No Peace on Stolen Land: From Standing Rock to Palestine

  • James Room, 4th floor Barnard Hall 3009 Broadway New York, NY 10027 (map)

Join Columbia University Apartheid Divest to say no to the DAPL, no to the occupation of indigenous lands from the U.S. to Palestine, no to the plunder of native resources by imperialist corporations with no regard for our sovereignty, what we hold sacred, and our planet. 

Hear from Maile Hampton, an afro-native organizer from the Bay Area who has spent years in the student movement and anti-racist movement, about what it means to fight for the self-determination of all oppressed people. They will talk about organizing strategies, experiences from the struggle against the DAPL at Oceti Sakowin and across the U.S., police repression, cultural resistance, and people’s power. Learn from a water protector how we can best support frontline communities in the struggle against environmental destruction and settler colonialism here in the U.S. and how to build international indigenous solidarity with Palestine. From Standing Rock to Palestine, Settler violence is a crime! Resistance is justified! Mni Wiconi! #NoDAPL #FreeAllWaterProtectors #FreeAllPoliticalPrisioners#FreeRedFawn #FreeLeonardPeltier 

“When so many people and the system are going after you, you know that the things you’re saying are powerful and true. And you know that they know the things you’re saying are powerful and true.” Maile Hampton
