Moderator’s Note: Please direct any questions about this post to Amy
Semler <amyfly6@yahoo.com> and not to me. I would suggest that before
you purchase any stock (this is my own opinion) that you confirm that if
you purchase the Lehman Brothers stock now, you will be qualified to
attend the meeting. There are many discount stock brokers and many
hotels, so you might want to shop around.


To save hotel expenses, if anyone on the list lives in NYC, Westchester
County, Long Island, or other nearby area within commuting distance and
would like to volunteer to put up people wishing to protest at this
meeting, please email me (redorman@theofficenet.com) with your offers
and any conditions (like no-smokers, number of people). I will post to
the list.

BIG MOUNTAIN MOBILIZATION 2001


International and National Mobilization Lehmen Brothers Corporation 3
World Financial Center, NYC RALLY April 2 10 am FRIENDLY TAKEOVER OF
SHAREHOLDERS MEETING April 3 2001 10 am


Statement 3: Leonard Benally, in solidarity with St.
Louis Support


To all National and International Concerned People,


Again we wish to say our word with Respect and Honor to all the
Indigenous Non-Indigenous People, the resistance continues at Big
Mountain, “U.S. of A.” It was good to hear from all the Indigenous and
Non-Indigenous People that have written to us with their support, so far
that we bow our heads to you with respect that we reached you with our
words. Even though you live in other lands, you are struggling too, but
its good to knowwe are on the same path for liberty and justice for all.
On Feb 26, 2001 at 10 am, we went to Lehman Bros. Corporation to meet
with their leaders in a “friendly first step.” So they kept their first
agreement with us which is OK. I think its the right thing for them to
do to listen to the little people. Because we have been ignored, lied
to, given empty promises and false hope. But we the small man and woman
of Big Mountain, are never going to live in silence, we are speaking
out. And we have faced the first step with their representative’s. And
of course Peabody representatives too; they listened and recorded our
demand’s.


List the following:

  • 1. For the Traditional Dine People to speak at the April 3 shareholders meetings, giving the Indigenous Delegation 7 to 10 minutes each as all will speak for the Resistance.
  • 2. This initial meeting will be the first of 4 meetings with Lehmen Bros. Corp.
  • 3. Religious Freedom Rights, Human Rights and Environmental Rights be respected buy use now of Alternative forms of energy. We requested/demanded that with all their intelligence and money that the Lehman Bros. put Global Life first and turn to solar and wind power instead digging up more coal and destroying our Altar. We want them to give the life back to Black Mesa and the Indigenous People, Native American Indigenous Land Rights and Water rights. No more using water from the Navajo Aquifer and no more coal. LEAVE THE WATER AND THE COAL IN THE GROUND.
  • 4. Preserve Big Mountain as a National Historic Cultural Preservation Site, instead of a National Sacrifice Area!! Change History, Respect Indigenous Traditional People and their Indigenous
    Land. Protect the endangered people, protect the sacred, ancient, Historical Dine Altar for Traditional Dine and Traditional Hopi People.
  • 5. Demilitarize the areas of Big Mountain Communities of resistance on Black Mesa. a) no more armed Hopi Rangers b) no more guns, no arms around the Elders and the children any more c) no more armed BIA in the Big Mountain Resistance Areas d) Lift the ban on wood gathering for
    people
    inside the fence (the resisters) e) open more water wells inside the resistance areas f) freedom from all harassment g) NO MORE OPPRESSION! LIBERATION!!
  • 6. Clean drinking water pumped into the homes of the Dine families who have waited 5 years, along Big Mountain Blvd. whose 3/4 completed after 5 years of waiting.
  • 7. More clean drinking water wells open in the Sovereign Dine Nation inside the fenced areas, and water catchments for livestock for all families.
  • 8. Solar power for all of the families who may choose it for electricity.


These were the requests/demands we gave to Lehman Bros Corporate leaders
on Feb. 26 2001. We are awaiting their response as they received an
“overwhelming” amount of information from us; to stop the suffering at
Big Mountain and to stop Global Impact. In conclusion, everyone is at
stake here with this Global Impact and Global Warming, so its not only
our problem out here at Big Mountain. Lehmen Brothers can make a Big
difference on ending the Global Impact


Its good to know now that all good and honest people are now coming
together from all honest struggles. And now since we came together, now
we’re not gonna stop, we’re not going to rest until we achieve our goals
for dignified Life, Liberty, Liberty, Justice, Freedom for all. For
protecting the Mother Earth against corporate greed. NOW WE MUST COME
TOGETHER AT LEHMEN BROS., MEETING UNITED WITH ONE VOICE ON APRIL 2 RALLY
AT 10 AM AT THREE WORLD FINANCIAL CENTER, NYC AND APRIL 3 LEHMEN BROS.
SHAREHOLDERS MEETING AT THREE WORLD FINANCIAL CENTER AT 10 AM IN NYC!


In closing to all the Brothers and Sisters, hopefully you will join us
in New York, if you can’t make it, then pray for us. And if we come
together as a united effort then we can make it different for the people
that are in Resistance, not only for the people at Big Mountain, but for
all the displaced people or people who don’t have anything. We are
resistors so other brothers and sisters can live, meaning of course
indigenous people. If we can come together and shout at the “Beast” so
the “beast” can TREMBLE. We are not going to stop here, we will not stop
until the people are free. Not only at Big Mountain but for everywhere
the people need to live. So were not saying that we are the only one.
This is for everybody and all living things that live from air and
water. we invite you to come and stand with us that way we know we are
not alone in our own world. Your invitation to NYC is open. Please come
of your own free will if you believe in these things, then we can come
together and make a difference for the Indigenous People and for all
Humanity. So we can free ourselves, if we can continue to heal our
history here. So its time to change corporate relations toward
Indigenous People, its time to respect and honor and give back to the
Earth and the Original People. Freedom and Justice for All Respectfully,
Leonard Benally for further info: weavingfree@hotmail.com If you can’t
