It's a good thing there are going to be two events coming up in Portland and Vancouver; the more people who hear (not oppress) indigenous voices, the better.
Our friend had at least one of his social media accounts attacked by "Fragile White Redditors" (AKA Hateful, Angry white guys) trying to oppress his messages.
Let's show him that the #PNW doesn't cater to those fragile colonial fears.
Caption: "Over a dozen messages downvoted on Reddit, such that the communicator has essentially been removed from all discussions."
RE: Coercive sales tactics using "time-sensitive" language being pushed by panicked agents.
If you've done your research and know the general direction something is headed, be especially leery of anyone who tells you that "time is money". It is not.
The interviewee mentioned there's currently a "cheap shortcut" being proposed that tribes in the region are vehemently opposed to, for obvious reasons.
The leaking tanks are contaminating ground water, ecosystems, and the federal government wants to back out of its obligation to PAY FOR AND PROPERLY CLEAN UP its mess. This is its non-retractable legal obligation on the state's land, no matter how long it takes to clean up.
The decommissioned site has toxic chemical and radioactive waste that will literally poison everything downriver, downstream and downwind. Volumetric waste stored on the site (figures mentioned in the interview) equivalent to "an apartment building four stories tall and five blocks wide" ... of poison needing removed. 🤮 Cleanup has been ongoing for 30+ yrs and requires 1000+ year-long horizon planning.
Unfortunately, the economic model they perpetuate has everything in common with concentration camps for migrants, where FRAUD IS RAMPANT and "contractors for hire" foam at the mouth 💥 for multi-million dollar contracts where any kind of negligent or murderous behavior can be rationalized if the price tag is high enough.
The dudes profiting try to hide under shell corps, but they are not invisible. They like real estate deals and big trucks with extended cabs and gun racks, expensive hats and clothes and status symbols, having high follower or "friend" counts on popular social media platforms, and they really hate taxes.
So, to appeal even more to these already corrupt beings, Trump's Toxic Dumpsters are today offering shiny tax breaks to offset the crashing economy. Spoiler alert: it's not going to work.
Melg'puguasit, we stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as a colonized planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life.
We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in an Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as an Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls. The Earth does not sustain white supremacists.
