It’s hard to forget the BP oil spill. It’s arguably one of the most disastrous oil spills in history. The spill came at a huge cost to the Gulf of Mexico, devastating marine life as well as the livelihoods of those that depended on it. As for BP oil – the cost of settlement’s and clean-up came in at a whopping $37.2 billion and counting.
Environmental groups, the government, and activists everywhere have been fighting to protect the defenceless Gulf of Mexico. It’s simple – if they don’t fight for it, who else will? Well, actually, the Gulf of Mexico can fight for itself!
The Canadian genocide, the eradication of “Indian Peoples”, is amongst the most systematic and deceptive of all genocides. Assimilation runs parallel with eradication. Typical genocides are fuelled by mindless hatred – a need to blame economic/social problems on a minority, and then eradicate that minority in an elaborate scheme to gain power by taking it away from others. The Canadian genocide – the systematic destruction of native culture and elimination of its practitioners – was fuelled, in the public eye, by a deceptive notion of helping the native people; of educating them so that they may function in a modern society. The idea presented to the public about Residential Schools wasn’t one of the eradication of Native people, but one of curing them of their so-called primitive culture and pagan values. Prevailing and dominant Canadian history presents a story in which the elimination of the Native peoples was not genocide, in a rather successful attempt to cover-up the monstrosities which were sanctioned by the Government of Canada. Many of these monstrosities occurred as recently as within the past century, and this report will reveal these atrocious acts.
