An Open Letter by Dr. Al Carroll

To the members of the Nobel Peace Prize committee,

I hereby nominate the No Dakota Access Pipe Line movement, commonly known and referred to as NoDAPL, for the Nobel Peace Prize for the following reasons:


NO Dakota Access PipeLine Rally

The Dakota Access Pipeline is being built to carry 500,000 barrels of crude oil per day from the heavily fracked Bakken oil field in North Dakota to Illinois and from there along existing lines to Texas. The construction of the pipeline is destroying and desecrating numerous indigenous burial and sacred sites, and threatens the water and environment of lands it is invading. The Standing Rock Tribe, along with many other Tribes and accomplices is saying NO to the pipeline and calling for construction to stop.

Local Kumeyaay and urban Natives are organizing a Rally in solidarity with Standing Rock on Friday, September 9, 930am-300pm at the San Diego Federal Court House. A meeting to organize San Diego's response to the pipeline and to plan for the rally is scheduled for Wednesday, September 7, 500-800pm at Sixth and Laurel in Balboa Park. The organizers are asking folx to participate in the planning on Wednesday and come out to support at the rally on Friday.

San Diego Independent Media Center Hosts Film and Discussion on Diné Relocation at Big Mountain

sdindymedia volunteers

“From Big Mountain to Palestine, relocation is genocide!” sings Klee Benally, Diné activist, filmmaker and former member of the indigenous punk band Blackfire, in his song 'An Act of Liberation.'

Benally refers to two of numerous politically and economically motivated displacements of people in recent memory. For one, the Nabka, 700,000 Palestinians were forced to leave their villages in 1948 to make way for the creation of the state of Israel.

The other was the topic of a screening and discussion of the 1985 documentary film Broken Rainbow, hosted by the San Diego Independent Media Center at the Metate Infoshop on January 29, as part of Enero Zapatista. The film details the historical context, events leading up to, and human and environmental impact of the forced relocation of 14,000 Diné people from the Black Mesa area, beginning in 1974, to permit expansion of the operations of Peabody Coal. --Read More--

Event Announcement





We urge immediate protection for Gustavo Castro, injured during the assassination of Berta Cáceres

sdindymedia volunteer

Early this morning, March 3, 2016, armed individuals forcibly entered and assassinated Honduran activist Berta Cáceres, founder of COPINH, in her home in La Esperanza, department of Intibucá in southwestern Honduras.

Our friend and colleague Gustavo Castro Soto was injured during the attack. Gustavo is Mexican and a member of the organization Otros Mundos Chiapas/Friends of the Earth-Mexico, the Mexican Network of Mining-Affected Peoples and the Mesoamerican Movement against the Extractive Mining Model (M4). Gustavo survived the attack and has become a key actor in the investigation into the murder of our friend Berta.

In the context of the terrible assassination of the much loved Berta Cáceres, we call on the government of Honduras to pay immediate attention, to intervene, and to follow up on this devastating moment for the Honduran people. We also call for all legal and political measures possible to guarantee the immediate protection of our friend and colleague Gustavo Castro so that, once he has given his testimony to the Honduran state, he can safely return to Mexico. --Read More (english)-- | --Read More (español)--
