Art of Resistance
Relocation is Genocide – Mae Tso Poster
“We must resist. We have become this land of ours. We are Indigenous. We are still here. And I am not going anywhere.”
– Mae Tso
Mae Tso was an elder Diné matriarch and a powerful force in the ongoing resistance to forced relocation on Black Mesa.
She fought against Peabody Coal mining and PL93-531, the so-called “Relocation Act” as she was one of the main plaintiffs in the lawsuit Manybeads et al v. the United States. She lived her entire life following traditional ways on her ancestral lands and leaves a strong legacy of young resisters to carry on her fight.
She was taken from us recently by COVID-19.
Rest in Power Mae Tso.

No Justice on Stolen Lands!
Abolish the settler colonial police state.
Attack. Cop city is everywhere!
When we resist the commodification and destruction of Mother Earth, we continue Indigenous resistance to over 500 years of colonial violence. Colonial enforcers continue to murder land, water, and forest defenders. Respect existence or expect resistance.

“The City of Atlanta has leased 381-acres of Weelaunee Forest, stolen Muscogee land, to the Atlanta Police Foundation for a police military facility funded by corporations.
Cop City will never be built.” #StopCopCity #DefendWeelaunee
Smash the settler and resource colonial police state.
Poster: Apologies Mean Nothing…Pope
“Apologies mean nothing so long as the system of colonial violence remains.”

A response to the recent “apology” by the pope to Indigenous Peoples of so-called kkkanada.
Christianity is a primary institution of cis-heteropatriarchal colonial violence. The systematic annihilation of Indigenous Peoples and lifeways in the “Name of God” continues throughout the world. Putting a headdress on genocide, ecocide & enslavement is not justice.

We are not surprised at the decisions made in the name of “justice” by those who determine the “supreme” law of colonial social order. What justice can we expect from the colonizer’s courts that are rooted in white supremacy & cis-heteropatriarchy?
