Seceding From the States?

Question by jpc8015: Seceding from the States?
Did anybody hear about the Lakota Indian Tribe wanting to disolve their treaties with the federal government and set up their own country? Is this a good idea for them? How would they manage without federal aid for everything from “cultural centers” to drug and alcohol rehabilitation? At some point would we need to go and forcibly take their land back from them in order to save them from themselves? What would the consequences be, could we then take away their status as a soveirgn nation and not give them treaties?

Well, considering the living conditions on reservations, I don’t see how they were be losing much if they declared their own country.

Drug Rehabilitation Centers: Violence is Not the Solution



Venta needed treatment for his drug problem. Instead, he was tortured. In all corners of the world, people who use drugs are forcibly detained in “rehabilitation” centers where they may be subjected to beatings, forced labor, medical experimentation, denial of basic health care (including evidence-based drug treatment), and other severe human rights violations. Like Venta, thousands of people throughout Southeast Asia are locked away in so-called drug rehabilitation centers where they are regularly beaten, abused, and denied access to medical care. The Campaign to Stop Torture in Health Care is working worldwide to put an end to human rights violations and abuses in health care settings. Join the campaign: www.stoptortureinhealthcare.org
