#INMroots Resistance in the Blood

Welcome to #INMroots Number Seven!   The goal of the #INMroots newsletter is to share news stories that promote Indigenous rights and sovereignty and the protection of land and water. The newsletter will share our stories and actions, and honour resistance, while celebrating the world that we are protecting.

 

INMroots-_7_copy.jpgWe are all invited to add to this newsletter. Post your story now! The deadline for the next newsletter is midnight on Sunday May 10th. We will accept all submissions that are connected to Indigenous and environmental issues as long as they do not condone or promote violence or lateral violence or include hate speech.  

 

The next newsletter will be published on Monday May 11th, so check your inboxes!

 

If you see a news story on your social media networks that is worth sharing, please tag #INMroots.
