Moving toward Indigenous Liberation

This week the US celebrated Indigenous Peoples Day, rebranding what used to be Columbus Day to focus on Indigenous liberation instead of colonial violence.

The text overlay reads, "From Kurdistan to Palestine to Turtle Island, we honour Indigenous Peoples Day"

This week we lift up the voices of Indigenous resistance. From Palestine, to Kurdistan, to Turtle Island we celebrate the liberation movements. We pray that we have the courage to be accomplices in a movement toward Indigenous Liberation and Land Back. As the drilling under the Wedzin Kwa continues in Wet’suwe’ten Territory, we recommit ourselves to resistance. We refuse to despair. We push ourselves to take action regardless of personal risk. We must open our ears and listen to Indigenous Land Defenders and move forward unafraid.

Solidarity relationships lead to victory

Twenty years of Grass Narrows action and solidarity relationships have led to victory against logging companies. Solidarity relationships form a critical aspect of supporting the Wet’suwet’en people to keep the oil and gas industry off their land.
