Decolonizing the New World Means Listening to Indigenous Voices
Tuesday, Feb 19 7:30pm
at The Holdout Social Center 2313 San Pablo Ave, Oakland
In understanding anti-colonial struggle and its intersection with anti-capitalist struggles, it is important to recognize the ongoing effects of colonization and the ongoing struggles of local indigenous people.
Please join the ACAC 19 Support Committee in an evening of report backs on indigenous struggles from the bay and beyond.
This event will feature a screening of Buried Voices directed by Michelle Steinberg, a film about Brushy Peak, a local sacred site.
Followed by report backs from Bay Area sacred sites struggles from:
Local sacred sites activist Corrina Gould, a Chochenyo/Karkin Ohlone woman, born and raised in Oakland, CA
Wounded Knee DeOcampo, a Miwok elder from Vallejo, CA who has also been organizing around preserving sacred sites
Desirae Harp who works with SNAG magazine (a local indigenous publication).
These local speakers will be followed by Norman Benally, an activist in what has become a multi-generational struggle against coal mining and other resource extraction from Navajo land in Black Mesa, AZ.
This event is semi-accessible to people in wheelchairs
