ELANA SCHOR // Elizabeth Warren apologizes again for Native American heritage comments | 13newsnow.com: By providing fresh evidence that she had personally identified her race, the document resurrected the flap just as she's trying to gain momentum for her 2020 presidential bid, which she's expected to formally announce on Saturday. Warren didn't rule out the possibility of other documents in which she identified as a Native American.

I am happy to work with All members of Parliament for this purpose. I am not here to play games - our peoples problems are serious issues - with every step people we are in crisis and dying: suicide, mental health, dialysis - young people are lost and confused. There are many leaders fighting for our children and their future.
I have not been respected by this Government. They make a good show of pretending to listen but they have cut me out of any real consultation or conversation. I’m sick and tired of people answering my questions by going round and round. Nothing direct. I’m sick and tired of being offered briefings. I should provide briefings because I have been elected by the people to be their voice - we brief the Government. The Government does not want to listen and we must find a way. And now Ken Vowles and Scott McConnell are saying this too. I have been saying it for 2 and half years.
I remain the voice of my Electorate and I am fighting for our rights. I’m getting frustrated but I’m getting stronger and stronger and I’ll keep fighting."

WSJ: After Venezuela, U.S. to Target Cuba in Effort to Reshape Latin America | Democracy Now!: The Wall Street Journal is reporting the U.S.-backed effort to oust Venezuelan President Nicol�s Maduro is just the first step in the Trump administration’s plan to reshape Latin America—with Cuba next on its radar. According to the report, the U.S. is planning to announce new measures against Cuba in the coming weeks, including new sanctions and restoring Cuba’s designation as a state sponsor of terrorism. The moves could severely hamper foreign investment into the country. According to The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. then plans to target Nicaragua. In November, national security adviser John Bolton dubbed the three nations the “troika of tyranny.”
Wet’suwet’en ask province to issue pipeline company “cease and desist” order - APTN NewsAPTN News: The RCMP’s enforcement of a Coastal GasLink (CGL)-initiated court injunction earlier this month garnered national and international media attention and prompted nationwide rallies in support of the Unist’ot’en House and Gidimt’en Clan, who have reoccupied their territories in an effort to stop the pipeline.
Late last week members of the Wet’suwet’en Nation alleged CGL bulldozed a Unist’ot’en trapline and tents belonging to the Gidimt’en Clan, and that the company—a subsidiary of Calgary-based TC Energy—has not completed a required archaeological impact assessment.
The Wet’suwet’en say the actions violate the company’s permits.
ACTION ALERT – Urgent Call for Solidarity Action to Stop Work on #Unistoten Territory – Enough is Enough!: These sites must be assessed by archaeologists and by our own knowledge-keepers before any more destruction takes place. We do not want to find the bones of our ancestors dredged up by CGL bulldozers.
CGL has failed to produce any evidence of archaeological work for their man camp site on Unist’ot’en territory to our Dini’ze and Tsake’ze (Hereditary Chiefs), the BC Oil and Gas Commission, BC Environmental Assessment Office, or the BC Archaeological Branch. They are blatantly violating the conditions of their permits, while regulatory officials and RCMP look on.
The Wet’suwet’en proved in the Delgamuukw-Gisday’wa court case that we have never ceded our lands, that our sovereign rights to these territories have never been extinguished, and that our Dini’ze and Tsake’ze are the Title Holders to our 22,000 square km territory. Our Dini’ze and Tsake’ze are the highest authorities on these lands, and our Anuk Nu’at’en (Wet’suwet’en Law) is the highest law of this land.
