We stand in solidarity with Palestine, also known as Filasṭīn*
The vision of Sogorea Te’ Land Trust is to cultivate rematriation and to heal and transform the legacies of colonization, genocide and patriarchy, both where we are and in the world. As an Indigenous women led organization, as peoples descended from survivors and resisters of genocidal and colonial projects, we are in solidarity with all peoples dispossessed from their ancestral lands and struggling for their survival.
Our hearts are with families displaced from their lands and broken apart, those who are grieving their children and loved ones, with young people struggling with the trauma of violent oppression, with the land, the waters and the air poisoned by war and violence. Our hearts are with our relatives. Our hearts are with Palestine.
We demand an immediate ceasefire in Palestine. We condemn the Israeli siege, we condemn apartheid, we condemn genocide, and we demand an end to U.S military aid and funding of Israeli violence. Not in our name.
Sharing solidarity is only one small way to support. We do so having already received hate messages and threats to withdraw funding. We do not want money that is contingent on accepting a genocide silently. Now is the time to take action. Join the boycotting of corporations funding this genocide, find protests and actions happening in your city, continue uplifting & sharing news from journalists on ground in Gaza, contact your local representatives, speak for peace.
We offer our prayers for peace and justice and we work towards restoring Indigenous peoples sacred relationships with their ancestral lands and building another world for the next seven generations.
Free Palestine. Free Filasṭīn.
