ENOUGH IS ENOUGH - Close the Camps!

October 14th, 2019 is Indigenous Peoples Day

On this Indigenous Peoples Day we in the north call to our relatives in the south. We see you, we stand with you, we know our migration routes existed long before colonial borders. "Enough is Enough — Close the Camps!"

It is our relatives --Indigenous peoples and poor people -- who are being terrorized by ICE raids, family separation, deportations, and incarceration by the US government. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is inhumanely and unjustly detaining massive numbers of civilians in concentration camps at the border, and the U.S. government is sanctioning the forced separation of families through detentions and deportations.

Those seeking asylum at the border have been forced to leave their native lands due to violent situations or unlivable conditions. Colonial and corporate interests have perpetuated a long history of Indigenous struggle for land and rights; and now more Indigenous Peoples are being displaced due to climate change.

In solidarity with our Indigenous, refugee, and migrant relatives we say: Close the Camps - Enough is Enough! Join the weekly rallies happening across the country.

Teshekpuk Lake has been a place for spiritual, mental, and physical well-being to the Iñupiat Peoples since time immemorial. The Willow Master Development Project is massive, with little to no research on the impact of the cumulative projects across the Arctic Slope. The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was released & the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is collecting public comments.

DEADLINE for Public comment: Oct. 29, 2019
