“Pockets of Resistance” growing and spreading
Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 11, 2015
You’ve heard me often refer to “Pockets of Resistance,” those towns/cities and states where activists are demanding answers to the many questions citizens have about the United Nations/US State Department colonization of their towns by third worlders through the Refugee Resettlement Program.
We did not coin that phrase, the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement did here in June 2013 (or at least that is the first place I heard it) when they also announced that they had hired ‘Welcoming America’ to head off new ones, and get those already existing ones under control.
In 2013, ORR specifically mentioned that there were ‘Pockets of Resistance’ in New Hampshire, Tennessee and Georgia.
By the way, it was at that meeting that I first heard the information about “seeding” our towns and cities with immigrants.
Now we can report there are growing pockets in the following states in addition to the three just mentioned: Idaho, Ohio, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia (that I know of!). I know I risk tipping off Welcoming America agitators to head to those states, but if I don’t mention this, many of you might get discouraged thinking you are alone.
New category here at RRW
What I am going to do is make a new category here at RRW for posts specifically on what concerned citizens are doing to demand answers—to demand TRANSPARENCY—where they live. The purpose of which is to help give you ideas and to learn about efforts to resist already underway. Having all of those posts in one place will make it easier for new readers to find them.
I’m going to go back to a few previous posts—recently on Idaho and Minnesota—and place them in the new category. Unfortunately I won’t be able to go back through 6,000 plus posts to select those involving citizen action!
Here is a Minnesota example!
Last week a concerned citizen in Willmar, Minnesota, Bob Enos, made a presentation to the County Board Meeting in Willmar (Kandiyohi County). One bit of information that interested me was his assertion that the second highest number of refugees going to Minnesota were going to Willmar and not to St. Cloud (a very active ‘pocket’). Enos has done his homework and I direct your attention to this video of the County Board Meeting to see the kind of presentation that you could be making where you live. Click on the video and go to 2:35:09 mark.
Some people have had difficulty loading it. It loads for me on Firefox although on the second viewing I only got sound (but that is adequate for your purposes!).
Be sure to see this post we wrote about resistance and sabotage.
Do you have an action item that throws a shoe in the machinery of government that you would like to report? Please let us know!
Again, see our new category—Pockets of Resistance. (I will be adding posts to it as soon as possible)
