MEDIA NOTICE: THURSDAY (11/18) 11AM PDT -  FB LIVE!

Indigenous leaders from North and South America will speak out against proposed tropical forest offsets by the state of California, hosted by Indigenous Rising Media!

This will be a live presentation on Indigenous Rising Media Facebook page! 11am Pacific Time, 11-15-18 
Join and watch!

Background: 
Carbon trading mechanisms allow the fossil fuel industry to continue to emit carbon into the atmosphere, as well as devastate the health of communities living near extraction sites, infrastructure projects and refineries. Tropical forest offsets impact Indigenous people who have protected their living forests for thousands of years and have been shown to be ineffective & divide communities. On Friday, the California Air Resources Board will vote on this proposed California Tropical Forest Standard. Urge the Board to vote NO to reject false solutions!

California’s Tropical Forest Standard (TFS) is a threat to the Earth & to Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination!

Join us at the California Air Resources Board meeting on Friday, November 16th to say NO to the Tropical Forest Standard #NoTFS!

Carbon trading mechanisms allow the fossil fuel industry to continue to emit carbon into the atmosphere, as well as devastate the health of communities living near extraction sites, infrastructure projects and refineries. Tropical forest offsets impact Indigenous people who have protected their living forests for thousands of years and have been shown to be ineffective and divide communities.

We need real solutions for reducing emissions and preventing deforestation, not false solutions like TFS. CARB should reject TFS outright, and regulate pollution to improve the lives of Californians, which is what their mandate is – not to support schemes to trade pollution permits across borders.

California must protect #CommunitiesNotCorporations stop trading away our clean air, listen to impacted communities, and focus on reducing emissions here at home to advance #RealClimateLeadership!

Between the Supreme Court decision and knowing that the Federal Government still recognizes #ColumbusDay, this past week has been especially triggering and re-traumatizing. That is why for #IndigenousPeoplesDay we are highlighting three womxn and femme led projects that center Indigenous feminism, the cure, if you will, to systems like patriarchy and colonization
•
From the highly successful digital zine @indigenousgoddessgang, celebrating the reclaiming of indigeneity, to the nations first Native birth center, and to a start up that emboldens Native women to be business owners and social entrepreneurs, @nativewomenlead — we are so grateful for these initiatives that are truly smashing the patriarchy brought forth by colonization
•
“Here are three Indigenous led projects that center Indigenous feminism and that hold patriarchy accountable, not only outside of Indigenous communities, but also within our own communities because let’s be clear, patriarchy did not stop on the boundaries of reservations or tribal territories. Sadly, these systemic norms have also impacted our men, our tribal governement and even our women — we call this lateral oppression. That is why these projects and these individuals must be supported, followed, and celebrated for their brave work in the world”

Today is ‪#NativeWomensEqualPay Day. It represents the fact that, on average, Native women are paid just 57% of what white men are paid. Across Turtle Island (United States) Native and Indigenous women and our allies are rising up to support and embolden ‬one another to demand equal pay. Not only is our work as Native women deserving of equal pay but Native Women, especially, have and continue to overcome the worst of patriarchy and institutional and systemic racism. Today we demand equal pay, that is a step forward, and we also know that Native women deserve so much more, like justice for #mmiw , the end of violence to our Mother Earth , and for our cultures and traditions to not be co-opted and appropriated

Our communities ARE the solutions to the climate crisis! Our agenda is clear: to build a permanent future for us all. •

•
Today hundreds of frontline, Indigenous and grassroots peoples joined together to block the entrance of the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS)  to make our voices heard. •

Stand with communities, not corporations! GCAS is nothing but corporations and governments trading carbon credit to continue to pollute. Mother Earth and the Sky are not your marketplace. Our Future will not be traded. Our communities and forests are not for sale.

Just two days before the #GlobalClimateActionSummit Indigenous Peoples of the North and South delivered an open letter to the Governor of California, Jerry Brown and The Governors Climate and Forest Task Force. The demand: dismantle the #GCFTaskForce and keep oil in the ground
•
“You cannot commodify the Sacred — we reject these market based climate change solutions and projects such as the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation program (REDD+), because they are false solutions that further destroy our rights, our ability to live in our forests, and our sovereignty and self-determination. False solutions to climate change and climate disruption destroy both our material and spiritual relationship to the Earth. The GCF does not represent us and has no authority over our peoples and territories”.

Today Indigenous Peoples from across the world led 30,000 people at the Rise For Climate, Jobs & Justice March in San Francisco and kicked off the It Takes Roots - Solidarity to Solutions (Sol2Sol) Week
•
California Indigenous Peoples lead the Indigenous Contingent and following was the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Contingent
•
As Indigenous Peoples we recognize that Climate Change directly impacts our self-determination, food sovereignty, and our sacred relationship to water, therefore climate change impacts our ability to thrive and continue our traditional life ways.
We also recognize that violence against the land, especially fossil fuel extraction, is violence against women
•
This is why we challenge market based solutions to climate change like cap and trade, carbon trading, and carbon pricing - agendas being promoted by the Global Climate Action Summit. These mechanisms only allow corporations and governments to continue to extract and buy their way out of destroying the land, water and climate
•
Today, we fulfilled prophecy by unifying Indigenous Peoples from the north and south to RISE for a just transition. We also marched along with our relatives and allies within the It Takes Roots Coalition: Climate Justice Alliance, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, Right To The City Alliance

ONLY 3 DAYS RELATIVES

On September 8th we will march with thousands of people in San Francisco, we will paint murals in the streets and raise our voice so that the powers that will be reminded that Climate Justice needs to be inclusive of racial, and economic justice

Climate Change impacts Indigenous, communities of color, and poor communities first and foremost, therefore their voices and experiences are most critical to listen to when it comes to climate justice
•
After the 8th, @idlenomoresf @cjaourpower @ggjalliance @ourcityrtc along with allies @blackmesawc @native_movement @indigenousgoddessgang @indigenousclimateaction will lead and participate in the “ It Takes Roots #Solidarity2Solutions Week of Action “ where we will lead non-violent direct actions around the Global Climate Action Summit to demand an end to false climate solutions like carbon pricing. We will also hold local community tours, trainings and our very own #Sol2Sol Summit to uplift grassroots and frontline solutions to #ClimateChange

ONE WEEK till #RiseforClimate March and the #SolidarityToSolutions Week of Action
•
This past week has been full of historic and urgent moments when it comes to the climate, our health, and safety. Early last week Trump announced his new energy plan, the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule, which has been criticized by even his own administration as a step backwards, not only in energy innovation, but also in creating a safe environment.
Yet, on Thursday, August 30th, we saw the Canadian Federal Court of Appeals reject the government’s approval to build the Trans-Mountain Pipeline, which was a result of persistent leadership and resistance by the Coast Salish and Secwepemc Nations of the Pacific Northwest. This moment reminds us that when we build strategic alliances and embolden each other to speak truth to power, we can change history, policy, and ensure a safer planet for generations to come!
•
This is why we are mobilizing in ONE week for the Solidarity to Solutions (Sol2Sol) Week.
•
On September 8th we will kick of the week with the Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice March where tens of thousands of youth, climate leaders, and Indigenous Peoples from California, the nation and the world will take to the streets to demand climate solutions that are inclusive of economic and racial justice

Today we want to express our deep respect and love to our Coast Salish relatives and our relatives within interior British Columbia for their dedication to protecting Indigenous Rights, Land, Water, and the climate, therefore all humanity, from the #transmountainpipeline
•
The decision by the Canadian Federal Court of Appeals to halt construction of the Trans Mountain expansion project is a result of persistent indigenous leadership and resistance
•
Eriel DeRanger, Executive Director of @indigenousclimateaction explained what this decision means best:
“What we want is a fair and equitable process that recognizes our lands as apart of our identities. As Indigenous Peoples that identification with place is much deeper and is rooted in our spirituality and our religion. We can not rob that of our people. I am Athabaskan Chippewyan First Nation, but our traditional name is K'ai Taile Dene, meaning people of the willow”. This is a reference to the delta that we come from, that delta is within our identities...so when you destroy these places (with pipelines and extraction), you are destroying our identities. When we talk about protecting our rights as Indigenous Peoples, we are talking about protecting our cultural rights, our identities, lands, and ecosystems.”
•
Find the full video on @indigenousrising and @indigenousclimateaction Facebook page
•
We also want to highlight the @tinyhousewarriors and the leadership of Kanahus Manuel, who have been critical in this fight. This movement not only demonstrated innovative resistance but also a solution to the problem. Please follow and support
