INDIGENOUS SOLIDARITY

Indigenous solidarity work is an integral part of No One Is Illegal-Toronto’s political work. Our ongoing analysis is shaped by an understanding that displacement and migration are intricately linked to the extensive and pervasive effects of colonialism, particularly European colonialism. As a people’s movement that is geographically situated on what the Haudenosaunee (people of the Long House) call “turtle island” we must understand our own role and responsibility in the genocide, displacement and theft of land of indigenous people in the Americas. The clear links between colonization and migration highlights the need for our work to be intricately linked in solidarity with the struggles of Indigenous nations in the Americas (and particularly those on land we occupy) for sovereignty, land and freedom.
