Perpetuating Poverty

Obama Supports Genocide

While Obama does a photo op in Germany with President Merkel commemorating the Jewish Holocaust, the Obama Administration back home continues to block recognition of the rights of indigenous peoples of America under international law. By ignoring the American Indian Holocaust, President Obama supports genocide through US agencies like the Department of Interior, where theft of Native American mineral resources continues to this day. Obama’s Department of Justice could end this criminal enterprise that perpetuates poverty on reservations, but instead chose to follow his predecessor in fighting resolution of Indian trust accounts.
