~~~~~X~~~~~~~~~~X~~~~~~~~~~X~~~~~~~~~~X~~~~~

we have different stories. of missing and murdered sisters.
of kidnapped children. of languages and cultures stolen.
of lands defiled by mining, by corporations.

we have different stories. of war, poverty and the destruction
of our lands. we came across borders. some as slaves.
some as temporary workers. too often deported.

we have the same stories. of being pushed out of our homes.
of racism. of police violence. of struggle. of resistance.

we are indigenous to Turtle Island. refusing to be colonized.
we are indigenous to other lands. migrants. refusing to be settlers.

our struggles are separate. our struggles are linked.

we are taking back the land. we are building a sanctuary city.
we are fighting. with hope. for justice. for dignity.
for all of us.
