Hurricane “Russell” ?
“I’ll be coming back as lightning, so if you hear that lightning has struck the White House…you’ll know who did it.”

Indigenous Peoples Occupy Belo Monte Dam Site in Brazil, Stop Destruction of their Territory
SAO PAULO — About 100 Indians, fishermen and other activists opposed to a huge hydroelectric dam being built on the Xingu river in the heart of Brazil’s Amazon rainforest are occupying one of its construction sites.
The Norte Energia consortium that is building the Belo Monte dam says the protesters occupied the site Tuesday night.
The activist group known as Xingu Alive Forever says the work site was occupied to protest “plans to definitively dam the Xingu River” jeopardizing the livelihoods of some 40,000 people who live in the area where the dam is being built.
Norte Energia says that for security reasons it halted work at the site and transferred nearly 1,000 men to other work sites.

The celebration of Columbus Day in the U.S. began in Colorado. In Colorado, the celebration
began in Pueblo in 1905. Annually, there is an honoring of Columbus at the Columbus statue
in downtown Pueblo, across from the new public library (100 Abriendo Ave.). We believe
that libraries should be a source for education, for cultural competency, and for historical
accuracy. Colorado AIM will join our relatives in Pueblo this year, to stand against the
racism of Columbus Day, to set the historical record straight about the so‐called Doctrine of
Discovery and the racist legacy of Columbus & Columbus Day, and to be living proof that
indigenous peoples are not “discovered,” “conquered,” or disappearing from our homeland.
