Everyone Calls Themselves an Ally Zine
… until it’s time to do some real ally shit.
Xhopakelxhit, a member of Ancestral Pride, (some badass, grassroots, indigenous, direct action land defenders from unceded Ahousat territory) made this zine about how to be anti-racist/anti-capitalist white settler ally to people in all kinds of struggles—indigenous and otherwise.
Featuring artwork from Gord Hill and Annie Banks, this zine offers very concrete action ideas and resources that anyone can empower themselves with in the battle for restorative justice and building allies with settlers.
“Not everyone is a warrior. Not everyone wants to be in confrontational situations with the police and governments, or angry people. However, most of the people who fall into this category are often pigeonholed as being a bull horn blow hard and march organizer. Creating a culture of resistance and support requires us all to know what our strong suits and talents. Additionally, we must cultivate them so they benefit the cause in a manner that is respectful and meaningful.”
