On Monday the #EZLN came to Dublin to meet our movements.

You could tell the story of Dublin’s #SocialMovements through class:

they met working-class community groups, housing activists, migrant members of the new Irish working class, trade unionists and many shades of left. Welcome to Dublin
But you could also say that we talked about #patriarchy and violence against women, #racism and colonialism, land and ecology, autonomy and rebellion. For the #EZLN as in actual communities, these are not separate struggles:

A few thoughts on Liberal Twitter:

I've seen Erin O'Toole point to a blue outhouse, post a video of the PM dressed as woman, be unable to pick a lane to suit his supporters, flip flop on policy, suck up to the gun lobby & protect racists in the CPC. 1/6 #cdnpoli
I've seen Jagmeet Singh wax poetic about all the things he wants while forgetting how this country operates. Jurisdiction *is* a 'thing' ...snapping fingers does not work, threats to withhold support does not work 2/6 #cdnpoli
I've watched the PM stick handle the pandemic for 19 months, support Cdns, procure vaccines & keep the economy afloat. Meanwhile his wife was grossly insulted, gravel thrown at him. Premiers took $$ & still complained....send more Justin! 3/6 #cdnpoli

Inga Clendinnen "Dancing with Strangers"

In this thread students @MQLinguistics read Clendinnen's historical #ethnography based on the diaries of the officers of the 1st fleet to learn about #InterculturalCommunication between British colonizers and Sydney's Indigenous people
#DancingWithStrangers is a story of confusion and ignorance of #culture #language, aspirations, traditions and #law
One of the most tragic figures is Baneelon, an Australian kidnapped by Governor Phillip and taught English in a desperate attempt to create an intermediary.
The detailed musings of the white men in #DancingWithStrangers contrast with the deafening silence of any women's voices - what did the Indigenous and colonising #women think of each other? Of the men they encountered? How different would history be if women had been in charge?

#TruthAndReconciliation is marketing-as is #OrangeShirtDay2021 & holiday for white people on stolen land. Reconciliation would be giving land back. EuroAmerican destroys everything in path. #Indigenous peoples rep. less than 5% of pop. -yet support approx. 80% all #biodiversity.
#TruthBeforeReconciliation would be criminal charges against those responsible for res. schools & dead children. "However, as w/ any criminal case, the charges would be laid by the Crown—which would essentially amount to the govt putting itself on trial."…

Vulnerable & long post. One I should probably include a trigger warning on. So TW: blood, chronic illness, medical appointments & medical racism. /1 #DisabilityTwitter #ChronicIllnessTwitter #ChronicMigraines #ChronicPain #Migraines #MedicalRacism #Indigenous #Intersectionality
So, today was what I commonly refer to as “needle day” which is just one aspect of the protocol I have to manage my migraines in which I receive upwards of 30 injections of Botox to my face, head and neck. /2
This is administered in a different approach (ie it does not target muscles) and therefore does not have the same affects that cosmetic Botox does. Today was a personal best (yes, I’m being sarcastic) with 46 injection sites. And yes, it hurts and there’s blood. /3

THREAD-Please bear with me as I attempt to inform non-indigenous Cdns on the upcoming first #TruthandReconciliationDay on September 30th. It is one of the calls to action by the #TRC Commission. It is not a “holiday.” It isn’t a day to celebrate. It isn’t a day for to do……..
anything other than to have deep self reflection on the #genocide my people have endured since contact. Wearing an orange shirt does not count unless you think long and hard about the #privileges you have incurred due to our sufferings. You need to check your own biases. It is….
imperative that you learn how to be an ally. It’s not up to you on how, where or what you are willing to do towards #Reconciliation. You don’t get to pass the buck onto your ancestors or the govts. Every single living Cdn owes #INDIGENOUS people, the survivors of the death….

Although the Canadian constitution and case law set out the responsibilities of provincial and federal governments to Indigenous Peoples, they shed little light on the relationships between Indigenous communities and municipalities. #cdnmuni 2/
Do municipalities have a “duty to consult” (which obligates the federal and provincial governments to consult and accommodate First Nations on specific issues)? Is this duty the appropriate framework for Indigenous-municipal relationships? #cdnmuni 3/ "There are no Supreme Court cases that extend the duty

The 3-day finale of #yyccc 2017-2021 was lit!!! It’s hard to believe the writers were able to get so many great things resolved. Also, so many cool things have been set up for the next show: 2021-2025 (which will start filming on Oct 18). Here’s my recap of the highlights: 1/24
The finale opened w emotion: 1) #yyc-based members of the #TokyoOlympics/#TokyoParalympics #teamcanada were honored. 2) tributes to the retiring members of #yyccc, @DruhFarrell @EWoolleyWard8 @ChahalGeorge @Ward4Ward1 @CouncillorKeats & @nenshi, induced tears & good vibes. 2/24
After almost exactly 4yrs of work initiated by my learning about #BenefitDrivenProcurement @FCSSAAoffice’s AGM right after the 2017 #yycvote, getting an NoM passed by #yyccc, & development shepherded by @momentumcalgary’s @HareCourtney, we’ve approved a great policy!!! 3/24

In case you missed it, last week was the #OurLandOurNature alternative congress, which finished on Friday with a #protest in Marseille, France, where we were joined by a number of other orgs including @xrFrance, @amisdelaterre & @yfcmarseille.

Despite the torrential rain ⛈️ the turn out was big, showing how strong the resistance is towards the false solutions to tackle #ClimateChange being proposed at the #IUCNcongress.

The plan to turn 30% of the world into Protected Areas by 2030 (30x30) is a distraction from the real causes of #environmental destruction - instead it puts a price on #nature & allows big business to profit.

Movie buffs would probably agree that “#KingdomOfTheCrystal” skull wasn't exactly the most exciting #IndianaJones instalment.

But did you know, there’s a real story behind the plot around the 'lost city' of #Akator and the #Ugha tribe - and that it is no less movie material?
Okay, 'real story’ may be a bit of a stretch in this case, admittedly.

It's more 'story' than real, to be honest - but still, let's take a closer look ...
That story starts with a mysterious 'Indian' all of a sudden appearing in Brazil from the depths of the jungle in the summer of 1972 - introducing himself as #TatuncaNara ("big water snake"), chieftain of the #UghaMongulala (yes, you read this correct) tribe …

I’m the first Indigenous and Pacific Islander in this position. @CashinMD is the first Indigenous Board member this year.

I’ve been asked many times about what being in this position means in the context of being Indigenous. Recent #CMAagm has consolidated a few thoughts.

Living #Indigenous means pushing through structural #exclusion and #disempowerment. It gives unique insight into how to #empower the disempowered.

I’ll be making space for you at all the tables I’ll be invited to. If that space doesn’t exist, let’s create it together.

I know there are people curious about TikTok but see it as inacessible for a variety of reasons: unfamiliarity, what's the point, their own self-view as being non-tech, security concerns...but are still curious. The content is really good for the soul imo. Quick guide:
1. Download the app and make an account. Enter as minimal information about yourself as possible. I keep a separate email account for online shopping (to reduce spam) and use that. Don't use real birth date. Then...
2. Down the bottom of the screen, you'll see a magnifying glass or the 'discover' tab. Go into it and type in a topic that interests you with a hash in front of it. Suggestions: #melbourne, #sydney, #medicine #dancechallenge, #indigenous
