The Indigenous Mapping Network is a group of Indigenous Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping technicians that help native organizations, governments, and small non profits create compelling maps that affect policy.

They'll have a conference in June in Washington. That looks interesting.

If you want to learn about community mapping tools, or need some GIS analysis done. Then contact the group.

With my feet twisting in the mud of a frigid river, I have already lost the festive socks that were a Christmas gift from my mom. Now the river bottom is turning to quicksand beneath my bare feet.

At GRAIN, we are extremely concerned that today's global land grab is only going to make the food crisis worse. For it pushes an agriculture geared toward large scale monocultures, GMOs, throwing farmers off the land in favour of machines, and lots of chemicals and fossil fuels. This is not an agriculture that will feed everyone. It's an agriculture that feeds speculative profits for a few and more poverty for the rest. Of course we need investment.
