This past weekend, September 15-17, up to 100 activists and supporters of the Oneida land struggle in central New York joined forces to hold off the illegal eviction and demolition of Danielle Shenandoah’s home by the illegitimate regime of Ray Halbritter.
JOIN US THIS FRIDAY AT 12:00PM NOON AS WE DEMONSTRATE IN FRONT OF THE GOVERNOR'S MANSION IN ALBANY, NY TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR THESE INDIGENOUS ONEIDA FAMILIES WHO FACE EVICTION AND THE DEMOLITION OF THEIR HOMES. IN DOING SO WE HOPE TO BRING ATTENTION TO THEIR DAILY STRUGGLE AGAINST OPPRESSION AND CULTURAL GENOCIDE
The great task of grassroots dual power is to seek out and create social spaces and fill them with liberatory institutions and relationships. Where there is room for us to act for ourselves, we form institutions conducive not only to catalyzing revolution, but also to the present conditions of a fulfilling life, including economic and political self-management to the greatest degree achievable. We seek not to seize power, but to seize opportunity vis a vis the exercise of our power.
I am writing this early Tuesday morning (Sept.17) right after visiting the MOVE home on Kingsessing Ave. in West Philadelphia. I spoke with three MOVE members keeping watch at the front gate of their home while the rest of the family was inside trying to get some rest. The situation is very tense right now and MOVE must be on 24 hour watch. The windows of their house (facing the street) are boarded up in preparation for a police assault.
Welcome to Philadelphia!
