and World Activists Protest
*********** Protest in
Yemen - Now This Is A "Rumble of the People"
on Apr 22, 2011
Update (April 28,
2011): "In the days since, more demonstrators have been attacked by government forces -- with the death toll now estimated to exceed 130. Witnesses have also been reporting the increased use of military helicopters in the crackdown. Some of those aircraft may be recent additions to Saleh's arsenal, provided courtesy of the Obama administration as part of an $83-million military aviation aid package."

Bozhooo Friends, Sunday night was different on the Mound, the rain was hard at times and the high winds and even thunder and lightning. The fire had good coals so as the rain slowed I added more wood and the fire remained. As morning came I watched the sun rise, prayers continued all night and throughout the day on Monday. I began to hear the asphalt company fire up their equipment , the noise is loud and the dust storm from the materials they used began blowing over to where I stood near the fire. I walked near the edge and became sick.
They brought in more machinery. On the top they cut trees and made room for more gravel . The extra gravel and machinery means more "shoots" to move gravel from top to machinery below. More "shoots " means they had to dig into the mound to place these shoots. Fresh dirt laying in piles below, and this Mound is an artifact. These items are not just what people think of as some arrow heads washing up from the rain. They are precious funerary objects. There are many times when I hear the term "genocide" used. Let's face it, they killed the elders, the women, the children .
They killed the warriors, then burned the villages , the crops, the stored foods. They took the land, eliminated the game, placed the remainder of the people on the worst land they knew and called it reservations. They then took the children who remained and placed them in their schools to civilize them . Cut their hair, would not allow them to speak the language or sing their sacred songs. So no religion. I ask you from 150 million people to
10,000, and the only thing left .....the areas of burial of the Grandfathers, the Ancestors , and they slowly destroy them. Is this not Genocide ?????????????????
I am the founder, Chairman of the Board and Vice President of the Mound Society of Western Pennsylvania. I put together a great board with an archaeologist who is the number one in the country on Native Mounds, doctors, professors, priests, mede's , top researchers. This Mound is one forth mile in length and one
eight mile wide. It is related to Meadowcroft. Meadowcroft is 35,000 years old. This Mound has the oldest known remains on the
continent. Over 5000 years old. That was only from the top layer. I beg you to help, please send this message to all of your friends, I need to begin
petitions. would anyone be interested in helping me with this fight? Eugene
