    Peoples’ Social Forum Ottawa August 21-24

    The Peoples’ Social Forum (PSF) is a critical public space aimed at fostering activist involvement of individuals and civil society organizations that want to transform Canada as it exists today. It is intended as a space for social movements to meet and converge, for the free expression of alternative ideas and grassroots exchanges and for artistic manifestations reflecting a diversity of demands and aspirations. It seeks to stimulate practical involvement and the development of networked action strategies aimed at fostering the convergence of struggles and building a broad strategic alliance against neo-liberal and neo-conservative policies in Canada with social justice, Original Peoples rights, sustainable development, international solidarity and participatory democracy at the centre of its concerns. The PSF is an inclusive space that must be occupied by all people and activist organizations convinced that another Canada is not only possible, but above all, necessary.

    Homestake Mine in Lead, SD

    Digital Story Telling on the illegal theft of the Black Hills at the Homestake Gold Mine

    United Native Americans Demand Reparations and Accountability from the Hearst Corporation for CONTINUING VIOLATIONS OF THE FORT LARAMIE TREATIES OF 1851 & 1868 RALLY to DEMAND JUSTICE for the illegal theft of the Black Hills at the Homestake Gold Mine @ Homestake Gold Mine, 160 West Main Street, Lead, S.D. 57754 August 29th 2014 Digital Story Telling — 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. — Press Conference — 9:00 a.m. to 10 a.m. — SPONSORED BY UNITED NATIVE AMERICANS (U.N.A.) United Native Americans invites members of the press and community to join us, to both attend and participate in our upcoming rally to demand Justice for the the Lakota Nation. In the Spirit of Crazy Horse, U.N.A. is demanding the Hearst Corporation contribute to the struggling Lakota Sioux Nation whom they have stolen land and precious Natural resources from. Professor Lehman Brightman states that the Hearst Corporation “has never tried to make amends with the Lakota Sioux Nation.” The heir to the Hearst fortune, William Randoph Hearst III, has “not given one red cent to the Sioux Indians. They could easily afford to set up a scholarship program or improve dilapidated housing on Sioux Territory.” Nearly 97% of the Sioux Nation's population lives below Federal poverty levels. The United States Government and the Hearst Corporation can be prosecuted for violations of International Law. Art. VI of The United States Constitution states, “All treaties made, or which shall be made ... shall be the Supreme Law of the Land." U.N.A. believes it is time that punitive damages be paid to the Lakota Sioux Nation for direct violation of the Fort Laramie Treaties of 1851 & 1868. Reparations need to happen to heal the wounds that capitalism has inflicted upon the people the mainstream media indicates are the least important: indigenous communities, people of color, children, people in poverty, disabled people, elders, and mothers. Daily newspapers are the media through which we consume ideas about what to do and who to be, and tell stories to make us understand where we come from. These newspapers, like the Hearst-owned SF Examiner, tell us stories about what sort of ideal human we should all strive to be. The problem is, most media in wide circulation has been taken over by corporate interests, and ignores atrocities against folks who need their land back, like the Lakota people of the Black Hills, because indigenous people, we are told, are not the ideal humans we all want to be. "Very few people know about these facts," says Quanah Brightman, a Lakota/Sioux leader of the UNA . Manipulation of the media is a strategy that individualizes, like the Hearsts have used throughout history, and now indigenous people are turning the tables with their own people-led media at the Hearst Castle this weekend! Please join U.N.A for our educational and peaceful protest to Demand Justice for the Lakota Sioux Nation at the Homestake Gold Mine , 160 West Main Street, Lead, S.D. 57754 For more information find us on Facebook.com @ United Native Americans,Inc.
