UPDATE! Standing Rock Is Not Over

Complete Update as of Dec. 8, 2016 • , CA
Standing Rock Update at of Dec. 8, 2016: Although the Army Corps of Engineers denied the easement to permit the Dakota Access Pipeline to be drilled under the Missouri River (putting the water supply of 120 million people at severe risk), the Energy Transfer Partners (Sunoco) intends to drill anyway and despite Chairman Dave Archambault's official statement of victory, Water Protectors and ... Full Listing. Veterans remain vigilant. Recent Developments: 1. At least 2,000 veterans showed up to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." The veterans themselves estimate their numbers onsite to be around 4,000. 2. The Army Corps of Engineers denied Energy Transfer Partners the easement needed to continue the project. 3. Robert Kennedy Junior explained that the pipeline is actually illegal and was being ramrodded through without a full Environmental Impact Statement as required by law. (Energy Transfer Partners attempted to bypass the process by segmenting the project and filing many short forms). 4. Standing Rock Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault made a formal statement to Water Protectors theat their "purpose has been served and it’s time to go home." Although he thanked the Obama administration, it is unclear whether the president had a hand in the decision. Unlike Western politics, the Chairman's statement is not "top down" authority and many Water Protectors and Veterans will remain throughour the winter. Unprepared visitors are requested to leave, however. 5. A moving ceremony was held where the veterans and natives reconciled their differences and asked forgiveness for past wrongs. This had profound effects on all participants including helping to heal veteran PTSD. 6. Energy Transfer Partners stated they "fully committed to ensuring that this vital project is brought to completion" and that it expects to complete construction of the pipeline "without any additional rerouting in and around Lake Oahe." There is some debate about whether they will continue construction. 7. The hired security personnel backed off from their position at the bridge and re-deployed their encampment about a mile away. 8. Veterans are discussing taking their support to Flynt, Michigan next although organizer Wes Clark Junior was unavailable for comment. 9. Current weather conditions at Standing Rock: Blizzard. No one is going in or out of the encampment at the moment. 10. *** SEVERE WEATHER PREDICTED FOR NEXT WEEK! (Cut and paste this link for details): http://www.nbcnews.com/news/weather/season-s-first-arctic-blast-brings-subzero-temperatures-plains-n693476 DONATIONS ARE STILL NEEDED: Although the encampment is currently well-supplied, they will be in need of additional supplies in months to come. Please donate to Red Lightning to support this effort by clicking the Fundraiser Link on this webpage. THANK YOU!! "As the camps at Standing Rock have processed Archambault's statements LeDonna Brave Bull who owns the land Sacred Stone Camp is on officially asked everyone to stay until the black snake is dead. Oceti Sakowin Camp released the following statement: "Thank You Protectors Press Release: December 7, 2016 � FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Standing Rock Reservation, Oceti Sakowin Camp. North Dakota— Our first concern is safety. We ask all who can and want to leave, to return home. We are especially concerned for elders, families with children, those with health concerns, and/or pets that aren't acclimated. For those who can stay—and are prepared for arctic conditions—please do, we need people here. The Lakota/Nakota/Dakota people of The Great Sioux Nation have survived in these conditions for thousands of years. If Ally Protectors cooperate with the ancient wisdom and ways of these lands, we will fare well. This movement is unlike any other—it is prayerful as well as peaceful—the consciousness we have raised here continues to resonate across the world. Secondly we ask this of you in order to conserve resources. Bringing in wood, and other essential life supporting goods, is now much more complicated. For those who want to come, be prepared for arctic conditions, we can't stress this enough. Be ready to contribute to the survival and safety of the camp in a significant way daily, be abundant in spirit and ready to share. Bring wood, plan to work. We need cooks, medics, builders/repair-persons, people dedicated to the survival of the community, for the coming storms. Bring weather-ready vehicles, 4x4 trucks and trailers, snow-ready vehicles. Oceti Sakowin Camp remains determined—to protect our land. We have been given the obligation to do so in the treaty of 1851—we were specifically asked to protect this river. This is the way of the Standing Rock people, the Lakota people, the Hunkpapa people. All of the seven tribes of The Great Sioux Nation have gathered here again in an historic way—once as former enemies, we now stand together as brothers and sisters. We are not protesters. We are not terrorists. We are not rioters. We are in fact, Protectors." Many speculate that Archaumbault's statements were made both to release the Tribal Council of legal liability and to weed out those who are not prepared for survival in these brutal winter conditions. For those wondering if you should still come at this point...if you are truly prepared and feel confident you can contribute more than you will take you are needed. <3 "
Oakland Fire Relief Fund

Oakland, CA
Friday, December 2nd, at approximately 11:30 PM, a tragic fire erupted in an artist collective work space in the Fruitvale district of Oakland. Within the space many artists and attendees of our community were present. To date, the exact number of injuries and fatalities are unconfirmed but have risen to 36 and may take weeks to resolve. Sadly, what is known is that this is a massive tragedy for ... Full Listing. the Bay Area Arts community. Gray Area Foundation for the Arts is working with the Oakland Mayor's Office, The Red Cross and other fundraisers to be the main fund for this effort. They will work to use the Red Cross' knowledge of the appropriate format for distribution of these funds. They are working every minute to figure this out. Please keep sharing and donating. Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, a non-profit that has been involved in the greater Bay Area artist community for the last 10 years, has deep and personal connections with many of the presumed victims of the tragedy. We at Gray Area feel that a relief fund is critical to the surviving victims as well as the families of those that passed. Immediately upon learning of the incident, we established this donation page under the tax deductible shelter of our 501c3 in order to collect funds to help the victims and the families of the victims. We are forming an oversight committee, talking with Oakland authorities, and will be sure the funds are allocated appropriately to fire victims and with due diligence. There will be public disclosure through the fund page and via Gray Area disclosing how these funds are spent, while also maintaining anonymity for the grieving friends and family members affected by this event. We are waiting on official word from authorities prior to making further decisions but our hope is to provide relief for Funeral, Medical and Health related expenses first and foremost. We as collective community are in mourning, many people are immediately impacted by this horrific event, not only in the region, but internationally. In these times of divide, it is critical that we band together. Gray Area is setting up this fund to support the fire victims to do what we can to support the Bay Area arts community as we go through this together. The fund will be held and administered by Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, as a 501c3 we can accept tax-deductible contributions for causes that support our community mission. We are friends, employers, supporters of many who have been affected by this tragedy– we are holding safe space for all. We hope this fundraiser can provide relief for some of the victims, We will distribute the funds to all affected as soon as the full picture is released of the tragedy.

Say No To Dakota Access Pipeline

Petition Obama & Donate Supplies to Native Protectors • , CA
For months, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and thousands of allies have been gathering in peaceful resistance to stop the construction of the fracked oil pipeline on their ancestral lands and protect the tribe's water supply. After a federal court declared that construction should go on, the Obama administration stepped in and called for a pause. Now the water protectors at Standing Rock need YOU ... Full Listing. to speak up and tell President Obama to stop construction PERMANENTLY. Stand with the water protectors at Standing Rock and ask President Obama to stop construction for good by revoking the pipeline permits. (The Website link goes to the petition). Please send supplies in support. (The Fundraiser link goes to the donation form). The Dakota Access pipeline — projected to carry 500,000 gallons of crude oil a day — would cross under the Missouri River just half a mile upstream from where the Standing Rock tribe gets its drinking water. One spill would mean disaster for everyone downstream. The resistance at Standing Rock is growing every day — will you add your voice to theirs? Ask President Obama to STOP the pipeline construction at Standing Rock and protect the Standing Rock Sioux's water and ancestral lands. In the short term, this pipeline threatens drinking water and Indigenous sacred sites. In the long-term, the fossil fuels it transports will add to the climate-changing carbon in our atmosphere, threatening life everywhere. Tell President Obama YOU stand with Standing Rock and want the pipeline permits revoked. In solidarity, Peter Dakota Molof Grassroots Organizing, Greenpeace USA P.S. Organizers I spoke with on the ground made it clear that they are in this for the long haul and will not stop until the pipeline is cancelled permanently. I know you'll also be with them in this fight. Tell the President to revoke the pipeline permits today! As each day passes, I am more and more moved by the courageous actions of Indigenous leaders resisting the Dakota Access Pipeline. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, along with thousands of their allies, have created a movement to fight the pipeline that would put their water, land, and air at risk. It’s critical that the water protectors at the Sacred Stone and Red Warrior camps have the support they need to stay for as long as it takes. That’s why when organizers at the camps reached out for help collecting vital supplies, I knew we could count on activists like you, Debra, to be there. Sign up to send a supplies donation to the water protectors resisting the Dakota Access Pipeline. After you sign up, I’ll send you the list of requested donations, and all the information you need to ship them. Organizers on the ground at the Red Warrior and Sacred Stone camps have said that they are in this fight for the long haul — and will stay throughout the winter. That’s why it’s so critical they receive urgent donations like tents, sleeping bags, and winter gear — as well as other camping, art, and medical supplies. Will you sign up today to gather and ship supplies for the Red Warrior and Sacred Stone camps fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline? These items will not only help maintain quality of life at the camps, but also be a welcome contribution to the fight for survival in the face of extreme energy infrastructure. The Dakota Access pipeline is estimated carry 500,000 gallons of crude oil a day across sacred sites and under the Missouri River; which would be disastrous for the Stand Rock Sioux Tribe and ultimately the planet. Donate supplies today and help the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and allies protect what’s sacred.

No New Offshore Drilling!

, CA
Two days ago, President Obama released a proposed plan for where oil and gas companies could drill off our coasts in the next five years. This news was a stunning blow to the people of Alaska, because just last week, President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stood together and pledged climate action to protect the Arctic. As an Alaskan resident and someone who has been fighting ... Full Listing. for climate justice for years, I thought: finally, the President is doing the right thing. But just days after that pledge to protect the Arctic, President Obama released a plan that opened up parts of it to oil companies. This is not the climate action he promised and we need YOU to help point out this contradiction. Send a message today! The offshore oil and gas program Obama presented allows new drilling in parts of Alaska and Gulf of Mexico — despite the clear risks of oil spills, threats to coastal communities and their way of life, and the ongoing threat of catastrophic climate change. Thousands of people — people like you — stood up and demanded that the government keep drills out of the Atlantic, and President Obama listened, removing the Atlantic from this plan. Now it’s time for us to ride this momentum to keep oil drills out of the Arctic and Gulf — and keep fossil fuels in the ground. YOU got Shell to leave the Arctic. YOU protected the Atlantic from oil drills. Now YOU can convince the President to protect the Arctic and the Gulf once and for all. Send President Obama a message today. Thank you, Christina-Alexa Liakos Alaskan Organizer, Greenpeace P.S. Every day in Alaska, I witness the impacts of climate change on our communities and way of life. More drilling will only make it worse. Tell President Obama to stick to his words and protect the Arctic by keeping fossil fuels in the ground here and in the Gulf.
Pretzel Politics

, CA
Please call your Senators @ 202-224-3121 This is one of those times when you can make a difference in the lives of so many…including your own off spring and take a master step in helping to get GMOs labeled. The latest Washington tactics are remarkably frustrating and, yet, so understandable when big money and Monsanto influence come into play over the desires and health of our families and ... Full Listing. children. I have no more tolerance for the lack of sensitivity and destruction…hoping that our generation might leave a footprint that truly makes a difference. American consumers have overwhelmingly sought to have genetically modified foods labeled for two decades. Vermont is the first state to pass legislation that will be enacted in 2016. While Republicans typically defend the rights of States, and push to leave authorities with the States, they have complied with industry request to establish a national labeling standard. The catch, is they are not meeting or exceeding the state mandatory labeling provision, but lowering the standard to voluntary, in essence the standard that already exists because the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) got it wrong from day one of regulating GMOs. A House bill, H.R.1599 – Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015 originally drafted by the Grocery Manufacturers Association, passed in July 2015. The Senate Agriculture Committee took up the issue, with Chairman Roberts posting a draft bill, which was voted out of Committee on March 1, 2016. He then introduced that bill as S. 2609. The two bills do not match. Tonight, Senator McConnell on behalf of Senator Roberts last night posted Amendment No. 3450 as a Substitute Amendment to replace S. 764 as a mechanism to pass a new version of his voluntary biotech food labeling bill (different than what came out of Committee. The original S. 764 introduced by Mr. Wicker (for himself, Mr. Schatz, Mr. Sullivan, and Ms. Cantwell) was about to “reauthorize and amend the National Sea Grant College Program Act” and passed the Senate in July 2015 under Unanimous Consent. In Mid-September the House, using the nature of a full substitute mechanism, struck all of the language after the enacting clause and insert a defunding planned parenthood bill in its place. The bill that was engrossed and sent back to the Senate as S. 764 “Resolved, That the bill from the Senate (S. 764) entitled “An Act to reauthorize and amend the National Sea Grant College Program Act, and for other purposes.”, do pass with the following AMENDMENT: Strike out all after the enacting clause and insert: SECTION 1. Short title. This Act may be cited as the “Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015”.” Not a single word regarding National Sea Grant College Program remained. Now, S. 764 is to have come up for cloture vote maybe as soon as Wednesday, shorting cutting all of the standard legislative procedures and open discussion with a new version of Sen Robert’s S. 2609 voluntary labeling of biotech (GMO) foods bill which seeks to permanently preserve biotech food labeling as voluntary. Setting aside the issue of GMO labeling, how is no Senator objecting to this sleight of hand on bills? How does a bill regarding the National Sea Grant College Program leave the Senate and come back a bill on Defunding Planned Parenthood and then get switched a second time to a Biotech (GMO) food labeling bill? Why is no Senator opposing this manipulation of the process? What is in the new bill? In comparing the Amendment to the text of S. 2609 (which was voted out of the Agriculture Committee), there are several pages inserted into the middle of the Bill. A section references bar code voluntary labeling was inserted; the language on State Food Labeling Standard is different and includes an additional provision on instructing the Secretary of Agriculture to establish consistency between this provision and Organic food provisions. An apparently new provision was introduced as well – Section 294 which provides instruction on rulemaking regarding food labeling related to bioengineered foods and define the term ‘most frequently consumed labeled foods’. Also new is Section 294a which calls for the Secretary to establish a mandatory labeling standard if certain very complex (and potentially impossible to meet) provisions are met during rulemaking. It also includes language similar to the House version related to not implying risk of harm from bioengineered foods. At the end of the day, the new S. 764 seeks to placate the very generous political donors such as Monsanto, GMA (who were just found guilty of skirting disclosure laws in the Washington State battle two years ago) and all of their member companies and ignores the wishes of the American people. Can this bill be stopped? Yes, if the Senators do not get 60 colleagues to vote for Cloture. The cloture process, suspends the debate (which is not even taking place apparently); and Senator McConnell and Senator Roberts can move to vote on passage. It can also be stopped is even one Senator objects and puts a hold on the Bill. There are PLENTY Of reasons to put a hold on this bill. Senator Wicker, Schatz, Sullivan, and Cantwell could object to the hijacking of their original bill. What Can I Do? Time is Short for Action but We Can and Should Act. 1. We all need to get involved immediately and call our own Senators and ask to vote no on Cloture on S. 764; vote not on passage of S. 764. The Senate Switchboard is 202-224-3121 2. Consider going on the internet to http://www.senate.gov and go to the page for your two Senators – they will each have an online email – send a short message identifying yourself as a Constituent, and asking the Senator to vote no on S. 764 the Biotech (GMO) voluntary labeling bill. Ask for a follow up contact from the Senate office in the email. 3. If you use Facebook and Twitter and send messages to your Senators opposing passage of S. 764. The POP Campaign agrees with American consumers – we do not want to be kept in the DARK, we want mandatory labeling of GMO foods. (http://popcampaign.org) See the article post below. Check out FB and www.popcampaign.org to get the updates. Please make a donation to assist us in off setting our extra expenses on this journey…..and get the word out to friends and family around the country. Call your Senators @ 202-224-3121. The message is simple: Ask your Senators to vote against any legislation that does not label GMOs. NO on the sneaky S 764 submitted on Monday evening before a Monsanto backed Senate dinner and fundraising opportunity (they did not even bring this before the committee) . Yes to label GMOs…it is the right thing to do to Save Our Children. Here is the recent post for this week - let’s make a difference together NOW!
