November 16, 2011 – Occupy Raid – Gravel – Building 7 weekend

“The evidence in hand points to the urgent need
for a citizens’ investigation with grand jury powers.”

Editor’s Notes: Mike Gravel’s interview with Max Keiser describes an opportunity for direct democracy that can come out of the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Other new links posted at Flyby News and facebook include information on the police raids, likely ordered from the top down, and on the vitally important march and occupation this coming weekend – Occupy Building 7 and more..

AMY GOODMAN:

“..The one thing I was able to pick up from the grounds of Zuccotti Park was a book that had not yet been thrown into the dump truck, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World Revisited. On the back, it says, “When the novel Brave New World” – now an established classic – “first appeared, in 1932, its shocking analysis of a scientific dictatorship seemed a projection into the remote future.” It goes on to say, “However, today the science of thought control has raced far beyond the totalitarian dreams of Hitler and Stalin. Numerous methods for curtailing individual freedoms have been developed, and the pressures to adopt them are increasingly powerful. Here, in one of the most important, fascinating and frightening books of his career, Aldous Huxley scrutinizes these and other threats to humanity and explains why we may find it virtually impossible to resist them. This book is a plea that humanity should educate itself for freedom before it is too late.” Just reading the jacket off of Brave New World Revisited by Aldous Huxley, that was strewn at Zuccotti Park, just missed by the sanitation workers dumping the property of the protesters..”

A Message from Senator Mike Gravel
to the Occupy Wall Street Movement




Warrior of the Wind

As an Indian child I wept and cried
To feel the hatred, the reason my father died;
I dried my tears as I grew older
And with my bow became bolder..

To protect my mother of this world and of nature,
As buffaloes were slaughtered and the Indian hungered;
The fish gave us strength to survive,
Yet we knew we had to do more to remain alive.

As we struggled the White men kept coming,
Building towns and railroads with sticks
that kept exploding..
Chasing us to grounds that were barren,
Our most sacred lands by strangers were taken.

Some of the younger braves, angered by these maneuvers,
No longer respected the way of peace elder and became warriors.
They hid and ambushed and the numbers of our people grew small,
My family became mourners, it was then I heard a call..

I went to my place beside a flowing brook.
Here it was peaceful and as I sat the water spoke:
“Young brave, warrior of the wind..
Let go and carry the message within.”

There was no need to fear at this place,
But as I opened my heart I felt it shake.
I leaned toward the water, but did not fall,
I flew through the woods to the source of the call.

Here I saw buffalo and the warriors of old,
They sat in a council of peace and here I was told:
“Young brave, true warrior, the fighting is not free,
But you must complete the lessons that will let you see.”

I came back to the brook and felt good,
But was confused as to what I should do.
Then I smelt fire and heard thunder from guns..
Back to my four legged and back to my home.

My mother lay there, with a young one in the ashes of ruin.
My tears bitterly dried by the heat of my village burning.
All friends, women, children lay in darkness..
My confusion and not knowing became like a sickness.

Nothing I could see but anger and scalping.
I rode my pony feverishly attacking.
With others I yelped, burned, and killed
until peace was lost,
I could not return to my place over that hill.

But late one night before sleep a spirit said,
Look above, way above your head
And like at the stream I went with the wind..

Yet sleep overcame my spirit,
In the morning I didn’t remember.
I hopped on Sacred Fire and rode as a warrior.
Charging in a cloud of dust,
my throat struck by a bullet,
Breathing became difficult, I fell
And rolled and rolled; still not breathing I looked up.
Hoofs ran wild, but way, way above my head
I saw clouds opening instead.

I rose to the land of buffalo and friend
And understood why we all had to ascend.
The land we left needs to serve another,
Though the Whites hardly respect the Earth Mother.

They’ll cut the trees, drain the soil, sicken the water,
Their destructive forces will come like a wind of fire.
Yet a cleansing will come to purify all the spreading diseases,
And HO, nature will replenish the Earth with changes.

For peace will be for all kinds of tribes
And for those with the strength to remain alive,
Without tears of rage nor loss of dignity,
But for those that have or will see
Earth and her children living in complete harmony.

About flybynews

Flyby News (FN) came out of the campaign to stop or expose the high risk NASA Cassini (plutonium) Earth flyby. FN's first campaign at the turn of the millennium was to prevent the expansion of the arms race and US domination of the planet with space-based weapons. Yet the theft of democracy in the US 2000 election, the Supreme Court appointment of George W. Bush as US President, and the events of September 11, 2001, led to the termination of the 1972 Ballistic Missile Treaty, along with many other actions of crimes against humanity and civil freedom. The exploitation and cover-up of September 11, 2001 led to illegal, deceptive wars, which has accelerated climate change, and the downfall of financial and social justice. Flyby News is educational and nonviolent in focus, and has supported critical campaigns for a healthy environment, human rights, justice, peace, and nonviolence, since the launching of NASA's Cassini space probe in 1997.
