Demand that Sheriff Kirchmeier and all other law enforcement in North Dakota respect the human rights of people opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline. Demilitarize, deescalate and do not use excessive force. Indigenous rights are human rights.

I am posting this in an effort to make a simple plea for help for Moses Nkangi, who runs MASAKA STREET CHILDREN Orphanage in Uganda, Africa.
Their crops have failed and they are in need of assistance from anyone who is able to help.
Small donations are very helpful. It goes toward food and necessities for the Children who live there.
I have known Moses Nkangi for quite some years through Facebook and have kept in touch with him.
As well, I have donated small amounts, when I can, to help them out. I figure if I can send maybe $20 every three-four months it will at least give them a meal.
I know how it is because I live on next to nothing myself. But even one meal is a big help when you have 50 Children to feed!
Please make an effort to pass this information around and if you are able, contribute a small amount to them.
I can promise you it will be greatly appreciated.
Here is part of a conversation I had with him this morning in Facebook Messenger:
(Above: He sent me this picture and the ones of the burned corn field above!)
Moses: Hi dear my friend
Sheree: Hello, how are you all doing….The “humiture” is above 100 here today…. HOT!
Even here plants and crops dries up
Sheree: So your crops dried up too?
Yes as you see it in the pic
Sheree: omg all of it?
Yes, Which was my hope
Sheree: Now what are we gonna do??????? Do you think it is from global warming?
I think so, Don’t know what to. Do next
Sheree: I will send a couple dollars first week of month
Did everything die or just corn???
I know thats a stupid question…..Just hoping
salvage anything you can
Almost everything died Am now trying to irrigate

I want to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for your contribution that has helped so far in this struggle. The GoFundMe money was raised for legal fees and expenses surrounding the case, the money has been allocated and the site taken down. A new funding site will be made as further legal contributions are needed, and will be handled as the case continues. Legal funds do not account for living expenses. I prefer to work for the money I earn and have been able to get my book “Live Free or Die” ready for a reprinting with a projected date of the first week of April or sooner to be available worldwide.
I believe in persistence, perseverance, and working hard to achieve goals.
Many of you have seen what has happened in my life over the course of the last year, when police surrounded my home after my son spoke out in class. You have followed me in the past year as I have attended many court dates, struggled with pain and anguish, and watched me face this court system with my head held high.
I have a certainty, a clarity in my fight against these unjust laws. I fight with no fear, I hold my head high, knowing I am in truth. Knowing that I have a basic right to life, a basic right to live! I have faced death head on, I have struggled and felt torturous pain inflicted upon me by the barbaric medical system our society clings to and calls normal. I know I can stand tall and proud in truth, knowing it was all foretold.
Knowing that my journal, of finding how beneficial this cannabis plant was, and being able to share my personal thoughts, feelings, and experiences had to be written and published in 2010. I explain, in detail, my sickness, my life, my family, and how I teach my children; all surrounding the cannabis plant and how this plant made me feel as my body regenerated and healed.
“Live Free or Die” is a book that has already helped so many worldwide take back their own lives, and folks have been inspired to share their own stories and testimonials to help spread this knowledge.
Purchasing a signed copy of Live Free or Die helps me and my family in this very hard time, immediately, right now. I wrote this book to help others. I wrote this book to empower anyone who picked it up. I wrote this book to show everyone that LIFE truly matters. History is being made. Now. Own a piece of it, personally signed.
Purchase your pre-ordered signed copy of “Live Free or Die” here paypal.me/ShonaBanda
Donations of gratuity are also accepted.
Thank you all for your continued support in this fight.

As most people close to me know, this move has been in the planning stage for several months now, almost a year in fact. Well, it’s now time for the make it happen stage! Being a Cannabis patient and rights advocate/activist for the last 18 months, helping other patients relocate to Canna-Friendly states via the Undergreen Railroad, I am the one now asking for assistance!
I feel kind of odd asking for help because neither I, nor anyone in my family, are terminally ill and/or dying. But what I am is a 51 yr old man who has been in pain for different injuries and afflictions every single day of my life for the last 30 years. And now I am battling the issues of dealing with the side-effects of undergoing Chemo therapy for the treatment of my Hepatitis C. Above all that, I am currently living in a state with extremely oppressive legal, moral, and political standards and beliefs, and I need to get to a place where I can pursue these highly personal issues on my own terms as opposed to having them force-fed to me.
My 23 year old Son also suffers from Aspergers Syndrome and is a separate, complex, scenario all on his own, but he also wants to relocate back to his home state and be by the ocean, and he needs a safe, stable living environment.
If you have never had the misfortune of having to deal with any sort of daily chronic pain condition, you can’t begin to understand the debilitating, demoralizing, and depressing nature of this scenario. And I have several. I have undergone 8 surgeries in the last 4 ½ years. 3 of these in the last year alone. All of these 3 being major procedures which have led to the insertion of some sort of implant or prosthetic into my body. (view pictures at right)
I originally tore the Lateral Meniscus in my left knee at age 21. I began to develop the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome at age 25. 4 years ago I learned of major nerve damage in my right elbow, which I am being told probably caused the C.T. Syndrome in the first place. Also 4 years ago I developed Spinal Stenosis in my upper neck. Somewhere in there I developed Chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis which runs in my family, thus causing severe complications to all of these afflictions. I now have a titanium rod in my right wrist, thus “fusing” it to the point where I can no longer bend it. I also have another titanium implant in my neck, separating my C3, C4, C5, and C6 neck vertebrae. And 3 months ago I was given a total knee joint replacement.
When I was younger I used to work alone, in my own construction cleanup/hauling busuness. I worked VERY hard for many years and I just simply destroyed my body. I still suffer from a great deal of daily pain. And all of these procedures needed to be performed before I was able to start the Chemo as my Dr was not willing to even begin my treatment without first treating all the chronic pain scenarios.
Aside from the Chemo meds, all 3 of which are necessary and non-replaceable, I now take a rather large assortment of designer pharmaceutical medications out of pure necessity. I am planning to move to Northern Calif., given the fact that once there I will be able obtain a Medical card where I will be then able to treat with Cannabis as my main form of relief as a mood stabilizer, anti-depressant, pain reliever, sleep aid, appetite enhancer. Thus eliminating 5 of the 8 pill bottles I now store in my kitchen. And after the 24 week regimen of Chemo, I hope to eliminate “Big-Pharma” from my life completely and forever.
I will be moving with my Son. We are both on a limited, fixed income, but will be able to come up about 1/4 of the total expenses ourselves. However, any of you who have undertaken an out-of-state move knows how expensive it is, and we truly need your help! I am doing a lot of online research into our chosen area as far as prices and availabilities. Plus I will be making contact via phone and email and meeting in person in July with several property management agencies.
The cost break down will be something like this:
Moving truck and car carrier trailer to haul my car (I already got a quote from U-haul): $788 total with all taxes and fees.
Fuel, meals, and 1 night at a motel (it will be a 2 day drive): roughly $350-400
We will be looking for a 2 bedroom place in the $900-1200/mo. range. 1st and last month rent, deposit and pet deposit: $2200-3500
CA DMV changeover fees for ID’s, DL’s, car registration, tags and plate: roughly $350
CA Cannabis med card and Dr appt is about $175 but I will deal with that after we are there.
Barring any problems and unknowns, plus possibly having to stay in a Motel or at a campground for a week or 2 once there, this is a fairly concise, but conservative estimate. If we find we have to wait a month or 2 to get a pet, that deposit may not be an issue at first. Plus we will probably be able to wait a month or so to do the DMV stuff, but still this move will cost us at least $3500 minimum!
I realize that a lot of people have a problem with electronic money transfers. Giving up your credit or bank card info online is a huge issue with a lot of you, and a very valid concern, and I understand that. Some people dont believe in plastic at all or don’t have an ATM or Credit Card and have no way to do online money transfers. If you are not into the whole electronic money transfer thing, but still want to donate, click the “Contact The Organizer” button below and send me an email and we’ll chat in person and I’ll give you my address so you can mail a check or money order to me!
If you are not able to donate financially, we ask that you please share this link with your friends and family as we will need all the exposure and help we can get! Good vibes and well-wishing is also accepted and greatly appreciated!! As we get closer to our move date, I will post any progress and updates. Thank You in advance!!
