Call for autonomous solidarity actions
Here is the call for autonomous solidarity actions the #1492LandBackLane camp:
“On October 9 we are calling our allies and supporters to action – we need your support as we face unjust legal processes in defense of our lands and waters.
Indigenous Peoples and Land Defenders across Turtle Island will stand together and amplify our collective resistance to colonial oppression.
This day of action is about land back everywhere, continuing a tradition of national days of action in support of Indigenous sovereignty. We are calling for a diversity of tactics coming from the diverse communities from which our support comes.
The colonial state and their police continue to try to divide and conquer the Peoples of Turtle Island. While we resist colonial violence in its many forms everyday, October 9th we will again reclaim colonized spaces and disrupt colonial infrastructure.
Together we will send a message to political leaders, the courts and police – their roads and rails and so-called economic development have extracted the health and well-being from our communities for long enough. Now is the time to fight back.
On October 9th we will be appearing in their court to defend ourselves against their injunction. We are calling for autonomous solidarity actions from communities of resistance across Turtle Island.”
