MNN. Oct. 20, 2016. NYS District Court of Freddie Scullin [Bones] pulled another dirty corporate “my’trick”. A day after the verdict on October 14, 2016 was in, which let off all the INDIAN Detail mercs for their criminal enterprise at onondaga, all the evidence and exhibits was boxed and sent to the plaintiffs.
I-81 INDIAN Detail think they got away with it!
I-81 INDIAN Detail thinks they got away with it!
Jones, et al v. Parmley, et al, 98CV374 is being appealed and this evidence is suppose to go to the 2nd Circuit Court.
Local Rule 79.1(d) requires that evidence can only be removed after the case is over. They could be tampered with and derail the appeal. The Onondaga 15 plaintiffs were told to not open the boxes.

onondaga 15, whatever you do, don't open the box!
onondaga 15, whatever you do, don’t open the box!
They want to get rid of the clean evidence that Judge Scullin [Bones] kept out of the case. Otherwise they could not have gotten the verdict they wanted to cover up the criminal acts of the I-81 INDIAN Detail.

No, it's Freddie Scullin [Bones].
Freddie Scullin [Bones]. “Get rid of it quick!”
The court demonstrated again that it is a big filthy dirty chimney full of soot, sediment and dust. The court personnel, judges, lawyers and clerks, are the soot that’s accumilted. Anyone taken in there comes out covered in the filth. Don’t wear white when you go to court as you’ll be covered with their smoke and mirrors.

The court is a private corporation for the profit of its shareholders. Their cops book people and create customers. The victims are captured and brought into the Admiralty vessel for processing. The chief pieces of soot figure out all the charges they can lay. Then the victim is given a deal to pay or go to the big fire house for a short or permanent stay or eliminated altogether.
Scullin [Bones]: "My job is to protect the business!"

STANDING ROCK, North Dakota -- Morton County police and jail guards are violating human rights and engaged in militarized sexual violence, as they illegally strip search Lakotas who are defending the Missouri River, and ancestral burial places, from Dakota Access Pipeline.
LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, who owns the land where Sacred Stone Camp is located, said her daughter was strip searched, and left naked in a jail cell all night.
"They are targeting our families," Allard said.
Allard describes how Morton County police followed a car that her daughter, an adult, was riding in. Her daughter was a passenger in the back seat.
She was arrested with no cause given and taken to Morton County Jail.
"Three male officers, and one female officer stripped her naked. Then they took her naked and put her in a jail cell and left her there all night."
Then, in the morning, they came in and gave her a jump suit.
When Allard questioned what the charge was, Morton Co. continually changed their response
as to what the charge is. Morton Co. made various claims about charges, including speeding, but her daughter wasn't driving, and attempted to charge $500 for "living at the camp," and then Morton Co. basically said they didn't like her attitude.
Allard said, "They are targeting our families."
"They are using every means necessary," said Allard, pointing out how everyone is monitored by helicopters and planes overhead, and at the checkpoints.
"We have to stop them."
Allard said the pipeline has to be stopped. It can not be allowed to destroy these sacred places.
"If we don't stand up now, there will be nothing left of our people."
"Once that water is gone, there's no one who is going to come and help us," said Allard of the Missouri River and Cannon Ball River, which converge here.
"We exist, we live with the land," she said, adding that her people live on the land, and hunt and fish.
"We have to face the storm. We are not backing down."
Allard describes the escalation of events, which now includes police in riot gear and tanks present while those camped at Standing Rock camp are praying for the water.
"Not anybody, anybody, in these camps are violent."
As Dakota Access Pipeline rushes now to meet its deadline with construction, Allard said the pipeline must be stopped.
Allard describes the water and the right to live.
Asked about the burial places here, Allard said her son, father and cousin are buried here, up on the hill. She describes who is buried here in these grounds.
Describing this area, she said that this was a Sundance ground and a major trade area. The entire area is a cultural property.
Allard describes how the fight is for survival, and this survival depends on the water and the river.
"We have a right to live."

Militarized sexual violence:
1) See this link from Rutgers University (Center for Women's Global Leadership) too where they talk about the "Intersection of violence against women and militarism" there is a chapter about violence exercised by the state.
There is a phrase I like from this report: "States employ militaristic ideologies that attempt to pass off violence as security measures" on page 6.  Another quote I liked was: "Political violence against women is also used as a tactic to frighten women from joining political movements." (page 6). Another is: "Sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict situations is used to reinforce gendered hierarchies. It is also used as a tactic of war to drive fear, humiliate and punish women, their families and communities"(page 7). This seems to be obviously the case here, targeting women that are family members of the woman owner of the land, is a militaristic tactic to frighten women from joining the current political movement at Standing Rock. Its a type of psychological terrorism on US land perpetrated by state police who are serving a private oil company instead of the public.
2) It is quite a paradox that the UN is having a campaign to end gender violence this year, starting Nov 25th, and the USA is showing such an embarrassing example of the opposite.  It would be quite shocking if the UN was invited to Morton to organize an orange campaign against violence against women by state actors, especially if perpetrated by agents of Morton county police:
3) The specific case described in this article falls under the "violence against women in custody" of this link:
4) This situation resembles the horror stories told by native american woman, Rigoberta Menchu, from Guatemala, and the horrors lived by indigenous women in Mexico today. There is no doubt that this was an "arbitrary detention" and a case of "gender-based violence" as described in this article narrating violence against women human right defenders protecting land and resources. This is scary similar to the arbitrary detention of 11 native american women in Atenco Mexico ( 2016) defending their lands against the construction of a new airport for Mexico City , who were raped by police as a punishment for participating in political activism. This is a famous case that has reached the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) because there was no investigation by Mexican police (obviously):

Standing Rock, Dakota del Norte, Estados Unidos - LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, quien es dueña de la tierra donde se encuentra el campamento Standing Rock, donde varias naciones indígenas protestan contra los oleoductos petroleros, dijo que su hija fue desnudada, y que la dejaron así en una celda de la cárcel toda la noche.
"Ellos están dirigiendo ataques directos contra nuestras familias," dijo Allard.
Allard describió cómo la policía del condado de Morton en el estado norteamericano de Dakota del Norte, siguió a un coche en el cual su hija, una mujer adulta, iba como pasajera en el asiento trasero.
Su hija fue detenida sin causa específica y llevada a la cárcel del condado de Morton en Estados Unidos.
"Tres agentes del sexo masculino y una mujer policía la desnudaron. Luego se la llevaron desnuda y la pusieron en una celda de la cárcel donde la dejaron toda la noche."
Luego, en la mañana, vinieron y le dieron un traje de presidiaria.
Cuando Allard cuestionó cuales eran los cargos, el Condado de Morton cambió continuamente su respuesta con respecto a cuáles eran los cargos por las que su hija estaba encarcelada. El condado de Morton hizo varias afirmaciones sobre varios cargos, incluyendo exceso de velocidad, pero su hija no estaba conduciendo, también trató de cobrarle una multa de $ 500 por "vivir en el campamento," y luego, finalmente, el condado de Morton, básicamente dijo que no les gustaba su actitud.
Allard dijo: "Ellos están atacando directamente a nuestras familias."
"Están utilizando todos los medios que tienen a su disposición, " dijo Allard, señalando cómo todo el mundo está controlado por helicópteros y por aviones que sobrevuelan la zona, además de los retenes policiacos y militares en las carreteras."
"Tenemos que detenerlos."
Allard dijo que el oleoducto tiene que ser detenido. No se puede permitir que destruya estos lugares sagrados.
"Si no estamos unidos para detener esto ahora, no quedara nada de nuestro pueblo."
"Una vez que el agua se haya ido, no habrá nadie que venga a ayudarnos", dijo Allard del río Missouri y el río Cannon Ball, que convergen aquí.
"Existimos, vivimos con la tierra", dijo, añadiendo que su población vive de la tierra,  la caza y la pesca.
"Tenemos que hacer frente a la tormenta. No nos vamos a echar para atrás."
Allard describió la escalada de acontecimientos, que ahora incluyen a la policía antidisturbios y tanques, presentes mientras que las personas que protestan, quienes se hacen llamar "los protectores del agua" en el campamento de Standing Rock, rezan por el agua.
"No hay nadie, nadie, en estos campamentos que sea violento."
Como los oleoductos del Acceso Dakota se apresuran ahora por cumplir con el plazo de construcción, Allard dijo que el oleoducto debe ser detenido.
Allard describió el agua y el derecho a vivir.
Se le preguntó sobre los lugares de sepulturas sagradas aquí, Allard dijo que su hijo, su padre y su primo están enterrados ahí, en la colina. Ella describió quienes están enterrados aquí en estos terrenos.
Al describir esta área, dijo que estos eran terrenos de ceremonias y bailes sagrados dedicados al festival del sol llamados en inglés "Sundance" así como una zona comercial. Toda la zona es un bien cultural importante.
Allard describió cómo es la lucha por la supervivencia, y esto depende de la supervivencia del agua y del río.
"Tenemos derecho a vivir."

Diné Stand with Standing Rock 'No DAPL'

DILKON, Arizona -- A delegation of Diné citizens and allies has just returned from a week of lending their labor, solidarity, and prayers to the NoDAPL (Dakota Access Pipeline) movement in Standing Rock Sioux territory.
Organized by the grassroots organization Diné Citizens Against Ruining our Environment, the 21-person delegation journeyed from the Navajo Nation to the Mni Sose (Missouri) River, near Cannon Ball, North Dakota.
The caravan of one pickup truck, SUV, and 15-passenger van journeyed northeast, through Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota and covered 1,170 miles: the exact same mileage of the proposed oil pipeline (1,172 miles).
Early in the morning of October 10, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, our delegation set up camp at the Oceti Sakowin resistance encampment of more than 2,000 People, an expansive landscape of tipis, camping tents, RVs, painted school buses, army tents, tarps, and DIY wooden structures abutting the Cannonball River.
Among the group were Carol Davis, Lori Goodman, and Earl Tulley of Diné CARE; Teresa Juarez Schreck of the Peace Development Fund and New Mexico Alliance and four generations of her family from Chimayó; Aaron Toadlena of Sawmills; Kendra Pinto from Twin Pines; Patricia Nezzie and Derrick Joe from Dilkon; and Seth Goodman and son Kiyaani from Denver. Diné relatives Ilene, Gary, Kyle, Seana and Dominic Mitchell of Dilkon joined the group later in the week, and the delegatifon linked up with other allies from Navajo Nation, including Kern Collymore of Gallup/Lupton, JourdanBennett-Begaye, Rob Eldridge, and Dana Powell and Ricki Draper from western North Carolina.

On April 1st, 2016, citizens of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe established a Spirit Camp on the proposed route of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) to protect water sources, land, and sacred sites from the $3.7 billion oil pipeline that is set to run from the Bakken shale fields of North Dakota to Illinois, moving 470,000 barrels of oil per day.
Hundreds of Native nations from the United States, Canada, and Latin America have joined the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe since April, becoming the largest gathering of indigenous people in over a century.
There are now three encampments along two banks of the Cannonball River: the original camp called Sacred Stone and the Rosebud camp are on the south side of the river, and Oceti Sakowin camp is on the north side. Declaring themselves “protectors not protestors,” the many Nations now gathered at Standing Rock have a new vision of multinational indigenous resistance, prayerful action, and trans-border resource sovereignty through nonviolent direct action, the arts, and social media to stop the “black snake” that threatens the Missouri River and its watershed.
They (and we) are water protectors and land defenders, demanding the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Energy Transfer Partners to immediately cease the pipeline construction, as bulldozers consume more and more land in the black snake’s dangerous crawl toward the Missouri River. Misrepresentations in the media have depicted the prayerful assemblies as “riots” and the water protectors as violent protestors.
Military drones and helicopters flew over the camp almost daily, surveilling the tipis, horses, tents and protectors below. We found a space that was vigilant, yet welcoming – full of laughter and song as well as a strong sense of urgency to declare, Mni wiconi … water is life!
At the invitation of Earl Tulley’s relative Jeanne Roach (Lakota), the Diné delegation nestled our camp next to the Wild Oglala Kitchen, in the center of the Oceti Sakowin encampment.
Many in this group have been here for nearly three months, and most plan to stay on through the coming winter. The elders welcomed our group, offering a warm fire, hot coffee, buffalo and potato stew, and thick grilled bread we mistook for “tortillas” to fortify us against the very cold weather.
Feeding nearly 80 people a day, Oglala Kitchen – led by the formidable cook and storyteller Tweetie – is one of at least four open kitchens in Oceti Sakowin, crafting wood-fired stews and other meals from the generosity of donated foods, the labor of many volunteers, and the inventiveness of Tweetie’s recipes. The Diné cooks reciprocated, offering sizzling frybread cooked on camp stoves and a feast of stew and roasted mutton (thanks, Kern!). Meat from the head of a freshly cooked Churro made for special breakfasts, with cowboy coffee, as the sun rose and we huddled around Mario’s well-kept fire ring, thawing out from the 22-degree night before.
Each day, all hands were on deck cooking, washing dishes (with hauled-in water), stoking the fire, sorting through donations, and sharing resources (sleeping bags, hand warmers, mugs, snacks), all amidst both laughter and tears, as we told stories, sang songs, and each experienced in our own ways, together, how much is at stake in this struggle. Bright red bandanas bearing the phrase, Tó’ éí ‘iiná (Water is Life) served as special gifts to our new friends, identifying an extended family of relations.
Collectively, our delegation brought in over $2000 of food and medical supplies to Oceti Sakowin, with funds mobilized by Diné CARE and by students from Boone, North Carolina. The delegation also helped facilitate generous contributions of cash, winter clothing and food from the Puyallup Tribe and David Turnipseed and family from Washington state. Diné CARE brought in and set up a solid, military style Cabela tent, outfitted with a wood-burning stove, large enough to sleep ten to fifteen people and store dry goods.
The Southwest delegation lent support in others ways, too, with thinking and planning as well as with designing and creating.
Elders in our delegation participated at the invitation of Lakota elders in a council discussion, weighing the pros and cons of relocating tipis, tents, fires, and the kitchen closer to the main entry or closer to the river, as a winterization strategy. Mr. Tulley and Mr. Toadlena creatively repurposed a geodesic dome structure, covering it with tarps secured with found wire and rope, staking it to the ground, and then installing handmade wooden shelving for canned goods and other supplies, creating a new and huge walk-in food pantry and meeting space for the Oglala campers.
Observing the rapidly dwindling firewood reserves and the dropping temperatures, we took the Diné CARE pickup truck to Bismarck and returned with 3/5 of a ton of wood, a chainsaw, and directions in obtaining the city’s forestry department’s wood remnants – the thriftiest way to get the largest amount of firewood.
At other moments during the week, members of the delegation joined thousands of others in prayer, in social media self-reporting, in counsel, and in direct actions. Mr. Tulley spoke at the sacred fire on October 14 while the day before, we gathered at the Standing Rock Prairie Knights Casino for a benefit concert by our long-time friends and allies, Indigo Girls, organized by Winona LaDuke of Honor the Earth.
We visited other camps, greeting old friends from the American Indian Movement, Honor the Earth, Indigenous Environmental Network, Indigenous Women’s Network, First People’s Fund, and other groups, and making new friends with folks from the Two Spirits camp, from Shining Light Kitchen, from New Orleans, Oklahoma, California, North Carolina, and just across the river in Standing Rock.
On our final night, Dennis Banks, now 80 years young, came to offer prayer over the evening meal at Oglala Kitchen, saying: “You all here, this is the good fight. You are fighting the good fight. And we are in it, no matter what happens. But still, we must win. We must.” Banks then smiled and began to dance, locking elbows to swing other dancers, as a musician played his fiddle by the fire.
As we travel home this weekend, we are filled with images, sounds, smells, and emotions from the week, and the acute knowledge that we connected with one of the most urgent human rights and environmental issues of our time.
We each aim to deliver that energy to our home communities along with a call to increase each of our own commitments to considering how we impact the next generations and what we are called to do, right now.
One of the Lakota horseback relay riders, upon immediately returning from a 256-mile, five-day protection ride, shared that he has a three-year old child, saying, “we are here for our children’s grandchildren.”
As the Diné and Chimayó delegations greet their extended families and neighbors, and continue to work to end violence, abuse, and intensive resource extraction in their home territories, the noDAPL movement offers an anchoring point for everyone’s ongoing work.
Relationships formed on the Standing Rock prairie reach across the continent and the globe, connecting diverse struggles for self-determination and social justice.
The black snake in North Dakota has iron and steel replicas in the Southwest, poisoning Diné water and land, forcing difficult questions about the future of Navajo energy development.
As we continue to send support back to Standing Rock, we might allow the new and renewed relations of this week to build power for all our work, in each of our homes.

Kelcy Warren is the face of genocide for Native Americans

Kelcy Warren the Face of Genocide for Native Americans

Censored News Genocide Man of the Year

The greed for oil money means that young and old are risking their futures, and illegal strip searches, to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline

By Brenda Norrell
Censored News

STANDING ROCK, North Dakota -- Kelcy Warren has become the face of genocide for Native Americans. The Dakota Access Pipeline is primarily owned by Kelcy Warren, CEO of Energy Transfer Partners in Dallas.
For Native Americans, Kelcy Warren’s greed has meant risking their futures and freedom, and being victims of illegal strip searches.
LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, Lakota/Dakota, who owns the land where Sacred Stone Camp is located, said her daughter was strip searched, and left naked in a jail cell all night.
Allard describes how Morton County police followed a car that her daughter, an adult, was riding in. Her daughter, a passenger in the back seat, was arrested with no cause given and taken to Morton County Jail.
"Three male officers, and one female officer stripped her naked. Then they took her naked and put her in a jail cell and left her there all night,” Allard told TYT Politics in a video interview.
The Morton County Sheriff continues to violate human rigthts, civil rights and human decency as it defends the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
One young Lakota man -- who was not at the camp on the day that he was charged with a misdemeanor -- was still forced to spend the night in jail. He was strip searched and humiliated before the charge was dismissed the next morning.
The livestreamers, Unicorn Riot, have had four livestreamers arrested while being present for coverage as media. Cody Hall, Red Warrior Camp media spokesman, spent four days in jail after being charged for being present.
The riot charge against Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman was dismissed this week. Actress Shailene Woodley, arrested while live streaming, is also charged.
Unicorn Riot’s public records request reveals that for Morton County, it is all about the money and cashing in on over-policing and oppression with the National Guard and police forces from other regions.
Morton County has blocked peaceful water protectors engaged in prayer, with armored vehicles, riot police, and pointed loaded assault weapons at women, children and elderly.
Dakota Access Pipeline security guards have attacked water protectors with vicious dogs and pepper spray, while they were defending the burial places from DAPL bulldozers ripping through the earth.
Native Americans are protecting the Missouri River and burial places from Dakota Access Pipeline. Dakota Access Pipeline is now threatening the Missouri River with an underwater crude oil pipeline. The river is the water source of millions.

Kelcy Warren cut a CD for Jackson Browne. But all the tunes in the world can't make him cool. Warren even got President Obama to sign a presidential permit for his pipeline to cross the border into Mexico with his poisonous fracked gas, to poison the people there, and bulldoze through ancient burial places in Big Bend. Warren doesn't mind putting at risk the drinking water of millions with a crude oil pipeline under the Missouri River, to increase his billions in the Dakotas. Warren doesn't care if young and old risk their freedom, and are subjected to illegal strip searches by Morton County. Warren doesn't care if he illegally steals the small farms of the poor in Iowa.
Warren is Censored News' Genocide Man of the Year.
