2018 Status versus Motion art project review

Idle No More rally Sir Winston Churchill Square 2013

"People have a voice, they will be heard!"
Respect people, property and the rule of law
December 31, 2018: My 2018 The Status versus Motion art project focused my creativity and my citizen free news attention on the corporate news media, Alberta Government and opposition parties inside our Alberta Legislature. This new years eve I can now say with confidence that the stage is set and the battle lines are drawn for the coming social upheaval in our Province and noticeable increase in environmental and political storms for 2019. Neither political side or the corporate news media has called for calm among Albertans but instead have stoked the flames of anger and fear and dramaturged a rise in violence, racism and hate among Albertans.
2018-03-10 During an early March protest against pipelines "protect the inlet" (above photo) while this small group of 30 people or more gathered in a round circle next to the Alberta Legislature one First Nations man declared that it was time to start killing oil patch workers. When it was my turn to speak I told the circle about the infamous warrior, actor and activist John Boncore aka Splitting The Sky who lived a life of violence (see investigate 9/11 1971). Near the end of John's life he admitted after 40 years living a lie to killing the young jail guard William Quinn during the Attica prison riot. He admitted this during a speaking engagement in upper state New York September 2011. He then said after admitting to murder that "anger, violence and warfare must be avoided at all costs, unless it's to defend the land" John died March 2013 from a fall after a night of alcohol and drugs. I said in the circle that we need to build pipelines since we are told by the oil industry, Alberta Government and opposition members inside the Alberta Legislature that they are the safest means to getting our oil product to markets other than the U.S. Afterwards we shook hands, hugged and went our separate ways...

"A prolonged stretch of low oil prices will bring economic, political and geopolitical changes that were once unthinkable." - Mohamed A. El-Erian
The Sign read "Read Fanon-#Justice4Colten"
2018-02-17 A lone placard pitched in the snow surrounded by dozens of candles wax melted in the snow from the night before reads "Read Fanon - #Justice4Colten." I learned from a CBC news story 'Justice for Colten': Hundreds gather for Boushie rally at Alberta legislature' the sign was left behind by one of the four women who co-founded the Idle No More movement Sylvia McAdam.
Water, we have a responsibility to our children, Doug Brinkman
Read Fanon (quotes)
“Violence is man re-creating himself. ” 
“The basic confrontation which seemed to be colonialism versus anti-colonialism, indeed capitalism versus socialism, is already losing its importance. What matters today, the issue which blocks the horizon, is the need for a redistribution of wealth. Humanity will have to address this question, no matter how devastating the consequences may be.” Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth

“Imperialism leaves behind germs of rot which we must clinically detect and remove from our land but from our minds as well.” Frantz Fanon

“Each generation must, out of relative obscurity, discover its mission, fulfill it, or betray it.” Frantz Fanon

“The Negro enslaved by his inferiority, the white man enslaved by his superiority alike behave in accordance with a neurotic orientation.” Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks

Frantz Fanon 20 July 1925 – 6 December 1961) was a psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary, and writer from the French colony of Martinique, whose works are influential in the fields of post-colonial studies, critical theory, and Marxism. As well as being an intellectual, Fanon was a political radical, Pan-Africanist, and Marxist humanist concerned with the psychopathology of colonization, and the human, social, and cultural consequences of decolonization.

“I, the man of color, want only this: That the tool never possess the man. That the enslavement of man by man cease forever. That is, of one by another. That it be possible for me to discover and to love man, wherever he may be.” Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Mask
