Every year I invite people who are celebrating the colonial holiday to do something in support of Native people. Between the hyper-criminalization of Water Protectors and attacks on Native families, sovereignty & voting rights, this is a crucial time for our communities. (THREAD)
This thread is a list of groups & fellow Indigenous organizers I will be supporting today & I invite you all to join me. First, the Line 3 Legal Defense Fund provides support to people facing arrest, jail time & repression bc of their opposition to Line 3. line3legalfund.com
Woodland Women is a group that offers mutual support and healing for women on my reservation. They hold community talking circles, practice mutual aid, offer free beading classes and share Menominee cultural knowledge. I love them. paypal.com/paypalme/Woodl…
The Indian Child Welfare Act is under attack, which threatens Native families, Native sovereignty and much more. @NativeChildren helps to protect Native children and keep them connected to their families, community and culture. nicwa.org/donate-online/
If you want to support reproductive justice for Native people, @IWRising's initiatives include financial & practical support for Indigenous abortion seekers in the US & Canada, midwifery support & advocacy surrounding repro justice related issues. Donate: PayPal.me/IWRising
Amid the continued rise of right-wing violence and voter suppression, Native voting rights are under attack. @4directionsvote is committed to the full enfranchisement of Native people. To fight Native voter suppression, you can donate here: fourdirectionsvote.com/donation/
Indigenous friends and co-strugglers of mine will be among those assisting elders of Winnemucca Indian Colony in Northern Nevada who are fighting unlawful demolitions and evictions. Material support is needed for the winter.

Well, y'all won. I read Who's the Bad Art Friend? Yikes...
It's my day off, so I apparently had time to spend on... that. 😂
In one of my creative writing classes in college, going somewhere public, eavesdropping, making notes, and then writing a story around whatever you had jotted down was literally an assignment we were given. It's part of the craft. That may be fucked up, but it's true.

The fact that there's a feud between Chicago's mayor and top prosecutor because the mayor wants people charged for a gunfight, while the prosecutor says there's no evidence of who did want, should be national news. What the mayor is doing is horrifying.
The mayor of Chicago is demanding a charge them all and let god sort it out approach to criminal justice -- and she's doing it loudly and proudly. This is so dangerous. It should be called out. It should be opposed.
"Even First Deputy Superintendent Brendan Deenihan testified before the city council expressing concerns about the evidence. 'The cameras captured the incident, but not enough to put a gun in someone's hand & not enough to charge someone in the incident'" abc7chicago.com/chicago-shooti…

This week on Movement Memos, I talked with Breanne Palmer, from @UndocuBlack about the Biden administration's treatment of Haitian migrants, and with @KevinHerreraJD about Operation Lone Star, Gov. Abbott's terrifying state-level war on migrants in Texas. truthout.org/audio/trump-is…
Have you heard of Operation Lone Star? Basically, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is implementing his own decidedly unconstitutional version of Trumpism at the state level, and the federal government is letting it happen. Thousands of migrants have been detained. truthout.org/audio/trump-is…
By illegally detaining thousands of migrants, Abbott claims he's doing what Biden refuses to do, even as Biden himself mercilessly deports thousands of asylum seekers, without even taking the time to run COVID tests. truthout.org/audio/trump-is…

Seeing people talking about canceling streaming services etc, and y'all, I will honor any asks from the union, but I'm not pre-emptively giving up shit. Also, it's always best to take your cues from the workers on this stuff. Their asks & strategies are cultivated with intention.
I mean, if you're looking for an excuse to watch less TV, I support you. I know I should prob swap out some of my screen time for reading time. But I love television and there's a whole pandemic thing happening, so TV and me are gonna stay tight for now.
But seriously, when acting in solidarity with workers, it's best to follow their lead. They are flexing their worker power. Us abiding by their asks helps demonstrate that power.

I would be crying? Are you serious? If someone followed a member of the Squad into the common area of a bathroom and yelled? A violent mob tried to hunt them down in the halls of Congress. If someone yelled at one of them in a bathroom, I prob wouldn't even hear about it.
And this notion some of you have, that liberals & leftists give tactics "the greenlight," and right-wingers act accordingly, is so bizarre. We are not establishing mutual rules of engagement. The right is out here doing what they will, including trying to overthrow the government
This is very Democratic Party thinking -- that we can't do a thing if we don't want the other side to do that thing, when the other side has been clear it will cause as much damage as possible, regardless what you say or do, under all circumstances, forever.
