Alright yall, are you bored and have access to the internet?
What we're gonna do is spam news outlets and the president's accounts demanding accountability for line 3. Facebook, tik tok, twitter accounts, whatever. If we can't have peace than neither should they. If we can't ignore the injustices being done to us than the people allowing it to go on shouldn't be able to either.
Simply put, because they've been ignoring us for long enough.
Line 3 goes straight through treaty land. It is built by a company thats infamous for how often their pipelines break. The pipeline crosses 22 points of water and puts 20% of our freshwater at risk. Natives have put forth appeal after appeal and have had one protest after another against the pipeline. Line 3 efforts even included actively sabotaging worksites (worksites on native land, mind you). Police have been caught sabotaging water protector efforts as well by doing things like damaging vehicles and dumping our water bottles. They've harassed elders doing ceremonies on their own land. They've brutalized water protectors with excessive force (even using pressure points to get people to submit- it's all on film).
Feel free to say or phrase these facts however you like, but make sure it's understood that these injustices must be acknowledged and stopped. That we know the current administration has the power to make that happen.
A tactic like this only works if all do it. So please do this. Don't let them keep ignoring us. And allies, put your voices right alongside ours and demand the same.
Don't be discouraged if it seems like there aren't many others doing it yet. Pass this post along and more will be right behind you, I promise. A tactic like this needs exposure to work. The more this is reblogged the more people you will have on your side. So please reblog and give it time, don't give up, please.
use #HonorTheTreaties & #PeopleVsFossilFuels. let's see if we can get this trending, yeah?

If you really want to help indigenous people, now is your time.
Ngati Paoa and other protestors have been occupying Putiki Bay after resource consent was given to develop it without consent from the local iwi. Today, they are blocked by police as developers being to destroy Little Blue Penguin habitat, a species on the decline with climate change and habitat destruction.
Public outrage and eyes on Putiki may be the only thing that can save Putiki now after every route has failed. Spread information about Putiki every where you can - Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, your local group chat, whatever. Please please please help save Putiki Bay, Aotearoa NZ!
I know the news is in the pocket of the ruling class and everything but I can't fucking believe ppl in philly created an entire fucking les-mis style blockade around a city block to stop cops from evicting houseless folks and that wasn't major breaking news.
Like CHAZ was in the news for fucking weeks meanwhile philly had a colossal group of homeless people set up a tent city, a bunch of black bloc folks erected a barricade by breaking into construction sites and stealing supplies, then used that barricade as a bargaining chip to negotiate the city into giving 100 homes to public housing, and nobody fucking knows about that except for a few of my friends irl. What the fuck.
Hey maybe direct action and voting aren’t mutually exclusive? Maybe you can plant a garden and take two minutes to fill out a form to ensure people don’t lose their rights? Maybe you’re feeding a very dangerous narrative by slapping an unnecessary binary onto political action with a “good” and “bad” option and making people feel they have to be limited to one or the other when both are necessary for change?

In Vancouver, a Catholic Church was defaced in direct response to the discovery of the mass grave at the Kamloops Indian Residential School. Graffiti demanding that the church “Release the Records” called out the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, who both operate the church and operated the Kamloops Indian Residential School, as well as almost half of all residential schools across Canada.
In Six Nations territory, it was the Anglican Church who operated the Mohawk Institute Residential School from 1831-1970. On June 12, a suspected arson significantly damaged an Anglican church on the territory. While no one has publicly claimed the action, many community members assumed that the attack was connected the current scrutiny of churches and their role in residential schools.
May 13, 2021 - Immigration cops tried to arrest two men in Glasgow, Scotland, on the day of Eid. A huge crowd of locals in the area of Pollokshields, chanting “these are our neighbours, let them go!”, turned up and boxed the police van in for seven hours, withstanding attempts by police to break through the crowd, until the cops were forced to let the two men go.

Stuff like guerilla gardening, stickering, wheatpasting, lifting, graffiti, pothole-filling and other minor illegal acts aren’t only important for their primary effects, but because disobeying your capitalist programming helps break down the internalized worldview that comes with it
You start seeing society as it is: a collection of flawed, limited, man-made institutions that can be ignored, reshaped, or abolished. You see your environment as something that you’re free to improve and beautify. You see items on shelves as common property which is unjustly hoarded and guarded. You see cops as violent oppressors upholding the unfair demands of the ruling class - but you also see them as human, able to be avoided, fooled, and fought
Practice illegalism daily to see past the smoke and mirrors that make it look like the way things are is the way they must be. A better world is possible
