SHANGHAI, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao met here Sunday with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and both sides vowed to enhance their bilateral relations.
Wen said the China-Hungary relations have stood the test and developed smoothly since the two countries established diplomatic ties.
China will make joint efforts with Hungary to promote the bilateral trade in a balanced and sustainable manner and enhance exchanges and friendship so as to turn on a new page in bilateral relations, Wen said.
Orban is here for the opening ceremony of the World Expo Summit Forum and the closing ceremony of the Shanghai Expo.
He said Hungary has always adhered to the one-China policy and is willing to increase political mutual trust, expand trade and economic cooperation, strengthen cultural exchanges with China so as to push forward the Hungary-China and Europe-China relations.
Edit Miklós (21), the athlete of Brasso Dinamo representing Romania at the Vancouver Winter Olympics received her Hungarian citizenship and will continue her career in Hungary reported kronika.ro.
“I don't want to compete for Romania anymore. In Hungary I've found support and peace and the training conditions are very good,” said the athlete.
Edit Miklós has been competing in World Cup events since 2008, but she has a rocky relationship with the Romanian Ski Federation.
“Three years ago they told me that my Austrian coach Jürgen Albel that I hired on my own expenses, can accompany me to the Vancouver Winter Olympics. They didn't keep their words,” said the athlete. She suffered a serious accident in Vancouver and had to be taken to hospital.
The International Ski Federation has residency requirements. Athletes can compete for their newly chosen countries if they reside in the chosen country for no less than two years. However, the Federation can disregard these conditions at any time.
“We are a bit bewildered about this rule,”said the head of the Hungarian Ski Federation, Klára Kaszó. “We've already sent a letter to the International Ski Federation notifying officials about Edit Miklós Hungarian citizenship...but we think that the approval of Romanian sport officials would be helpful,” said Klára Kaszó.
Puiu Gaşpar, the head of FRSB didn't comment on the matter. He said “We don't deal with these sorts of issues until we receive an official request from a foreign club or federation,” said the Romanian official.
However, Klára Kaszó pointed out that they have already sent a letter to their Romanian counterpart and already got a reply. In it they said, if we pay they won't oppose the athlete’s decision to change country said Klára Kaszó.
However, we don't have the money they have asked said Klára Kaszó. I already told to Edit that there was a possibility that she might has to skip a year because of the dispute.

Speaking at a news-conference, Krisztina Morvai and Tamás Gaudy Nagy said they were mystified about the Stalinist style smear campaign that has been going on in several Fidesz media against György Budaházy and human rights activists defending the victims of the Gyurcsany regime.
The two distinguished human rights activists argued that the ongoing disinformation campaign against Budaházy is quite similar to the propaganda wars of the Stalinist Rakosi regime that the bolsheviks employed against their opponents before arresting and executing them.
During the Rakosi regime activists' arrests usually started with a preliminary propaganda campaign This was a pattern then, and the campaign itself was an indication that in the subsequent step the arrest of the target individual followed. It seems that Fidesz took a page from the Stalinist solutions and now, using the recipes for its own purposes.
The shocking changes in Fidesz strategy have been attributed to the fact that since September 11, 2001, the American administration has bee pressing allied governments to setup anti terrorist agencies to fight “terrorist threats”. As expected, Fidesz caved in to the pressure and right now, the government is in the process of preparing a fabricated criminal case with the help of police and the justice system that would be used to justify the creation of the brand new anti-terrorist agency that was setup a few weeks ago.
As Krisztina Morvai humorously remarked, agents of the new department have found no terrorists so far, only a couple of car thieves but surely, if they search hard enough they might find terrorists as well. (Note: They might perhaps even find Bin Laden who miraculously still capable of transmitting his hilarious messages to world audiences out of his grave in the Tora Bora mountains.)
Krisztina Morvai warned that a new law is in the drafting stage; when ready, it will allow law-enforcement agencies to monitor telephone conversations and search the homes of “suspected terrorists” without warrants. The new law will likely be based on the American “Homeland Security Act”, the most chilling outline of post-democratic societies to date.
The two human rights activists pointed out that current changes in Fidesz strategy makes the work of human rights activists more relevant then before.
Krisztina Morvai has written an open letter to the readers and viewers of Magyar Nemzet and Hir TV, the two media outlets that leading the charge against Budaházy. In the letter, she is reminding Fidesz supporters of the lies and deceits inherent in the messages, by drawing her readers' attention to the fact that the lawyers of the “Foundation for Legal Defence of Hungarians Rights” fought for issues that Fidesz supporters also found important during the rule of the illegitimate Gyurcsany regime.
Krisztina Morvai and Tamás Gaudi Nagy also revealed that Robert F., one of the key witnesses of the prosecution in the Budaházy case withdrew his damning testimony because he confessed under duress; this is one of the latest signs indicating that the Budaházy case is a complete fabrication and the court has no evidence against the accused other than the shaky testimonies of police informers that perhaps cooperating with police solely for financial reasons (though this has never been admitted but so far, no one explained what happened with the handsome reward offered by police for information leading to the arrest of individuals perpetrated the crime).
Krisztina Morvai's open letter to the readers and viewers of Magyar Nemzet and Hir TV
Morvai Krisztina nyílt levele
Kedves Magyar Nemzet és Magyar Hírlap olvasók, Hír TV és Echo TV nézők!
Az elmúlt nyolc év során tisztességes magyar emberek, családok ezrei tapasztalták meg, hogy mit jelent egyik pillanatról a másikra kiszolgáltatottá és jogfosztottá válni a hatalom visszaéléseivel szemben.
E tapasztalatok mélypontját a 2006. őszi rendőri brutalitások, sorozatban indított koncepciós jellegű büntetőeljárások és önkényes bebörtönzések jelentették, de a megfélemlítés jellegzetes eszköze volt a Medgyessy-Gyurcsány-Bajnai kormányok gaztettei elleni tüntetések jogellenes feloszlatása, a politikai szabadságjogaikat (vélemény-nyilvánítási jogukat, gyülekezési jogukat) gyakorlók tömeges rendőri megalázása, fogdákba zárása.
A népnyúzó hatalom célja az volt, hogy az emberek tömeges megfélemlítésével, a tiltakozás elfojtásával – sokszor vérbefojtásával – elérje, hogy senki ne merjen szembeszállni a diktátorokkal, senki ne merjen ellenállást gyakorolni az elnyomással és az ország gazdasági kifosztásával szemben.
Az, hogy ez az aljas terv nem sikerülhetett, hogy a hamis bizonyítékok kreálásával százszámra indított büntetőeljárásokat sorra kénytelenek voltak megszűntetni, az önkényesen bebörtönzötteket sorra kénytelenek voltak szabadon engedni, nagyban köszönhető a lelkiismeretes és az emberi jogok iránt elkötelezett jogászoknak, jogvédőknek, akik igen sokat kockáztatva a jogfosztottak oldalára álltak.
Ki kell emelni a Zétényi Zsolt és Gaudi-Nagy Tamás által vezetett Nemzeti Jogvédő Szolgálatot, amelynek munkatársai sok száz ügyben harcoltak "az utolsó paragrafusig" a jogfosztottak, és végső soron az egész magyar nemzet méltóságának, jogainak és szabadságának visszaállításáért.
Az ötvenes éveket idéző koncepciós eljárások megszűntetésén, a bebörtönzöttek szabadon bocsátásának elérésén, a tüntetések feloszlatása jogellenességének megállapításán túlmenően elérték, hogy a meghurcoltakat komoly összegű kártérítésben volt kénytelen részesíteni az állam. A nemzeti jogvédők – élükön Gaudi-Nagy Tamás ügyvéddel, jogvédővel– minden túlzás nélkül többet tettek a magyarok szabadságáért, a jogállamiságért és az emberi jogokért, mint a rendszerváltást követő összes politikus együttvéve. A Szolgálat egyébként a vörösiszap katasztrófát követően is azonnal felajánlotta ingyenes jogi segítségét a bajbajutottaknak.
Éppen ezért érthetetlen és megdöbbentő az a rágalom kampány, amely a nemzeti sajtóban, médiában indult a jogvédők ellen, így Gaudi és jómagam ellen. Ezt az sem indokolhatja, hogy a 2006. évi jogsértések feltárása során a FIDESZ többségű parlamenti vizsgálóbizottságban végig a tények és a felelősség sokkal komolyabb feltárása, Gyurcsány és bűntársai jogos börtönbe juttatása érdekében harcoltunk, hiszen ezt nem a magyar emberek ellenében, hanem az ő akaratukat kifejezve tettük.
Nem indokolhatja az ellenünk indult támadásokat az sem, hogy a tőlünk megszokott következetes nemzeti jogvédő szemlélettel állunk ki a másfél éve börtönben lévő, fogvatartotti és büntetőeljárási jogaitól szinte teljességgel megfosztott Budaházy György és a Hunnia csoport más tagjai mellett. Aki – vagy akinek a hozzátartója – már volt börtönben a hatalom által összetákolt koncepciós eljárás kapcsán, hamis bizonyítékok alapján (például az ötvenes években vagy akár 2006 őszén), az pontosan fel tudja mérni a jogvédők és a jogvédelem jelentőségét.
Tisztázzuk: Budaházy Györgyöt lehet szeretni vagy nem szeretni. Ugyanakkor tény, hogy 2002. óta a hatalom 13 ízben indított ellene büntetőeljárást politikai tevékenysége miatt. Hol azért állt bíróság előtt, mert a 2002. évi elcsalt választások szavazatainak újraszámolását követelte – a FIDESZ győzelme érdekében! – az Erzsébet hídon, hol azért, mert a Szabadság téri "szovjet hősi emlékműről" eltávolította a diktatúra szimbólumát, hol azért, mert az EU csatlakozásunk megalázó feltételei ellen tiltakozott, vagy éppen lelkesítő írásokban bíztatott Gyurcsányék elkergetésére. (Az utóbbi miatt nemrégiben kapott egy év felfüggesztett szabadságvesztést állam elleni bűncselekmény előkészülete minősítéssel.)
Nem mellesleg ő volt az, aki a Hunnia csoport más tagjaival együtt feltárta a sukorói ingatlanbotrányt és számos más korrupciós ügyet. Jogunk és alapunk van feltételezni, hogy a jelenlegi eljárás a politikai bosszúállás egy újabb fejezete, hiszen az ügyben folytatott házkutatások, lefoglalások és egyéb nyomozati cselekmények az ÁVH korszakát idézik. Kérem, hogy erről személyesen győződjenek meg, megtekintve honlapomon a Guantanamo Magyarországon? című rövidfilmet. (www.morvaikrisztina.hu)
Még inkább indokolja a jogvédők "fedélzeten maradását" az a tény, hogy Magyarország amerikai nyomásra egyre nagyobb szerepet vállal a "terrorellenes háború" egyszerre humoros, szánalmas és szomorú folytatásában. Ennek keretében ma már nem "csupán" magyar katonáinkat küldjük idegen érdekekért meghalni a világ másik végére, de idehaza is a nem létező terroristák költséges és bizarr kergetésébe fogtunk.
E célból nyílt meg hatalmas létszámmal és költségvetéssel a "terrorelhárító központ", amely eddig ugyan csak autótolvajokat fogott, de ekkora pénzért, ilyen sok emberrel nyilván addig keresi Osama Bin Láden magyar követőit, amíg nem talál belőlük.
Ennek előmozdítására a kormány most terjesztette az Országgyűlés elé azt a megdöbbentő új jogszabályt, amelynek keretében gyakorlatilag bárkinek a telefonbeszélgetése lehallgatható, lakása átkutatható lesz a "terrorizmus megelőzése" jelszavával. Kérem Önöket, bíztassák kedvenc lapjaikat és tv-csatornáikat, hogy akadályozzuk meg a totális ellenőrzés rendszerének kiépítését, mielőtt a saját lakásunkba rontanának be a terrorelhárítók.
Ne felejtsük el, hogy a nemzetbiztonság, a rendőrség és az igazságszolgáltatás egyaránt tele van a Gyurcsányhoz hű, a Gyurcsány rendszer restaurálásában, illetve a globalizáció és a bankok rémuralmának fenntartásában érdekelt elemekkel, akik köztudomásúan semmitől nem riadnak vissza. Ne hagyjuk, hogy kedvenc műsorvezetőink – szinte az ötvenes évekbe történő időutazásként – a "futballabdába töltött robbanóanyagon" sopánkodjanak, s Budaházy-t véljék felismerni egy autóban, ahol csupa felismerhetetlen ember ül, illetve a nemzeti jogvédőket gyalázzák, miközben a nemzet megmaradása és az emberi jogok megmaradása szempontjából életveszélyes dolgok zajlanak az országban.
Kérem, hogy ne felejtsék el az elmúlt nyolc év jogfosztásainak tapasztalatait, s azt sem, hogy az azokat megvalósító rendőrök, ügyészek, bírók a helyükön maradtak, s Gyurcsány a Parlamentben ülve illetve új mozgalmat indítva készül hatalma restaurálására. (Szintén honlapomon lehet csatlakozni a 2006-os jogsértésekben illetve a pártállamban vezető szerepet játszott ügyészek és bírók eltávolítását követelő petícióhoz!) Ilyen körülmények között a nemzeti jogvédelem és a nemzeti jogvédők szerepe ugyanolyan fontos, mint az elmúlt nyolc évben volt.
Kérem, ne hagyják, hogy a nemzeti újságok és televíziós csatornák folytassák az ellenünk indított lejárató kampányt, amelynek egyenes következménye lehet az elmúlt nyolc év jogfosztottságának és megaláztatásainak folytatódása azzal a különbséggel, hogy már nem lesz, aki kiálljon a magyarok emberi jogaiért. Kérem, hogy ezzel kapcsolatos gondolataikat – párthovatartozástól függetlenül – írják meg az érintett újságok szerkesztőségeinek és nekem: email@example.com.

The corrupt court that regularly acquits gypsy criminals including murderers, has sentenced Samu Tamás Gergő (24), Jobbik member of parliament to one year suspended jail term and three hundred thousand forint fine for disorderly conduct.
On March 15th 2008, during the reign of the Gyurcsany regime, the accused took part in the March 15th celebration rally; riot police charged the crowd, Samu threw an object to the police officer and kicked one of the officers' shield as state terrorists indiscriminately charged the celebrating crowd.
While the persecution of patriots that fought against the illegitimate Gyurcsany regime and his gang of criminals continues, none of the real criminals have been investigated yet for their eight years of rampage.

The new recruits swore in in front of the replica of the Holy Crown at the monument of “Szabolcs Vezér” near Földvár. Members of the new recruits lined up in a military formation in front of a stage where the replica of the Holy Crown was displayed.
On the stage, István Ágoston read a message from the grandmaster of the “Magyarok Nagyasszonya Szent Korona” Order, dr. Bakos Batu; then, the text of the oath was read that the new recruits repeated word for word.
At the end of the ceremony, the new recruits marched in front of their superiors lined up on stage and laid flowers at the Second World War Monument.
(Notes: The “Nemzeti Őrsereg” is a paramilitary style heritage association. It was founded in Szabolcs-Szatmár county in 2007. The name came from the revolutionary force called “Nemzetőrség” set up by the Hungarian parliament in 1848, during the war of independence against the Habsburgs. Members of the “Nemzeti Őrsereg” adopted a military style uniform as their distinctive dress. “Nemzeti Őrsereg” doesn't associate itself with any political party but the organization keeps good relations with the Hungarian National Guard and Jobbik)

“There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lives ; there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe…violent conflicts will dominate the headlines……” A ‘perpetual war for perpetual peace’ …’ Wolfowitz and Perle in the preamble of the draft of the ‘Project for the New American Century’ in the heady days in 1992,when the Soviet Union had been subverted at its very top. The ‘ New World Order’ demands the control and seizure of oil and mineral resources and markets of every country by military force or through proxy governments and comprador elites, camouflaged as ‘ Globalisation’; preceded by subversion of targeted countries. Hence the new colonial project is unprecedented on a historical scale within countries and societies,and overseas.

Gábor Vona spent the National Holiday among Hungarians living in the Cleveland area, the region with the largest Hungarian population in the United States; he visited the Hungarian Heritage Museum, laid flowers at Lajos Kossuth memorial and at the monument of the 1956 revolution.
On Sunday, he delivered a speech in the Hungarian Reformed Church drawing attention to the positive message of the 1956 revolution. The blood that was spilled during the uprising laid the foundation of a brighter future.
Hungarians have a lot to be proud of; future generations have to be thought to appreciate their culture more,” said Vona.
In his speech, he stressed the importance of harmony and unity among Hungarians around the world; only a united country can overcome its problems said Vona.

Hir TV aired a leaked video that supposed to prove that the “Magyarok Nyilai” terrorist organization led by György Budaházy is indeed perpetrated several violent acts, among others firebombed socialist politicians' properties and assaulted a talk show host.
Take a look at the video and ask yourself, what can this piece of evidence possibly prove. Tamás Gaudi Nagy, Budaházy's lawyer said there is not a single shred of evidence against his client. The video probably released by the corrupt court in agreement with law-enforcement agencies proving once again that they have nothing against the accused other than the unreliable “confessions” of police informers – dubious evidence. This explains the urgency by which authorities keep manufacturing "evidences" even after the investigation was closed.
This is not the first time that fake evidence was introduced into the case. A year ago, Tibor Draskovics, the minister of justice in the Gyurcsany government showed an explosion video that a few hours later turned out to be a fake. It was the work of high school students experimented with a chemical process learned in chemistry class.
This is the recap of the video. The scene is a parking lot. The shadowy figures are terrorists (grin) exchanging explosives hidden in a ball. Budahazy is sitting in one of the cars. How do we know this? Because we were told by those who made the video – police. This is supposedly a surveillance video made by police, which makes the “evidence” even more suspicious. Police usually make better quality surveillance videos than this.
The story reminds me of another fairy tale, I heard when I was a pupil in Hungary. We discussed the ramifications of the 1956 revolution that in the communist era was called counter-revolution. Our history teacher told us that in 1956 the enemy infiltrated into the ranks of the working class by using incredible tricks. He told us that agents of the bourgeoisie camouflaging themselves as scuba-divers swam from Germany all the way down to Hungary in the frozen Danube to obtain information from traitors of the working class.
Believe it or not during the Rakosi era (right after the second world war) courts used these sorts of fairy tales as evidence and convicted innocent people to long prison terms, sometimes even to death.
If you think this is a joke think again. Communism didn't appear out of the blue, but it was a well-planned global experiment. The methods that the bolsheviks developed in the past sixty years are already in use in many parts of the world. Think of Guantánamo or Iraq. I'm sure you can add your own instances to the list. But this is another story altogether.
At this point, let's just hope that those times won't come back, the court throws this piece of “evidence” out and free all political prisoners. On the other hand, I have to confess that I have little faith in the system and I fear that regardless of the evidence the political prisoners will be convicted because shadowy interest groups want that. In that case, we can kiss goodbye even to the illusion of democracy.

The following speech was given by Russell Means in July 1980, before several thousand people who had assembled from all over the world for the Black Hills International Survival Gathering, in the Black Hills of South Dakota. It is Russell Means's most famous speech.
"The only possible opening for a statement of this kind is that I detest writing. The process itself epitomizes the European concept of "legitimate" thinking; what is written has an importance that is denied the spoken. My culture, the Lakota culture, has an oral tradition, so I ordinarily reject writing. It is one of the white world's ways of destroying the cultures of non-European peoples, the imposing of an abstraction over the spoken relationship of a people.
So what you read here is not what I've written. It's what I've said and someone else has written down. I will allow this because it seems that the only way to communicate with the white world is through the dead, dry leaves of a book. I don't really care whether my words reach whites or not. They have already demonstrated through their history that they cannot hear, cannot see; they can only read (of course, there are exceptions, but the exceptions only prove the rule). I'm more concerned with American Indian people, students and others, who have begun to be absorbed into the white world through universities and other institutions. But even then it's a marginal sort of concern. It's very possible to grow into a red face with a white mind; and if that's a person's individual choice, so be it, but I have no use for them. This is part of the process of cultural genocide being waged by Europeans against American Indian peoples' today. My concern is with those American Indians who choose to resist this genocide, but who may be confused as to how to proceed.
(You notice I use the term American Indian rather than Native American or Native indigenous people or Amerindian when referring to my people. There has been some controversy about such terms, and frankly, at this point, I find it absurd. Primarily it seems that American Indian is being rejected as European in origin--which is true. But all the above terms are European in origin; the only non-European way is to speak of Lakota--or, more precisely, of Oglala, Brule, etc.--and of the Dineh, the Miccousukee, and all the rest of the several hundred correct tribal names.
(There is also some confusion about the word Indian, a mistaken belief that it refers somehow to the country, India. When Columbus washed up on the beach in the Caribbean, he was not looking for a country called India. Europeans were calling that country Hindustan in 1492. Look it up on the old maps. Columbus called the tribal people he met "Indio," from the Italian in dio, meaning "in God.")
It takes a strong effort on the part of each American Indian not to become Europeanized. The strength for this effort can only come from the traditional ways, the traditional values that our elders retain. It must come from the hoop, the four directions, the relations: it cannot come from the pages of a book or a thousand books. No European can ever teach a Lakota to be Lakota, a Hopi to be Hopi. A master's degree in "Indian Studies" or in "education" or in anything else cannot make a person into a human being or provide knowledge into traditional ways. It can only make you into a mental European, an outsider.
I should be clear about something here, because there seems to be some confusion about it. When I speak of Europeans or mental Europeans, I'm not allowing for false distinctions. I'm not saying that on the one hand there are the by-products of a few thousand years of genocidal, reactionary, European intellectual development which is bad; and on the other hand there is some new revolutionary intellectual development which is good. I'm referring here to the so-called theories of Marxism and anarchism and "leftism" in general. I don't believe these theories can be separated from the rest of the of the European intellectual tradition. It's really just the same old song.
The process began much earlier. Newton, for example, "revolutionized" physics and the so-called natural sciences by reducing the physical universe to a linear mathematical equation. Descartes did the same thing with culture. John Locke did it with politics, and Adam Smith did it with economics. Each one of these "thinkers" took a piece of the spirituality of human existence and converted it into code, an abstraction. They picked up where Christianity ended: they "secularized" Christian religion, as the "scholars" like to say--and in doing so they made Europe more able and ready to act as an expansionist culture. Each of these intellectual revolutions served to abstract the European mentality even further, to remove the wonderful complexity and spirituality from the universe and replace it with a logical sequence: one, two, three. Answer!
This is what has come to be termed "efficiency" in the European mind. Whatever is mechanical is perfect; whatever seems to work at the moment--that is, proves the mechanical model to be the right one--is considered correct, even when it is clearly untrue. This is why "truth" changes so fast in the European mind; the answers which result from such a process are only stopgaps, only temporary, and must be continuously discarded in favor of new stopgaps which support the mechanical models and keep them (the models) alive.
Hegel and Marx were heirs to the thinking of Newton, Descartes, Locke and Smith. Hegel finished the process of secularizing theology--and that is put in his own terms--he secularized the religious thinking through which Europe understood the universe. Then Marx put Hegel's philosophy in terms of "materialism," which is to say that Marx despiritualized Hegel's work altogether. Again, this is in Marx' own terms. And this is now seen as the future revolutionary potential of Europe. Europeans may see this as revolutionary, but American Indians see it simply as still more of that same old European conflict between being and gaining. The intellectual roots of a new Marxist form of European imperialism lie in Marx'--and his followers'--links to the tradition of Newton, Hegel and the others.
Being is a spiritual proposition. Gaining is a material act. Traditionally, American Indians have always attempted to be the best people they could. Part of that spiritual process was and is to give away wealth, to discard wealth in order not to gain. Material gain is an indicator of false status among traditional people, while it is "proof that the system works" to Europeans. Clearly, there are two completely opposing views at issue here, and Marxism is very far over to the other side from the American Indian view. But let's look at a major implication of this; it is not merely an intellectual debate.
The European materialist tradition of despiritualizing the universe is very similar to the mental process which goes into dehumanizing another person. And who seems most expert at dehumanizing other people? And why? Soldiers who have seen a lot of combat learn to do this to the enemy before going back into combat. Murderers do it before going out to commit murder. Nazi SS guards did it to concentration camp inmates. Cops do it. Corporation leaders do it to the workers they send into uranium mines and steel mills. Politicians do it to everyone in sight. And what the process has in common for each group doing the dehumanizing is that it makes it all right to kill and otherwise destroy other people. One of the Christian commandments says, "Thou shalt not kill," at least not humans, so the trick is to mentally convert the victims into nonhumans. Then you can proclaim violation of your own commandment as a virtue.
In terms of the despiritualization of the universe, the mental process works so that it becomes virtuous to destroy the planet. Terms like progress and development are used as cover words here, the way victory and freedom are used to justify butchery in the dehumanization process. For example, a real-estate speculator may refer to "developing" a parcel of ground by opening a gravel quarry; development here means total, permanent destruction, with the earth itself removed. But European logic has gained a few tons of gravel with which more land can be "developed" through the construction of road beds. Ultimately, the whole universe is open--in the European view--to this sort of insanity.
Most important here, perhaps, is the fact that Europeans feel no sense of loss in all this. After all, their philosophers have despiritualized reality, so there is no satisfaction (for them) to be gained in simply observing the wonder of a mountain or a lake or a people in being. No, satisfaction is measured in terms of gaining material. So the mountain becomes gravel, and the lake becomes coolant for a factory, and the people are rounded up for processing through the indoctrination mills Europeans like to call schools.
But each new piece of that "progress" ups the ante out in the real world. Take fuel for the industrial machine as an example. Little more than two centuries ago, nearly everyone used wood--a replenishable, natural item--as fuel for the very human needs of cooking and staying warm. Along came the Industrial Revolution and coal became the dominant fuel, as production became the social imperative for Europe. Pollution began to become a problem in the cities, and the earth was ripped open to provide coal whereas wood had always simply been gathered or harvested at no great expense to the environment. Later, oil became the major fuel, as the technology of production was perfected through a series of scientific "revolutions." Pollution increased dramatically, and nobody yet knows what the environmental costs of pumping all that oil out of the ground will really be in the long run. Now there's an "energy crisis," and uranium is becoming the dominant fuel.
Capitalists, at least, can be relied upon to develop uranium as fuel only at the rate which they can show a good profit. That's their ethic, and maybe they will buy some time. Marxists, on the other hand, can be relied upon to develop uranium fuel as rapidly as possible simply because it's the most "efficient" production fuel available. That's their ethic, and I fail to see where it's preferable. Like I said, Marxism is right smack in the middle of European tradition. It's the same old song.
There's a rule of thumb which can be applied here. You cannot judge the real nature of a European revolutionary doctrine on the basis of the changes it proposes to make within the European power structure and society. You can only judge it by the effects it will have on non-European peoples. This is because every revolution in European history has served to reinforce Europe's tendencies and abilities to export destruction to other peoples, other cultures and the environment itself. I defy anyone to point out an example where this is not true.
So now we, as American Indian people, are asked to believe that a "new" European revolutionary doctrine such as Marxism will reverse the negative effects of European history on us. European power relations are to be adjusted once again, and that's supposed to make things better for all of us. But what does this really mean?
Right now, today, we who live on the Pine Ridge Reservation are living in what white society has designated a "National Sacrifice Area." What this means is that we have a lot of uranium deposits here, and white culture (not us) needs this uranium as energy production material. The cheapest, most efficient way for industry to extract and deal with the processing of this uranium is to dump the waste by-products right here at the digging sites. Right here where we live. This waste is radioactive and will make the entire region uninhabitable forever. This is considered by the industry, and by the white society that created this industry, to be an "acceptable" price to pay for energy resource development. Along the way they also plan to drain the water table under this part of South Dakota as part of the industrial process, so the region becomes doubly uninhabitable. The same sort of thing is happening down in the land of the Navajo and Hopi, up in the land of the Northern Cheyenne and Crow, and elsewhere. Thirty percent of the coal in the West and half of the uranium deposits in the United States have been found to lie under reservation land, so there is no way this can be called a minor issue.
We are resisting being turned into a National Sacrifice Area. We are resisting being turned into a national sacrifice people. The costs of this industrial process are not acceptable to us. It is genocide to dig uranium here and drain the water table--no more, no less.
Now let's suppose that in our resistance to extermination we begin to seek allies (we have). Let's suppose further that we were to take revolutionary Marxism at its word: that it intends nothing less than the complete overthrow of the European capitalists order which has presented this threat to our very existence. This would seem to be a natural alliance for American Indian people to enter into. After all, as the Marxists say, it is the capitalists who set us up to be a national sacrifice. This is true as far as it goes.
But, as I've tried to point out, this "truth" is very deceptive. Revolutionary Marxism is committed to even further perpetuation and perfection of the very industrial process which is destroying us all. It offers only to "redistribute" the results--the money, maybe--of this industrialization to a wider section of the population. It offers to take wealth from the capitalists and pass it around; but in order to do so, Marxism must maintain the industrial system. Once again, the power relations within European society will have to be altered, but once again the effects upon American Indian peoples here and non-Europeans elsewhere will remain the same. This is much the same as when power was redistributed from the church to private business during the so-called bourgeois revolution. European society changed a bit, at least superficially, but its conduct toward non-Europeans continued as before. You can see what the American Revolution of 1776 did for American Indians. It's the same old song. song.
Revolutionary Marxism, like industrial society in other forms, seeks to "rationalize" all people in relation to industry--maximum industry, maximum production. It is a doctrine that despises the American Indian spiritual tradition, our cultures, our lifeways. Marx himself called us "precapitalists" and "primitive." Precapitalist simply means that, in his view, we would eventually discover capitalism and become capitalists; we have always been economically retarded in Marxist terms. The only manner in which American Indian people could participate in a Marxist revolution would be to join the industrial system, to become factory workers, or "proletarians," as Marx called them. The man was very clear about the fact that his revolution could only occur through the struggle of the proletariat, that the existence of a massive industrial system is a precondition of a successful Marxist society.
I think there's a problem with language here. Christians, capitalists, Marxists. All of them have been revolutionary in their own minds, but none of them really means revolution. What they really mean is continuation. They do what they do in order that European culture can continue to exist and develop according to its needs.
So, in order for us to really join forces with Marxism, we American Indians would have to accept the national sacrifice of our homeland; we would have to commit cultural suicide and become industrialized and Europeanized.
At this point, I've got to stop and ask myself whether I'm being too harsh. Marxism has something of a history. Does this history bear out my observations? I look to the process of industrialization in the Soviet Union since 1920 and I see that these Marxists have done what it took the English Industrial Revolution 300 years to do; and the Marxists did it in 60 years. I see that the territory of the USSR used to contain a number of tribal peoples and that they have been crushed to make way for the factories. The Soviets refer to this as "the National Question," the question of whether the tribal peoples had the right to exist as peoples; and they decided the tribal peoples were an acceptable sacrifice to the industrial needs. I look to China and I see the same thing. I look to Vietnam and I see Marxists imposing an industrial order and rooting out the indigenous tribal mountain people.
I hear the leading Soviet scientist saying that when uranium is exhausted, then alternatives will be found. I see the Vietnamese taking over a nuclear power plant abandoned by the U.S. military. Have they dismantled and destroyed it? No, they are using it. I see China exploding nuclear bombs, developing uranium reactors, and preparing a space program in order to colonize and exploit the planets the same as the Europeans colonized and exploited this hemisphere. It's the same old song, but maybe with a faster tempo this time.
The statement of the Soviet scientist is very interesting. Does he know what this alternative energy source will be? No, he simply has faith. Science will find a way. I hear revolutionary Marxists saying that the destruction of the environment, pollution, and radiation will all be controlled. And I see them act upon their words. Do they know how these things will be controlled? No, they simply have faith. Science will find a way. Industrialization is fine and necessary. How do they know this? Faith. Science will find a way. Faith of this sort has always been known in Europe as religion. Science has become the new European religion for both capitalists and Marxists; they are truly inseparable; they are part and parcel of the same culture. So, in both theory and practice, Marxism demands that non-European peoples give up their values, their traditions, their cultural existence altogether. We will all be industrialized science addicts in a Marxist society.
I do not believe that capitalism itself is really responsible for the situation in which American Indians have been declared a national sacrifice. No, it is the European tradition; European culture itself is responsible. Marxism is just the latest continuation of this tradition, not a solution to it. To ally with Marxism is to ally with the very same forces that declare us an acceptable cost.
There is another way. There is the traditional Lakota way and the ways of the American Indian peoples. It is the way that knows that humans do not have the right to degrade Mother Earth, that there are forces beyond anything the European mind has conceived, that humans must be in harmony with all relations or the relations will eventually eliminate the disharmony. A lopsided emphasis on humans by humans--the Europeans' arrogance of acting as though they were beyond the nature of all related things--can only result in a total disharmony and a readjustment which cuts arrogant humans down to size, gives them a taste of that reality beyond their grasp or control and restores the harmony. There is no need for a revolutionary theory to bring this about; it's beyond human control. The nature peoples of this planet know this and so they do not theorize about it. Theory is an abstract; our knowledge is real.
Distilled to its basic terms, European faith--including the new faith in science--equals a belief that man is God. Europe has always sought a Messiah, whether that be the man Jesus Christ or the man Karl Marx or the man Albert Einstein. American Indians know this to be totally absurd. Humans are the weakest of all creatures, so weak that other creatures are willing to give up their flesh that we may live. Humans are able to survive only through the exercise of rationality since they lack the abilities of other creatures to gain food through the use of fang and claw.
But rationality is a curse since it can cause humans to forget the natural order of things in ways other creatures do not. A wolf never forgets his or her place in the natural order. American Indians can. Europeans almost always do. We pray our thanks to the deer, our relations, for allowing us their flesh to eat; Europeans simply take the flesh for granted and consider the deer inferior. After all, Europeans consider themselves godlike in their rationalism and science. God is the Supreme Being; all else must be inferior.
All European tradition, Marxism included, has conspired to defy the natural order of all things. Mother Earth has been abused, the powers have been abused, and this cannot go on forever. No theory can alter that simple fact. Mother Earth will retaliate, the whole environment will retaliate, and the abusers will be eliminated. Things come full circle, back to where they started. That's revolution. And that's a prophecy of my people, of the Hopi people and of other correct peoples.
American Indians have been trying to explain this to Europeans for centuries. But, as I said earlier, Europeans have proven themselves unable to hear. The natural order will win out, and the offenders will die out, the way deer die when they offend the harmony by over-populating a given region. It's only a matter of time until what Europeans call "a major catastrophe of global proportions" will occur. It is the role of American Indian peoples, the role of all natural beings, to survive. A part of our survival is to resist. We resist not to overthrow a government or to take political power, but because it is natural to resist extermination, to survive. We don't want power over white institutions; we want white institutions to disappear. That's revolution.
American Indians are still in touch with these realities--the prophecies, the traditions of our ancestors. We learn from the elders, from nature, from the powers. And when the catastrophe is over, we American Indian peoples will still be here to inhabit the hemisphere. I don't care if it's only a handful living high in the Andes. American Indian people will survive; harmony will be reestablished. That's revolution.
At this point, perhaps I should be very clear about another matter, one which should already be clear as a result of what I've said. But confusion breeds easily these days, so I want to hammer home this point. When I use the term European, I'm not referring to a skin color or a particular genetic structure. What I'm referring to is a mind-set, a worldview that is a product of the development of European culture. People are not genetically encoded to hold this outlook; they are acculturated to hold it. The same is true for American Indians or for the members of any culture.
It is possible for an American Indian to share European values, a European worldview. We have a term for these people; we call them "apples"--red on the outside (genetics) and white on the inside (their values). Other groups have similar terms: Blacks have their "oreos"; Hispanos have "Coconuts" and so on. And, as I said before, there are exceptions to the white norm: people who are white on the outside, but not white inside. I'm not sure what term should be applied to them other than "human beings."
What I'm putting out here is not a racial proposition but a cultural proposition. Those who ultimately advocate and defend the realities of European culture and its industrialism are my enemies. Those who resist it, who struggle against it, are my allies, the allies of American Indian people. And I don't give a damn what their skin color happens to be. Caucasian is the white term for the white race: European is an outlook I oppose.
The Vietnamese Communists are not exactly what you might consider genetic Caucasians, but they are now functioning as mental Europeans. The same holds true for Chinese Communists, for Japanese capitalists or Bantu Catholics or Peter "MacDollar" down at the Navajo Reservation or Dickie Wilson up here at Pine Ridge. There is no racism involved in this, just an acknowledgment of the mind and spirit that make up culture.
In Marxist terms I suppose I'm a "cultural nationalist." I work first with my people, the traditional Lakota people, because we hold a common worldview and share an immediate struggle. Beyond this, I work with other traditional American Indian peoples, again because of a certain commonality in worldview and form of struggle. Beyond that, I work with anyone who has experienced the colonial oppression of Europe and who resists its cultural and industrial totality. Obviously, this includes genetic Caucasians who struggle to resist the dominant norms of European culture. The Irish and the Basques come immediately to mind, but there are many others.
I work primarily with my own people, with my own community. Other people who hold non-European perspectives should do the same. I believe in the slogan, "Trust your brother's vision," although I'd like to add sisters into the bargain. I trust the community and the culturally based vision of all the races that naturally resist industrialization and human extinction. Clearly, individual whites can share in this, given only that they have reached the awareness that continuation of the industrial imperatives of Europe is not a vision, but species suicide. White is one of the sacred colors of the Lakota people--red, yellow, white and black. The four directions. The four seasons. The four periods of life and aging. The four races of humanity. Mix red, yellow, white and black together and you get brown, the color of the fifth race. This is a natural ordering of things. It therefore seems natural to me to work with all races, each with its own special meaning, identity and message.
But there is a peculiar behavior among most Caucasians. As soon as I become critical of Europe and its impact on other cultures, they become defensive. They begin to defend themselves. But I'm not attacking them personally; I'm attacking Europe. In personalizing my observations on Europe they are personalizing European culture, identifying themselves with it. By defending themselves in this context, they are ultimately defending the death culture. This is a confusion which must be overcome, and it must be overcome in a hurry. None of us has energy to waste in such false struggles.
Caucasians have a more positive vision to offer humanity than European culture. I believe this. But in order to attain this vision it is necessary for Caucasians to step outside European culture--alongside the rest of humanity--to see Europe for what it is and what it does.
To cling to capitalism and Marxism and all other "isms" is simply to remain within European culture. There is no avoiding this basic fact. As a fact, this constitutes a choice. Understand that the choice is based on culture, not race. Understand that to choose European culture and industrialism is to choose to be my enemy. And understand that the choice is yours, not mine.
This leads me back to address those American Indians who are drifting through the universities, the city slums, and other European institutions. If you are there to resist the oppressor in accordance with your traditional ways, so be it. I don't know how you manage to combine the two, but perhaps you will succeed. But retain your sense of reality. Beware of coming to believe the white world now offers solutions to the problems it confronts us with. Beware, too, of allowing the words of native people to be twisted to the advantages of our enemies. Europe invented the practice of turning words around on themselves. You need only look to the treaties between American Indian peoples and various European governments to know that this is true. Draw your strength from who you are.
A culture which regularly confuses revolt with resistance, has nothing helpful to teach you and nothing to offer you as a way of life. Europeans have long since lost all touch with reality, if ever they were in touch with who you are as American Indians.
So, I suppose to conclude this, I should state clearly that leading anyone toward Marxism is the last thing on my mind. Marxism is as alien to my culture as capitalism and Christianity are. In fact, I can say I don't think I'm trying to lead anyone toward anything. To some extent I tried to be a "leader," in the sense that the white media like to use that term, when the American Indian Movement was a young organization. This was a result of a confusion I no longer have. You cannot be everything to everyone. I do not propose to be used in such a fashion by my enemies. I am not a leader. I am an Oglala Lakota patriot. That is all I want and all I need to be. And I am very comfortable with who I am."
There are hundreds of articles and publications on the internet or in the written press about the Hungarian patriotic, conservative Movement for a Better Hungary (Jobbik), where the patriotic, conservative party is regularly pictured as an "anti-Roma", "anti-Semitic", or an "extremist" political party. To an objective reader the question will come naturally why a Hungarian political party, with considerably strong representation in the National Parliament is constantly portrayed in such a manner in the press.
It is not our intention to judge the quality of the work of those journalists whose "objective and informative" publications will usually be confined to a simple copy and paste action. The readers will judge themselves.
A current worldwide example of the copy/paste mentality of "journalists" these days, was the 700 major media organisations around the world who all published false information this week concerning the famous Wikileaks organisation web site, which was started by one single blog which has an agenda against that organisation.
The labels that Jobbik has been slandered with are so similar that one might think that there is a Word Document template circulating between the journalists, and where the lazy and not so brave hide behind referring to and quoting from other shady articles that had no single elements of truth in them.
A recent example of this, when journalism yet again hits rock bottom, is the article published in the German publication "Der Spiegel", where it is obvious that the publication is fuelled with some unexplainable hate against Hungarians, imagining Jew and Roma persecutions and a new "nazi-era".
Jobbik.com has already published an article "Frequently Refuted Lies" that is highly recommended to anyone wanting an insight into the so-called "anti-semitism" or "anti-roma" labels. Further exploring the "anti-Roma" issue, especially in recent developments in Europe, it is worth knowing where the expression "Gypsy crime" originates from.
Gipsy crime is a definition already used in Hungarian criminology referring to the predominant commission of certain types of crimes by the Roma (Gypsies).
In the autumn of 2006, in the town of Olaszliszka a mob of gipsy men battered to death Lajos Szögi, a teacher of Tiszavasvár, after the teacher, by accident, peripherally swiped the daughter of one of the gipsy men. The two daughters of the teacher had to witness the murder of their father.
The public uproar about the unspeakable murder was enormous and Jobbik first advocated strict measures on what it called "Gipsy crime". What was at firstcategorised as a "politically incorrect" statement, during the last few years has become widely accepted and already known to the general public about the certain crimes and offenses carried out by the gipsies.
Roma crime -- while governments denyied public debate about the issue -- became such a serious issue that it partly assisted Jobbik to enter Hungarian Parliament for the first time, with 17% in April 2010. It is however important to note that it only partly assisted the success and that this was not because of its anti-Roma message but because of Jobbik's open debate about the problem and Jobbik being the only party that actually offered help to the phenomen.
Jobbik presented the most comprehensive and detailed election manifesto with clear policies from economics and employment to healthcare, agriculture, welfare, education and indeed, Roma issues.
Following the electoral success, the "international" press, of course, was quick to jump on the opportunity to once again echoe the "dangers" and "extreme right wing populism" regarding Jobbik.
However, not only Hungary and not only Jobbik face the unresolved issue of the Roma (gipsy) crime phenomen and of integration into the society. In the summer of 2010 French authorities cracked down on what they called Gipsy crime and Roma (gipsy) camps. President Sarkozy faced critics and condemnation from the European Parliament but defended his government's actions and continued the deportation of Roma from France.
While some are still burying their head in the sand, more and more have recognised that the Roma-gipsy issue can only be dealt with at European level and that only an honest, open debate about the existing Roma crime can achieve results.
In Italy, Roma camps were established and in use for years after Italian public demanded a crack down on Gipsy crime, following a murder of an Italian woman in Rome. What is already in practice in parts of Western Europe for years, can be implemented in Hungary in theory too.
That was the idea of Jobbik and MEP Csanad Szegedi when at a press conference in September 2010 they stated their intention of creating "Public Order Detention Settlements" where serious, recommitting criminals would be enforced to live and rehabilitate.
Furthermore, Jobbik advocated the introduction of compulsory boarding schools, where children from neglected backgrounds -- e.g. gipsy families -- would be given a chance to attend full-time. In exchange of child benefits, they would be provided with food and accomodation in a clean, supporting environment.
While only Jobbik has a clear and potent proposal for the resolution of the Gipsy issues as described in their policies, liberal conservative Fidesz distanced itself from Jobbik and its Public Order Detention Settlements and boarding schools. Interestengly enough, Fidesz was not so vehement in distancing itself from their own allies in the EPP (European People's Party), from Sarkozy's UMP or Berlusconi's PdL. Displaying a bit more courage in the Hungarian Parliament than in the European, Viktor Orban, Hungary's PM and Fidesz leader refused to accept such terms as Gipsy crime, stating that "I can not accept such terminology as Gipsy crime. There is only human dignity."
Embarrassingly, PM Orban seemed to have forgotten his Fidesz organised "National Consultation" tour in June, after the successful elections. Attila Lakatos, Borsod county's Gypsy Voivod (leader) honestly and openly confronted PM Orban and Interior Pinter about the truth at one of the Fidesz meetings. So much of a "National Consultation", isn't it, Mr Orban?
So does Gypsy crime exist or not?
The ban on Jobbik's political broadcast in the run-up to the municipal election may also give us the answer. Hungarian State Television (MTV) and State Radio (MR) firstly banned the broadcast due to the term "Gypsy crime".
But in a milestone decision, the OVB (National Electoral Committee) and the Supreme Court overturned the ban. The Supreme Court's decision can be seen as establishing in case law, de jure, that the phrase "gypsy crime" is NOT illegal.
If legal jargon is not convincing, let's hear it from Gypsy Voivod Attila Lakatos in his own words at the Fidesz event.

Supporters of György Budaházy are staging a hunger strike in front of the Kozma street penitentiary. According to sources on the ground, the mood is good among the protesters.
Gyula Zagyva and Tamás Gaudi Nagy, Jobbik members of parliament are also among the protesters.
Budaházy's mother is also on the scene participating in the hunger strike.
Behind the prison walls, György Budaházy and two more political prisoners joined the hunger strike.
The official celebration on Kossuth square ended; after the prime minister left the stage there was some excitement as a couple raised a placard demanding freedom for the political prisoners.
Jobbik official celebrations at Deák tér ended. Krisztina Morvai, Zoltán Balczó and Levente Murányi were among the invited speakers. Gábor Vona, who is in the United States sent a video message.
According to barikad.hu, police are harassing church goers and making identity checks on members of “Szebb Jövőért Polgárőr Egyesület”.
According to reports, members of Forza Nuova, an Italian patriotic organization, will stage a solidarity demonstration in front of the Hungarian embassy in Milano demanding the release of political prisoners.
Thousands demonstrated in front of the Kozma street penitentiary demanding the release of political prisoners; among them, Krisztina Morvai, Lóránt Hegedűs, Gyula Zagyva and László Toroczkai. They all talked about the failure of Fidesz and the justice system to pardon and serve justice for those arrested by the criminal Gyurcsany regime.
Krisztina Morvai said numerous biased judges have been working in the justice system; she will soon distribute a documentary video among judges to draw attention to the widespread partiality in the justice system.
Gyula Zagyva talked about the restrictive measures taken against Budaházy in recent weeks. For instance, prison officials made it much harder for members of parliament to visit the political prisoners.
Toroczkai said they will continue their struggle until all political prisoners will be freed.
Minister Lóránt Hegedűs said we cannot run into a brick wall because we are already there. Jobbik should stay on the current path and resist any temptation to change course said Minister Hegedűs.
