America’s Civil War Ramping Up

“After just a few days in office, President Trump is already beginning to implement his racist, anti-immigrant agenda. He’s about to launch a major effort to hunt down and deport millions of undocumented people and asylum seekers in the US. Many went to the US to escape violence, and they could be persecuted or killed if they’re sent back to their countries of origin.”

Liberals imposed gag order on officials over fighter jets –

OTTAWA – More than 200 federal civil servants involved in replacing Canada’s aging fighter jet fleet have been forced to swear they will not discuss the project for the rest of their lives.
Revelations of the “lifetime” non-disclosure agreements come as the government prepares to start negotiations with U.S. aerospace giant Boeing to purchase 18 Super Hornets.

why might a lifetime gag order be a health issue for Canadian officials who are writing and imposing the order?


What is a gag order?

When can you break a gag order?


Whose human rights are being violated here?  The Canadian publics right to have a far and frank discussion with each other about their past and future vision for the world. Everyone has agreed that Canada will have to pay for some of the weapons of mass destruction.

For some reason i am reading this “Conflict Minerals Policy | Ecolab”

“Ecolab will file the necessary documentation prior to the regulation deadlines. We have initiated a process that meets the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) framework to comply with this regulation. This includes establishing compliance requirements for our direct suppliers regarding conflict minerals, implementing controls and reporting, undertaking appropriate sourcing efforts, and providing our customers the data necessary to facilitate their SEC reporting.”

Do i seriously think what the world needs now is a disability film institute network? yes i do.

I think it’s time, for there to be disability film and media studios around the globe. They need to be accessible in all kinds of ways. Open to the public and the pride of disability culture and production.

And there it is, my dreams.

So my dream includes a media stream of the things i am thinking about and the conversations i am part of building. That’s the context of my scholarship and art practice. As a filmmaker i’ve been battling for access to the institutions that teach film. But i’m still on the far outside. Oh well. Back to work. The work i do includes amplifying the reach of actual news and the context of the battle for Standing Rock. News streams that are reporting what is happening come to me via internet and local organizers. But mostly the internet.

Who is being violent and where their funding comes from is a key indicator of the temperature and actual will behind the scenes. If we can look from that side of things and be in the room with the board members talking, then anyone or all of us can and should take those funders to task in different ways. Research is one way. If we have no idea what is compelling the harshness of the push into Standing Rock we can continue to unravel and then understand how vital it is to the survival of people everywhere. Survivors are the canaries in the coal mine. They that live down in the mine till they died of poison, so the workers could be warned to leave the toxic place. Actually i don’t know how the miners actually worked or if any company actually did this to canaries. But i’ve heard about it in stories. So people get the metaphor. Canaries are disposable, biopolitical fodder for an industry that has been very difficult and polluting since inception. So that is not new. And they have been winning at this war for a very long time indeed.
