Russell Means in my Heart !!!!!

November 10, 1939 - October 22, 2012

Mother Earth has been abused, the powers have been abused, and this cannot go on forever. No theory can alter that simple fact. Mother Earth will retaliate, the whole environment will retaliate, and the abusers will be eliminated. Things come full circle, back to where they started.
That's revolution.
- Russell Means -

I love you, Russell !!!! for Always !!!!!

peace prize ??? Shame !!!!!

Why Europe Did Not Deserve a Nobel Peace Prize

Human Rights in the European Union

Human Rights in the European Union

The Nobel Peace Prize should prompt the European Union and its members to do more to defend rights at home and abroad, stand up 

for victims, expose abusers, and ensure justice for serious crimes. 
To date, the EU and member states have often proved unwilling 
to tackle human rights abuses at home, including inadequate protection for migrants, discrimination against Roma, deteriorating media freedom, and racist violence.
