FENCES AND AUTHORITY
The following is one example of incredibly widespread moral bankruptcy that is aside from financial. The stock market is an indication of the general tendency to place greed over life. Jamie Dimon seemed to lead a willing Obama (everybody does it) to reward Financial Meltdown perpetrators in 2008 when he could have chosen to uplift consumers.
CHASE BANK opens new branch downtown Springfield Ma. 3/7/23
Did you know that Chase is the worlds #1 funder of
fossil fuels. Is investor profit more important than
our future natural world and our children and grandchildren? Jamie Dimon, CEO, thinks so. He has
directed Chase to invest nearly 400 Billion in ff since
the 2015 Paris agreements.
This bank is MORALLY BANKRUPT and should not represent the values of the great city of Springfield.

Defense of protesters to Cop City is crucial in fighting Climate Change. Inability to connect the dots is symptomatic of capitalistic indoctrination similar to that of the perpetrator bailout by the Executive Branch in 2008. The excuse that financial institutions are “too big to fail” overlooks the same as applied to our environment.
We must defend the land. Please do what you can to support the efforts going on in Atlanta.

Politicians who support Cop City have attempted to discredit forest defenders as “outside agitators.” This smear has a disgraceful history in the South, where authorities have used it against abolitionists, labor organizers, and the Civil Rights Movement, among others. The goal of those who spread this narrative is to discourage solidarity and isolate communities from each other while offering a pretext to bring in state and federal forces, who are the actual “outside agitators.” The consequence of that strategy is on full display in the tragedy of January 18.
In Atlanta and across the US, investment in police budgets comes at the expense of access to food, education, childcare, and healthcare, of affordable and stable housing, of parks and public spaces, of transit and the free movement of people, of economic stability for the many. Concentrating resources in the hands of police serves to defend the extreme accumulation of wealth and power by corporations and the very rich.–end of defendtheatlantaforest info—
The following seems to be a movement in the direction of institutional espousal of the wisdom of those pre-industrialization.—
Received from The Natural History Museum (email@example.com) —We know ouher communities, scientists, and scholars to challenge the colonial logics imprinted in practices of historic preservation, science education, and conservation—and to chart a path forward.The project kicks off with a new collection of essays that considers how the climate emergency is not just an environmental crisis, but also an epistemological crisis, demanding not only a reckoning with public policy but also with the colonial regime of knowledge that has influenced how people see and relate to the land and each other.We’re also excited to announce the Red Natural History Fellowship, a new two-year program that supports scholars and practitioners who are making change within their fields—to redress social and environmental harms, and advance a just and safe future for all life on Earth. Learn more about our inaugural cohort of Red Natural History Fellows below.This is only the start. The first red natural history event is coming up next month. Register today for “Unfence the Future: Taking Down Fortress Conservation and its Enduring Legacy“, a free virtual symposium dedicated to decolonizing federal law, historic preservation, and conservation. For the Future,
The Natural History Museum

What if we understand natural history not simply as the study of nature, ecosystems, or premodern cultural traditions, but as a site of struggle between two incommensurate relations to the world—one governed by a logic of extraction and enclosure and another that relates to the world as a world in common that cannot be enclosed? Edited by Not An Alternative as part of the collective’s ongoing project The Natural History Museum, this dossier features texts by Indigenous historians, theorists, and ethnobotanists, as well as critical geographers, landscape architects, artists, and activists.

https://thenaturalhistorymuseum.org/events/unfence-the-future/ —While the science of fortress conservation has been widely discredited, we continue to live in its world. Where did this model come from? Where does it endure? How is it encoded in current laws, policies, and institutional practices—and more broadly, in our ways of seeing, understanding, and relating to the land? And what are activists, communities, and institutions doing to take it down?
