Christian Doctrine and Dehumanization of Indigenous Peoples
"The Doctrine of Discovery was among Vatican mandates dating back to the 15th century, called papal bulls, that declared Christian monarchs had the right to claim superior title over land and territories that they "discovered."

The claimed right of "dominion" over Native peoples was based on the thinking that non-Christians were "heathens and uncivilized savages," with no, or limited rights, to land.

The Vatican's Doctrine of Discovery was based on the premise that all non-Christian land belonged to no one because no Christians were living there and no Christian monarch or lord had yet claimed dominion. Once Christian monarchies like Spain or France claimed the right of dominion, that claim was transferred to political successors over centuries."

Eviction Blockade Alert - Postponed For Now
The eviction blockade at 18 King Street has been called off for tomorrow. The Humes family has petitioned for a stay and they will be in court tomorrow morning for a hearing. Please keep your guard up and prepare for a blockade as soon as Wednesday morning!!!! We will send out an email tomorrow afternoon, updating the status of a potential blockade.



The central demand of our movement for 3 years has been STOP POST-FORECLOSURE, NO-FAULT EVICTIONS BY THE BANKS. That's what Ursula Humes is fighting for on Tuesday morning. She is taking a stand on principle. Wells Fargo is evicting her no -fault. With our support, she will fight any no fault eviction by the bank.
