Link to interactive map of Jan. 11 Idle No More global solidarity actions:
Idle No More is the North American First Nations movement involving saving their drinking water from fracking interests, and their land from the Tar Sands and Keystone XL pipeline "eminent domain" thefts. And it goes so much further than this:
"Words like mni, meaning not simply water, but meaning life. Wakanija, meaning not just children, but rather sacred beings. I wonder how different society would be if it looked at the world through the lens of just these two words alone; children treated as sacred beings and water treated as life."

3. We had a really great rally in Anchorage today
with about 125 people present. Speakers represented Gwitch'in Athabascan, Yup'ik, Inupiat, and Tsimshian tribes. Alaska's native people have much in common with Canada's as far as the pillaging of the land is concerned.
I'll be posting photos later. I got some really good ones.
