My name is Elaina Porter and I am a member of the American Institute of Human Rights. For the past three years we have studied international human rights,humanitarian, and law of war to address our issues. In October we created a confederated nation state. We have a right to establish a nation state here and on the continent if we wish. Israel is the model we can look at. The U.S. government is required to facilitate and provide resources for infrastructure and development because we are descendants of prisoners of a war that has never stopped. We are still under occupancy.
