The Two Row: A Mutually Rewarding Relationship

From the

by Freida Jacques

The purpose of the Two Row Renewal Campaign is to help the Citizens of NYS realize that we the people of the Haudenosaunee and specifically the Onondaga Nation can have a mutually rewarding relationship. This relation based on respect for each of our cultures, our governments, our spiritual ways. This concept reflected by the two purple lines of wampum against the white wampum beads.  The white being the river of Life, which we both depend.

Transocean Fined

Transocean, the owner of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, agreed in January to pay $400 million for criminal penalties, plus $1 billion in civilian penalties. An explosion on the rig in 2010 released 185 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico and killed 11 workers. Further, the company has decided to plead guilty to accusations that it violated several of the Clean Water Act’s mandates before its next hearing in February.

Editors’ note: The PNL is pleased to introduce this new column by Seth Rutledge. (The first edition appeared in last month’s issue.) Seth will compile headlines of US-led or US-backed military activity around the world and put them in context when necessary. It’s not always easy to see how Washington’s influence makes its way into various global affairs. Our hope is that this column will shed light on the reach of the US military-industrial complex and draw attention to the many struggles worldwide that are too often overlooked.

As you read this, about a dozen activists are circumnavigating Lake Ontario on foot – a total of 400 miles – to publicize the presence and impact of the 17 nuclear reactors and a handful of uranium mining and fuel production sites on its shores. The Peace Walkers remind us that “it has been proven time and time again that humans do not have the capability to control the long-term effects of nuclear power from uranium mining to power production and radioactive waste.
