This audio interview between NACLA and the Center for Biological Diversity looks at the myraid environmental and Native American heritage laws that the Department of Homeland Security waived in 2008 to construct 470 miles of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. While environmental groups and Native Americans say that waiving these laws to create these walls have done tremendous damage to ecological and human communities along the border, this law-waiving-fervor has gone in vogue in some sectors in Washington, all in the name of "securing our borders."

In his Inaugural address, Barrack Obama gave homage to those who "Settled the West" saying they did it "for us." SETTLED THE WEST??? These words glorify those who used bloodshed and terror to force Native American people off the land so it would be open to settlement!

Those who "settled the West" ought to be remembered in the same light as those Israeli settlers who build new settlements in the West Bank of Occcupied Palestine!

United American Indians of New England gathered at Cole's Hill in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and marched with about 150 of their supporters through the streets of Plymouth on Thanksgiving afternoon. They were not there to celebrate the myth of what is taught about the Pilgrims arriving here almost 400 years ago, but rather they want the truth of that time to be told, Native American heritage recognized, and they called for political prisoner, Leonard Peltier to be released. The Wampanoag were the first natives to greet Pilgrims.
