as long as any being lives in fear, hate, exploitation and death at the hands of man so shall all men live under this same threat, don't fool yourself no one is free as long as another is oppressed. withdraw your consent for as long as we agree to the small things we have agreed to the big ones, the pebble seems so small but its effects are far reaching
protect life, prosecute those that seek to destroy our shared home and our fellow beings
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

So many tribal people are now, have been & unfortunately
will continue to be the target of the "Corporate Primitives".
& the International Community of Non-evolved Morons
until all of us out here look to Tribal Peoples for the
lessons we need, the knowledge they possess on what
it means to live in harmony w/ this planet that we are destroying.
Instead, they're being relocated. Just as the Native Americans
were relocated here. And still they live on the Rez. Just as several
of my relatives still do. It is deplorable. I'm disgusted. We've learned
nothing. I'm ashamed for how these people are being treated,
ALL tribal people. What will happen to this planet when we've
destroyed through, starvation, relocation, mass murder, etc..,
the only people left who hold the keys to our survival, the knowledge
we've forgotten & must learn again? They are the only evolved
societies left. These people are the elders of the planet. To harm
them is to harm ourselves. Without them we are lost. I'm amazed
at how blind people are to this. And to anyone who would harm these
people, I hold them responsible for the consequences of what their actions
will be. And I hold myself responsible if I fail them by ever giving up.
What is there left to say, do? We need a Revolution people.

Does this siuation sound familiar?
Doesn't this remind us of the manner in which native Americans were treated?

Ugh, this is horrible. But as long as the rest of the world demands cane sugar and palm oil, this will continue to happen. These ingredients are used in thousands of the food products that Americans buy, so I don't see Ethiopians being free any time soon.
