Join us this Saturday, August 19th as we Confront White Supremacy from Charlottesville to the White House.
The events in Charlottesville are not an anomaly; they are happening all over America. In cities like Durham, Tampa and New Orleans, people are organizing to take down racist monuments. Symbols of white supremacy take different forms; for some it is a monument, for others it’s street name or campus building. For many it is an institution that continues to inflict harm on their people.
This week GGJ joins our ally organization Witness for Peace for a Week of Action for Berta Cáceres. Yesterday marked the 8th anniversary of the Honduran coup. Since then, violence in the country has increaced significantly, specifically towards activists, the defenders of land, justice and human rights.
The fight is not over, but Standing Rock is winning!
“This is a turning point, and this is a real victory, for us as Native people that have lived through genocide. And we’re still here! And we’ve never changed our story over 500 years: that you have to take care of the Earth. So that she can take care of us."
- Kandi Mossett, Indiegnous Environmental Network
As the It Takes Roots to Weather the Storm People's Caravan heads to Philadelphia to confront the DNC, we continue our call to action for Justice for Berta Cáceres and all the other Honduran activists whose lives have been taken violently because of their organizing to defend Indigenous people, the Earth and women, and their struggle for self-determination.
