As it seems today.....the LIKE IT OR LUMP IT concept is still alive and not as well as it was a few years ago.
This example, preceded by the Gulf Oil Spil and all the toxic influence by the dispersements is now showing up in the health of the Louiiana folks near all that mess. Everyone should demand a complete SAFETY and INSURANCE bond that respects the LIFEFORMS on this planet in all cases. Good for the natives!

This material should be de-enriched. Case solved. This material should not be used to destroy reservations and other people of color and various other minorities, and their neighbors.

Kudos to the Mohawks! Great that they have taken a stand! I fear there will soon be a time when the little people of the earth are going to have to take a stand to override powerful 'big business', in order to prevent our planet's destruction. We are on a downhill trend to environmental catastrophe and our Governments don't seem to be concerned.

Thanks for this article. The Native Americans have always gotten the short end of the stick and have not had good luck when it comes to individudals and buesses keeping promises they make/made to them. I stand with the Native Americans!!!

THEY HAVE DECIDED TO TAKE ACTION WHEREAS MANY CANADIANS HAVE JUST VOICED OPPOSITION! KUDOS TO THE NATIVE COMMUNITIES FOR JOINING FORCES AND TAKING A STAND!

Re: Asian On-Line-Sellers.
Asian consumerism is killing and choking the planet with its non-lasting junk. Products from China and other Asian countries are cheap due to lack of quality (product & craftsmanship). The products break down quickly, thus more products are “needed”. Landfills, not only in their country but also in the West grow alarmingly and are part of the downfall of the environment. Asian products are known to contain harmful chemicals and are permitted in the West due to “international” agreements between their and our government in view to support the economy overpopulated countries.
The continuous input (into the Earth) of harmful chemicals damage and pollute drinking water and all global waterways. Did you know that China’s drinking water is one of the most polluted water in the world? The West has enough to deal with their own pollutions and we don’t need any more in “help” from foreign countries.
Furthermore, buying from such sites you support violations of Western Copy and Patent Rights. China and alike are lazy and continue to steals ideas and designs from the West. International Copy/Patent Rights mean zero. Fight such cost millions and ends in a no-win situation.
Buyers know Identify theft is mushrooming. PayPal is only secure to a certain degree, once your name and address is in foreign hands you and your family are free game; your info will be re-sold repeatedly.

Support your local economy, your friends and neighbours!
P.S. Care 2 member warned that it is difficult to escape these sites, you MUST respond.
Care 2 members: to fight this Asian invasion on-line selling, flag as inappropriate & write your comment; it will go to Customer Service of Care 2. This is a site for people who care about the world not adding more junk to landfills.

Anja N: I turned in Lili L as a sale site. I too get tired of their misuse of this site.

Good to hear the Mohawk Nation has made a stand against this abuse against Mother Earth and her occupants.
