From NM to Palestine: Ending Israel/US Police Exchange, Reclaiming Safety

From_NM_to_palestine.jpg

One of the most dangerous places where the regimes of Trump and Netanyahu converge is in exchange programs that bring together police, ICE, border patrol, and FBI from the US with soldiers, police, border agents, etc. from Israel. In these programs, “worst practices” are shared to promote and extend discriminatory and repressive policing in both countries. These include extrajudicial executions, shoot-to-kill policies, police murders, racial profiling, massive spying and surveillance, deportation and detention, and attacks on human rights defenders. 

This event will feature Native and Palestinian-American speakers who can testify to the impact of deadly police violence on their communities. We will also discuss what actions activists can take back to their communities to bring an end to this violence.

Speakers:
MELISSA TSO, advisor to JVP End The Deadly Exchange Campaign and lead organizer in The Red Nation
JENNIFER MARLEY, lead organizer in The Red Nation
JEFF HAAS, Santa Feans for Justice in Palestine
Palestinian members of UNM Muslim Student Association
BEKAH WOLF, New Mexico Immigrant Law Center and Steering Committee member for the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights
Lori Rudolph, Jewish Voice for Peace - ABQ

Refreshments will be provided!

Flight (01) a Benefit Event for Immigrant Awareness

Flight_(01)_A_benefit_event.jpg

A group of artists are gathering forces to create a visual, spoken word event that benefits the NM Dream Team, New Mexico Immigrant Law Center & the Santa Fe Dreamers Project.

Flight (01) is the first of three events that is partially sponsored by the Right of Return Fellowship which invests in formerly incarcerated artists to create original works that can further criminal justice reform in partnership with advocates and organizers. Sheri Crider is 1 of 7 inaugural recipient’s of this fellowship. As part of Flight (01) four visual artists will create works that amplify the conversation surrounding immigration and mass incarceration. Each artist brings their own signature work to the event as a collectible item. The proceeds benefit local organizations that support community members impacted by these issues. Jodie Herrera has designed a custom tote with a recent design informed by her recent body of work, Women Across Borders. Kei and Molly have designed one of their gorgeous linens with migratory birds that are featured in limited edition bird mobiles by Sheri Crider. The birds design are conceptually tied to currently detained immigrants at Cibola Detention Center. Flight will grow over the year in a series of events, culminating in a large scale installation and series of events at the University of New Mexico Art Museum in August.

Farmington Resource Advisory Council Meeting 

Public_meeting.jpg

The Farmington District Resource Advisory Council (RAC) is holding a *public* meeting on January 30 from 8AM-4PM at the BLM Farmington District Office, 6251 College Blvd., Suite A, Farmington, NM 87402.

The Farmington District RAC consists of 10 members chartered and appointed by the Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke. The RAC advises BLM resource managers regarding management plans and proposed resource actions on public land in the BLM's Farmington District. 

BLM Farmington has already leased 91% of available lands to fracking and already this year is offering up another 4,500 acres of sacred land in Greater Chaco in its March oil and gas lease sale. Soon, we expect BLM to release its Resource Management Plan Amendment which will outline and analyze further fracking development across the Greater Chaco Landscape. 

The Farmington RAC provides local guidance to BLM. Let's make sure they guide BLM toward the service of the people. Our health impacts, clean air, water, sacred land and ancient heritage cannot be sacrificed for fracking. 

We'll be there bearing witness, engaging council members, and submitting public comment to protect Greater Chaco from fracking. We hope you'll join us.

One Billion Rising - Santa Fe

One_billion_rising_santa_fe.png

This year has been an evolutionary moment. In 2013 when One Billion Rising first launched, we felt the electric power when millions of women and men came together across the globe on one day to rise, dance and highlight the epidemic of violence against women and girls. It has been exciting to witness that electricity gain even more traction as women have stepped forward to give personal voice to the issue, igniting and re-igniting many women's movements and bringing the issue to the forefront of global discussions for women's rights. As we stand on the shoulders of the women’s and human rights movements who came before us, nationally and globally, we know that we have built up our muscles for this exact moment. We honor the women who have come forward and those who are unable to give voice to their story. We celebrate the solidarity, persistence and resistance that have brought us to this moment.
