American Indian Movement take the Longest Walk with Dennis Banks

We join the Longest Walk in Taos, NM and talk with American Indian Movement's Dennis Banks... Dennis has a long history standing up and fighting for human rights, look him up if you're not in the know.

Haven't heard of The Longest Walk? Of course you haven't - most mainstream media ignored it and 'new media/bloggers' like the Huffington Post missed it. New Media/blogging has a LONG way to go. Most bloggers are carbon copies of who and what they see on T.V. and outlets like the Huffington Post continue the trend of only giving a voice to the over educated, out of touch, wanna be writers posing as a journalists.

Tip to the world of 'new media news' reporting - Wanna get the dirt? employ a plumber, drug dealer, stripper or someone who lives off of food stamps and you'll truly have your ear to the street.

And to the blogging community - your podcamps and new media expos are lacking what would truly make blogging/podcasting something respectable - breaking the news that the white washed huffington posts of the world miss and reporting on folks of differing backgrounds and color.

Shame on ALL who missed reporting on The Longest Walk. Distributed by Tubemogul.

Tupac Enrique Acosta of the Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative / Tonatierra calls into the Jeff Farias show on NovaM radio quite frequently.

"True Pacifism is not unrealistic submission to an Evil is rather a courageous confrontation with Evil by the Power of Love, in the faith that it is better to be the recipient of violence than the inflicter of it, since the latter only multiplies the existence of violence & bitterness in the Universe, while the former may develop a sense of shame in the opponent, & thereby bring about a transformation & change of Heart." - MLK
