Honor the Treaties [Copy link] 中文

A historic event took place in the United States on November 5th 2009 when President Obama met with hundreds of Native American
tribal leaders. This type of face to face meeting has never happened before.  After the President spoke at length , seven leaders were
fortunate enough to speak. Of the seven, three mentioned the treaties. Treaties are the law, international contracts or agreements. They
are very important to Native Americans because not only are they legal written deeds to remnants of their homeland but whithin the
treaties is found the hidden history of the United States. What were the circumstances surrounding such agreements which gave 99%  
of the land to one party and only 1% to the other?  The history of the United States is a history of genocide and land grabbing that ended
with the signing of the treaties. The sad fact of the matter is that the land grabbing has never ended because the treaties have never
been honored. On the campaign trail, President Obama promised to honor the treaties. Indian horses have been confiscated for
tresspassing and nuclear  waste is to be arbitrarily stored on treaty land without the premission of the tribe or the State of Nevada.
President Obama should be held to his promise to enforce the laws on the books--the treaties.  
International law is a concern to all nations including China.  This is a human rights issue that should be a  concern to all people.
Indigenous people here in America need the support of the global community.  Please , click on the link below and sign the petition.  
Thank you.

And in China you would be nothing and a nobody. Just get your President to finish the unfinished business by either:

(1) wiping the remaining red indians out;
(2) pay the f**k up; or
(3)  ...



I`m not American,so it`s not my president. In fact many tribes nowadays run Casinos and take the money from the whites^^
