Congress Gives Native American Lands to Foreign Mining Company with New NDAA
Congress is poised to give a foreign mining company 2,400 acres of national forest in Arizona that is cherished ancestral homeland to Apache natives. Controversially, the measure is attached to annual legislation that funds the US Defense Department. This week, the House and Senate Armed Services Committees quietly attached a provision to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would mandate the handover of a large tract of Tonto National Forest to Resolution Copper, a subsidiary of the Australian-English mining company Rio Tinto, which co-owns with Iran a uranium mine in Africa and which is 10-percent-owned by China. The “Carl Levin and Howard P. ‘Buck’ McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015” - named after the retiring chairmen of the Senate and House Armed Services panels - includes the giveaway of Apache burial, medicinal, and ceremonial grounds currently within the bounds of Tonto. News of the land provision was kept under wraps until late Tuesday, when the bill was finally posted online. http://rt.com/usa/211531-native-indian-lands-mining/

How Congress Gave Sacred Apache Land to A Foreign Mining Company
The NDAA was used to pass a congressional land grab of public land at Oak Flat, Arizona to Resolution Mining Company, through last minute additions to the bill that were voted into law by Congress. The provision and stealing of sacred land was singled out by Obama as an unfortunate necessity of passing the defense budget, and we learn about the shady and shameful dealing with Kieran Suckling, in this highlight from Antidote hosted by Michael Parker.

Apache Sacred Land to be Given Away to Foreign Mining Co.?
Apache land could be given away to a foreign mining company after the House approved a bill that would allow Resolution Copper to acquire land in the Tonto National Forest in Arizona in exchange for parcels scattered around the state. Resolution Copper plans a massive deep underground copper mine using a technique called block caving and the leader of the San Carlos Apache Tribe is asking the Senate not to vote on the annual National Defense Authorization Act until a provision that would allow the massive copper mining project on sacred land to be removed. We look at the land swap legislation, in this Lip News clip with Mark Sovel and Elliot Hill. www.thelip.tv Newest Lip News playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPf_Lf83rJo&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcjJDo6cQBCQprDMQyUQY3r&index=1 BUZZSAW interview clips - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbnr-7w-rk0&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeWhHPas6M9sKUhThquDNOc CRIME TIME clips playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5kPPEqxsIk&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeC9DbpSnIvd2i9BHh2dBvv&index=1 BYOD (Bring Your Own Doc) Highlight Videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JOg2L9pFFo&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeu2DCf6Ouo7hTsA5QB2MAL MEDIA MAYHEM short videos playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tX2ECgspiLc&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcz4un-zws5sMlCLk3NNjDP&index=1 https://www.facebook.com/thelip.tv http://www.youtube.com/theliptv

Chinese Polic Shot at Least 4 Tibetans in Mining Protest
At least four Tibetans are reported to have been shot dead by Chinese police at a protest in Baiyu County in Sichuan province. Thirty more were injured, with some in critical condition. The shooting happened on August 17th, but reports have only just emerged. According to Radio Free Asia, a group of Tibetans had gone to the Baiyu county headquarters on or around August 13th to express their concerns about increased gold mining damaging the environment. They claimed it was degrading the fertility of their farmland and destroying the local grassland habitat. A source told Radio Free Asia that local officials rejected the Tibetans' claims and detained them. Forty more Tibetans arrived at the Baiyu county offices to protest the detentions. They demonstrated for three days, until security forces opened fire on them. Baiyu (or Palyul in Tibetan) saw some of the worst violence during the Chinese regime's clampdown on Tibetan protests in 2008.

The Omaha Indian Congress
An exhibition of photographs taken at the Omaha Indian Congress in Nebraska in 1898 and part of the collection at the American Museum in Britain. These photographs of Native Americans were taken by Frank Albert Rinehart and his assistant Adolph Mühr. The congress was organised in conjunction with the Trans-Mississippi International Exposition and ran from 4th August until 31st October 1898. This was the largest gathering of Native Americans of its kind, with over 500 members from 35 nations attending – including Geronimo, who was being held as a prisoner of war at Fort Sill. The original intention of organisers of the congress was to illustrate the daily life and activities of the native people. Public demand for spectacle, however, meant that the congress quickly became a series of re-enactments and sham battles.

Peg Millett: Unedited Lecture @ Burning Books (Buffalo, NY) (2014-01-22)
Description taken from the event poster ( https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=720988261253580&set=pcb.720988307920242&type=1&theater ): "Who is Peg Millett? "During the late 1980s, a 'mysterious group' took to sabotaging developments that were threatening grounds held sacred by American Indians of the Grand Canyon region. Peg was profiled and targeted through the FBI's 'THERMCON' program, where agents used romantic coercion and entrapment to build a case against environmentalists. She was sentenced to three years in prison, but not before a ski resort, a nuclear power facility and a uranium mine were sabotaged." Bio from Peg's label, Hidden Waters Music: http://www.dreamfactoryink.com/pegmillett/more.htm/ 1989 Phoenix New Times article on Peg's case: http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/1989-07-12/news/peg-millett-jail-is-temporary-her-cause-isn-t/ "The Evan Mecham Eco Terrorist International Conspiracy," by Leslie James Pickering: http://burningbooksbuffalo.com/product/the-evan-mecham-eco-terrorist-international-conspiracy/ From the description on Juggling.org ( http://www.juggling.org/~conway/millett/ ): "Peg Millett is considered a heroine for her unwavering commitment to act against the destruction of the earth's dwindling diversity of plants and animals. In May 1989, she was arrested by the FBI with Dave Foreman, Mark Davis, Ilse Asplund, and Marc Baker in a widely publicized Earth First! sting operation. The 'Arizona 5' were accused of conspiracy to sabotage nuclear power plans, an allegation that was never substantiated. "In 1991, the well publicized two month trial was interrupted mid-stream with the announcement of a plea bargain. The charge of sabotage was dropped by Federal prosecutors, as well as charges of vandalism against Canyon Uranium Mine, near the Grand Canyon, and the Central Arizona Project. However, Millett was convicted of 'aiding and abetting in the malicious destruction' of ski lift pylons on the San Francisco Peaks, in Northern Arizona, a deed she undertook to protest the desecration of native American sacred lands. She was sentenced to three years in prison. She served without parole and was released in August 1993. "Millett's history of environmental activism, little of it unlawful, began while majoring in natural history and liberal arts at Prescott College in Arizona. Although she did not join any organizations, she became educated about wildlife and forestry issues...."

The Secret World of Gold HD
The Secret World of Gold is a documentary exploring the power and politics of gold, a precious metal with more allure and fascination than any other. Valued for its permanence, beauty and scarcity, people will lie, cheat, steal and kill in the name of gold. *************************************************************** Buy Authentic GOLD with Great Additional Value : 2018 One Troy Ounce (31.1g) American Eagle Gold Coin (US Mint) : http://amzn.to/2F4yNJi 2017 Half Troy Ounce (15.5g) American Eagle Gold Coin (US Mint) : http://amzn.to/2EOQb5j American Gold Eagle (US Mint) : Offered in 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz denominations, these coins are guaranteed by the U.S. government to contain the stated amount of actual gold weight in troy ounces. By law, the gold must come from sources in America, alloyed with silver and copper to produce a more wear-resistant coin. (91.67% Au, 3% Ag, 5.33% Cu) This 22 kt gold alloy is an English standard traditionally referred to as "Crown Gold". *************************************************************** To finance the Third Reich, the Nazis went after the gold of Europe. Allied countries stored their gold offshore to keep it safe. In the first months of the Second World War, the gold of England and France was secretly shipped to vaults in Montreal, Ottawa and New York. Those ships made it safely to port, but throughout history, many were not so lucky. It is estimated that worldwide, 3 million shipwrecks loaded with treasure lie at the bottom of the ocean. Odyssey Marine, an American company listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange, spends huge amounts of money to search for that gold. But there's always the risk they will have to hand it over to countries claiming ownership. France's gold was sent to North America during the war. In recent years, economic uncertainty is giving gold a new lustre in the world of high finance. Whether it's a few gold coins or gold bars stored in one of the many vaults around the world, many investors are taking a shine to gold. But there's not a lot of it. It is said that, even melted down, there would not be enough to fill an Olympic swimming pool (or maybe not - see sidebar). Some claim that much of the gold held by the Bank of Canada, the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve and Fort Knox is gone — that for every 100 ounces of gold traded, there exists only one ounce of real, physical gold. So, where is the gold — and who really owns it? Directed by Brian McKenna for Galafilm with CBC-TV. Best Sound Quality Ever on YouTube.

U.N. Wants U.S. to Hand Over Control of Mt. Rushmore to Native Americans
05/07/2012 The United Nations is claiming that one of America's most iconic monuments, Mount Rushmore, is on sacred ground and should be handed over to Native American control. Trace Gallagher reported that the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner spent 12 days in the U.S. talking to government officials and Native American leaders. The non-binding report won't be out until the end of the year, but he concluded that the U.S. is still oppressing Native Americans. In the Northwest, Native Americans say restrictive laws are limiting their access to hunting and fishing areas, while the Southwest tribes are concerned that mining activities are contaminating drinking water. Tribes in this area also feel that they have no control over their sacred lands including the Black Hills in South Dakota which is where Mount Rushmore is located. Apparently the Sioux Tribe has a territorial claim based on an 1868 treaty. After Congress took over that land, the Supreme Court ruled that the seizure was not legal and the Sioux received compensation. In attempts to get a comment from the government on the issue, Gallagher got in touch with a National Park Service spokesman who said in a statement, "I'm sorry but this is happening so quickly that at this point, we have no comment." http://LeakSource.wordpress.com

The Apache Nation GOP Land Grab
Tara Houska, Tribal Rights Attorney/Not Your Mascots, joins Thom. When back in December President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act - or NDAA - the media here in DC mostly focused on how that act restricted the transfer of Guantanamo detainees and providing funding for Syrian rebels. But out in Arizona - members of the San Carlos Apache Tribe were paying close attention to the NDAA as well. That's because of a small rider attached to it known as the "The Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2013" Also known as Section 3003 - this rider was supported by Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake and gave a foreign company permission to build a copper mine in Oak Flat - a part of Tonto National Forest that the Apache hold sacred. Ever since this deal was signed into law - the San Carlos Apache have fought hard to take back their sacred land. It's been a tough battle - but now they're getting some help from Congress. Last week - Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva introduced a bill that would repeal Section 3003 of the NDAA - and give Oak Flat back to the San Carlos Apache.

For nearly a decade, Resolution Copper Mining, a subsidiary of British-Australian mining conglomerate Rio Tinto, had unsuccessfully sought ownership of Oak Flat Campground. Yet, on December 19, 2014, with the help of Senator John McCain, the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2013 resurfaced within the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and was successfully passed by the Senate and signed off by President Obama . The new legislation will open up Oak Flat for copper mining. As part of the deal, Resolution Copper will swap roughly 7.8 square miles of land scattered across Arizona for roughly 3.8 square miles of Tonto National Forest, which includes Oak Flat. Resolution Copper is required to work with the U.S. Forest Service to do an environmental impact study, however, they are guaranteed to get the land, regardless of what the study shows. Also, the company has chosen a cheaper method of extraction called block cave mining. The aftermath of the mining will result in a crater two miles wide and up to 1,000 feet deep, destroying the surface of the land as well as generate nearly a cubic mile of mine waste Protect Sacred Sites Special Thanks to: Wendsler Nosie Sr. John Mendez Naelyn Pike And all our Apache and Diné Relatives Ahé éhé

ERIC GARNER Rally,, PROTECT OAK FLAT Native American Land in AZ
Support Independent Media! $1 per viewer helps! https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=ZVN55T42MWV42 Occupation began in early February in defense against a large copper mine that threatens to destroy this ecologically-, recreationally-, historically-, and spritually-important place. Eight people have consistently lived here, and many more activists come and go. There’s been a consistent influx of people on the weekends, with upwards of 60 participants at once. The resistance is being led by Apache people, and a diversity of people act as allies. Oak Flat lies between Queen Creek Canyon, Apache Leap, and Ga’an Canyon. It is a sacred place to the Apache people and other Tribes. Prior to 1871, the area was home to Western Apache and other Tribes, before they were removed to reservations. In 1870, 80 Apache warriors jumped from Apache Leap, favoring death over containment or murder by the U.S. Calvary. Oak Flat and Ga’an Canyon are “where the spiritual beings that represent healing live,” says Vernelda grant, tribal historic preservation officer for the San Carlose Apache Tribe (AZ Mining Reform Coalition). Oak Flat was designated as a National Historic Site in 1955. In 2014, Senators McCain and Flake, in conjunction with Representatives Gosar and Kirkpatrick, handed Oak Flat to Rio Tinto Mining Company, hiding the land exchange in the National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed into law by President Obama. Under this legislation, Rio Tinto has no obligations to acquire regular mining permits or follow NEPA regulations. They are free to destruct as they please. http://org.salsalabs.com/o/676/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=9407

McCain & Forced Relocation of Navajo with PL 93-531
Original music by Brent Blount. http://www.angelfire.com/music2/greggwager/landgrab.html The justification for Public Law 93-531 passed by Congress in 1974 was that the Navajo-Hopi land dispute is so serious that 10,000 Navajos near Big Mountain, Arizona, must be relocated, forcibly if necessary. It would be the largest forced relocation of U.S. citizens since the relocation of Japanese-Americans during World War II. But tradition-minded Navajo and Hopi claim there never was a land dispute. They say the dispute was invented to get the Navajos and their livestock off mineral-rich land in the Hopi reservation so it could be developed by mining companies such as Peabody Coal and Kerr-McGee.

Save Oak Flat / Free Leonard Peltier Rally in Santa Fe
***Once Again, The Fight for Religious Freedom in America Begins The Southeast Arizona land exchange was one of the bills that was attached to the National Defense Authorization Act and passed by the U.S. House and the Senate. It is a bill pushed by Arizona Representatives Gosar & Kirkpatrick and Arizona Senators McCain and Flake (and prior to Flake, Kyle) which for over the past 10 years has not been able to get enough votes for passage in either the House or the Senate. The Arizona Congressmen could not get the bill to pass using the normal Congressional procedures. This is because the bill gives land at Apache Leap and Oak flat in southeastern Arizona to a foreign Mining Company, Resolution Copper without any environmental impact studies or without consultation with San Carlos Apache and Tribes that consider the area sacred. The last time the bill came up for vote in the House of Representatives it was shut down by New Mexico Representative Lujan who proposed an amendment to the bill that required that Native American concerns regarding Sacred Sites be addressed. Because Gosar and Kirkpatrick did not want that amendment added to the bill, the vote was delayed and never moved forward . If the Bill was to go to a vote again the the House of Representatives, the Lujan sacred sites amendment could have been added which meant that the sacred site issue would keep the exchange from taking place so it never came up for a vote in the house again. Until it was added to a land package and when introduced on the floor touted the rule that the entire National Defense Authorization Act could not be torn apart and all riders added would go as a package. Now this bill has been snuck in a land package that has been added to the National Defense authorization Act that must be signed by Obama to fund the U.S. Military. The San Carlos Apache tribe has worked tirelessly to avoid this from happening. The discussions of the land package in the House and the Senate did not cover the bills history, all it covered was “jobs”. The scariest part of the presentation in the U. S. Senate of the land package was the discussion regarding all the land in the Western United States. A map showed that the States in the West had enormous pieces of property what is U. S. Trust Property this includes all reservations in the West and all land that is held by the federal government including numerous Sacred Sites, including Oak flat. ******Native American activist Leonard Peltier has spent nearly 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Prosecutors and federal agents manufactured evidence against him (including the so-called “murder weapon”); hid proof of his innocence; presented false testimony obtained through torturous interrogation techniques; ignored court orders; and lied to the jury. People are commonly set free due to a single constitutional violation, but Peltier—innocent and faced with a staggering number of constitutional violations—has yet to receive equal justice.

State Bills Will Ease Native Americans' Access to Birth Certificates
Feb. 20, 2015 - NAZ Today reports on progress of State House and Senate bills that will speed up the process for Native Americans trying to obtain delayed birth certificates. For many Native Americans living on the reservations, the right to be recognized as a US citizen can be a struggle. There are several different federal laws along with outdated record keeping that make obtaining federal documentation a tedious process. Yesterday state legislators passed SB 1393 and HB215, bills in which Native Americans born prior to 1970 are able to submit tribal enrollment records as official documentation which will help speed up the process. The enrollment records must include the person's name, parent's names, the date and location of birth along with medical documentation containing birth records as are apart the the guidelines in the house bill HB2157 and senate bill SB 1393. Lena Fowler the Coconino County District 5 Supervisor says that the new policy was crafted by the 22 Tribes and the Arizona Health Department. Many were spending a lot of time and money driving to Phoenix to provide multiple types documentation for a delayed birth certificate. Fowler is looking forward to Governor Doug Ducey signing the bill into law. Once signed many Native Americans will become eligible to be Arizona citizens and will be able to obtain many service that they currently do not have access to.
