Associated Press Blames Tribes for Walker’s Failed Jobs Agenda - #IdleNoMore #WATER #BadRiver

Associated Press Blames Tribes for Walker’s Failed Jobs Agenda - #IdleNoMore #WATER #BadRiver | Idle No More Goes Global | Scoop.it

February 13, 2013 by Barbara With and Rebecca Kemble In a nationally circulated article concerning Wisconsin’s dismal job creation numbers, Associated Press reporter Todd Richmond attempts to scapegoat the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa as the reason Gov. Scott Walker’s record on jobs creation is the worst in the country. Walker, who has been struggling to deliver on a campaign pledge to create 250,000 new jobs before he launches his 2014 re-election bid, plans to take his massive failures out on what Mike Wiggins Jr. calls, “a small group of brown people.”

FACT: Bad River Tribe employs 200-which is the largest employer in Ashland County. Email AP Bureau Chief George Garties at ggarties@ap.org to complain - Say NO to poor journalism that scews lies and hatred bringing forth stereotyping and racism for partisan favored propaganda. - News should always be fair and balanced.


"Wiggins is Chair of the Bad River Band that opposes a 21-mile mountaintop removal open pit mine being proposed for the Penokee Hills in northern Wisconsin ... The acid mine drainage from pyrite-rich tailings piles would destroy the wild rice in the sloughs directly in the path of the mine and contaminate the entire Bad River watershed."

"The Bad River Casino, mentioned in the article as the “smallest in the state,” is also the largest employer in Ashland County where the mine will be built. The casino employs over 220 employees and through gaming compacts, contributes $100,000 annually to fund local services, including law enforcement, victim services, the Boys and Girls Club and economic development initiatives in the county."

Stephen E. W. Savage's insight:

Observe. Idle No More, the grassroots movement begun in Canada, is going global.

 

This is a leading sign of the new aeon.

 

Idle No More is no longer just an indigenous Canadian issue.

 

The future of the indigenous nations and environmental rights are closely aligned and impact everyone on Earth.

 

The Age of Corporate Elitism is fast-drawing to a close.

 

Out of the chaos that is comes Creation.

 

Love for the Earth and the Generations.
