Peaceful Reoccupation of Native Lands

It is US law to "support reconciliation efforts between the United States and the Native Hawaiian people" (Public Law 103-150) but GI Joe has parked himself all around Hawai'i and stolen lands and harbors. 7 military golf courses on Occupied Oahu!

☹️ 

But in Toronto, Canada, youth has taken peaceful action. Government seems to be listening.

City of Toronto spokesman Alex Burke: "The City supports such initiatives & recognizes the rights of the members of Wiigwaasikaa & others to gather and participate in peaceful protests and acts of political expression. The City also appreciates that Wiigwaasikaa's mandate is relevant to current political issues & ongoing efforts to advance reconciliation."
