DO-IT-YOURSELF GUIDE TO DEALING WITH YOUR CRITICS/THE HATERS 1)Do not, under any circumstances, read the comments. “Anonymous” is not a real person. “Anonymous” is disappointment, weakness fighting back, and envy at its worse. The people who talk shit and complain and stick their nose in your…
“Regardless of our opinion towards the fascists, South Side ARA won’t be applauding this sentence. Groups like the SPLC may wish for prison time, but unlike them we don’t see prison as the answer. Nor do we see all prisoners as scum. We wish not to have other inmates subjected to Moudry antics. We don’t wish for our friends, family, and comrades who are incarcerated, to be hit in the head with locks by white supremacist. We would rather see Moudry on the streets receiving “justice” at the hands of anti-fascists. It is true that we did not prevent this arson attempt but neither did the state. Instead, the state has allowed Moudry the ability to organize with white supremacy gangs behind the wall. On the streets of Chicago, at this point in time he wouldn’t be so capable.”
Activist T.R. McKenzie was arrested this morning prior to his scheduled appearance at a press conference at the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. McKenzie was planning to speak about the most recent in a long history of documented code violations and human rights abuses committed by alcohol sellers in Whiteclay, Nebraska.
McKenzie was held for six hours at the Lancaster County Jail on charges of theft, criminal mischief, third degree assault, and terroristic threats, none of which have been documented or substantiated. He was released on bond the same day as his arrest. This arrest comes in the wake of several weeks of protests and encampments on the outskirts of Whiteclay.
T.R. will need support to continue fighting these charges and standing strong with Lakota allies! Please donate anything you can to help cover legal expenses.
“Most of those sleeping at the protest camp are women and children,” McKenzie said shortly after his release. “We are all working to draw attention to the devastation caused to the Lakota people by the sale of alcohol in Whiteclay.”
Whiteclay has a population of 14, yet 4 liquor stores in the town sell 12,500 cans of beer each day. It has been documented that the stores sell to bootleggers, intoxicated people, and minors, as well as routinely trade beer for sexual favors. The tiny, unincorporated town lies less than 300 feet from the border of the Pine Ridge Reservation, where the sale and consumption of alcohol is prohibited.
(Reuters) - Exxon Mobil confirmed on Wednesday that an oil spill occurred Tuesday on its Pegasus crude pipeline in Ripley County, Missouri - the same line that ruptured thousands of barrels of oil into an Arkansas neighborhood at the end of March.
An Exxon spokeswoman said a resident notified the company of oil staining on the surface near the pipeline on Tuesday. The cleanup of the one-barrel leak was near completion, she said.
The pipeline was already out of service following a spill in Mayflower, Arkansas, on March 29, Exxon said.
Exxon CARES, y’all.
What, who’s the eco-terrorist? I’d say oil and gas companies have terrorized vastly more people, living things, and ecosystems than the Earth Liberation Front ever could.
