Shills for "The Future We Choose" - round up #2.

Not a coincidence. The majority of those promoting this book are both white & wealthy. #Ecological crisis will never be resolved by the ruling classes. It cannot be resolved within the same economic system that created it.
The Guardian rolls out the red carpet for "The Future We Choose". Par for the capitalist course.

As the former CEO of #WeMeanBusiness, recently appointed by the UK Govt as the High Level Climate Action Champion for UN climate talks, #COP26, of course Nigel Topping is excited.
"It's about human lives"

This anthropocentric ideology appears to be an infectious disease amongst the "enlightened eco-capitalists". It demonstrates that they are absolutely disconnected from the natural world.

#TheFutureTheyChoose will reboot the system destroying Earth.

From Carol Gammel. . :
According to the #Indigenous, there is much #poverty on the reserves. Take a look at what the Government pays the #Chiefs and #Executives on the #reserves....

Over the last 12 months, @isabellasaund and I have had the privilege of working with @socprogress to develop Australia's first Social Progress Index. amplify.csi.edu.au/social-progres… @CSIsocialimpact
@isabellasaund @socprogress @CSIsocialimpact Why measure #socialprogress? We live in a country that prioritises economic growth and #GDP over pretty much everything else. The logic goes that if economic progress increases, so should social progress.
@isabellasaund @socprogress @CSIsocialimpact But we know that's not the case - we know that the mining boom, while contributing to 28 years of unprecedented economic growth, has also had ongoing impacts on communities and the environment where mining companies have now left.

"The Green New Deal" is going to take movement tactics. Bullshit. It's global - sitting in the wings. Your consent is being engineered. Spending billions to have you demand & "fight" for it. They play with you like a cat plays with a mouse before it decapitates it. For fun.
Who else is tasked with building the social license required to implement the Global Green New Deal?

Let's start with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, & May Boeve, Executive Director of 350-DOT-org.

I am so glad that researchers are interested in helping extend #STEM opportunities to #tribal students!

But please understand that we #Indigenous academics spend considerable time to cultivate relationships of TRUST. No one should expect automatic access our networks. 1/8 #phd
Some well-intentioned researchers have asked to contact my networks bc they 1) have a #diversity goal (Indigenous people as a ✔️), 2) request a letter of support, or 3) have an idea to "help us". If this is our first communication, understand that we have not yet built trust. 2/8
Know that many #Indigenous academics have been burned by ppl who take the letter of support without honoring their commitments to those who helped obtain the grant or tenureship benchmark. That's extractive, and we do not forget. (Also true for #research community engagement) 3/8

At #ClimateJustice panel at #CountdowntoCOP there is recognition that the UK govt has taken on the discourse, but we wait to see the action. Across audience a recognition on the need to centre climate justice in #COP26 & beyond. I am looking forward to hear reflections on #gender
@HarpreetKPaul, an expert on #lossanddamage shares concerns about the lack of movement on the #WIM at a time where #disasters are leaving countries & communities in the global south increasingly & unfairly indebted. We have a moral imperative - #MichaelGove said it himself today
Nick Robins @GRI_LSE & from finance sector explains there is now broad agreement in sector that #ClimateJustice is the right thing to do, AND the necessary thing. #justtransitions must be led by all industries, communities&citizens. Place-based dimension is v.important even in UK

1/Disappointing day on the front lines yesterday. Two sides to every story. This is ours. A Kokum, an #Indigenous Grandmother reached out to me for help. She was asked to sign what she thought was a “support” agreement in regards to her grandchild. #abpoli
2/We met the social worker at Kokum’s place along with friends and family supports. The SW did not have a support agreement but a Custody Agreement, a very important and intrusive document. Kokum wanted to defer signing for a short time and consult a lawyer first. #abpoli
3/The social worker implied that Kokum sign now or an “Apprehension” could take place. Kokum asked if I could at least review the document, the worker refused. #abpoli

However, it shifts the focus back to the old narrative that Kenyans are somehow responsible for the current insecurity, and that if we "got out of Somalia", the "Banditry" would stop. It also very subtly blames the 'Somali Muslim'.

For over 56 years, those in the North Eastern Territories have been held hostage by the same idiotic thinking pushed by KEGovernment & Media (apologies @DennisOkari) that is OWNED by our political leaders..

Voter suppression by the GOP. In 2018, the American Indian was denied the right to Vote because of how & where they live on their reservations. I believe their reservations should unite to be the 51st or 52nd state of the U.S. /1

businessinsider.com/judge-grants-n…
This will give them 2 Senators & Representatives in Congress. There are 573 Federally Recognized Indian Nations in the U.S. And, 326 Indian reservations scattered throughout the U.S. They form a state, petition for admittance into the Union. /2
Even though states would claim "no new state shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other state." Taxes are not collected by those states on these reservations. This is the loophole. They propose statehood, vote on a State Constitution & collect taxes. /3

#SavingCapitalism with
#StakeholderCapitalism
#RedefiningCapitalism
#NewDealForNature

Let's start here, with this misleading article shared by the GT account.
To start. From the article:

"The theme of this year’s gathering in #Davos is “#stakeholders for a cohesive and sustainable world”. According to the forum’s website, leaders will meet to discuss ideas and improve our global progress on climate change."

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
What is not shared is the primary focus:

"Focus of the meeting will be on renewing the concept of stakeholder #capitalism to overcome income inequality, societal division and the #climate crisis."

This #WEF release is new (Jan 14 2020) - but the focus & theme is not.

Today, after @JulianCastro’s news, discussion by mostly non-Indigenous ppl who still support #ElizabethWarren’s DNA political ploy was again met w dissent from Indigenous scholars.

I, an #Indigenous scientist, remind that Warren is NOT Native American: theconversation.com/two-native-ame… 1/
Any estimation of Warren’s supposed “Native American” ancestry is based on statistical INFERENCE reliant on % similarity w short chromosome segment that recently admixed Indigenous individuals from Central & South America happen to also share. And it’s poorly sampled (N=37). 2/
But she’s not claiming to have a Central/South American ancestor, is she? (Let’s also consider WHY people want to claim US Indigenous and not, say, Indigenous heritage with groups south of the border?AeroMexico’s farcical ad may touch on the issue: .) 3/

Let's get 2020 started. I'll be posting Campaign Resolutions like #NewYearsResolution but how I'll Represent #NC13 in D.C.
1 - I am not accepting Corporate PAC donations like my Republican opponent. My vote is not for sale.
secure.actblue.com/donate/scott20…
2 - I will work to engage citizens to hold our Government accountable to the people. I'm not running to be a politician. I am elected to be a Public Servant. I work for the district not for the #donorclass. Our #workingclass families need representation in D.C.
3 - We live in #TwoAmericas. The #ExtremeRich & everybody else. Everybody else is having to work 2 or 3 jobs. We need to focus on improving #workingclass wages. I will support a $15 min raise. My Republican opponent voted NO on HR 582 - Raise the Wage Act

My 43 #goals for the #43rdParliament #canpoli #cdnpoliKeep your promises
1.Work with Opposition not in opposition
2.Change Minister for Women and Gender Equality to Minister of Women and Gender Equity. Equality and equity are not the same thing.
3. Remove the Rural Economic Development component from the Minister for Women and Gender. It should stand alone or be added to Agriculture.
4. 42nd Parliament goal=Women & Gender should stand alone. When considering intersecting identities, the Minister has plenty on her plate
5.Increase the number of Black people in Cabinet.
6.Increase the number of Black people in Governor-in-Council appointments.
7.Name an experienced Black individual to head the new Anti-Racism Secretariat within the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Climate change x health x built environment thread: This is the intersection our lab is working in and are always interested in sharing stories of how damaging this intersection can be if we don't move towards adaptation. For this thread we will also add environmental racism
and inequality. To not understand climate change from the race/inequality perspective is to not understand its impact with the rigour it needs. Jacqueline Keeler has done a great job of bringing forward the plight of the Sioux Reservation @jfkeeler. newsmaven.io/indiancountryt…
1. Reservations have a long history of built environment decay. Many don't have clean water/running water/insulated homes/heating/cooling/or homes that livable. Also many live in overcrowded homes. This has to do w/racists policies stemming back 400 years.

RE Roger Stone, Frank Parlato, Warren Kinsella, Matt Ricchiazzi, Buffalo Chronicle, First Nations

Now most important thing you need to do is make sure you also read the last "ORIGINAL/ARCHIVE" link to Ricchiazzi's piece on his alternate website that I included in my final paragraph

Happy #IndigenousPeoplesDay and a full throated condemnation of #ColumbusDay, the worst holiday in the United States and a celebration of apocalypticism, genocide, slavery, torture, embezzlement, and unremitting brutality, all in the name of Spanish Catholicism and bad math.
On the most basic level, #ChristopherColumbus was a bad person with bad ideas who engaged in bad actions on both a micro and macro scale, and celebrating him as a human being is wrong. Celebrating his achievements? ALSO WRONG.
#ColumbusDay is somehow taught to kids in the US as a celebration of an individual who thought the world was round when everyone else thought it was flat--anyone else remember that crap?--which is complete garbage. No one thought the world was flat. No one.

FYI: So, hearing from Lake Andes, SD (my dad's hometown) on the Yankton Sioux rez that things are really bad with the flooding. E coli infections & the city won't release to the tribe the status on the water and may sue the Yankton Sioux Tribe over digging a ditch. #ClimateStrike
Hearing (but not confirmed) people also are being ordered to evacuate as houses are not safe. Red Cross won't help because they need a directive from FEMA. I'm seeking a press release from the Yankton Sioux Tribe.

#MidwestFlooding #ClimateStrike #ClimateChange #Indigenous
Also, hearing the graves at St. Phillips, the old White Swan Church are threatened. My grandmother and many of my relatives (including Ella Deloria) are buried there.
