These excerpts come from a Native Women’s Liberation Front newsletter published in 1970. Four different cases of direct action land struggles waged by various Native American groups are described, including the occupation of Fort Lawson military base, Stanley Island, Alcatraz Island, and the southern tip of land previously belonging to the Pit River Indians. In each of these cases, Native American activists are seeking to reclaim the land that belongs to them and are calling on readers to join them in their fight.

What is ALEC? – Project Baldwin (2011)

2011-Present, Blockade/Barricade, Date, Defining the Enemy, Occupation, Privatization, Sabotage/Ecotage, Tactics of Disruption, The Bourgeoisie

This is a call to action from Project Baldwin against the American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC) November meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona. Project Baldwin argues that ALEC is an organization that brings corporations and legislators together to draft legislation that destroys the environment, increases the criminalization, incarceration, and deportation of individuals, and divides indigenous communities, all while those involved continue to profit from these new laws. Project Baldwin asserts that in 2009 alone, over 200 bills that ALEC helped organize were passed into federal law. The group is calling on individuals to join the fight for four days in Scottsdale, Arizona, and help employ “a diversity of tactics” to stop ALEC’s November meeting from happening.
