Mohawk Nation News http://www.mohawknationnews.com MNN. Apr 30, 2013 . Federal Court of Canada was asked: Does Canada have a constitution? Are Sections 109 and 132 still part of the British North America Act 1867? If so, our rights to our lands, resources, funds and our sovereignty supersede that of Canada. [Thahoketoteh of Kanekota v. the Queen, T2007-13, Apr. 8, 2013]. Judge Snider refused to answer this simple question, in 4 pages of nonsense. She ordered Thahoketoteh pay $500 for the tele-conference trial, which cost $0. The corporate court system is set up to encircle, subvert and overthrow anyone going against the Corporation of Canada. Kanekota was a direct confrontation in their own arena, by their own rule of law, which they did not follow. They sit in judgment as one of the parties in the dispute, violat es international law against genocide. Canada could only deny us our basic human rights. Canada has a constitution which the courts do not have to follow because it was not ratified by the people. At the signing of the 1948 UN Declaration on Human Rights, Canada and US signed. A clause was added exempting US and Canada from the International Criminal Court. They could never be tried for any human rights violations. They can only be tried domestically. Accordingly, they are waging war everywhere in the world.
Their blatant disregard for the questions indicates their uncertain future. With their accomplices, the UN, IMF, World Bank, BIS and other Rothschild owned banks, they are fighting the advancing consciousness of the people who live with the land. We are a free people with free minds. Their fake system needs our resources and our labor. They are trying to break us up into moderate and militant blocks to fight or negotiate with one side or the other. The world balance is shifting. Rather than encircling us, they are being encircled. To start WWIII they need to steal our resources, funds and labor. Many supported our case to help promote our constitution of peace. Judge Snider s fatally flawed decision opened the eyes of all, that going into their theater of the absurd is a waste of time. Thahoketoteh felt that the energy of putting his mind into the case was anti-spiritual. They will never rule against the corporation. Nor allow a third party adjudicator to make it a fair hearing. We are living in a military dictatorship with no rule of law. Our true constitution for thousands of year is the law of this land. We will not appeal this case. The white roots of peace have been exposed for all on Great Turtle Island to follow to its roots. As Jimi points out in his classic If 6 was 9 , I don t mind. If all the hippies cut off their hair, I don t care. Cause i got my own world to live through, and I ain t gonna copy you.

MNN. Apr. 29, 2013 . The conquest of our resources by a few who impose misery, oppression and indignity is ending. The Council of Chief Executives CCCE describes itself as a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization of CEOs of Canada s largest corporations. They are the shadow government devoted to theft and genocide! It controls many trillions in stolen Indigenous assets. Formerly called the Business Council on National Issues BCNI, its membership is a Who s Who of Canadian business and politics. Have a look. They are accountable only to the shareholders that own the Corporation of Canada. Current CCCE President John Manley was named Time Canada s Newsmaker of the Year in 2001 for crafting cross-border anti-terrorism strategies with the first U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge. Other members are part of the war machine: Air Canada, Bombardier, CN, Deloitte, Encana, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, KPMG, Royal Bank of Canada, and many other firms at the heart of the Canadian economy on stolen Indigenous land. Canada is a plutocracy run on bribes and corruption. Paul and Andre Desmarais, co-CEOs of Power Corporation , are called Canada s Rockefellers for their enormous wealth, influence, and political power. They shape, influence and dictate Canadian foreign and domestic policy.
BCNI drafted the 1986 Competition Act : BCNI approached Andre Ouellette, Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, with an offer he didn t refuse. BCNI CEO Thomas D Aquino had, previously decided that Canada needed a new competition act. D Aquino spent $1 million to hire a team of 25 lawyers who by 1985, had produced a 236-page master plan. Incredibly, it became Canada s new Competition Act, virtually word for word. There were no provisions for class-action lawsuits. Criminal conspiracy was unprosecutable. Criminals were sent to civil courts to be processed. From 2003 to 2006 the Council launched the secret Security and Prosperity Partnership, [North American Union NAU] between US, Canada and Mexico. The North American Competitiveness Council , representing the 50 largest North American corporations and including many of the Canadian Council s members, shaped SPP talks.
The SPP eventually folded. The Council still wants to create a continental security perimeter and free trade zone to enhance their banking and business interests. The Canadian Council of Chief Executives controls national policy in the interest of the few, and drafts legislation favorable to them. These secret provisional corporate governments are being revealed for being the shadow government. As we read this now, the shackles are starting to fall. The corporations are going down, as Leonard Cohen sang: They sentenced me to 20 years of boredom, for trying to change the system from within. I m coming now, I m coming to reward them. First we take Manhattan , then we take Berlin. http://www.corbettreport.com/power-behind-the-throne-the-canadian-council-of-chief-executives/ MNN Mohawk Nation News firstname.lastname@example.org Thahoketoteh@hotmail.com For more news, books, workshops, to donate and sign up for MNN newsletters, go to www.mohawknationnews.com More stories at MNN Archives.

NAVAJO AND APPALACHIANS JOIN ST. LOUIS RESIDENTS IN CONFRONTING PEABODY COAL CORPORATE EXECUTIVES
Coalition Indicts Peabody with Habitual Exploitation at Annual Shareholders\’ Meeting Groups from Wyoming, Black Mesa, St. Louis and Colorado Join Together to Confront World\’s Largest Coal Company
Posted at Censored News GILLETTE, WY– Peabody Energy shareholders affiliated with Powder River Basin Resource Council, Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE), CO-FORCE (Coloradans for Fair Rates and Clean Energy), and Forgotten People from Black Mesa/Big Mountain in Arizona converged in Gillette, Wyoming, on Monday, April 29, 2013, at Peabody\’s Annual General Meeting. Peabody has always held its meeting near its headquarters in St. Louis, but moved it this year to avoid public scrutiny. After the meeting, an activist affiliated with MORE [was arrested] dropping a banner saying, “Peabody Attacks: Pensions, Din Lands, Climate.” Shareholders asked targeted questions to CEO Greg Boyce and the Peabody Board of Directors regarding its current business model which consistently externalizes its costs to coal mine neighbors, workers, and the environment. Peabody\’s creation of now-bankrupt Patriot Coal to unload its pension and healthcare obligations to retired miners is a recent example of how Peabody disregards its own workers. Shareholders stood with the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) in Gillette in demanding that Peabody pay its retired miners what they were promised, while thousands more rallied in St. Louis. Just as Peabody is threatening the livelihoods of UMWA retirees, Peabody was also confronted today by two residents of the Black Mesa/Big Mountain area in Arizona. For decades, Peabody has been involved in the forced relocation of tens of thousands of Din and Hopi on Black Mesa. In January, residents of Black Mesa attempted to meet with CEO Greg Boyce in St. Louis. He refused, and twelve people were arrested attempting to deliver a letter from Black Mesa residents to Peabody.
|Climate activists being arrested at shareholders meeting|
“This winter, we travelled to Peabody\’s headquarters in St. Louis to bring them a message from the people of Black Mesa, whom Peabody is displacing from their ancestral lands to expand their strip mines. Instead of holding a dialogue, Boyce hid behind security and hired police; now we have come to Gillette so that we can express our concerns face-to-face,” said Don Yellowman, of Forgotten People on Black Mesa/Big Mountain in Arizona. Shareholders also drew attention to Peabody\’s attempts to cheat American taxpayers by leasing artificially cheap coal from the Bureau of Land Management. This practice is now under unprecedented investigation by the Government Accountability Office, the Department of the Interior, and Congress, and it could pose a large risk to the financial viability of Peabody\’s mining efforts in the Powder River Basin. Today, over 135,000 petitions were delivered to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell calling for a moratorium on new coal leasing in the Powder River Basin. The petitions follow an April 15 letter to Secretary Jewell signed by the leaders of 21 environmental, public health, consumer rights and community organizations calling for a moratorium and comprehensive review of the federal coal leasing program. “Peabody\’s chickens have come home to roost,” stated LJ Turner, a Wyoming rancher who lives near Peabody\’s North Antelope Rochelle Mine. “For too long, Peabody has ignored the true cost of its coal mines in the Powder River Basin, but now Congress and others are starting to pay attention to the impacts of mining on people, our air and land, and the climate.” Shareholders\’ concerns are underlined by a recent subpoena of Peabody by the Securities and Exchange Commission, related to the building and development of the Prairie State Energy Campus in Marissa, IL. Peabody, once the full developer of the project, sold of 95% of the plant to hundreds of towns and cities across the Midwest who are now paying for the plant\’s extreme cost overruns in their monthly bills. —
Censored News Breaking News Exclusive www.bsnorrell.blogspot.com POTAM PUEBLO, Sonora, Mexico — Yaqui in Sonora, Mexico, have invited President Obama to meet with Yaquis in a government to government meeting in the Yaqui village of Potam, during Obama s visit to Mexico on May 2 — 3. Urging Obama not to fail in his promises to the people, Yaqui said the meeting will focus on the Yaqui struggle to maintain their water and land rights, identity and sovereignty. You have stated that you respect every nation, tribe and village that seeks peace and happiness, Yaqui said in the official invitation from the eight Yaqui communities. We dare to believe that your administration will not protect white collar criminals who endanger the American family and the national security of the United States, said the formal invitation to meet with Yaqui communities in their traditional homeland in southern Sonora, south of the Arizona border. While pointing to the corruption in Mexico, Yaqui said they are seeking support to maintain their way of life, which includes traditional farming, ranching and fishing. Yaqui said vital topics for the meeting are the breach of the Peace Treaty of 1940, corruption in the Arizona/Sonora Commission and the government of Mexico s attempts to carry out a coup d etat against our indigenous sovereignty. The official invitation to meet with Yaquis is signed by Mario Leyva Kajeeme and dated April 26, 2013. A copy was sent to Censored News. On November 20 — 21, Yaquis in Vicam hosted the International Forum for the Defense of Water, following Mexico s plans to seize water from Rio Yaqui for the city of Hermosillo. The official invitation to Obama for the May meeting said, “We hope you will not ignore our invitation. We wish that the hope and change that you have promised will someday directly benefit our true Yaqui families in Sonora and Arizona.”
MNN. Apr. 27, 2013. James Anaya, the special UN rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous peoples, says the Harper government until recently refused his request to investigate the human rights situation of Indigenous peoples . He was refused official entry into Canada. The violations were so serious that he was ready to meet through unofficial channels. He was finally given a permit, with conditions? Canada s national human rights commission is getting flooded with complaints from Indigenous about the discrimination and misconduct of their corporate Indian band councils for selling out our resources to Harper s multinational banking buddies. Harper is telling us to go to the very agents we are complaining about. Harper s job is to shut us up and speed up the rape of our resources.
Recently found in secret graves were bones, bits of school uniforms, arms, skeletons of children as young as 3 years of age and other material. They were covered with several feet of dirt, plants and trees.
Which criminal acts is Canada guilty of in relation to the murder of Indigenous children at government residential school death camps? A serial killer kills 3 or more persons over a period of time for psychological gratification. Often a sexual element is involved. Other motives include anger, thrill, financial gain and attention getting. Victims may have something in common, occupation, race, appearance, sex or age. Killings could go on over a long period of time. Mass murder is killing a large number of people at the same time over a short period of time, in a single location. A number of victims are killed by an individual or an organization. Some of the perpetrators die by suicide or are killed in shoot outs or go unfounded.
In genocide mass murder is the intention of government agents to exterminate a large number of people, such as unarmed protesters, innocent people in cities, random or planned executions of civilians or children. Governments annihilating entire groups of people can be both genocide or crimes against humanity. Such crimes have no charges nor convictions. In 1948 the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide Article 2 provides that genocide is deliberate and systematic murder in whole or in part of an ethnic, racial or national group; killing members of a group; causing serious bodily harm; deliberately inflicting death; preventing births; transferring children to another group; destroying political and social institutions, culture, language, national feelings, religion and economy; or destroying their personal security, health, dignity and lives. Canada signed this convention and is guilty of most of these crimes. The National Criminal Court was established in 2002 to try states that signed the treaty such as Canada. The UN determined it cannot interfere in the internal affairs of sovereign nations. Genocide can only end when these powers no longer have a stake in the region where genocide is being carried out. Canada is not sovereign. It is a corporation without land.
The surviving students are now telling us what they know. Attached is the report of the International Tribunal of Crimes of Church and State ITCCS of the crimes carried out at the Mush Hole death camp at Six Nations. The genocide program in Canada is firmly in place and still on track. Duncan Campbell Scott, the colonial superintendent of Indian Affairs, plotted the final solution of the Indian problem in the Indian Advancement Act of 1924. The international community has no choice but to follow international law and charge Canada with the crime of genocide, and put a stop worldwide. Canada s existence is built upon lies and will fail a s Jimi sang: Just like castle s made of sand fall into the sea, eventually. Castles made of sand ITCCS website
