Statement of Indigenous Solidarity

The Victoria Anarchist Bookfair Collective supports the struggles of Indigenous peoples throughout North America to assert their cultural autonomy and territorial sovereignty. Victoria is located on the traditional overlapping territories of the Songhees and Esquimalt peoples, who have endured the seizure of their land and repeated attempts to obliterate their culture through multiple forces of colonization. The resilience and strength of these and other communities, who make ancestral connections to this region in the face of injustice, challenges us to support them and all Indigenous people in the ongoing struggle against colonialism, capitalism, and cultural genocide.
