We are currently supporting two organizations: Somi Se’k Village Base Camp & L’eau Est La Vie Camp. We want to provide consistent, stable funding for these activists so they can continue their work. As we grow, we will add new organizations to who we can fund. We have a third pool of funds saved for emergency response such as mutual aid disaster relief work, animal rescue, houseless eviction support, urgent work in supporting deforestation organizing, etc . Every month, we will donate what we have to them. 40% to Somi Se’k, 40% to L’eau Est La Vie, and 20% into our emergency fund. We want to offer what we can, when it is needed. If you are an activist or an organization who needs support, please reach out to us!
We support Direct Action that supports:
Environmental & Social Justice
Endangered Species Protection
Under the leadership of the Esto’k Gna (Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe of Texas), the Somi Se’k Village Base Camp’s mission is to populate and support a network of front Line Encampments (Wolf Pack) villages along the so called Mexican-American border, protecting indigenous sacred sites, resisting construction of the LNG (fracked gas) terminal, accompanying pipelines, and educating people about the environmental devastation the Border Wall will cause. We fight to stop the senseless endangerment of people, animals, and the environment.
Somi Se’k Village Base Camp will support and train activists to populate these villages. We operate with the understanding that the issues arising around the border-- the right to migrate, destruction of the environment and indigenous sacred sites, and the inhumane incarceration of migrant children-- are intersectional and are symptoms of centuries-long control and oppression by colonizers.
We are Natives and non-Natives, Water Protectors, students, community organizers, other collectives, working people, military veterans working under the leadership of indigenous communities. We are people of all races, genders, ethnicities, political and spiritual backgrounds, and ages. We recognize our co-dependence and understand that we are one people.
We are dedicated to non-violent and prayerful action and resistance. Protect Ahumatau Mete’l ! Protect Somi Se’k!
L’eau Est La Vie camp is a floating pipeline resistance camp. Although they have no leaders, they value the voices of indigenous, black, femme, and two spirit organizers. They fight in the bayous of Louisiana, Chata Houma Chittimacha Atakapaw territory, to stop the Bayou Bridge Pipeline, an Energy Transfer Partners project and the tail end of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
BBP resistance is a continuation of the fight in Standing Rock, and furthermore a continuation of the centuries old fight to protect sacred stolen territory. But unlike the NoDAPL sacred fight, this camp must be smaller and more vetted, because of the fragile ecosystem, the surveillance, and the sacred wishes of the people of this land.
