On April 22nd, a group of ranchers, farmers and tribal communities from along the #KeystoneXL #tar-sands #pipeline route, called the #CowboyIndianAlliance, will ride into Washington DC and set up camp near the White House to tell President Obama to reject the pipeline.

On April 26th, thousands of people will join them to stand together for a final message that the Keystone XL pipeline and the tar sands must be rejected — to protect this, and future generations.

Do you know what is happening in Mexico? CENSORSHIP! Attack on the freedom of speech! Let’s avoid another case like that of Venezuela, reblog, reblog, reblog! The word must get out.

¿Qué podría pasar? #EPNvsInternet

  • Según el artículo 189 de la iniciativa: “los concesionarios de telecomunicaciones y, en su caso los autorizados están obligados a proporcionar la localización geográfica en tiempo real, de cualquier tipo de dispositivo de comunicación a solicitud de los titulares de las instancias de seguridad o de los servidores públicos en quienes se delegue esta facultad”
  • Además, según el 197 las compañías que presten servicios de comunicación deberán: “Bloquear, inhibir o anular de manera temporal las señales de telecomunicaciones en eventos y lugares críticos para la seguridad pública y nacional a solicitud de las autoridades competentes”.
  • En otras palabras, cada vez que algún elemento de la PGR crea que tus acciones, comentarios, intereses y conocidos en Internet sean peligrosos (para alguien… de alguna forma) podrá apagar tu servicio de Internet o el de una zona entera. Adiós cobertura en vivo en manifestaciones, adiós movimientos incipientes en Twitter a través de un hashtag, adiós a medios, blogs y comunidades de todos los colores y sabores no alineados al gobierno.
  • Por si esto fuera poco, las compañías proveedoras de Internet tendrán la obligación de guardar una lista detallada de tus gustos y hábitos, lista que deberán dar a las autoridades siempre que así lo quieran y para lo que quieran.
  • Además la Secretaría de Gobernación podrá censurar contenidos de televisión e Internet y suspenderá todo lo que no le parezca.
  • En pocas palabras, esta ley terminará con tu derecho de expresión, privacidad, seguridad y servicio barato en el espacio de comunicación más importante del mundo.

BREAKING: Our two-time tree-sitter Jessica “Felix” Clark was just taken to jail after pleading guilty to criminal charges. Today, Jessica had the choice between two plea deals: 1 year of probation or 26 days in jail. Jessica chose to accept jail time in order to avoid a lengthy probationary period and to highlight the injustice of tar sands industry, while standing in solidarity with political prisoners across the globe.To support Jessica, you can send mail and books (from a publisher) to the LaPorte County Jail!Jessica Clark809 State Suite 201ALa Porte IN, 46350See this page for more mail guidelines: http://www.laportecountysheriff.com/jail/Incoming%20Mail%20Acceptance%20and%20Inspection.pdfRead more of Jessica’s statement to the court below:http://www.michigancats.org/breaking-tree-sitter-to-spend-26-days-in-jail-for-enbridge-protest/#.U06X5ty0Zg0

… Both tree-sits were in opposition to Enbridge’s expansion activities on the same pipeline which bursted in July 2010, causing what is now regarded as the largest inland tar sands spill in US history. The disaster led to 900 thousand gallons of diluted bitumen spilling into Talmadge Creek and eventually into over 40 miles of the Kalamazoo River. To date, the spill has not been cleaned up, and Enbridge continues to prioritize the pipeline’s expansion over cleaning up the disastrous mess the pipeline left behind.

The group said it hopes drone operators see the picture and think twice about an airstrike.
