Static Preview

Published on Oct 17, 2016

Soaring Arctic temperatures have led to an outbreak of anthrax in the Yamal peninsula, Russia, triggered by unusually warm weather and the thawing of permafrost that once covered contaminated cemeteries and animal burial grounds. A Greenpeace Russia team visited the region to investigate the impact of climate change on the environment and indigenous life.

The Daily life of Nenets Indigenous women in the Siberian Arctic
Static Preview

Published on Oct 17, 2016

The Nenets people are nomadic reindeer herders in North-West Siberia. They heavily depend on their herds for food, clothes, transport and shelter and have migrated for over 1000 years across their ancestral homelands. Currently the entire region and its inhabitants are under serious threat from climate change as temperatures are on a steep rise and Russia’s ancient permafrost is melting.

Siberia stretches southwards from the Arctic Ocean to the hills of north-central Kazakhstan and to the national borders of Mongolia and China. With an area of 13.1 million square kilometres, Siberia accounts for 77% of Russia's land area, but it is home to just 40 million people – 27% of the country's population.

RISE With Standing Rock
Static Preview

ublished on Oct 10, 2016

There's a revolution happening in Standing Rock, at the O?héthi Šakówi? camp, and across the country. Over 200 indigenous American nations and 6,000 people have travelled to the community in an unprecedented act of solidarity. Catalyzed by the fight against Dakota Access Pipeline, Native American tribes are protecting their water, but even more, protecting their sovereignty in the face of a colonialist State. In a time when we still celebrate Christopher Columbus, violent colonizer, the indigenous rights movement is more important than ever.

On Indigenous People's Day 2016, we're #StandingWithStandingRock. Journalist Jonathan Klett connects what's happening in North Dakota to what's happening in D.C. Chase Iron Eyes, US Representative Candidate for North Dakota and Judith LeBlanc, director of the Native organizers Alliance, speak to what's at stake in this fight.

According to Chang, hope isn’t yet lost and really, we’re going to be alright -- if we work together.

Part I: A Special Report From #StandingRock
Static Preview

Published on Sep 27, 2016, Laura Flanders Show Channel

Part 1 of our field reports from the Seven Council Fires Community, at #StandingRock in Cannonball, North Dakota. Representatives from over 200 nations have travelled to #StandingRock to defend their right to clean water, and more, to preserve their sovereignty against a state that has illegally decided to take this land. They are protectors, not protesters. Their historic effort is bringing attention to a long struggle against environmental racism, indiscriminate raids, and genocidal erasure. 

We follow the story and the story of how these communities, Standing Rock Camp and Red Warrior Camp, have come to be entirely sustainable.

Featured in this documentary are a group of indigenous leaders working with the community: Kandi Mossett of the Indigenous Environmental Network (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara – North Dakota); Phyllis Young - former councilwoman for O?héthi Šakówin (Lakotah, Woman Who Stands By The Water), Cody Hall, media spokesperson for Red Warrior Camp (Sioux), Michelle Cook - Legal Counsel for O?héthi Šakówi? camp (Diné - The One Who Walks Around You Clan), and Terrell Iron Shell of the International Indigenous Youth Council (Oglala Lakotah, Eastern Band Cherokee). 

“We’ve been here. We know how to take care of the land. Just listen to us.”

End Amazon Crude!
Static Preview

Published on Sep 28, 2016

Destroying the Rainforest, devastating the climate, deadly for indigenous peoples. Join the movement athttp://amazonwatch.org/endamazoncrude.

When most people think of where we get our oil, they primarily think of the Middle East. The tar sands of northern Canada or domestic fracking also come to mind. But drilling for oil in the Amazon? Not likely. Surprisingly oil extraction in the Amazon is rampant, and expanding. And it’s the worst possible place to be drilling. But who’s consuming the oil produced there? We are. Amazon crude is coming to California and the rest of the United States in record levels.

Amazonian peoples, many of whom consider oil to be the blood of Mother Earth, have long called on governments and corporations to keep it in the ground. Now scientists are catching up with their calls, stating that we need to keep 80% of fossil fuels in the ground in order to have a good chance of averting catastrophic climate change. As our planet’s most important carbon sink, the home to over 400 distinct indigenous peoples, and the world’s most biodiverse rainforest, it is urgent that we keep the oil in the ground in the Amazon. 

Amazon Watch is committed to supporting and amplifying the calls and proposals of our indigenous allies from the Amazon by ensuring that global governments and corporations respect their rights and territories. Based on the findings in our report FROM WELL TO WHEEL THE SOCIAL, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND CLIMATE COSTS OF AMAZON CRUDE, we call upon companies, universities, and governments to heed their call and change their vehicle fleets to Amazon-free fuel sources. By keeping the oil in the ground in the Amazon, we can contribute to the protection of the Amazon rainforest, indigenous peoples territories, and our global climate.

Federal Judge denies Temporary Restraining Order (news reports)
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.
