Today is Free Nations Day.
Free Nations Day is an opportunity to reclaim the idea that nations are voluntary groupings of free individuals, not externally imposed political borders or states. Both geographic localities and identities that transcend space are legitimate entities with the right to decide their own ways of life.
Lingít Aaní, or the Tlingit Nation if you will, is a tribal nation captive by and split between two externally imposed states and their borders: the US and Canada. Hundreds, if not thousands of cultural groups, linguistic groups, tribes, and other nations join us in this common experience: captivity and division in our own lands. We are the captive nations of the world.
Lately Kurdistan, Catalonia and Scotland have been making the news in their struggle for freedom. Let the world also know that the Tlingit people are a nation, too, divided and surrounded by political borders that were not our making. Let the world know of the hundreds of tribes and tribal Nations in North America that suffer a similar fate. Happy Free Nations Day, and decolonize Lingít Aaní!

With much discussion with Elders Councils and around Sacred fires and ceremonies the Secwepemc Ts’ka7 Warriors have acted out their collective responsibility and jurisdiction to and in the Ts’ka7 area by deactivating the Imperial Metals Ruddock Creek mine road.
Imperial Metals Corporation never asked for or received free, prior and informed consent to operate in Secwepemc Territory. The Imperial Metals Mount Polley mine disaster, in the area known as Yuct Ne Senxiymetkwe, the absolute destruction and devastation of our Territory has never been answered for. No reparations have been made. Instead Imperial Metals continues to force through another mine in our Territory while criminalizing the Klabona Keepers of the Tahltan Nation also exerting their jurisdictional and withholding consent from the same company.

This is one of the most striking and intelligent articles I’ve ever read, encouraging a total reconfiguring of how to view capitalism and revolution. Russell Means was a leader in the American Indian Movement (AIM) of the 1960s and 70s, and remains one of the most outspoken Native Americans in the U.S.
I came across this essay while researching for my upcoming critique of Marxism, and was blown away by its clarity. This is Means’ most famous essay. It was published in Ward Churchill’s book “Marxism and Native Americans”, under the title “The Same Old Song”, and has appeared elsewhere under the names “Marxism is a European Tradition,” and “For America to Live, Europe Must Die.” Yet, it is actually not very available on the internet. I hope by republishing it I will raise some much-needed debate on the nature of the revolutionary project today.

Good words from former Black Panther Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin. There’s a great deal of very interesting information on this fellow’s Facebook page. This guy is a genuine veteran of the struggle against the system.
“Though many want to follow in the example of the original Black Panther Party and pick up the gun, do not forget that the BPP were a group of revolutionary community organizers, and even they expanded their politics after the first year to go beyond just being a mere self-defense organization, to becoming a revolutionary political front with a popular program. Especially understand that it is not the gun that is our most important and deadly weapon, it is the people, because it is the people who make the revolution, not small sects of armed individuals or gun clubs alone, important as they are to inspire the people and show our resolve.”
