A result of ferocious/tenacious maintenance of their human rights, values, life, equality, dignity … land where they lived for thousands of years before Colonialism, was Canada’s Tsilhqot’in Nation Rights and Title decision in June, 2014.
Wounds caused by centuries of Imperialism, Colonialism cannot be healed crafted with a Liberal “letter of understanding (Weekend Advisor, Sept. 12). How will this Liberal public consumptive show for support, work “together” with Tsilhqot’ins?
Racing for the top results in societal inequality: oligarchic, plutocratic, aristocratic dominance/submission/poverty contradicting evolutionary democratic social, political, economic equality.
As it is absolutely for general society, structural inequality and systematic inequities remain worse for Aboriginals.
Marilyn Baptiste reiterates a Tsilhqot’in fundamental principal (Sept. 12 Weekend Advisor), “…protection of their pristine lands and air will always come before development.”
Dominant superiors “develop” without social/environmental limits for privatization/profit/power.
Paramount protection of resources: air, water, land for this generation..for all future generations are basic human rights for all humanity. Oligarchic, plutocratic, aristocratic dominance undermines these basic/fundamental human rights.
Scientific evidence is clear, opinions otherwise are pure/plain ignorance. We need to protect air … the global climate … braking global warming, for every living species, including humans, for our survival.
For maximized unequal distribution of profit/income/wealth, “liberal” uneconomic/destructive growth is clearly the Conservative/Liberal unsustainable agenda/goal.
Evolving democracy, sustainable sharing of earth’s resources, supports universal equal human rights.
Threatening all are global consumptive GHG emissions freely “dumped” into common air, promoted by powerful/unaccountable/unequal wealth seeking fossil-fuel industries…Conservative/Liberal supported.
An “iron clad” global agreement in Paris, 2015 is the goal of the global climate summit, sufficiently reining in global consumption of fossil-fuel energy beginning in 2020.
Tsilhqot’in’s provide the rest of humanity in Canada, a working example … a democratic non-violent, non-abusive, non-neglectful path forward toward respectfully protecting life’s resources with ferocious/tenacious maintenance for love for family, for community, for natural resources we all rely on to survive for future generations.
