"The federal government and Anishinabek Nation moved a step closer to abolishing the Indian Act.
The Anishinabek First Nation, represented by Grand Council Chief John Beaucage, and the Government of Canada, represented by Minister of Indian Affairs Jim Prentice, agreed Friday afternoon to meet regularly and hammer out the community’s self-governance plan."


New Zealand Herald article.
"A unique and critically endangered sub-species of mountain gorilla came one step closer to extinction this week after a band of suspected African rebels attacked ranger posts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo's Virunga National Park killing one wildlife officer and wounding four more.

The group, said to be part of the Mai Mai rebel movement which has been known to eat gorillas and believes it is impervious to bullets, then threatened to kill mountain gorillas in the area if there were any reprisal attacks by the rangers or the government."


Article about public Graff wall at Venice Beach.
