Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!
Apr
24
to May 5

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City. http://bit.ly/PFIIRegistration

Deadline March 30th 2017

Radical Movie Night! Screens Noam Chomsky & the NoDAPL Struggle

Radical Movie Night! Screens Noam Chomsky & the NoDAPL Struggle

Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) and RADAR present Radical Movie Night!, a bi-monthly, documentary series intended to inspire, challenge, and educate participants toward democracy. From 6 pm to 8 pm on Thursday, April 13, the co-hosts present full-length and short films for a double feature with free admission, at Evans Brothers Coffee Roasters, 524 Church Street in Sandpoint, Idaho.

In the April 2015 biography Requiem for the American Dream: Noam Chomsky and the Principles of Concentration of Wealth and Power (http://requiemfortheamericandream.com/), interviews over four years with the most quoted intellectual and author alive provide penetrating insights into the defining characteristic and legacy of our time – a half-century of deliberate, historically unprecedented inequality favoring the most wealthy at the expense of the majority. Noam Chomsky’s profoundly personal and thought provoking discourses and reflections on his life of activism and political participation offer potent reminders and hope that power ultimately belongs to the governed.

Through the first episode of Trouble – the March 2017, short video Killing the Black Snake: Behind the Scenes of the #NODAPL Struggle (https://sub.media/video/trouble-season-1-episode-1/) – grassroots, independent, media collective sub.Media looks beyond the mainstream narratives about the Standing Rock indigenous and allied resistance encampment, to understand its overlooked dynamics, including serious disagreements over tactics to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

Please join RADAR and WIRT for these screenings and discussions of radical films and videos produced to aid current, worldwide, social and environmental struggles and promote just, sustainable, shared solutions. These events and ongoing, regional, climate activism rely on donations from viewers and supporters. Visit the WIRT website and facebook pages for further, online, information resources, and call 208-610-5354 with your questions about this documentary series.

Food for Thought Film Series: DIVEST!

TICKETS ARE NOT REQUIRED

FREE screening Wednesday, March 22 doors open at 6:30pm with the film starting at 7pm at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, 508 S. Main, Moscow, ID.

A big thank you to our co-sponsor for the Food for Thought Film Series, the University of Idaho Sustainability Center! Join us for a FREE community screening ofDIVEST! on Wednesday, March 22 at 7pm. Stick around after the film for a short talk and open Q+A with Nez Perce activist, Gary Dorr.

Film Synopsis:
As world governments struggle to meet the aspirational limit of 1.5°C of global warming agreed to at COP21 in Paris, the ‘Do the Math’ campaign is gaining international support. Targeting the fossil fuel industry in an effort to withdraw its social license to operate, DIVEST! chronicles Bill McKibben’s work on the 'Do the Math' bus tour across the United States in 2012 as it launched the fossil fuel divestment campaign.

Blending global warming science, concert performances, and inspiring speeches each night, Bill McKibben and special guests laid out the findings in his landmark Rolling Stone article 'Global Warming's Terrifying New Math' and made both the moral and historical case for divestment. Three years later over 500 institutions representing over 3 trillion dollars in assets have committed to divest. The film explores the inspiration and action that can happen when we engage our communities. 

Running Time: 77 minutes

Treaty Rights in a Changing Environment

  • Red Lion Hotel Lewiston (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Nimiipuu Protecting the Environment is proud to host a tribal conference on March 17-18 in Lewiston, Idaho. The conference, Treaty Rights in a Changing Environment, will aim to bring about a deeper understanding of treaty rights and the responsibilities of tribal members and non-tribal members to respect, uphold and act according to those rights. It is also meant to foster relationships between tribal groups and environmental organizations to better work together on campaigns.

Please register here: http://www.nimiipuuprotecting.org/treaty-rights-in-a-changing-environ

The conference will highlight real-world and real-time movements that exemplify the need to understand and uphold treaty rights, including the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s fight to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from degrading tribal lands and contaminating drinking water, and the Nez Perce Tribe’s fight to remove the four lower Snake River dams to recover native, wild salmon populations and restore the tribe’s treaty rights to fish the salmon as they have in their past, in their culture and tradition.

Specific times for the two-day conference are as follows: Friday, March 17 from 9am to 4pm and Saturday, March 18 from 9am to 3pm. Please note: When registering, you are registering for both days of the conference.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all conference attendees. We ask that non-tribal members consider a $50 donation to help cover costs.

Solidarity with Standing and Muslim Immigrants

to Feb 5

Solidarity with Standing and Muslim Immigrants

Update: Representatives and supporters of the Muslim community are welcome to gather beside the Standing Rock demonstration, in mutual reflection of resistance against the current administration's executive action banning Muslim immigration and Refugees from entering the USA and the executive action, ignoring environmental facts, pushing the DAPL pipeline through. We will also include a Muslim speaker from our community and include Refugees and Muslim immigration in the open forum.
We will be meeting on the Broadway bridge where we will display our signs and flags for about an hour. Afterward, we will march to the UU Church to warm up and have an open forum where people can share and discuss a possible direction/action the Eastern-Idaho water protectors will be taking. 
People from all over the country and the world have stated that they stand with Standing Rock. Let's show our support, once again, for the human right to clean water, for people that are struggling across the globe to survive, for human rights, and for the peaceful right to protest.
The Women's March brought us together; 500+ in IF, 1200+ in Poky; let us join again for Standing Rock. The Women's march was inclusive of Standing Rock, North Dakota and Flint, Michigan. It also stood for Black Lives Mater, Love Is LOve, Muslims, and for inequality against women all over the Globe....
