XL PIPELINE

de XL pipeline is één van de meest omstreden nieuwe grote projecten van de olielobby op de wereld. Sinds de Tar Sands in Canada ontgonnen worden is de oliepijpleiding een issue. Als u hier klikt, vindt u de promosite die belooft dat dit het veiligste project is ooit uitgevoerd voor het transport van olie. Omdat er veel protest tegen is, omdat er veel ongelukken gebeuren die in de doofpot verdwijnen en omdat de wereld niet zit te springen om dit soort oplossingen voor de energiecrisis, ben ik deze pagina begonnen op 20 april 2013. De laatste nieuwtjes plaats ik boven in de pagina, dus wil u meer weten, begin onderaan en lees naar boven. De nieuwtjes zijn gescheiden door een stippel lijn.

18 juni Native American and Canadian Indigenous People declare war on the Harper administration.

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF- CUSTER and the 7th Calvary and HARPER and the Conservative Government
Despite clear and repeated warnings from the.7th Cavalry’s Crow and Arikara scouts, Major General George Custer’s arrogance, unawareness and ignorance caused him to make a fatal decision. On June 25 1876, at the Little Bighorn River, Custer and the 7th Calvary suffered the greatest military defeat in US Military history. It was an overwhelming victory for the Great Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapaho Nations!
Almost 138 years later, on June 17, 2014, Prime Minister Harper and his Conservative Government made the same arrogant, unaware, and ignorant decision in approving the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline.
The ultimate defeat of the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline and Harper’s Conservative Government will not be due to firearms, but rather sacred Indigenous prayers, songs and ceremonies coupled with the unprecedented, unified action of Indigenous First Nations and their Allies across Turtle Island that will not allow any proposed Tar Sands Pipelines and related Tankers to pass our Indigenous Territories.

Dancer Harriet Prince from Manitoba
Harriet Prince, a visitor from Manitoba dances at the Idle No More rally outside the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Darla Goodwin wasn’t surprised when she first heard about the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline.

“We have ancient pictorials and scrolls that speak of a time when the women rise up,” she said. “A great snake was supposed to cross the land and poison Turtle Island, and we’re looking at that as the pipeline.”

Goodwin, an organizer for the Idle No More Vancouver and a member of the Cree First Nation, points to a prophecy, made several hundred years ago and passed down through the indigenous peoples of North America, that describes a time when a great snake will travel across the country, poisoning the land, the water and the air. There is another prophecy that references a time when one of the races would lose its way, and it would be up to the others—the women in particular—to remind the fallen nation what is means to steward the land.

She said her people were definitely not surprised when four women from Saskatchewan founded Idle No More in response to Bill C-45 and began a movement that now spans the country.

Matriarchal First Nations societies are based on traditional teachings of the moon and earth as female beings, the Mother and the Grandmother, and the 28-day cycle.

“In our culture the women are actually the leaders of our community,” Goodwin said. “The clan mothers were the ones who decided when people would move, they decided who married who, what grounds were good to hunt on.”

Goodwin’s grandfather was present for the signing of Treaty 4, but she said it was the clan mothers who decided what needed to go into that treaty.

“Traditionally, non-indigenous folks would see chiefs standing out in front, but what the people didn’t know was that those chiefs took their directions from the women.”

Now, with the Enbridge hearings taking place in BC and Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence entering her third week without food in Ontario, Goodwin said the struggles of First Nations across the country come down to one key issue: will Stephen Harper respect indigenous land rights?

One of the biggest misconceptions non-indigenous Canadians have, she said, is that Crown lands belong to the government.

“All the Crown land across Canada is owned by Aboriginal people and Canadians do not know that.” BC’s unceded Coast Salish territory, while not covered by its own treaty, is still Crown land, and by law, the federal government is required to have free, prior and informed consent from First Nations before undertaking any measure that affects the land.

“I don’t foresee Harper backpedalling whatsoever,” Goodwin said. “I know that our next stop as indigenous people is to fight him on an international scale. … And if it has to go to international court, it will. Until we lose in international court we will not stop.”

But Goodwin is quick to stress that this is not an indigenous movement. It’s not solely about a First Nations issue. It’s a labour movement and it’s a women’s movement. It’s a people’s movement in response to a human rights issue.

This was immediately apparent today at the Idle No More Vancouver rally on the steps at the Vancouver Art Gallery where First Nations leaders and youth were flanked by members of the BC Nurses’ Union, CUPE and migrant justice group No One is Illegal.

“We are wanting to educate non-indigenous people, especially seafaring people, farmers, unions, educators, that this bill affects them as well,” Goodwin said.

More than a dozen speakers took the mic this afternoon, including elders and grandmothers from nations all over the country, members of Aboriginal youth groups, dancers and drummers.

Grand Chief Phillip Stewart, President of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, said the failure to honour the treaties has voided them, and demanded Harper negotiate with the First Nations. He told supporters that nothing could stop the uprising of the women and their people.

“There is nothing that will stop these prophecies from being fulfilled,” he said. “There is not death. Just a change of worlds.”

Kelly White, Idle No More organizer and a member of the Squamish First Nation, said that by rights, Harper should no longer be in power at all.

“We’re going for impeachment,” she said. “Actually, by law the house should impeach him, but the house remains silent.”

She echoed Goodwin’s sentiments that Bill C-45 is an affront to all Canadians, indigenous or not. “The Harper government just impeached the voices of the unions and First Nations because there was no outreach to the public,” she continued. “He just passed bills without even the protocol in the house for members of parliament to represent their constituents.”

One of the last speakers of the day was Crystal Molina Smith, a poet and a member of the Gitga’at Nation of Hartley Bay. With her 10-month-old son strapped to her chest, she read a poem about becoming a casualty of Enbridge oil and told the crowd she began writing poems when she was 15 to express her anger at the government.

“In the past, our ancestors lived in a good way,” she said, her voice quiet but firm. “I want to look to the future on a positive note, but Enbridge, if they get their way, there will be no positive future.”

Oil Pipeline Bursts Into Yellowstone River

Alexis Bonogofsky/National Wildlife Foundation

The National Wildlife Foundation's Alexis Bonogofsky lives on the Yellowstone River and has a farm there. When the ExxonMobil oil pipeline below the Yellowstone River burst late Friday night leaking oil into the river and contaminating the local waterway, her farmland was contaminated with oil from the spill. Exxon officials told Alexis that she should not document the effects the spill has on her property and that she should stay from the oil "just to be safe." They told her "off the record" that she should move her livestock away from the parts of the farm affected by the spill. 

She wrote about her experience on Sunday morning: 

I walked down to our bottom pasture because the River was supposed to flood and I wanted to see if it had come over its banks. Sure enough, there was about 2 feet of water in the pasture. I got this overwhelming smell of hydrocarbons (very distinct smell especially around here because there are 3 refineries). I checked our local paper and saw that a pipeline had ruptured. Even though this had been going on for over 7 hours, and we are right on the River, we received no call, no warning...nothing. I had to find out about it by seeing it in our pastures. Apparently they evacuated people further up stream that were closer to the pipeline.

The plume of oil is about 25 miles (40 kilometres) long. 140 people were evacuated from their homes because of the spill. The oil was discovered around 11:30 pm Friday and the pipe was shut off by midnight. 

About 750 to 1, 000 barrels of oil leaked into the river over half an hour before the pipeline was shut down on Saturday according to Pam Malek, an ExxonMobil spokeswoman. Other Exxon officials have been quoted saying  up to 42, 000 gallons of oil leaked into the river. About 120 miles of the waterway in Billings, Montana is being considered contaminated. The oil flowed easily along the river because of flood conditions expected this weekend. 

Exxon has called in its Global Response Team, an emergency cleanup crew, out of Houston to direct the clean up efforts, according to the Billings Gazette. They have also contacted about 100 contractors out of Washington to come in and help. Montana's state government is going to monitor Exxon throughout the cleaning process. Crews from local refineries spent parts of Friday night and all day Saturday working to clean up. 

Bonogofsky said she could see, "birds trying to take off that couldn’t because of oil on their wings, I saw a spiny soft shell turtle dive into a glob of oil."
