US `Just Us' system thumbs its nose at Indigenous sovereignty
In the `What Else is New' department, the AmeriKKKlan `Just Us Criminals' department reinforces the falsehood that it's `their' land.
The AmeriKKKlan `justice' system is still playing cowboys and Indians. On Jan. 3rd of this year, Native elder and pipe-carrier Zachary Runningwolf was arrested on bogus charges stemming from an incident which happened at the Occupy to Decolonize site on Nov. 15 last. On that morning, someone claiming to represent `Safety First Oakland'* came by w\ the intent of illegally removing signs and banners from the chain-link fence along the sidewalk at the O2D site, where I-580 passes over Telegraph Ave. in Oaktown, claiming that it was part of SFO's BID. He was met by resistance by Runningwolf and myself, and an unknown individual who threw debris onto his truck from the freeway overpass.
