Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

  • New York, NY

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City.

No Oil in Our Soil: Keystone XL Pipeline Protest

  • Gallatin County Government

U.S. President Donald Trump's administration approved TransCanada Corp's Keystone XL pipeline on 3/24/17. The approval reverses a decision by former President Barack Obama to reject the project, but the company still needs to win financing, acquire local permits, and fend off likely legal challenges for the pipeline to be built.
This is where we come in with our voices. 
Come out and join us on Sunday April 2nd from 1pm-3pm for a rally at the Gallatin Co. Courthouse. We'll march from the courthouse down the sidewalks of Main Street and loop back down Main St. to the courthouse.
We'll have pre-written letters for everyone to sign demanding Sen. Tester and Sen. Daines to come out publicly against the Keystone XL.
We'll also have information on how to contact the special interest groups and banks that are backing this pipeline. 
Come join and have your voices heard!!
Afterwards we encourage everyone to go over to the Labor Temple and knock doors for Rob Quist.

Thanks for everyones support! We can do this!
