This dam conference on hydro-impacted communities starts today! It's actually named "Ki Ta Ski Naw" or 'rise up' in Cree. For those interested in following along, I think hashtags will be #hydroimpacted #hydrojustice & I'll also try to use #SiteC #bcpoli hydroimpacted.ca/conference-age…
Looking forward to the first panel which will be moderated by BC journalist @sarahcox_bc. Opening welcome now. Starting to regain feeling in my face from the walk here, hi Winnipeg!
We're in Treaty 1 territory for the #hydroimpacted conference. Welcome by local elder Dave Scott in Cree language. Speaking now about the treaty relationship, its history, the 'doctine of discovery', Trudeau's White Paper & ongoing devolution process.. cc #SiteC #treaty8

If we would starve Venezuelan children for their oil, covering up the poisoning of #SouthDakota is just child’s play... desmogblog.com/2019/10/01/whi… via @DeSmogBlog
@DeSmogBlog DeSmog received info that indicates the #GardenCreek spill was "officially estimated at 11 million gallons. This puts the release, in terms of gallons spilled, on par with the infamous 1989 #ExxonValdez oil spill in Alaska." desmogblog.com/sites/beta.des…
@DeSmogBlog For more on how oil spills are frequently caused by deliberately muzzled safety equipment read, The Pigs in the Pipeline at: gregpalast.com/keystone-pipel… #NoDAPL #NoKXL #DAPL #KXL #BigOil #Pollution #Environment #OilSpill

Remember when Warren stood up to fossil fuel and government over reach going on record fighting for indigenous rights, clean water and Standing Rock?

Ya. Me either.

What I do remember is when she exploited Standing Rock though. counterpunch.org/2016/12/06/eli…
Warren sure likes to exploit the indigenous when she can use it to get a leg up for her expediency.

Just the facts.
Elizabeth Warren's DEAFENING Silence On #StandingRock.



I still have a soft spot in my heart for @emmavigeland

#DemocraticDebate2020 is upon us and we must discuss how #StealTheBern @ewarren touts "plans" in her platform that have been plagiarized from @BernieSanders' legislative #progressive efforts and policies. #Thread
Warren may have purchased the Google Adwords for #CancelStudentDebt , but the first time legislation was put forth by @BernieSanders was in 2017, the #CollegeForAllAct

#MedicareForAll is now being tossed around like a vial of overpriced insulin, especially by Warren, but Bernie first introduced legislation for this in 2017.

@jennoldham @LeighSPaterson 3/ #NativeAmerican artifacts are everywhere in SE #Utah. After a long drive down a dirt road, @jennoldham & @LeighSPaterson stumbled across these ancient carvings and the remains of a wall.

Here’s a very interesting situation.

Will human rights and the interests of the general public in clean water; or corporate demands win out here?

In the Corporate States of America its usually the big money corporations that get favoured.
Lets hope that won’t be the case here.
If Dakota Access Pipe Line did not legally own the land, then Clean Water protestors were not trespassing on DAPL land.

Protestors were injured in the very aggressive assault on the protestors. Was this on instruction of local or federal police or done by police privately hired
Police used water cannons in below freezing weather on the Clean Water #DAPL protestors; as well as tear gas and rubber bullets that caused serious injury.
Over 300 people were injured.

It was like something you’d expect in a vicious totalitarian police state.

A few scary highlights of the Trump Administration's #CORRUPTION
3/22 The American Petroleum Institute holds its board meeting at Trump’s hotel, where it meets with EPA chief Scott Pruitt. A month later, Pruitt suspends drilling regulations.

7/17 E-cigarette-makers hold their annual conference at the hotel. Ten days later, the FDA announces it will delay federal oversight of e-cigarettes until 2022.

10/4 At its annual board meeting, the National Mining Association is addressed by three Cabinet members: Wilbur Ross,
Alexander Acosta, Rick Perry. “Coal is fighting back,” Perry exults over breakfast with the country’s top mining executives. Five days later, the Trump administration announces the repeal of Obama’s Clean Power Plan

Obama had a scandal-free presidency? Yeah right. Maybe to someone who wasn't paying attention. Here's what #ActualFlatticus #AlanSmithee had to say back when @brianefallon tried to peddle such a lie:
#Obama did not end the sale of military equipment to police departments, by #ActualFlatticus #AlanSmithee.
