quamono: Wayúu Encuentro in Colombia-------Encuentro Wayúu en Colombi

Hello,

I'm going to try to make this as brief as possible. Some of you may have recently met Kalaila Barros, a traditional leader of the Wayúu people in Guajira, Colombia who just completed a North American speaking tour. Her group, the Organización Wayuu Munsurat, is organizing the 3rd annual 'Yanama (encuentro) for Women and Territory' in Bahia Portete, Guajira, Colombia. The encuentro will be from about April 14th-21st, 2007 during
the anniversary of the Bahia Portete Massacre.

The encuentro will be accompanying the Wayúu people of Bahia Portete to reoccupy their community that they were displaced from by paramilitaries so that they can pay respects to their dead. This week will also include a fact-finding mission throughout Guajira to document the coal industries effects on local Wayúu & Afro-Colombian communities as well as its effect on the environment.

If people are interested, i have more information about the background of the Wayúu, the region's coal industry, paramilitaries and the encuentro. If you are possibly interested in participating in this event please respond and i will forward you more information. Indigenous folks, people of color, women & youth who are active participants in their home communities are strongly encouraged to participate.

nehikat: First Nations Warriors

okay, i am so proud of my First Nations Sisters & Brothers who are undefeated still and who give their blood, sweat and tears to fight for their rights, their homelands and their Ancestors. they epitomize what the true warrior spirit is because there they stand, outnumbered and outgunned, their ancient homelands occupied by hostiles and still they do not give up and do not give in. they fight not for oil, or land, or empire, or money, or power, or because they are a technologically over-equipped nation that seeks to conquer the rest of the world, but for a simple truth: freedom. freedom from oppression by a colonial government and a racist country. freedom to have power & self-determination over their lives, bodies, lands, stories, languages, futures. their truth still prevails and it is a testament to their strength that after five hundred years of genocide and enforced assimilation that they still know who they are and are still culturally and politically and spiritually and psychologically alive as Indigenous First Nations people who give their bodies, hearts, minds and spirits to the struggle for political, cultural, regional freedom from colonization and to triumph over those who clothe their unjustness in a thin veneer of civility and respectability!!!!

"Our people are responding without weapons, using only their bodies to assert that we are a sovereign people with a long history and that we cannot be intimidated,''

ndnize: OPP INVADES SIX NATIONS

OPP INVADES SIX NATIONS

At 5:55 am this morning, Thursday, April 20th, over 150 heavily armed Ontario Provincial Police with Native mercenaries as body shields, invaded Six Nations land. Some carrying M-16's, in riot gear. 6th line is still open. The Rotinoshon'no are not fighting. Tear gas has been thrownat them. Some were pepper sprayed. The traitors are the same kind of people who stabbed Crazy Horse, Geronimo, and those who fought for our sovereignty and our lives.

One bridge to the property has been vclosed.

Witnesses required. This will not be on the national news. Go there and see what is going on. This is a scary precedent. Take pictures. Make reports. Let the world know. report. REPORT. REPORT. Help the people so no one gets hurt. we never wanted violence. Canada has opened to the door to covert stAte violence on a scale that is unprecedent in Canada. This si the end of any pretense of negotiation with Indigenous people. Canada came in with armaments, guns, paddy wagons (we dont know what's in there).

Don't let Canada become another Chile. Tell the world. The Rotino'shon:we were on our own land.
