Right now people in Mexico are taking a stand against the Mexican government's sale mineral rights in the sacred places of the huichol people to Canadian company First Majestic Mining Corp. The ecosystem in the area of proposed mining is extremely diverse, yet very delicate. The movement is gaining steam, just like the Occupy movement, and faces all the same challenges.

When corporate profits come first, I think it's reasonable to say that culture and environment are marginalized. If you pay taxes, please consider that you may contribute a portion of your tax burden to non-profits of your choice. The portion you're allowed to contribute goes to the non-profit, not to the government, and is based on your income/estimated taxes. Or you can piss your taxes away by giving them to the government. You have until Decemeber 31st to contribute for this years taxes. Vote w/ your dollar - you already do.

what is the difference between pickles labeled 'kosher pickles' and pickles that have the U symbol (Meaning Kosher) on them, which no one knows what it means? Also, what is the difference between organic crackers that aren't Kosher and organic crackers labeled with the deceptive Kosher U symbol??? Anyone know out there? Why are we being deceived?

The Canadian company, First Majestic, is 51% owned by the Inuit.
