Dineh families requesting direct on-land support

For four decades, the Dineh communities of Black Mesa have fought to stop the U.S government and Peabody Energy Company's exploitation of their homelands and communities. Today, families remain, steadfastly resisting the mine, colonialism, and forced relocation. 

In the words of one resister, "WE NEED YOUR PHYSICAL PRESENCE OUT HERE, ASAP! WE don't ask for monies, just your good-spirited will to come out for a few days/weeks/months and immerse yourself into a cultural community under threat, and accept the daily challenges in supporting these native elders' existence. And yes, we are not asking for monies because we wish to maintain that human sovereignty, and not seek lawyers or travels to far off cities to protest."

You are being invited to the resistance communities' lands to support their resistance and deter governmental and corporate harassment.

Support the Unist'ot'en Encampment

Members of the Wet'suwet'en clan are re-occupying their land to stop an array of oil and gas pipelines planned for that area without their permission.

As political prisoner David Gilbert (among many others) has pointed out, it's important that our local struggles take inspiration from and lend our strength to global struggles, especially those struggles led by indigenous people and people of color.

RAMPS has supported the Unist'ot'en encampment financially and by volunteering, and we call on our friends and allies to do the same.

November 2016 Update: Powering Resistance

posted by finocchio, Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016
 

Happy fall from the Coal River Valley! Here’s a quick update on what we’ve been up to, and some of what we’re doing next.

Red Warrior Camp logoSTANDING ROCK RESISTANCE

Since August, RAMPS members and friends have been supporting the native water protectors at Standing Rock in their fight to protect water and sacred lands from the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline. We’ve mostly been involved at Red Warrior Camp, created to facilitate direct action against the pipeline. It’s an intense fight, and represents a crucial moment for the broader struggles for climate justice and indigenous sovereignty, and a test of movement strength and solidarity.

We’re about to send another crew with a truck full of construction tools, a big army tent, medical supplies, and — if we can afford it! — a big generator. You can read more at our fundraiser page. We’ve already raised more than half of our goal! Can you make a donation today, so we can help water protectors dig in for the winter and defeat the pipeline?
