The freelance reporter has been released from detainment without arrest or charge. A statement from Dr. Jill Stein: I m here to connect the dots between super storm Sandy and the record heat, drought, and fire we ve seen this year and this Tar Sands pipeline, which will make all of these problems much worse. And I m here to connect the dots between climate devastation and pipeline politicians both Obama and Romney who are competing, as we saw in the debates, for the role of Puppet In Chief for the fossil fuel industry. Both deserve that title. Obama s record of drill baby drill has gone beyond the harm done by George Bush. Mitt Romney promises more of the same.

Climate Change Feeds Superstorm Triple Whammy Global Warming Raises Sea Levels, Alters Jet Stream, Makes Storms Stronger By Center for Biological Diversity Censored News SAN FRANCISCO As America copes with the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy, scientists with the Center for Biological Diversity are urging the Environmental Protection Agency to use the Clean Air Act to take emergency action against climate change. Global warming creates a “superstorm triple whammy” that helps turn nasty weather into a nightmare of killer winds and devastating storm surges. “The terrifying truth is that America faces a future full of Frankenstorms,” said Shaye Wolf, Ph.D., the Center\’s climate science director. “Climate change raises sea levels and supersizes storms. The threat of killer winds and crushing storm surges will grow by the year unless we get serious about tackling greenhouse gas pollution.” Here s how scientists say climate change feeds the

Mexico and corporations are targeting the Rio Yaqui as a water source, after wasting and depleting other water sources in Sonora By Brenda Norrell Censored News http://www.bsnorrell.blogspot.com Live coverage Saturday Oct. 27, 2012 French translation by Christine Prat http://www.chrisp.lautre.net/wpblog/?p=1102 Indigenous Peoples of Sonora are now gathered at the Second Reunion of Spiritual Guides to discuss the protection of the earth, wind, water and other natural resources, from mining, dams, drug trafficking, theft and development. Non-Indigenous who have wasted and depleted their water sources in Sonora, are now targeting the Rio Yaqui. The water diversion of the Aquaduct Independence would deplete water from the Yaqui villages in Sonora.

MNN: REVOLUTION BACK TO RULE OF LAW REVOLUTION BACK TO RULE OF LAW KANEKOTA UPDATE. Mohawk Nation News http://www.mohawknationnews.com MNN. Oct. 25, 2012. Canada has a duty to abide by the rule of law, that is, to follow their own laws. Above all, their constitution. Their following their constitution and agreements with Indigenous peoples is their visa to live here. Ordinary statutes like the Indian Act that breach the constitutional guarantee of protection of us are not law . This breach makes it void. The Royal Proclamation 1763 is the first general constitution for all of North America, giving the newcomers a right to live here. It is the foundation of Canada. It defines its relationship with the Indigenous People and our land, based on the Guswentha/Two Row Wampum. We are to remain separate in all ways, unless we make a treaty agreeing to some variation. We did not. The newcomers proclaim a duty to protect us from encroachment. Sections 91[24] and 109 of the Consti
