Warrior Culture : Yezidi

The Yezidi people have been a great friend to the American people and to US troops during our time in Iraq. My own life was saved by one of our Yezidi terps. It is a great tragedy and disservice to them that we have allowed this to happen to them. And that it has gone so long unanswered.

Another problem is the nature of mass graves. If one body has been moved from a mass grave to another, that means the integrity of the body is damaged. So you might find a femur in one grave, they match the DNA, and call the family. They identify the person and bury the bone. Six months later, investigators open another mass grave, and they find a toe from the same body. By law, they have to go through the same procedure again, calling the family, matching the DNA, the family comes in, signs the documents. Then they must decide whether to include it in the grave, which would mean reopening it. That can happen a number of times. It becomes very complex, expensive and incredibly painful for survivors.

That’s another reason these items remain stored for a long time. They never know when they will have to reopen the case—it never goes cold.

Hello, I would like to make a request you to know about the The Khojaly massacre, also known as the Khojaly tragedy, was the killing of at least 613 ethnic Azerbaijani civilians from the town of Khojaly on 25–26 February 1992 by the Armenian and, partially, by CIS armed forces during the Nagorno-Karabakh War. It was the largest and most brutal bloodshed during the Karabakh war. During and after assault there were wounded, killed and lost hundreds of civilians. Khojaly tragedy - 613 lives and 23 years! Became less doctors could grow out of the dead children; fewer teachers who could educate a generation; fewer lawyers who could defend our rights; fewer souls, less humanity and just more indifference. If you want to join a global company and bring your condolences you may share this photo.

Qarabağ deyəndə ağlıma ancaq Xocalı soyqırımı gəlir. Indi ise Xocalı soyqırımından nə az ,nə də ki çox düz 23 il keçdi. Orda öldürülən soydaşlarımın acısını onlarınkı qədər çəkə bilməsəmdə ,onların başlarına gelenleri dusununde ağlım başımdan çıxır. Kaş belə bir qetliam olmazdı. Olan ancaq orda olanlara oldu. Qanları yerdə qaldı. Azərbaycanda insan olmaq çətindir hele de ki, qaçqın olmaq lap çətin. Bir şey ki insanların “kaş bir milyon qaçqin olacağina hamsi ölərdi” sozunu eşidəndə öz torpağımda qaçqın olmağıma və burdakı insanlara nifrət edirəm.

New Genocide in Ukraine!

Western money and politics backed the Neo-Nazi’s taking power away from the democratically elected government of Ukraine. 

Now even amnesty international have blood on their hands. 

The Neo-Nazi’s seem to have started a new Genocide in Ukraine.

And why is no one talking about it?

I know we are in this group.

National Day of Mourning Reflects on Thanksgiving’s Horrific, Bloody History

By Matt Juul, Boston.com

While families across the country indulge on their Thanksgiving Day feasts, hundreds will gather at Cole’s Hill in Plymouth on Thursday to commemorate a different tradition: the National Day of Mourning.

The event, held annually on Thanksgiving, is meant to honor Native American ancestors who died due to the European invasion, and to expose the bloody history behind the November holiday.

Now in its 45th year, the National Day of Mourning’s organizers hope to shine a light on modern issues facing Native Americans today, as well as to bring more awareness to the real, horrific story behind Thanksgiving.

“I think there seems to be this myth in this country propagated about Thanksgiving that, ‘Oh, you know, the Pilgrims and the Indians all sat down to have a meal together and they were good friends and everybody lived happily ever after,” says Mahtowin Munro, co-leader of the United American Indians of New England, which organizes the annual event. “It’s really important for us to stand up and talk about what the reality was and to teach others about that reality.”

During the “lynching period” of 1882-1968 roughly 3446 black people were lynched (on record). of 86 years this averages out to about one extrajudicial killing every eight days. It is estimated that a cop kills a black person every 28 hours (313 dead in 2012, nearly ONE TENTH of the ENTIRE recorded death toll of EIGHTY YEARS). It’s almost as if the government started subsidizing it and giving lynch mobs matching blue uniforms.

Around 500,000 West Papuans have already been killed in the brutal genocide and illegal occupation of their country by the Republic of Indonesia.

In West Papua, foreign journalists are banned, human rights groups are banned and even the raising of the West Papuan national flag is banned and punishable by 15 years in jail.

“‘It’s ridiculous. This name has always existed,’ [Courtemaux deputy mayor] Marie-Elizabeth Secretand said. ‘No one has anything against the Jews, of course. It doesn’t surprise me that this is coming up again.’

Changing the name would require a decision by the municipal council, which Secretand said was unlikely. ‘Why change a name that goes back to the Middle Ages or even further? We should respect these old names.

'A previous municipal council, at least 20 years ago, already refused to change the name of this hamlet, which consists of a farm and two houses.'

In May, residents of a village in Spain called Castrillo Matajudios (Castrillo Kill Jews), voted to change the name.

In a tight referendum, the citizens opted for the less offensive, older name for the town, Castrillo Mota de Judios (Castrillo Hill of the Jews).”

Thanksgiving to me has never been about Pilgrims. When I was six, my mother, a woman of the Dineh nation, told my sister and me not to sing “Land of the Pilgrim’s pride” in “America the Beautiful.” Our people, she said, had been here much longer and taken much better care of the land. We were to sing “Land of the Indian’s pride” instead.

I was proud to sing the new lyrics in school, but I sang softly. It was enough for me to know the difference. At six, I felt I had learned something very important. As a child of a Native American family, you are part of a very select group of survivors, and I learned that my family possessed some “inside” knowledge of what really happened when those poor, tired masses came to our homes.

When the Pilgrims came to Plymouth Rock, they were poor and hungry — half of them died within a few months from disease and hunger. When Squanto, a Wampanoag man, found them, they were in a pitiful state. He spoke English, having traveled to Europe, and took pity on them. Their English crops had failed. The native people fed them through the winter and taught them how to grow their food.

These were not merely “friendly Indians.” They had already experienced European slave traders raiding their villages for a hundred years or so, and they were wary — but it was their way to give freely to those who had nothing. Among many of our peoples, showing that you can give without holding back is the way to earn respect. Among the Dakota, my father’s people, they say, when asked to give, “Are we not Dakota and alive?” It was believed that by giving there would be enough for all — the exact opposite of the system we live in now, which is based on selling, not giving.

Aboriginal rights protest disrupts Australia Day Parade in Melbourne

Hundreds of people marching for Aboriginal rights have disrupted official Australia Day celebrations in the Melbourne CBD.

The group – holding Aboriginal flags and chanting “always was, always will be Aboriginal land” – followed the parade down Swanston Street, flanked by police.

The rally that followed was lead by two organisations: Warriors of Aboriginal Resistance and First Nations Liberation.

Organiser Meriki Onus, 27, said the group had earlier gathered at the steps of parliament house to lay flowers in commemoration of Aboriginal people who were killed during white settlement, the Stolen Generation and Aboriginal deaths in custody.

She said January 26 was a day of mourning for Aboriginal people.

"We don’t celebrate Australia Day, because Australia Day celebrates genocide," Ms Onus said.

"Today is Invasion Day for Aboriginal people."

As the vocal group marched from Parliament to town hall and on to Birrarung Marr, people chanted “No pride in genocide” and “Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.”

Placards carried in the procession included “End the NT intervention” and “Stop deaths in custody”.

The rally came to a brief halt at the intersection of St Kilda Road and Flinders Street as members of the crowd burned gum leaves.

Ms Onus said the turnout for the rally was far greater than she had expected.

Djuran Bunjileenee, from First Nations Liberation, said it was important for the wider community to remember the events of January 26.

"Australia Day is the day our land was physically occupied by invaders," Mr Bunjileenee said.

Wounded Knee Massacre 124 years ago: We remember those lost
December 29, 2014

One hundred and twenty-four winters ago, on December 29, 1890, some 150 Lakota men, women and children were massacred by the US 7th Calvary Regiment near Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Some estimate the actual number closer to 300.

Snowfall was heavy that December week. The Lakota ancestors killed that day were left in brutal frigid wintry plains of the reservation before a burial party came to bury them in one mass grave. The photograph of Big Foot’s frozen and contorted body is a symbol for all American Indians of what happened to our ancestors.

Some of those who survived were eventually taken to the Episcopal mission in Pine Ridge. Eventually, some of them were able to give an oral history of what happened. One poignant fact of the massacre has remained in my mind since first reading it, and every time I think about Wounded Knee, I remember this:

“IT WAS THE FOURTH DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1890. WHEN THE FIRST TORN AND BLEEDING BODIES WERE CARRIED INTO THE CANDLELIT CHURCH, THOSE WHO WERE CONSCIOUS COULD SEE CHRISTMAS GREENERY HANGING FROM THE OPEN RAFTERS. ACROSS THE CHANCEL FRONT ABOVE THE PULPIT WAS STRUNG A CRUDELY LETTERED BANNER: “PEACE ON EARTH, GOOD WILL TO MEN,”

writes Dee Brown in “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.”

There was no peace on earth for the Lakota four days after Christmas.

Later, as absurd as it may sound, some 20 US Calvary soldiers were given the Medal of Honor – for killing innocent Lakota men, women and children. What an insult to those who lost their lives. What an insult to humanity.

The Wounded Knee Massacre is a symbol for all American Indians of what happened to our ancestors.

History records the Wounded Knee Massacre was the last battle of the American Indian war. Unfortunately, it is when most American history books drop American Indians from history, as well. As if we no longer exist.

Fortunately, American Indians have survived – one generation after another – since Wounded Knee. It is for us who remain to remember our ancestors as we make for a better life for those we encounter today. We are also taught to prepare for the next seven generations, but as we do, we must remember our ancestors.

We remember those ancestors lost on December 29 — 124 winters ago.

the Holocaust was about ethnic cleansing and sexual violence and torture and the degradation and murder of millions and millions of my people, if you in any way interpret it as a white on white genocide (which you would only do to devalue what our deaths meant and continue to mean) you literally do not have any understanding of it, and i’m gonna presume that your violent ignorance is willful
