On May 12, Kanahus Manuel, an activist from the Secwepemc Nation, spoke at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography about the Mount Polley Mining Disaster, the failure of a tailings pond at a gold and copper mine owned by Imperial Metals, which sent 25 million cubic meters of toxic sediment down Hazeltine Creek, destroying it, and dispersing the toxins in Quesnal Lake, an important component of the Fraser River salmon spawning network. Kanahus focused on resistance to the theft and damage to indigenous lands by mining corporations and the central role that womyn play.

modern world’s confusing, hypersexualized, sometimes
dangerous landscape so they can define their own sexual
identity. Jaclyn will speak on how building a stronger
relationship with our authentic sexuality is a powerful act
of resistance — one of the most powerful ways we can

This last November, Dr. BBBBB’s office said it would refer me to pain management. It has not done so. The options proffered by emergency rooms are opiates, valium, or lots of muscle relaxers and aspirin while I wait for a physical therapist’s assessment and treatment plan that considers this month’s diagnosis by one of my neurologist’s: Ehlers-Danlos. With the exception of last weekend’s intravenous morphine at the hospital, I have opted for aspirins since the car accidents happened in December 2013 and January 2014.

The vote of the New York legislature to legally recognize same-sex marriage has produced a backlash of unexpected ferocity and scope. It comes from an Iowa-based organization called THE FAMiLY LEADER (that's the way it's printed on their logo) and it's called "The Marriage Vow." It's a far-reaching set of principles that goes beyond attacking same-sex marriage and supporting a Federal Marriage Amendment to ban it nationwide. It targets African-Americans in particular and says Black children born during the slave era were more likely to be raised by their mother and father than African-American infants born since Obama's election. It also calls for bans on adultery, "quickie" divorces, Sharia Islam and laws that don't conform to the Judeo-Christian agenda. The aim of its authors is to get all the current candidates for President to sign it — and two Republicans, Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty, already have.
