DIGNITY AND AUTONOMY: COUNCIL OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES OF OAXACA-RICARDO
FLORES MAGON ON SPEAKING TOUR IN ONTARIO AND QUEBEC OCTOBER 12TH AT 7:00PM
CARLETON UNIVERSITY, TORY BUILDING ROOM 208
CIPO-RFM: Who We Are and Why We Fight
Representatives from the Council of Indigenous Peoples of Oaxaca-Ricardo
Flores Magon will be speaking at Carleton about their work promoting
social, political and human rights including collective and individual
land rights. They will also speak about projects that are designed to
promote self-sufficiency and community development in a way that respects
local culture and ecosystems while actively defending land, nature and resources.

CIPO-RFM is an organization of indigenous communities in construction and
contradiction. It is an organization that fights for autonomy and
self-determination so that communities can have their own governments and
laws, without alliance to particular parties and with their own identified
needs as their priority. Our communities demand respect for our
territories, our way of life, our way of seeing the world, our way of
organizing, our language, and our culture.

The nature of the resistance of Indigenous Peoples in “Mexico” to state
and corporate attempts to appropriate their lands and to assimilate them
highlights the transnational aspect of the struggle for Indigenous Rights
and the importance of solidarity with Indigenous Peoples. This is
especially relevant in “Canada” given historical events as well as recent
and ongoing attacks on Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination such
as the illegal sale of Six Nations land near Caledonia.

This event is being organized by the North Eastern Federation of
Anarco-Communists (NEFAC) Ici La Otra, OPIRG-Carleton, and the Indigenous
Peoples Solidarity Movement –Ottawa (IPSM)
