nation capitals

meowmeowkittymeow  asked:

I'm sorry I'm sending way to mutch 😔. Well my question was how would the nations react to there capital doing weird things randomly. Like randomly did there hair,get a piercing/tatoo,etc? Thank you!~

It’s okay, sending asks is fine, haha. Sorry that I totally forgot this was in my inbox!!

Kuro: What is Tokyo doing, dying their hair hot pink? Kuro would be fine with tattoos, piercings, anything. But Tokyo’s hair is black, and getting their hair dyed to hot pink would mean frying their wonderful hair. They’d have to cut it all off to get it back to it’s normal health.

Luciano: Did Rome get a new haircut? Luci has to admit it looks nice, but getting their ears pierced somehow with their regenerative abilities, Luci would appreciate some warning upfront. But he’s fine with it.

Allen: Damn, those tattoos are fucking awesome. Al is perfectly okay with DC doing whatever the hell they want, as long as they want to.

Oliver: Ollie is a-okay with London’s music choices of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, or whoever the fuck you listen to. But dying their hair black and getting a belly piercing is pushing it. Despite his passive-agressiveness and overall internal fuming, he’ll let it go. For now.

Our elders have been warning us about this for generations now—they saw the unsustainability of settler society immediately. Societies based on conquest cannot be sustained, so yes, I do think we’re getting closer to that breaking point for sure. We’re running out of time. We’re losing the opportunity to turn this thing around. We don’t have time for this massive slow transformation into something that’s sustainable and alternative. I do feel like I’m getting pushed up against the wall. Maybe my ancestors felt that 200 years ago or 400 years ago. But I don’t think it matters. I think that the impetus to act and to change and to transform, for me, exists whether or not this is the end of the world. If a river is threatened, it’s the end of the world for those fish. It’s been the end of the world for somebody all along. And I think the sadness and the trauma of that is reason enough for me to act.

People Shouldn't Buy the Right to Steal Your Land
Native Americans have seen this monster before.

The involvement of the indigenous populations in both the United States and Canada in the opposition to various pipelines, including the Keystone XL, should come as no surprise.

As we have said, the abuse and misuse of the eminent domain process in the construction of the pipeline here has been an effective organizing tool to bring together environmentalists and ranchers to oppose the project. And if it is nothing else, the history of the native peoples on this continent is the greatest example of eminent domain abuse in human history.

They know better than anyone the feeling that greater forces from the outside can overwhelm and threaten long-standing ways of life.

On Tuesday, in a basement ballroom of a downtown hotel, the Ponca, Santee, Omaha, and Winnebago peoples organized a treaty among themselves, and several other tribes, expressing their opposition to the pipeline.

From the start, here and in Canada, the indigenous peoples of the continent have been at the heart of the opposition to projects like this one, most visibly during the extended confrontation over the Dakota Access pipeline. In Nebraska, the alliance between Native Americans and ranchers, particularly over issues of eminent domain, not only was shot through with remarkable historical je ne sais quoi, it was a pragmatic decision based on common interests.

People shouldn’t buy the right to steal your land. The Native people are familiar with this phenomenon and with how angry its victims can become…
