APALA's 5th Principle for Collective Liberation is Home and Sovereignty where we acknowledge that many of us are on land stolen from indigenous people, and at the same time, many of us have been removed and disconnected from our homes and cultures by military force, climate change, and corporate greed. For this reason, we work towards a just transition for our planet that prioritizes Indigenous sovereignty and access to good health, housing, and stability for poor and working people across the globe.
This starts with us acknowledging the land that we are on and honoring the people who have been caring for this land. Join us to learn more about the land you are occupying and finding ways to be in solidarity with them in their fights for land back and sovereignty.
