Indigenous Peoples Planning for the US Social Forum
From: Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN)
Apr 11, 2007
We are calling to action, all Relatives of the Four Directions of our Indigenous/Native communities to participate in the Opening March of the U.S. Social Forum on June 27th at 2pm Eastern Time zone.
The National Planning Committee of the USSF is recognizing the right of our original peoples of these lands to stand first in the line up of the March.
Our traditional territories and sacred lands lie within the colonial government called the United States.
Please come out, bring your issues, drums, songs, Native staffs and flags, and banners to represent the great diversity of our Indigenous Nations in the historical march.
Leading our Indigenous procession in the larger US Social Forum Opening March will be the Native traditional keepers of the Southeastern region surrounding Atlanta.

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
