Interview and Gallery: Gord Hill, Indigenous Artist and Anarchist

By  CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective      Gord Hill is an anarchist artist and a member of the Kwakwaka’wakw nation who has been active in anticolonial and anticapitalist struggles for decades. Over the years, his art and criticism have been an inspiration and challenge to us.
Gord is the author of two comic books, The 500 Years of Resistance Comic BookThe Anti-Capitalist Resistance Comic Book, as well as 500 Years of Indigenous Resistance, and runs the website Warrior Publications. He also draws and writes under the pseudonym Zig Zag.

 

Obviously, there have always been intersections between art and resistance, but we’d like to hear how you see those intersections for yourself, and how you see those intersections playing out in society today.

I believe art is an important part of resistance in that it contributes to an overall culture of resistance. Art inspires, educates, motivates, and helps to maintain a history of resistance as well.

On 3 August 2014 IS attacked and captured Sinjar, which is the historical homeland of Yazidis, a Kurdish religious minority whose ancient religion is linked to Zoroastrianism. IS destroyed Yazidi shrines, executed resisters and demanded the residents to swear allegiance or be killed.Image result for yazidis in raqqa revenge The Sinjar Women’s Units was formed in 2015 to protect the Yazidi community in the wake of attacks by Isis

Australia: ‘No pride in genocide’ – 50,000 marched in Melbourne for ‘Invasion Day’, commemorating the colonisation of Australia by the British and the subsequent loss of the continent’s indigenous culture.

By Ben Chacko       AN ONLINE map detailing the genocide of Aboriginal Australians by white settlers has been launched.

The tool, developed by researchers at the University of Newcastle, New South Wales, records more than 150 massacres, specifying the sites where killings took place, how many people were murdered, what weapons were used to kill them and who was responsible.Image result for amazing proud australian aboriginal kids

Professor Lyndall Ryan, who developed the resource, said: “Most massacres took place in secret and were designed not to be discovered, so finding evidence of them is a major challenge.” Continue reading Aboriginal Australian genocide, online map of massacres

Indigenous Communities unite to fight Megaprojects in Chinantla Mountains, Oaxaca

 Etractivism is a war against the people

By Renata Bessi and Santiago Navarro F  at  Avispa Midia

The Chinantec people, inhabitants of the Cajonos River basin in the north of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, are carrying out an organizational process throughout their entire territory, the Chinantla, against economic projects that seek to commodify nature as a whole.

They are megaprojects such as mining, hydroelectric dams, highways, conservation projects, and, more recently, hydrocarbons. It is not a coincidence Chinantla is considered a priority of economic interest for the Mexican government. It houses the third largest tropical rainforest in Mexico. After the Lacandona jungle in Chiapas, and the Chimalapas in Oaxaca, it is the best preserved and one of the richest in biodiversity.

Unsustainable Extractivism destroys our land and water Continue reading Indigenous Communities unite to fight Megaprojects in Chinantla Mountains, Oaxaca

FORCED EVICTION ‘CANNOT EXTINGUISH THE FIRE THAT STANDING ROCK STARTED’

last_child_camp_678x381

Official Statement From Tom Goldtooth, of The Indigenous Environmental Network:

We are appalled by today’s forced evacuations of indigenous people at the Camp at Standing Rock, they are a violent and unnecessary infringement on the constitutional right of water protectors to peacefully protest and exercise their freedom of speech. It hinders the camp clean up process and creates confusion and chaos that puts the Missouri River at risk of pollution from construction and camping debris.

Today’s expulsion is a continuation of a centuries old practice, where the U.S. Government forcefully removes Indigenous people from our lands and territories.

We urge supporters of the water protectors to continue to resist this travesty by organizing mass mobilizations, distributed actions, speaking out against the violations of the Treaty rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Seven Council Fires of the Great Sioux Nation, and continuing to source up the capacity for litigation and grassroots organizing against the Dakota Access pipeline.IEN release
Our hearts are not defeated. The closing of the camp is not the end of a movement or fight, it is a new beginning.

They cannot extinguish the fire that Standing Rock started. It burns within each of us. We will rise, we will resist, and we will thrive.

We are sending loving thoughts to the water protectors along the banks of the Cannonball River, today. May everyone be as safe as can be. #noDAPL

URGENT.

Militarized law enforcement have now surrounded their camp. In less than 24 hours, at 2pm on THIS WEDNESDAY Feb. 22, law enforcement will try and raid the camp and arrest any water protectors who attempt to remain.

THIS IS NOT OK. This is their treaty land. This is their water at stake.

Water Protectors are asking media, supporters and those who can come to come NOW. Right now. Please pay attention & share their truths. Come if you can. This is the front line in the battle against #TrumpTyranny.

Survival • Self Determination • Liberation

This is why we march. Stand with us. Organize a caravan.
March 7- 9 : Native leaders and organizers will erect tipis on the National Mall and for three days they will hold space to make our voices and presence heard. They will also lobby in the halls of Washington D.C. to protect Indigenous Rights.
March 10 : Native Peoples and their allies will gather for a march through Washington D.C. On this day we will stand together by the thousands making our demands known and collectively we will tell the new administration they can no longer disrespect our rights, our ancestral lands and the sacred water that gives us life.

INDIGENOUS WOMEN OF STANDING ROCK ISSUE HEARTBREAKING PLEA FOR HELP AHEAD OF EVACUATION | MIC

Indigenous women of Standing Rock issue heartbreaking plea for help ahead of evacuation | Mic – Monthslong demonstrations at Standing Rock are scheduled to end Wednesday; the United States Army Corps of Engineers and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum have issued an evacuation order for the morning of Feb. 22, according to the official website for the Oceti Sakowin camp.

Peaceful protesters gathered there seemed to score a victory in early December, when the Army Corps of Engineers denied a permit that would have allowed construction of the Dakota Access pipeline to continue along its previously planned route, under Lake Oahe. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe opposed the pipeline on the grounds that it threatened ancient tribal lands and could pollute a crucial water source, the Missouri River.
