Defending the Land Dispatch - 2012-07-13 - pt.2| August 3, 2012
July 13 2012 - We start part 2 of the dispatch in southern ontario the Tekawennake newspaper finally goes online, making it easier to access news from Haudenosaunee (Six Nations) & Mississaugas of the New Credit. This may be bad news for Dufferin Aggregates who have now heard concerns from the public over their proposed mega-pit near Paris ontario, on the Grand River. More concerns to come, im sure :)
In BC, the Save the Fraser declaration has now been signed by the Tsleil-Watuth and Squamish nations, strengthening the wall of opposition to #tarsands pipelines even stronger! This comes after a week of badnews for enbridge, a conspirator in the destruction of the earth through oil extraction and spilling.
We also are saddended by the passing of a "True Warrior" in midland ontario, and enraged at the racists who attacked and killed Andrew Mixemong.
The show then jumps to Paraguay where an "express coup" has ousted land reformist and anti-poverty activist Fernando Lugo Mendez in a style similar to that which ousted Hondouran president Manuel Zelaya in 2009. Once again, the canadian government is quick to open communications with replacement government as canadian mining companies continue their devestating activities.
