Before colonialism, our ancestors lived in relative harmony with the land and the animals.
Colonized people created food forests like the Amazon, floating and underground gardens as well as spectacular structures that the colonizers thought (and some still do) could only come from aliens or a “divine” being
We have, and struggle to continue, to live in harmony with Mother Earth. Our balance has been disrupted or destroyed by colonialism along with the ecosystems. Here’s a brief understanding of how ecosystems work:
There are different components to an ecosystem including consumers, decomposers and producers. Each of these work together to create various circles of life so that the ecosystem stays in balance.
Recently, it’s been reported that 22 species of animals have gone extinct, including several birds, mussels, fish and a type of bat and fish; that means things are way out of balance.
Each of these species played a unique role in their ecosystem and the knowledge we could have learned from them and their role in the ecosystem is lost forever. The ecosystem itself will be forever changed as well because of this.
A perfect example are mussels, which are decomposers in aquatic systems. They are considered the “engineers” of most ecosystems as they make it more suitable for themselves and other aquatic animals.
They work to keep the environment clean by taking in organic matter and producing nutrients that are readily available to other organisms.
According to the report, the world has lost eight mussel species… that means eight ecosystems have been permanently affected.
This was announced days before another colonial disaster occurred: yet another oil spill, this one off the coast of Southern California. This led to fish and birds washing up ashore dead and soaked in oil.
About 126,000 gallons of crude oil was spilled this past Saturday, October 2nd, creating a 13-square-mile slick along Huntington and Newport Beaches.
Both of these beaches are close to two essential stops along the Pacific Flyway, a bird migration route that millions of birds take every year.
Each of these oil spills bring incalculable devastation to ecosystems worldwide but especially this location which is being contaminated in the middle of migration season. We cannot allow colonialism to continue on this horrific path of the destruction of our planet.
Colonized people have always lived in harmony with the Earth and, once we unite and take our power back, we can make sure no living being lives at the expense of another.
It’s time to stop begging for “legislation” and “laws” to be passed from a state that was illegally founded upon the genocide of Colonized peoples AND the destruction of the land. We gotta act now and you can do that with your support.
If you’d like to help in these efforts, you can contact our Ministry of People’s Affairs where we’re building up communities by teaching them how to be independent of the ineffective, corrupt state.
From preparing for Natural Events (like flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc), growing our own fresh food for our communities and supporting each other through medical contradictions, we can build a world where we can take care of ourselves and not rely on a state that continues to kill and neglect us.
