First Nation Travels to Washington D.C., Will Unilaterally Withdrawal from All Treaties with the United States Government
U.S., International Treaty Law Indicate Historic Land Range Returns to Sovereign Lakota People
Excellent Audio and Visuals: Press Conference to Feature Lakota Flag/Eagle Staff, Traditional Language and Music, Traditional Lakota Food and Other Refreshments
WHAT: A Historic Event between the Lakota Sioux Indians and the United States Government: Press Conference Announcing Unilateral Withdrawal of Lakota Nation From All U.S. Treaties and Return to Independence.
WHERE: Plymouth Congregational Church 5301 N. Capital Street, NE, Washington DC
WHEN: 11:30am, Wednesday December 19, 2007
WHO: Lakota Freedom Delegation, representatives of Lakota Sioux Indians- an Indigenous First Nation of North America. Delegation includes Lakota activist and actor Russell Means; Oglala Lakota Strong Heart Society leader Duane Martin Sr.; Gary Rowland, Leader Chief Big Foot Riders, Women of Red Nations founder Phyllis Young, Pearl Denet Claw Daniel and others.
SUMMARY: For far too long our people have suffered at the hands of the colonial apartheid system imposed on the Lakota Sioux. Our treaties with the United States government are nothing more than worthless words on worthless paper – repeatedly violated in order to steal our culture, our land and our ability to maintain our way of life.
The devastation this has wrought is clear: + Lakota men have a life expectancy of less than 44 years, lowest of any country in the World (excluding AIDS) including Haiti. + The Lakota infant mortality rate is 5x the U.S. Average.+ The Tuberculosis rate on Lakota reservations is approx 800% higher than the U.S national average. + 97% of our Lakota people live below the poverty line.+ Unemployment rates on our reservations are approximately 85%. + Teenage suicide rate is 150% higher than the U.S national average for this group.+ Our Lakota language is an Endangered Language, on the verge of extinction.
We have no choice but to take this historic action to protect our people and our way of life, and reclaim our freedom from the colonial systems of the United States Government. So we travel to Washington D.C. to withdraw from our treaties with the United States and announce full return of our sovereign status under Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution, International and Natural Law.
We are the freedom loving Lakota from the Sioux Indian reservations of Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana who have suffered from cultural and physical genocide in the colonial apartheid system we have been forced to live under. We are in Washington DC to withdraw from the constitutionally mandated treaties to become a free and independent country. We are alerting the Family of Nations we have now reassumed our freedom and independence with the backing of Natural, International, and United States law.

The elite's government FEARS you!!!!!!

Their fear is manifested in the laws they pass. Here is a law banning what MANY of the Founders wrote is a RIGHT of citizens when a government no longer represents them:

Section 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or
teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of
overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or
the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession
thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by
force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any
such government; or
Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any
such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates,
sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed
matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity,
desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any
government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts
to do so; or
Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society,
group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the
overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or
violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any
such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes
thereof -
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than
twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by
the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five
years next following his conviction.
If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in
this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned
not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for
employment by the United States or any department or agency
thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
As used in this section, the terms ''organizes'' and
''organize'', with respect to any society, group, or assembly of
persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new
units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes,
and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.

The federal government is allowing MILLIONS of illegals to invade our country who are causing immense economic harm to America's working poor. Corporate America is becoming increasingly more powerful and influential. Yet, according to the government of for and by the elites YOU, a citizen, have to accept whatever the government does with NO recourse other than voting...... and there is sufficient proof that shows to me voting is worthless since the entrenched power structure ensures that the emplaced elite class can not be removed.

Several Founders specifically wrote of the people's right to abolish a government when it no longer represents them.

We are forced to live under an elite's TYRANNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What about those of us who don't pass the "look test"? We will be allowed? I am Seneca and Cherokee but since I "look" white and my family didn't register on the Dawes Rolls as they didn't live in those states, they say I have no right to my blood line. We will be welcomed in your land?

I'm native Hawaiian and despite the troubles posed by these times and the poor treatment of the U.S. government to both our nations (overthrow and annexation) I cannot help but wonder if this will really help.

Considering the fact that the nation would be surrounded entirely by the United States, it would be a simple matter for them to blockade any Lakota Nation, assuming they even let this go. All routes into and out of Lakota territory pass through the U.S., and it would be a simple matter to deny them passage.

And quite simply the legal declaration preventing government overthrow is there for a good reason. It's there so that a bunch of crazies with guns can't try to overthrow the government just because they disagree with it. Because that system of government is called anarchy. Want a taste? Visit Africa for a few years, I hear their revolutions are quite violent, easily enough to suit your needs.

The founding fathers believed that the people have the right to overthrow the government if it becomes unfair only if they have the support of the majority. They said the "people" have that right, not the Lakota Nation, the American Working Class, or the Disgruntled Leftists. It has to be the majority of the people, which the Lakota Nation certainly isn't.

And if you think the U.S. government is fascist, what's left? China? North Korea? Or do you favor that wannabe Hugo Chavez who tried to get himself into office for life? Maybe Iran would be a better choice... it's not truly fascist if it's a fundamentalist theocracy is it?
