Today People Demonstrated to the WV Governor and Legislature Their Desire for Real Clean Water Safeguards and Regulatory Enforcement. The most entertainingly sick moment of the day was when Dustin White was ejected from the captial building for carrying in a jug of tap water from his fathers spigot in Boone County. The officers claimed it was an "Unknown Substance". And they're right, but that's what's coming out of people's taps. Watch the video of this incident below.

The Bakken oil boom in North Dakota came into sharp focus on Decemeber 30th, 2013 when a train carrying volatile bakken crude derailed and exploded near Cassleton, North Dakota. The story made national and world news, matching recent North Dakota headlines ranging from the recent uncovered not publicly disclosed 300 oils spills to a rise in sex trafficking. Now, as the fallout from the latest oil disaster clears in North Dakota, it is becoming increasingly difficult to hide the consequences of the oil industry’s effect on North Dakota’s land, air, and communities.
after months of already calling this out here, Joe Prich takes Deric Lostutter to task on Live Radio in which Lostutter admits he "can afford anything he wants" and doesn't need those donations. Which is a huge change from weeks and months ago of lostutter begging for donations
Erin Brockovich and team came down to Charleston on Monday to help people protect themselves from the corporate eco terrorists that have endangered over 300k people the Charleston, WV and 8 surrounding counties. The "spill" is not over as the chemical is currently making it's way down the Kanawha River to the Ohio River and on down the Mississip. Cities getting their water from these rivers down stream are closing their intake valves and hoping it skates past them. However no one really knows how long the MCHM (4-Methylcyclohexanemethanol) has been poisoning the drinking water of all these cities.
On the night of January 5th, Carlos – a comrade from Mexico, and Amelie and Fallon – two comrades from Canada, were arrested in relation to a Molotov attack on the Ministry of Communication and Transportation and a Nissan dealership in Mexico City. The three have since been held in detention and have limited contact with anyone, including their lawyer, and Amelie and Fallon have also been visited by the Canadian consulate. Though they were initially accused of property destruction, the three may now face additional charges of sabotage, organized crime, and terrorism. If these charges are brought forward, bail will not be possible and deportation for the two from Canada is highly unlikely. All three would then be held until trial without the possibility of release. The Mexican media now reports that our comrades will be held for an additional 40 days while the government continues its investigation.
These charges come at a time of intense crackdown by the Mexican state on anarchists; from attacks on demonstrations to torture of arrested comrades.
At this moment we need to rapidly raise funds to support our comrades. Not only for the legal costs and the potentially large bail amounts, but also to help cover their living expenses while in prison. In Mexico, prisoners have to pay for their own room and board and medical expenses while detained.

This was how I spent Thanksgiving 2005. It was truely an awesome experience.
The Rainbow Emergency Management Assembly gathered in Waveland Missahippie within days of the hurricane disaster, to feed people. They have receieved nothing but love and support from FEMA, Red Cross, numerous Church groups and Hancock County. It is said that before Katrina hippies would refer to Mississippi as MissAHippie because a hippie could easily go "missing" in Mississippi. Now Missahippie has a whole new meaning. The story of Waveland is that of people putting aside petty differences to do what's right and needed by our community of man.
This feabile attempt to tell an amazing tale of cross cultural volunteerism features: Vermin Supreme, Dirty Momma, Heather Bee, Pete Jones, Ben Cauldwell, Doc Stone, Organic Valley, the residents of Waveland Mississippi ... and Flower
Fore more info on this case,and the full complaint/lawsuit against officer Gromek : http://www.aclupa.org/henderson
PITTSBURGH - The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania filed a federal lawsuit today on behalf of Dennis Henderson, an African-American teacher who was arrested and jailed for 12 hours after criticizing the speed of a white Pittsburgh police officer driving by. All charges against Henderson were dropped by the district attorney, and the Office of Municipal Investigations (OMI) determined that the police officer had acted improperly.
Henderson, 38, an award-winning social studies teacher at Manchester Academic Charter School, was arrested within minutes of leaving a community meeting in Homewood that included a discussion of ways to improve relations with police.
"I want to show my students that, regardless of your neighborhood, ethnicity, attire, age, or socioeconomic status, no one should be harassed, arrested and placed into the criminal justice system by a police officer who operates under a code of profiling, provoking and arresting individuals without just cause," Henderson said.
Shortly after leaving the June 26, 2013, meeting, Henderson and Rossano Stewart, a freelance photographer for the New Pittsburgh Courier, were standing next to Henderson's car when a Pittsburgh police car sped by them. Both men pressed themselves against Henderson's vehicle to avoid being hit, and Henderson exclaimed, "Wow."
The driver of the car, Officer Jonathan Gromek, made an abrupt U-turn at the corner and pulled up next to Henderson and Stewart and asked, "Do you have a problem?" Henderson expressed concern about Officer Gromek's driving and said he intended to file a complaint about him. Henderson then asked Officer Gromek for his name and badge number.

Tesoro refuses to answer any questions about Tioga Oil Spill
October 13, 2013
Unedited Media heard about the Tioga oil spill just like everyone else–11 days after it happened. .It took eleven days for the biggest inland oil spill to be known to the public.
The spill was eight miles north of Tioga, North Dakota and the media collective hadn’t seen much in the way of photographs or video. Unedited Media journalists decided to travel to Western North Dakota. They traveled along rutted dirt roads grooved by vehicles and flanked by frack wells. The journalists had the general location of the spill but they smelled it before they saw it. The Unedited Media team followed the scent of oil to a wide open field of recently harvested wheat.
With some of the only video from behind police lines, subMedia.tv witnessed the brutal raid by the Royal Colonial Mounted Police on the Mi’kmaq blockade of fracking equipment. But the fierce response of the community in defense of the warriors was also captured on camera. We bring you the real story about what really went down on Highway 134, the story that the corporate media doesn’t want you to see.
Mi’kmaq Warrior Suzanne Patles speaks at the SWN blockade site (background) just two days after a violent raid by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Even though the SWN trucks are gone, supporters keep streaming in from as far west as Vancouver. Suzanne was featured on our video Kahsatstenhsera: Indigenous Resistance to Tar Sands Pipelines
For over two weeks now, a coalition of people including local Mi’kmaq residents, and anglophone and Acadian settlers, have blockaded the road leading to an equipment compound leased to South Western Energy or SWN.
SWN is a Texas based energy company, that has been attempting to conduct natural gas exploration in the area’s shale formations. It is believed that if significant deposits of gas are found, SWN would then employ the controversial extraction method of hydraulic fracturing or fracking. But since this past summer, protests, direct actions and sabotage have thwarted their work, and have turned public opinion on the side of the protesters.
Throughout the summer, police arrested dozens of people conducting non-violent civil disobedience. But since the arrival of members of the Mi’kmaq warrior society, the police have not been as keen to come near protesters.
The blockade is preventing SWN from operating thumper trucks, massive vehicles that gather seismic data to determine the location of natural gas.
During my short stay here I’ve witnessed the co-operation between natives and settlers, a partnership that has kept this blockade fully stocked and operational. Food, wood, hot coffee, tents and other supplies keep streaming all the while SWN berates the police in the media for not arresting the protesters.
In two days time, several people named in a court injuction are due to appear before a judge. In the meantime supporters keep arriving, but the warriors have also issued a callout for further support.
Hey Pittsburgh still wondering who the folks are who are running for Former Councilman Patrick Dowd's Vacated seat?
Here ya go. Sorry for the jesus prayer in the beginning (part of the video)
