Default Its not just the Amazon - indigenous in the US resist

Just to ensure this is not forgotten - not only people in the Amazon or in rainforests are still under threat of their land been taken away - this is still going on in the US as well:
Protect Glen Cove | Sacred Burial Ground in Vallejo, CA

Quote:
Glen Cove is acknowledged by GVRD and the City of Vallejo to contain many burials and to be important culturally, yet as of Thursday night they were still were planning to move forward with plans to build a toilet and parking lot on this sacred site.
....
"This is Indian Land. We don’t need permission to stay here and protect our ancestors." We don’t need permits to hold ceremony on our sacred grounds.

Who says the parking lot is not one belonging to Wal Mart
No, this is the relevant quote:
"the Greater Vallejo Recreation District (GVRD) and the City of Vallejo have been pursuing the development of the Glen Cove site into a “fully featured” public park. GVRD’s current Master Plan calls for the installation of a parking lot, restroom facility, picnic tables, and construction of additional trails, including a paved trail. It also calls for re-grading of large areas of the site, which involves digging that will further disturb burials and sacred objects. This planned grading includes “capping” known shellmound/burial areas with 12 inches of soil."

Wait; building, on a native american burial ground?

They deserve whatever terrible consequences arise from that.

Signed the partition. It's just horrible that the Native people of America are still being pushed aside by the government. >.<
