Iran listens to Natives & tells World that Canada has exploited – even committed genocide against Native People in order to steal resources – OPEC to finally hear the truth
We will also vociferously defend Canada’s Aboriginal population. Canada has exploited and even committed genocide against the Aboriginal people rather than investing in their treasure of cultural and civilization wealth. – Mohammad Javad Larijani (Iranian secretary for the High Council for Human Rights)
The world is learning that Iranian government is willing to back Canadian Native leaders if they want to address member nations of the O.P.E.C. (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) at future summits, thanks to former Roseau River chief Terry Nelson and former Dakota Tipi chief Dennis Pashe, who just left Iran after an historic visit which included visits and meetings with top officials.
Nelson has reported that Iran says it backs growing momentum for Native communities who seek justice including fair financial compensation for resources which remain pilfered / stolen from their lands, including 2.5 million barrels a day of oil that is pumped from Indigenous territories and sent by Canada to the America under a free-trade agreement.
Nelson and former Dakota Tipi chief Dennis Pashe have been in Iran this week meeting with Iranian government officials and academics despite Canadian Prime (Crime) Minister Harper’s government’s bizarre attempts to muzzle the truth…
Late this summer, Canada severed diplomatic ties with Iran, shut down its embassy in Tehran and deported Iranian diplomats out of Canada. Canada has also imposed sanctions against Iran, joining NATO allies in attempting to pressure the People’s Republic of Iran, supposedly over nuclear energy concerns.
It is widely suspected that Harper’s cozy Zionist-Israel and U.S. business alliances all support military action and strikes against Iran citing nuclear weapons concerns. Does this remind anyone of Iraq WMD lies and paranoia?
In reality, we now see that Harper and his cohorts loathe the fact that Iran plans to support Native leaders who wish tell the OPEC oil cartel the truth about what has been going on – and how Harper and his cohorts are able to appear to live “high off the hog” – whist natives are either forgotten and ignored, or exploited and ignored.
Iran’s effort to enable North American Natives to state the case that they are the true owners Canada’s petroleum resources to OPEC is monumental – and long past due. (The next OPEC meeting is scheduled for Dec. 12 in Vienna, Austria.)
“We call upon the government of Canada to consider the experiences of other countries regarding fair distribution of the natural resources’ income… The OPEC nations have had similar history in dealing with colonial powers.” – Terry Nelson
12 member nations belong to OPEC and the cartel is known to exert considerable influence over the price of oil in its decisions to increase or decrease oil production.
OPEC member countries include Saudi Arabia, Iran, Kuwait, Iraq, Venezuela, Qatar, Nigeria, Algeria, Angola, Libya, the United Arab Emirates and Ecuador.
APTN National News has reported that Nelson also said in an interview that “Iranian NGO Peace Lovers Society Organization had also agreed to provide university scholarships to 10 First Nations students to study in Iran in areas of oil and gas, medicine and economics.”
Nelson is said to have left Iran on Wednesday, after a series of meetings with senior Iranian government officials and elders as well as spoken to several university classes and media during his stay in Tehran.
Nelson and Dennis Pashe also appeared on Press TV (Iran’s English-language news network) – just as Press TV and other Iranian television networks were banned by the European Union and their satellite feeds cancelled.
“We had very productive meetings with the Iranian civil society and government. We were warned not to go to Iran and Western media have consistently tried to dehumanize and demonize the Iranian people. The people of Iran are nothing like the lies told in Western media.” – Terry Nelson
On Tuesday, Nelson also met with Mohammad Javad Larijani, Iran’s secretary for the High Council for Human Rights. Lirijani, a senior advisor to Iran’s supreme religious leader Ayatolla Khamenei, said the country would take up Nelson’s cause without question.
