Six Weeks in the Air: Tree-sitter addresses food and health concerns

first_imgOn day 42 of her tree-sit to block the Mountain Valley Pipeline from clearcutting and drilling through Jefferson National Forest and the Appalachian Trail, ‘Nutty’ addressed concerns about her food and water supplies and physical health in a post via Appalachians Against Pipelines:I wanted to write in response to the concerns I know many have expressed as to my health as I finish off my sixth week of living on this monopod.I have gallons of water stored. I still have a stock of energy bars and some packets of applesauce. This is, comparatively, an extremely mild form of deprivation, and one I’m fortunate my body seems to have adapted well to. Recently a doctor hiked up to check on me, and asked (via megaphone, over the noise of the generator the cops turned on) if I needed any medicine. I don’t; all the medicine I want right now is to hear that rebellion is spreading.A couple of members of the Giles County Rescue Squad (local ambulance, not rope rescue) have been coming here on their own time to check on me, and have been allowed to come in the closure and talk (though they cannot send anything up either). One of them warned me of the symptoms of rhabdomyolysis and kidney failure, which I am not experiencing, and said I was at increased risk of DVT (blood clots), which I mitigate by exercising my legs. Some aspects of living up here are uncomfortable, but none of this is life threatening as long as the support lines running to the four anchors for this pole remain intact.There are far too many who do face life threatening risks from pipelines in our region.Countless people and families are being confronted with the future of having their homes become part of the blast zone of pipelines carrying highly explosive fracked gas. Communities like Union Hill along the Atlantic Coast Pipeline route are being threatened with the toxic fumes of compressor stations.Fight for their (and for your) health.Tracts of contiguous forest habitat are being fragmented by pipelines, forested wetlands destroyed, waterways and aquifers threatened by inevitable pipeline leaks and spills.Fight for their health.We live in a toxic civilization that is killing us all (some faster than others) and decimating the health of our planet at a terrifying rate.So we all have some major health concerns. Enough, certainly, to take the fire in our hearts, our rage against all that is happening to us, our families, our friends, our earth, and let it loose against those trying to destroy us.Let’s prove that when the cops and pipeline security lounge and laugh at their camp under the monopod, comfortable in their knowledge that I can’t stay up here forever, they are grievously underestimating our strength and our determination to keep on fighting. Not in one place, not with one tactic, but with myriad possibilities for confrontation, disruption and attack.Spread that fire.To support Nutty and the tree-sitters blocking the Mountain Valley Pipeline, visit donate: bit.ly/supportmvpresistancelast_img read more


Questions raised over role of Letterkenny’s Litter Warden

first_imgMajor concerns have been raised about the current position of the Litter Warden in Letterkenny.Cllr Ciaran Brogan brought the issue to the fore with the local authority yesterday after it emerged that the previous litter warden had moved to another role.Cllr Brogan asked the council environment section to clarify the role of the current warden and said:  “We have had a lot of success with Tidy Towns over the years and that didn’t happen by accident. We have had a lot of good work with residents associations around the town “The litter warden we had went well beyond the call of duty and we need to make sure we have the same full-time dedicated service to match what is needed. I am calling on senior management to invest in that as a matter of urgency.” Questions raised over role of Letterkenny’s Litter Warden was last modified: November 12th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more


Mandela Day blankets for minister’s ‘favourite people’

first_img18 July 2014 The faces of senior citizens at Imizamo Home for the Aged in Hout Bay, Cape Town lit up during a Mandela Day visit by Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown on Friday. “This area used to be my constituency, so it is not the first time that I am coming here,” Brown said after handing out blankets and food parcels to the elderly. “Senior citizens are the most important people in the society because without you, all of us would not be here. On this special day, that we celebrate Mandela Day, I would much rather spend it with my favourite people, and that is you senior citizens.” Accompanied by acting Eskom CEO Collins Matjila, Brown then moved on to the main road of Imizamo Yethu, joining over 200 women and youngsters clad in blue Eskom overalls in cleaning up the streets of the dense township. The minister called on township residents to refrain from connecting electricity illegally, saying it was hazardous and endangered the lives of all residents in the area. She said the government would do all it could to find available land where decent human settlements could be built for the residents. The United Nations officially declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day in November 2009, recognising Mandela’s “values and his dedication to the service of humanity” and acknowledging his contribution “to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world”. Celebrated across the globe in honour of the late statesman’s birthday on 18 July, the day gives everyone the opportunity to emulate Mandela’s role as public servant though volunteering and community service.

The North sent around 500 people to the Olympics, including officials, athletes, artists and 229 cheerleaders who amused spectators with their synchronized routines and songs.Seoul’s decision to allow Kim to visit trigged controversy because South Korea had accused him of being the mastermind of two attacks on the South that killed 50 people in 2010 when he headed the North’s Reconnaissance General Bureau.Hundreds of protesters rallied outside the Olympic Stadium, holding signs like “Killer Kim Yong Chol go to hell,” while Kim attended Sunday’s closing ceremony with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. presidential adviser Ivanka Trump.Several conservative lawmakers protested on a road near the inter-Korean land border on Tuesday, demanding Kim apologize over the attacks before leaving. Seoul’s Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon had breakfast with Kim and other North Korean officials earlier in the day, where they praised the Pyeongchang Olympics as a successful peace gesture, the ministry said.Reviving inter-Korean dialogue is critical for the policies of Moon, a liberal who insists Seoul should be in control of international efforts to deal with North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.ADVERTISEMENT Pussycat Dolls set for reunion tour after 10-year hiatus But experts say arranging an inter-Korean summit would be difficult after a year in which the North conducted its most powerful nuclear test and flight-tested intercontinental ballistic missiles that could, when perfected, target the U.S. mainland.South Korea may also need to persuade the United States and Japan, which are concerned North Korea is using its outreach to Seoul to relieve pressure over its nuclear programs.
