"Today in Oaxaca City, Mexico a stunning new mural was unveiled to coincide with the Idle No More day of action that has been taking place across the globe. The mural is dedicated to ‘the people who organise to defend the common good’ and depicts elements of community life under threat in many indigenous communities: water, animals, crops and the communities themselves." 
Revolution Is Eternal for a world where all worlds are possible


“Thank you for your statement of solidarity and ongoing support!! We recognize that Indigenous people suffer the same violent colonialism globally. The Idle No More movement has given these issues attention, and will use strategic action to shift the current practice of expoiting the land and resources. We must also continue to build consciousness in our communities and build alliances. We support your struggles and look forward to working together in this spiritual revolution. In solidarity, Sheelah McLean”
