This week over 2,000 Water Protectors have traveled from across the United States, Mexico, and Canada to gather with frontline Indigenous leaders for a historic, three-day Treaty People Gathering in Northern Minnesota.
During the Gathering, these Defenders of Life will unite in honor of the Natural Powers, our love of Nature, and for a sustainable future for all. They will share in nonviolent, direct actions to lift up their demands to U. S. President Biden: honor the treaties, defend the water, and stop the Line 3 tar sands pipeline once and for all. They need our help.
Sadly, this is old news. This story is centuries old. It repeats and repeats. If we are to enjoy a human future on this planet we will need more and more people willing to stand up for the importance of Nature and Spirit over profit and greed. Our support of the Defenders of Life this weekend must extend into the days and years ahead.
