrate their life force and give thanks that they continue in their wild ways despite the obstacles. We give thanks for the persistence, resistance, and endurance of wild buffalo.
We give thanks for those who hear the call of the wild buffalo. We are grateful for the volunteers who come from around the globe to defend the buffalo, joining us for the first time, or coming back again year after year, or returning after an absence. We give thanks for everyone everywhere who cares about wild buffalo and celebrates their wildness and takes action for their right to roam. We give thanks to all of you who make it possible for us to be here standing with the last wild buffalo, bearing witness, sharing their story. We give thanks for the realization that long-term perseverance and passion-turned-action will bring the necessary change we all seek. We give thanks that the status quo that harms the buffalo and the land is an unsustainable and temporary thing in the grand theater of life on earth. We give thanks that there is still time to act, though the time is short, and act we must. We give thanks for the elders who guide us with experience and wisdom and for the flame of passion that burns within the hearts and minds of the youth; for the combined energy and power we hold in our hands to save us from ourselves, and learn to be more like the buffalo. We give thanks for the lessons the buffalo teach us about family, solidarity, fearlessness, abundance, resolve, gentle strength, coexistence, following our instincts without compromise, non-violence and the simplicity of the solutions right before our eyes. We give thanks for the hope and vision of a life for buffalo in which they thrive within their inherent wildness, for a world in which buffalo and all other native wildlife are given precedence on public land, and that buffalo herds will flourish as self-regulating sustainable populations, a rich and viable source for their future evolutionary potential and ambassador for the sovereignty of the land.
We give thanks ~ everyday ~ for the wild buffalo that remain and for each and everyone of you who cares about buffalo and makes the work of Buffalo Field Campaign possible.
Thank you from Buffalo Field Campaign!

Genocide Giving Day is the day to remember, if you want a turkey, shoot youR Wall Street investment banker’s association w pepper-spray, because owning indige-Amer had better be in your prayers, first… no longer do any-peoples stand in the ways of justice w.o. proper cause!
On radio (of course) report i heard today (amongst 4-5-6) was broadcast fRom Alacatraz Island, a place where I joined Russell Means, Dennis Banks on island in 1969 and Bill Means on land. There was a mixture of many-tribes in 1969, a chance for integration and universality was never benign, then nor now, but began w morning prayers as all acknowledged the four directions and spirit of planet-Erathe.

The day after I posted bloG post #36, I was wont to my meditative-State, which directed my thinking to Aljazeera for closer synapsis views on what looks like larger characterizations of “chaos-Theory” on the cIAS’ and black-Ops sides of “imperialist police-State” adjunct of interfering w IMpunity. I found Webster Tarpley on RT news, but came back to Russell Means, and this time my flash did not crash-Out Safari. Now, semi apologetic I am not wont to place Russell where he was to be found on the 24 Nov 2011 post (yet here is 29th! Ooops my brother, you’ll now have a special mention “need”? Russell, is once again, never ‘outspoken’ but now, post cancer, he’s even “better-Spoken”? “R”
“The Stream speaks to actor and activist Russell Means about indigenous land rights and preserving Native American culture…
In the United States, Thanksgiving Day is often portrayed as an event dating from the 1620s when English colonists held a feast to thank their Native American allies for helping them start new lives in America. But, from the perspective of many Native Americans, the holiday symbolises centuries of land seizure and the erosion of tribal cultures. Today about 65 per cent of reservation land in the United States is owned by non-Indians, according to the Indian Land Tenure Foundation. Many Native-owned lands are fragmented into disjointed parcels, further disrupting tribal communities.
According to the organisation, these communities are still losing land to unfair sales by the U.S. government. The practice is permitted via legislation that allows federal authorities to remove land from Native American ownership and transfer it to federal trusts. Authorities can determine how much of the land will remain under tribal control, and then auction off the remaining parcels. Native American activists say reservation land losses make it more difficult for tribes to maintain traditions, many of which are geographically-based and bound in their relationship to the environment. Land loss also results in lost economic and development opportunities.
Could Native Americans have their own country within U.S. borders? In 2007, the Lakotah Freedom Delegation – a group of Native Americans led by activist Russell Means – declared sovereignty from the United States and proposed the founding of a new country known as the Republic of Lakotah. The proposed nation would be based on territory demarcated by an 1851 land agreement made between the U.S. government and Lakotah tribal leaders. The Republic of Lakotah would cover a 200,000-square-kilometre space that is currently claimed by the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Montana and Wyoming.
The U.S. government does not recognise Lakotah or its representatives, stating that its leaders were not democratically-elected and that members are still subject to U.S. law. Lakotah would be a federation of semi-autonomous tribal groups, and governance would be based on an interpretation of a pre-European indigenous political format. In this episode of The Stream, we speak to activist Russell Means, chief facilitator of the Republic of Lakotah, to discuss Native American land rights and the future of tribal cultures in the United States. What do you think about the loss of Native American reservations? Send us your thoughts and comments on Facebook or Twitter using hashtag #AJStream.”
