What is anarch@indigenism, this intersectionality of indigenism, anarchism and feminism?

Zapatista Subcomandante Marcos states it well in this self-description:

Marcos is gay in San Francisco, black in South America, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10 p.m., a peasant without land, a gang member in the slums, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student, and, of course, a Zapatista in the mountains.

Indigenism, Anarchism, Feminism

Je suis a wannabe Marco not a Wétiko !

I am so excited to have accidentally come across this website: About
  • We are not here to document Statist, top-down legislative/governmental “decolonization” from above, but rather the mental, spiritual, and psychological decolonization and liberation that can only come from below and within, and does not seek sanction or legitimization from abstract (and fundamentally illegitimate) external power structures in seeking true sovereignty and self-determination for ourselves and for all people.

I have to get off the computer now so will end the opening post with this little gem:
  • “Columbus was a wétiko. He was mentally ill or insane, the carrier of a terribly contagious psychological disease, the wétiko psychosis. The Native people he described were sane people with a healthy state of mind. Sanity or healthy normality among humans and other living creatures involves a respect for other forms of life and other individuals. I believe that is the way people have lived (and should live). The wétiko psychosis, and the problems it creates, have inspired many resistance movements and efforts at reform or revolution. Unfortunately, most of these efforts have failed because they have never diagnosed the wétiko as an insane person whose disease is extremely contagious.” Jack D. Forbes, Columbus and Other Cannibals.

Contributes to all that we chose to place in a state of amnesia ... thus dissociated minds ... and what Lords it over what flies? Lord of the Buzz ... perhaps shue flies ... and pop goes the weasel! He was sly to escape ... as ermine! There's more to come as a dark tale ... Macky A' Valley 'n as yet around the corner ... wry fables!

Tis a complex vision of how that furry psi 'n got around the neck of King Henry VIII alas the truth was turned down ... subtlety? The stuff we don't know is in the darker side ... unseen, or just blackout spots?

Some interesting thoughts @Ritafee I may need some time to read and reflect.

Reminded me of how Jesus was a demos ... depending on whether taking a subjective or objective view of how the haunting conscience affected the wills in a totally unleashed state! Some things need to be partially restricted ... one could expand precariously on the topical nature as capricious in quantum reality (bi-chance)!

Thus many essences wobble ... and weave ... then they cut out ... begone! The institutions love elimination of variants ...

We stand as witnesses to this historic moment when the federal and provincial governments, RCMP, and Coastal GasLink/Transcanada are openly violating Wet’suwet’en, Canadian law, and international law.

“Statement of Solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en people of British Columbia”

  • Our best hope for justice and sustainability in Canada lies with communities like the Wet’suwet’en nation, who take their relationship and responsibilities to their lands and waters so seriously that they will risk all they have to defend it.
Over 1000 Professors and Scholars from across Canada and around the world sign “Statement of Solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en people of British Columbia”

All is normal as the great powers see it!

An extract from Lord Acton's travelling thoughts ... like dark plugs! Pennies were once placed on the eyes of the dead as a means of buying them time to parallel admonitions! Can one see through the co*per ...

156 Fourth World Nations have suffered Genocide since 1945

The Center for World Indigenous Studies is conducting a study of “Genocides against Fourth World Peoples” to learn about the extent of genocide (in the Lemkin sense and in the latter-day scholars’ sense) committed against Fourth World peoples and what alternatives exist to establish justice and prevent occurrences of genocide.

By simply examining the continental figures for Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East gathered by contemporary scholars tabulating the killings of groups by particular perpetrators we find that 156 Fourth Nations have been invaded with the resultant killing of an estimated 12.482 million people between 1945 and 2017.

Up to 58 UN member state governments and the militias they supported were responsible for all 156 invasions and ultimate killings of Fourth World peoples.

156 Fourth World nations have suffered cultural genocide since 1945 and not one government responsible for invasions and killings of millions of people have been called to account.
