Grizzly bear hunting ban continues to be ignored

In BC Polytricks on September 5, 2013 at 11:05 am

Despite a bear hunting ban being imposed upon the central coast by all native nations, grizzly bear trophy hunting is still going on.  The latest idiot to defy the ban is a racist NHL hockey player who actually walked past a posted sign on native territory to kill a grizzly bear.  Here is a great documentary film released by the central coast native nations to raise awareness about the grotesque nature of the the grizzly hunt.

Can Enbridge be trusted?

In BC Polytricks on May 5, 2013 at 6:53 am

Great short documentary about the endless lies that Enbridge spins to cover up its record of destroying whole communities and the environment.

Enbridge is a major corporate criminal, ask anyone in Kalamazoo, Michigan what happened after their oil sludge pipeline ruptured.

These oil-clowns need to be shut down for good and prosecuted.

They are boardroom pirates.. a gibbet is too good for them!.. pffttt!!

Slave Labour and May Day

In BC Polytricks on May 1, 2013 at 10:00 am

Workers in Canada have been repeatedly stabbed in the back by the Harper Occupation Government.  The ‘Temporary Foreign Worker’ scam is the most glaring example of this.

Apparently 30% of new jobs created in Canada are taken by slave-labourers under the TFW program.. WTF??

The government claims to be ‘reviewing’ the program but labour leaders say that the proposed changes are like “putting lipstick on a pig”.

Its clear that the Harper Occupation Government is all about screwing the Canadian worker by driving their wages into the ditch.

So I guess celebrating workers rights on this May Day might be a bit premature..

 

 

More Ta’Kaiya Blaney

In BC Polytricks, Polytricks on March 10, 2013 at 10:18 am

 Ta’Kaiya Blaney is an 11 year old singer, song-writer, environmental and native rights activist.  She is a breath of fresh air and hope in a world controlled by liars and manipulators.

I’m a big fan of hers and have blogged about her before.   I’m not going to apologize for posting more videos of her.. ;o)  Here she is last year in Nanaimo.

She doesn’t take payment for her work so it was great to see the spontaneous outpouring of generosity and gratitude when she sang at Swinomish tribal canoe journey two years ago..

Ta’Kaiya Blaney sings Earth Revolution!

In BC Polytricks, Polytricks on February 16, 2013 at 2:10 pm

Ta’Kaiya Blaney is my hero.  An 11 year old singer-activist from Sliammon First Nation.  She has been speaking out and singing her protest songs against Enbridge Pipelines and for Occupy and Idle no More.

Here is a video of her speech and protest song “Earth Revolution”, blowing away the crowd at an Idle no More protest in Vancouver this winter.

She is Harper and Enbridge’s worst nightmare.  A young passionate, articulate native person speaking and singing out against the criminality of state and corporation in the rape and plundering of our environment.

Here is her protest song against the coming oil spills on our coastal waters.

It takes a lot to move this old cynic to tears but Ta’Kaiya does it effortlessly.  She is an inspiration, just what this struggle needed to raise our hopes for the future.  Here is a CBC special on her amazing life.

Her lyrics are here.. http://www.takaiyablaney.com/kids-page-2/ .. yep she writes her own lyrics.

Human Rights Watch spotlights Highway of Tears

In BC Polytricks, Polytricks on February 14, 2013 at 11:36 am

Human Rights Watch released a very damning report on the RCMP concerning the Highway of Tears.  Yet again the RCMP are being exposed as the violent racist arm of the federal government’s ongoing repression and abuse of Canada’s native peoples, particularly their women.

The name of the report, “Those who take us away” is the Carrier Nation‘s translated name for the police.

Its not the first time that international human rights groups have been stirred to action by racist violence from the Canadian government.  In 2008 the UN took Canada to task for “urgent concerns including violence against Indigenous women, extractive industries on Indigenous lands, the high rates of incarceration of Indigenous peoples, .. etc.”

As far back as 2004 Amnesty International took Canada to task for “the egregious neglect of the safety of Native women in particular”.

Killing the Wolf shooting the messenger?

In BC Polytricks, Polytricks on January 23, 2013 at 7:27 am

Worldwide the wolf slaughter continues without any real justification.  In Russia wolves are killed because of livestock losses but the cost of the hunt is greater than the livestock losses.  In Norway the wolf population is estimated at 25 animals but the state issued hunting permits for 12 wolves.  In Alberta and BC the government subsidizes a continuing wolf kill to ‘protect’ woodland caribou whose main threat comes from logging not wolves.

The wolf was man’s competitor a long time ago.  Our social structure is quite similar. They were the first animals that we domesticated.  Now we kill them not because they are competitors but because they remind us that our greed has consumed even the last wild spaces.  But mostly they have to die because of our hatred.

Interesting how wolves howl.. domesticated dogs just bark…

The real sock-puppets for Tar Sands oil

In BC Polytricks, Humour on January 22, 2013 at 9:20 am

Kathryn Marshall and Ezra Levant  are the real sock-puppets of Tar Sands Oil as this video hilariously points out.  Both are an embarrassment to the pubic debate on Tar Sands oil.  Speaking of which there is no debate on Tar Sands oil these days.  Just stage-managed ‘media events’ designed to pretend to listen to the public.

 

Idle No More protests spread across the continent

In BC Polytricks, Polytricks on January 2, 2013 at 1:53 pm

The Harper Occupation government is running into stiff, determined opposition from Canada’s native peoples.  They have had enough of the racist, sneaky and dismissive policies coming out of Ottawa.  Their protest against the new laws that would sell their land out from under their feet is called Idle No More.  The Harper Occupation government has withdrawn environmental protection from the nations river, lakes.  Then they passed new laws undermining the  laws that once protected the pathetically small amount of remaining native lands.  This will allow the notoriously corrupt bantustan tribal governments to sell the land out from under their peoples feet.

Chief Theresa Spence’s hunger strike is particularly poignant since the Harper Occupation government publicly humiliated and ridiculed her over the Attawapiskat Housing crisis last year.  The housing crisis was a national scandal but of course the Harper Occupation government was only interested in damage control.  The squalor and neglect at Attawapiskat occurs all over Canada on native lands administered by the Federal Government, its deliberate neglect.

Now she is on hunger strike and still the government deliberately ignoring the issue.  The Harper Occupation government has billions of tax dollars to develop Tar Sands Oil but no money for Canadian treaty obligations?

Chinese corporations don’t hire locals

In BC Polytricks on December 17, 2012 at 10:53 am

An American academic is calling the Canadian government, stupid and naive for allowing Chinese state corporations to take over local businesses in BC and elsewhere in Canada.  He says that the Chinese state corporations have a long history of importing their own workers on projects overseas for cost and security reasons.  This is happening all over Africa and Asia and now Canada.  So courting Chinese state corporations to invest in Canada actually undermines employment.  Are governments federally and provincially so desperate for investment money as to sell their voters down the river like this?  I guess this desperate race to the bottom speaks volumes as to the real state of the local and global economy.

The situation has got so extreme that even ‘temporary’ Chinese workers are suing local unions for complaining about how they are taking local jobs.   The ‘temporary worker program’ is a knife in the back of the local unemployed.  This is how badly we are losing the class war.  Foreign corporations now have more rights than local citizens.  There is only one way that this can be turned around.  National laws have to be passed banning corporate rights over national rights and the public good.
