Modernizing community pastures: A made-in-Manitoba tragedy of the commons 17.5.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Lynne Fernandez In February, a provincial news release about changes to agricultural Crown lands advised that, "The Manitoba government has launched a consultation focused on agricultural Crown lands, to ensure upcoming policy changes reflect the views of the livestock industry while improving fairness and transparency in the system […]." How will these changes affect the Community Pastures Program, part of what was the federal government's Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration initiative? Referred to as "Canada's greatest success story," the program started in 1935 to deal with the devastation the Dust Bowl brought to the southern prairies. It included initiatives to deal with erosion, water access, irrigation and grass management through the Community Pastures Programs. These pastures are found in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and cover over two million acres in total. This program gave farmers and ranchers access to valuable public land which benefitted from the cattle's natural grazing ...

Sending Troops to the Border Will Cause More Migrant Deaths 11.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Late Friday night, Defense Secretary James Mattis approved the deployment of up to 4,000 troops to the US-Mexico border. The order, which came after Trump called for an increase in troops in response to a caravan of refugees seeking asylum, is not the first time the National Guard has been sent to the border. However, many people living in the borderlands believe the action escalates an already-weaponized war zone, and at a time when the US is seeing the lowest border crossing numbers since 1971.

Countless Archaeological Sites at Risk in Trump Oil and Gas Auction 14.3.2018 Truthout - All Articles
On March 20, the federal government is scheduled to auction off almost 41,000 acres in southeast Utah to oil and gas companies under expedited lease sales ordered last year by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. The push to lease these public lands would mean that archaeologists and Native Americans will not have a chance to fully document what's at stake. Carvings line a rock formation in the Nine Mile Canyon area of Utah. Such archaeological are currently threatened by the Trump administration's push to lease public lands.

Trump Budget Would Undo Gains From Conservation Programs on Farms and Ranches 19.2.2018 Truthout.com
Help preserve a news source with integrity at its core: Donate to the independent media at Truthout. Members of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees are starting to shape the  2018 farm bill  -- a comprehensive food and agriculture bill passed about every five years. Most observers associate the farm bill with food policy, but its conservation section is the single largest source of funding for soil, water and wildlife conservation on private land in the United States.  Farm bill conservation programs provide about  US$5.8 billion  yearly for activities such as restoring wildlife habitat and using sustainable farming practices. These programs affect about  50 million acres of land nationwide . They conserve  millions of acres of wildlife habitat  and  provide ecological services  such as improved water quality, erosion control and enhanced soil health that are worth billions of dollars.  Sixty percent of US land is privately owned, and it contains a  disproportionately high share  of habitat for ...

"The US's Culture of Violence Contributes to the Sanctification of the Second Amendment": An Interview With Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz 19.2.2018 Truthout.com
A gun display showing the Statue of Liberty holding a pistol is seen at a National Rifle Association outdoor sports trade show on February 10, 2017, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The Second Amendment was born of slave patrols and militia massacres of Indigenous people. (Photo: Dominick Reuter / AFP / Getty Images) The Second Amendment had little utility while white supremacy reigned, says Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of Loaded. It was only in the post-World War II era -- with the rise of the Black, Indigenous and Mexican freedom movements -- did white nationalists, including state and local officials, being using it as a legal tool to preserve or restore white dominance.

Bundy Reigns: Feds Still Ignoring Illegal Grazing 3.2.2018 Truthout.com
Rancher Cliven Bundy speaks during a news conference along the Virgin River near his ranch on April 24, 2014 in Bunkerville, Nevada. The Bureau of Land Management and Bundy have been locked in a dispute for a couple of decades over grazing rights on public lands. (Photo: David Becker / Getty Images) The US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is shirking promises it made to crackdown on the misuse of public lands. Released documents show that the agency has completely shelved planned regulations to root out ranchers engaged in illegal cattle grazing on BLM lands. The internal records show that throughout 2017, the agency's timeline for implementing the new rules on cattle grazing slipped from "ongoing" to "on hold." The regulations are now missing entirely from BLM's 2018 regulatory agenda. The Government Accountability Office previously found that BLM didn't record the vast majority of illegal grazing incidents. "Agency staff told GAO that they handle most incidents informally -- their preferred practice -- ...
