Utah's Mni Waconi Walk & Bike to Standing Rock

We Walk and Bike to Standing Rock.
You'll leave at beginning date for walkers and end date for bikers. Be there by 26th at Tibetan temple in Boulder,Co.
. But pay close attention. I'll be finding a host to assist me there.
This happened in 1970 during nuclear protest. The walk went from SF TO VERMONT with there mayor. It ended up at white House Lawn I believe story goes. Met by police with armor. But we must stand against this oppression against our water. I need 1000s of people from all 50 states. Please share and reproduce my event Across United States. It'll take a month at longest for whole nation of Walkers and bikers start showing up at standing rock. Schedule. I'm planning on Oregon California and Washington joining in. We meet in Denver to group up.

A large anti-nuclear demonstration was held on May 6, 1979, in Washington D.C., when 125,000 people including the Governor of California, attended a march and rally against nuclear power. In New York City on September 23, 1979, almost 200,000 people attended a protest against nuclear power. Anti-nuclear power protests preceded the shutdown of the Shoreham, Yankee Rowe, Millstone I, Rancho Seco, Maine Yankee, and about a dozen other nuclear power plants.

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

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

Folklore in Honor of Water

As diverse as cultures are throughout the world, one common theme that most traditional cultures have is the respect for water as a life giving force. In the last few years, we have seen many people disregard the value of clean drinking water, and this has resulted in our people becoming ill. The fight for Standing Rock reminded us that we must honor Mother Earth and thank her for the Water she provides which gives us nourishment and rejuvenation. On this year’s Earth Day Weekend, please join us to take a moment to pay tribute to water and to show the interconnectedness of traditional communities in how we realize water is vital to our existence.  

On April 21, 2017 from 6-8pm, PANDOS will be presenting “Folklore In Honor of Water” at the Downtown Salt Lake City Library Nancy Tessman Auditorium on 210 E 400 S, Salt Lake City, UT. Different performers will present dance, music, or storytelling that specifically highlight the reverence of water in traditional cultures.

Defund Dapl-Utah, Flood Wells Fraudo
Apr

9:00am 9:00am

Defund Dapl-Utah, Flood Wells Fraudo

Speaking the only language crony capitalists and corrupt banking institutions understand, the Defund DAPL movement seeks to unite the people of the greater SLC area to pull funds, close accounts, and amplify our disgust and anger of the use of member money to back the interests of the oil industry and its philosophy of profit before people. Nearly every major bank has financial ties to dirty energy, while credit unions invest locally. 
****Most importantly, WE THE PEOPLE want to remind big banks that we do not condone the violation of Native American treaty and basic human rights*****

Since we want to take the bank by surprise, we don’t want to publicly announce our location ahead of time. We will meet at another location (The Salt Lake City Library) at 9am the day of the action to ensure everyone is on the same page and feels comfortable with the sequence of events. We will head to the respective branches around 9:45. Once everyone has made it through the line and taken their money, we will stand outside with signs having conversations and encouraging others to close accounts. 
Please wear blue as we are FLOODING the banks. Bring signs. Remove your money from Wells Fraudo!
