Reportback from Happy Stolen Land Day


This didn’t seem to get posted anywhere else; better late than never:

*** corporate media coverage: http://www.cheknews.ca/happy-stolen-land-day-activists-rally-indigenous-rights-canada-150-343188

In answer to Idle No More’s Unsettling Canada 150 call for a national day of action in honour of the late Secwepemc leader Arthur Manuel, in support of Indigenous self-determination over lands, territories and resources and celebration of the pride and resiliency of indigenous peoples, a lively counter-celebration was held at the colonial legislature buildings in so-called Victoria, British Columbia on July 1, 2017 during the state-sponsored nationalist “Canada Day 150” event.

This took place on the unceded land of the Lekwungen speaking people now known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.

Said one attendee:

“we marched straight into the heart of the beast and our drums thundered round the totem pole, then slowly, surely, as new citizens pledged allegiance to a fantasy, we roared past the stage, sabotaging their national anthem of false idolatry, misplaced glory and violent colonial history

there cannot possibly be a better way to publicly mark this despicable day…thank you to everyone who shared in this action with us…the next 150 years belong to the decolonized!”

Kanahus Manuel of the Secwepemc Women’s Warrior Society says the house is a symbol of sustainability in the face of an environmentally damaging project and is based on homes built at the Standing Rock protest in the United States.
