Static Preview

Published on Sep 9, 2016 by Sequence Media Group

In an already tense stand off, a federal judge has denied the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe their request for a temporary restraining order to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, as reported by CNN. The judge reached this decision after claiming the tribe failed to prove that they would quote suffer injury that would be prevented by any injunction the court could issue. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is fighting to prevent the destruction of sacred sites due to the construction of the pipeline which means to run from North Dakota to Illinois through 2 other states. The project is set to cost 3.7 billion dollars and would carry nearly half a million barrels of crude oil a day. Thousands of people from over 200 Native American tribes are in support of the Standing Rock Sioux’s work to preserve their history while around 30 environmental groups have been outspoken with their opposition to the pipeline which draws concerns over environmental disasters especially around the Missouri River.

Published on Sep 12, 2016 by Democracy Now.

While Democracy Now! was covering the Standing Rock standoff earlier this month, we spoke to Winona LaDuke, longtime Native American activist and executive director of the group Honor the Earth. She lives and works on the White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota. She spent years successfully fighting the Sandpiper pipeline, a pipeline similar to Dakota Access. We met her right outside the Red Warrior Camp, where she has set up her tipi. Red Warrior is one of the encampments where thousands of Native Americans representing hundreds of tribes from across the U.S. and Canada are currently resisting the pipeline’s construction.

Static Preview

Published on Sep 9, 2016

North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple has activated the National Guard ahead of today’s ruling on the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s lawsuit against the U.S. government over the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. U.S. District Judge James Boasberg is set to rule today on an injunction in a lawsuit challenging the Army Corps of Engineers’ decision to issue permits for the pipeline, arguing it violates the National Historic Preservation Act. This comes as over 1,000 people representing more than 100 Native American tribes are gathered along the Cannonball River by the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to resist the pipeline’s construction. It’s been described as the largest unification of Native American tribes in decades. We go to North Dakota for an update from Tara Houska, national campaigns director for Honor the Earth.

Sabbath Economics & Community Investing
Static Preview

What is Sabbath Economics?

We are all economic creatures: we all consume, produce, exchange, and interact with the resources of creation within human community. Economic practice is fundamental to our survival and our flourishing. Sabbath Economics operates out of a sense that there is enough for everyone.  Forgiveness of debt is part of living out Sabbath Economics, and is more than just a good idea. It is biblical, just and healing, as we work to narrow the growing divide between the few wealthy and the masses who are poor.

This is clip 1 of 3. Clip 2 is here and clip 3 is here.

Her devotion to her Pacific Islander people and her work with college access and spoken word poetry helps her to drive the development of Pacific Islander youth, advocating for self-empowerment so they can create sustainable impact in their communities, starting with themselves.
