5th Annual March to Oak Flat, Feb. 8-10-2019
The Apache Stronghold has just announced the invitation for all to join the 5th Annual Oak Flat walk, February 8-10, 2019. We hope you can join us in solidarity with our spiritual journey of prayer and ceremony in protection of Chi'Chil'Ba'Goteel. Each year, hundreds of people have walked together for the 45 miles from the San Carlos reservation, through the mining towns of Miami and Globe, up to Oak Flat.  Everyone is invited! This walk is of spiritual importance to the Apache Stronghold and a way for us all to commit to protection of Oak Flat each year that the mine has still not been built!

Poor People's Campaign
march through Atlanta.
May 10, 1968

What if the Poor People of all races formed a political alliance?
Jarvis DeBerry, columnist, updated Feb. 1, 2019

When Hurricane Michael ripped the roof off a federal prison in the Florida Panhandle town of Marianna in October, the inmates there were transferred to Yazoo City, Miss. Thus, the prison’s employees were required to make a seven-hour drive and work in two-week stints to keep their positions. In December, the federal government was partially shut down, which meant those federal employees were traveling back and forth to work in Mississippi without getting paid.

“I voted for him, and he’s the one who’s doing this,” 38-year-old Crystal Minton, a secretary at the prison, said of President Donald Trump to The New York Times. “I thought he was going to do good things. He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.”

The Rev. William Barber spoke about more than a hundred million hurting Americans in an address at Tulane University’s McAlister Auditorium Wednesday night (Jan. 30), without (to my recollection) specifically referring to the shutdown. But Barber made sure to make this point: Poor white people have repeatedly been harmed by politicians they believed would only hurt others.

Barber pastors a church in North Carolina, where, according to a 2016 federal appeals court ruling, lawmakers passed voting restrictions designed to “target African-Americans with almost surgical precision." Politicians who have been ushered into office thanks to voter-suppression efforts, Barber argued, have passed laws that have punished the poor.

And most of America’s poor are white.

Barber began his speech by thanking his hosts for not inviting him to a Martin Luther King celebration. “You don’t celebrate martyrs,” he said. To honor them, he said, you “go to the place they fell, reach down in the mud, pick up the baton and go the next mile.”

When King was assassinated in 1968, he was leading what he called a Poor People’s Campaign. Fifty years later, Barber co-chairs the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. “The first goal of this is to change the narrative,” he said before Wednesday’s speech. Referring to the federal definition of poverty, he said, “All you have to do is be single and make $12,000, and they say you’re not poor. We know that’s not true.”

About 40,600,000 people in the United States (12 percent of the population) meet the government’s stingy definition of poverty. But according to the “Report on the Economic Well-Being of U.S. Households in 2017,” published by the Federal Reserve, “Four in 10 adults in 2017 would either borrow, sell something, or not be able to pay if faced with a $400 emergency expense … One in five adults cannot cover their current month’s bills, and one in four skipped a medical treatment in the past year due to an inability to pay.”

In his speech, Barber said that about half of Louisiana’s 4.7 million residents are struggling financially, but, “I bet you haven’t had a person run for office talk about the poor.” Well, certainly not in a way that suggests that the poor are deserving of advocacy, respect and public officials who will work to make their lives less miserable.

Of course, politicians aren’t going to champion the poor because they all live in a country where everybody is (at minimum) middle class. Of course, it’s mathematically impossible for everybody to be in the middle, but that’s the lie that millions of impoverished Americans have told themselves: that they’re in the middle, too. Or that they’re in a temporary bad spot that could be cured with a little more hard work.

When I asked Barber if a general reluctance to use the word poor helps explain resistance to a Poor People’s Campaign, he said he and his co-chair, the Rev. Liz Theoharis, were encouraged to think about a word other than “poor” when resurrecting King’s campaign. “People said we might not want to call it that,” Barber said.

Imagine that: trying to address a problem you won’t even name.

I don’t know if Barber and Theoharis ever seriously considered calling their campaign something else, but Barber said that the people they’re fighting for made it plain the language they should use: “We want folks to know we’re poor …I’m not gonna tell that lie anymore that I’m middle class. I’m one check away from poverty.” And because 62 million Americans are working “every day for less than a living wage,” Barber said, they’re not even one check away from poverty.

Segregation, King said in a 1965 speech, is what the poor white man in the South got instead of decent wages. “And when his wrinkled stomach cried out for the food that his empty pockets could not provide, he ate Jim Crow, a psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than the black man.”

The prison employee’s quote that she elected Trump to hurt other folks – but not her – is symptomatic of the disease King diagnosed. Barber is trying to do what King was trying to do when he was murdered: Bring the poor of all races together to demand changes that help
them all.

“The poor in the South hold the key,” he said. “These states are not red states. They are unorganized and undermobilized states. If you change the South, you change the country.”

February 8, 2019

Nationally, five new large fires were reported and five were contained. There are currently two large active fires: one each in Colorado and Florida.

Weather: Another pair of weakening storm systems will drop southeast out of the Gulf of Alaska into the Pacific Northwest beginning Friday bringing more low elevation rainfall and mountain snow as far south as the High Sierra in California and as far east as the Continental Divide. Overall, temperatures across the west will continue to be below average. As the systems approach windy, dry conditions will create a critical fire weather environment across eastern New Mexico and West Texas through Saturday before abating. The first of the two systems will move into the northern Great Plains and the Upper Midwest by Sunday afternoon bringing snow to the northern tier of the nation. The second system will dig south into California where it will slowly move east along the Mexican Border through Tuesday. Ahead of it, expect periods of heavy rainfall across the Southeast. Behind it, expect a warmer, northerly flow to develop which should promote near-average temperatures midweek. A third and fourth system will drop south from the Gulf of Alaska on Wednesday and Thursday nights producing more valley rainfall and mountain snow. Temperatures will cool slightly in response to the passing systems.

"Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of
Changing the World" by
Anand Giridharadas

Billionaires Are the Lethal Monkey on the Back of the
American Public
- Audio Interview* (30 mins) ~ Bob Scheer's Truthdig

"Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World"–to my mind, this is an inside view of a new ruling class. I don’t think I’m exaggerating. It’s a world that–you have all the watering holes, the TED conferences, the Aspen, everywhere else; you’ve been there, you’ve been there as a journalist for The New York Times for about 12, 15 years. You studied at some elite institutions, you worked at the Aspen Institute. And what we meet in this book are people who are into a great exercise of delusion, that they can make out like bandits and still be Robin Hood. Is that not the deal?
