After a very engaging week in Uppsala university on RE-Claimings, Empowerings, Inspirings for indigenous knowledge and de-colonization we took this picture to support the Mi’kmaq and their allies in the struggle against fracking on their land. Yesterday 800 (edit 200) policemen invaded Elsipogtog a village of 800 people with teargas, rubberbullets, snipers and brute force. This shows how the interest of the fracking companies and modern colonialism from authorities continue to devestate land, water and indigenous peoples. This happens all over the globe and the resistance against it needs to know no boundaries. This picture is from the 3rd supradisciplinary feminist technoscience symposium in Uppsala. This stands for a new way of studies trancending the limits of eurocentric colonial knowledge. It is inspiring to see academics take action and study how to de-colonize ourselves and the world!
We wish you all luck in your struggle against fracking!
