Today’s Almanac features a special message on Standing Rock and the imminent threat to lives due to the use of water cannon in freezing conditions. Links to donate and phone numbers you can call are included. Thanks to Lizanne Webb for the heads up.


Special Message: Urgent Update on Standing Rock
by Graham Nash
In case you may not have known: people are likely to start dying at Standing Rock — if they aren’t already:
The Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council released this statement: “The physicians and tribal healers with the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council call for the immediate cessation of use of water cannons on people who are outdoors in 28F ambient weather with no means of active rewarming in these conditions. As medical professionals, we are concerned for the real risk of loss of life due to severe hypothermia under these conditions.”

Not to mention continuous mass tear gas, rubber bullets, as well as stinger grenades and LRAND (Long Range Acoustic Device) for 3 hours.

Law enforcement also shot down three media drones and targeted journalists with less lethal rounds.

National Lawyers Guild legal observers on the frontlines have confirmed that multiple people were unconscious and bleeding after being shot in the head with rubber bullets. One elder went into cardiac arrest at the frontlines but medics administered CPR and were able to resuscitate him. The camp’s medical staff and facilities are overwhelmed and the local community of Cannonball has opened their school gymnasium for emergency relief.

If Your Birthday is Nov. 27
(The Day of Electrifying Excitement) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you haven’t yet found your life’s calling, chances are that soon you will at least have an idea. If you already know it, you will likely be taking significant steps toward your goal. Only be sure to recognize the smoothing of the path before you as your unambiguous cue to sprint.

Written in the Planets
Today Mercury and Mars make aspects suggesting that if there are some fences to be mended, conscious effort will probably suffice to start the process. You could feel a certain renewed clarity on common ground, which might previously have seemed elusive. Additionally, we each may recollect that famous proverb about sin and throwing stones. Another way to say that is: everyone has some good in them.

    It is my understanding that President Obama has the capacity to stop this insanity, but has chosen to not do so.
    My love & prayers are with those who endure there, in such peril & with such courage. May Grace be with them.

      correct. he could direct the Army Corpse of Engineers to back down. He could federalize the National Guard and order them to stand down. He could say something. What you see Obama doing is classic neoliberalism. It’s a fraud. And anyone who calls him “a liberal” is a liar and a fraud.

      1. Amy Elliott

        That breaks my heart. I hope he will at least buckle under the public pressure.

        What does it say about a system of government when even its liberals aren’t liberal, I wonder?
