Statement of Solidarity with Standing Rock

The International Convention of the Industrial Workers of the World stands in solidarity with the resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline.  We call on the labor movement and working class to take a stand against enviromental racism and join the fight for a just transition as our collective future is at stake.  We recognize that the capitalist system that oppresses the working class has always oppressed indigenous people of the world.

Therefore we feel that settlers and indigenous workers should unite to take direct action against colonial industrial capitalism and do everything in our power to restore justice to indigenous people and Mother Earth.  An injury to one is an injury to all.
