text Volunteering report (May 1st) Will K. 2010-05-01 7:09 PM
Still Looking for a clear path: Day and a half later I have a call back from from the government/BP hotline. They called back to correct the spelling of my name. No questions about my availability, location, ability to travel. I asked if they were putting people in the field yet, they dodged the first time, said yes the second, and then were unable to say where. This is the number, get on the list anyway: Oil Report Line/Volunteer Line – (866)-448-5816 I think we are all biting at the bit trying to figure out a way to help, and one of the sad truths for our wetlands is they aren't like a beach were you can run out and try and help. Protecting the wetlands takes time, planning, dedication, and legislation. So, how to help remains the question of the day. The organizations in alabama and Mississippi seem to be doing the best work so far. They are cleaning beaches, blocking inflow points for critical areas, they seem to be providing outlets for volunteers readily. For Louisiana wetlands I expect volunteer opportunities to open up in the next couple days as the horror unfolds, but until then the Bayous and Wetlands Hold us at bay from our hearts dream of helping to protect them from oil, just as they hold the storms back from our cities. A barrier hard passed. Here are some list of resources: (text/plain + 3 comments)

No Need to Drill, Spill, or Kill--A Clean Commute is Possible!
What are we waiting for? Louisiana cannot expect to survive, playing the Oil and Gas industries' game. New Orleans is flat and compact and perfect for cycling. We have the potential to be a wonderful city for a clean energy future. We must take the lead if we expect the rest of the country and the world to support our continued existence on the slow-motion Mudslide we call home. Please join us in a Ride for our Lives! 28th May 2010, 6pm Jackson Square, or in your own town! (image/jpeg + 1 comment)

text Et in Arcadia, Oil! Darwin BondGraham 2010-05-01 4:57 PM
The Cajun "paradise" lost in southern Louisiana. The entire Gulf Coast wetlands ecosystem is a delicate and profound balance of tides, winds, and ocean temperatures. It's almost cosmic. Tides push and pull vast and deep columns of water through narrow passes into lakes and bays and back out to the open ocean. This is a marine cardiovascular system on a continental scale, one supporting waters that roil with life. Winds move shallow layers of salt water toward the shore and push back with undercurrents of brackish and freshwater from lakes like Pontchartrain, Borgne, and Salvador. The coastal prairies and cypress swamps breath. Water temperatures and salt concentrations from the edge of the continental shelf and as close as the shallows of Chandeleur Sound and Barataria Bay trigger complex movements of sea life, telling them when to spawn and where to feed. Larger seasonal shifts provide signals to migratory birds, ushering them to land upon horizon-to-horizon beds of grass where they feed from the bounty all around. (text/html + 2 comments)

U.S., French, & UK Imperialist Hands off Niger!
In Niger human rights organizations, trade unions, and opposition parties (including the Niger Party for Democracy and Socialism) are all supporting the coup. 10,000 people rallied in support on February 20th. Meanwhile the US, France, UK, UN, and African Union all have been quick to condemn the coup. Tandja did the bidding of U.S. imperialism. Meanwhile, according to the UN Development Program’s 2006 Human Development Index, Niger is the poorest country in the world. Sixty percent of the population lives on less than a dollar a day, life expectancy is only to 45-years old, and adult illiteracy is 71%. (image/jpeg + 1 comment)

BACKGROUND: SELLING OUT AMERICA: North American SuperCorridor Coalition and more... In this Memorandum of Understanding, it mentions the NAITCP and it's annual 'Summit of Mayors'. So my next search term was 'Summit of Mayors' and this is where things really start to get interesting. We find out that Mayors are now engaged in foreign policy and they are being engaged to implement the communist agenda of the United Nations - initially on regionalization, but moving on the UN initiative on the elimination of guns.
