Seeds of Peace to support Organization-Based Gathering on Black Mesa
[In early June, Seeds of Peace will be returning to Black Mesa to support an exciting gathering aimed at fostering deeper connections between the Diné struggle for self-determination, cultural survival, and the right to remain on ancestral homelands, and other social, migrant, racial, environmental, and climate justice movements around the country. Please support this important gathering by donating to BMIS at supportblackmesa.org]

Because this exciting gathering differs from other BMIS gatherings and the participants have already been determined, there are other ways for the BMIS supporter network to plug in and support. This is an opportunity to move your resources, as folks who have had the rich experience of spending time with the on-land resistance communities, to enable folks from other frontline resistance movements to connect to the 40 year-long struggle for self-determination on Black Mesa/Big Mountain. The gathering builds on the legacy of diverse support and cross movement building with members of the Xicano movement, Farm Workers, anti-Contra organizations, Black Liberation movement, Japanese and U.S anti-nuclear movements, and peace movements who participated in the Big Mountain support network. Currently, we see the anti-extraction and climate justice movements centering Indigenous issues and sacred sites and treaty struggles gaining visibility; this is a great moment to foster these cross-movement connections on Black Mesa/Big Mountain. We are asking for your financial support to help fund travel for the various organizations who will attend. Checks made payable to “Black Mesa Indigenous Support” with “Organization-based Gathering” in memo line.
