Standing Rock 2016

Standing Rock 2016

 

victory and defeat

quicken the heartbeat

a river a rainfall snow-ball 

flakes on the outside 

inside center side

again and again

the beauty of life

may hunger flow no more

nor alone – ness remain

 

passing sighs

empty eyes 

little boy blue

anxious little girl too

so much more ’round

the corner higher up

the shelf of hope full filled

dreams do come through

 

Wolf Spirit love song

ar – ar – a- wooooh

hoooo hoooo     a-ho

grandfather I have returned

it’s in my blood

mountain-scape

corn pollen

wild Picietl

sweet grass

cedar brew

 

Copal Insence smoke rising

to know where you are going

you must know where you been

if there are no more elders

speak to the circle search

the wind amoung the trees

jumping fish in the stream

eagle flight above the thin air 

spring painted earth plants

search the warm colorful glow

 

2.

NPR Weekend Edition Rendition

 

sat last Saturday near the outside window

scatting the day away through the past

unwritten downbeat historical hysterical

down beat drum protecting absorbing the

green as green can be morning forest floor

 

red gold morning sunlight the Earth Whispers

the Nagual Spirit ever present Shape Shifter

travels foot-loose one Indian tamale clings

to hungry mouth thick as the tone of heart beat

hip to the max do not be afraid sing it loudly!

 

hot shots

mi gente

stoke the coals

fight the power that be

The Homeless Memoirs

 

black Crow spirit overhead

every morning in springtime

unexpected confirmation

without fail a sharp grisly call

mid-air response I shout

Crow!  Crow! how be thou

this early warm free day?

 

“caw-dacious!

 good morning!

 I cannot stop I chase

 eternity in the sunrise

 just beyond the hill!”

 

I wave at his passing shadow

across the forest floor I too

search my rose crowned dawn

with human eyes that have seen so much,

through dark penetration of Crow eyes

in the heart shaped gaze 

silent now

 

my childhood friends

you been conned again

               hood winked

               bam-boozled 

by jive turkey-neck fools…. 

                               (Malcolm X)

injunuity

Idle No More

Inauguration Day Walk Out: Dump Trump and All Racist Politicans

Inauguration Day Walk Out: Dump Trump and All Racist Politicians

Since early 2016, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) has been at the forefront of protests to stop Trump. Chapters and affiliates led protests from coast to coast, even helping to completely shut down his speaking event in Chicago. We also attended and spoke at the March on the Republican National Convention this summer in Cleveland, Ohio. From the beginning, SDS has said that Trump’s agenda of bigotry, misogyny, anti-immigrant, and Islamophobic attacks should not go unopposed.

Upon his election win, Clinton officially remarked that “We owe Trump an open mind”. Clinton, the rich politicians, and corporate media pundits who told us that Trump could be defeated at the ballot box have offered no real solutions for how to stop his policy measures.

We call upon students and all people to channel their anger into organizing, so we can defend our communities, and build sustainable movements independent of the political establishment that provides both Trump and Hillary as viable candidates.

On Inauguration Day, Jan 20th, SDS will hold a national student walkout, in alliance with many other student groups. We will disrupt operations on campuses everywhere.

We demand free tuition and equal access to education for Black, Chicano, Latino and specifically undocumented students. We demand sanctuary campuses everywhere, the preservation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and an end to deportations.

Stop Trump!
Sanctuary for All!
Legalization For All!
Education for All!
