Mining company deploys more masked militiamen in Wisconsin

Leave a comment

This is why I fought to get Walker recalled. The republican’s idea of bringing jobs to Wisconsin is to sell off our natural resources with no protections for the environment and the people who live there. Now thanks to the republican state legislature and our governor we have a paranoid nut job West Virginia company bringing their militia goons armed with semi-automatic weapons into the state to “protect” their open mining operation. When you look at the photos it’s clear the intent is pure intimidation. I grew up in Wisconsin and this is not what we stand for. We used to lead the nation in conserving our forests and natural lands. I don’t know what converged to get this group of crooks elected, but they are intent on destroying not only the beauty of our state, but all the traditions it was built upon.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
