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. Crosses memoralize those killed at a section of fence along the US / Mexico border. (Photo: Daniel Lobo ; Edited: LW / TO) This article was published by TalkPoverty.org.

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.
