Indigenous Elders: No time left to defend the Earth

 

Indigenous Elders 'Mankind has gone too far'

By Brenda Norrell

Indigenous Elders and Medicine People said there is no time left to defend the Earth, while Amnesty International said Canada is to blame for a police attack on Mi'kmaq defending their land from from fracking.

Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Lakota, with a Council of Indigenous Elders and Medicine Peoples, issued a statement saying mankind can no longer ignore the teachings to protect the Earth. The Indigenous Council described the destruction that has been created by man and is now out of control, including Fukushima and fracking in North America.

In a second statement, Amnesty International said Canada is to blame for the violations of international laws and human rights which resulted in a police attack on Mi’kmaq in a peaceful anti-fracking camp where Mi'kmaqs were defending their land.

Mi'kmaq in Elsipogtog, New Brunswick, announced a Sacred Fire blockade would begin at noon on Monday, Nov. 4, 2013 to blockade fracking exploration by Southwestern Energy, SWN, of Houston.
