The NCAI is meeting in Portland this year, and I got to talking with an attendee today. We chatted about this and that, and with a neutral, reserved, tone, she mentioned the treaty violations that led to the Congress’ foundation, and the fact that some natives contest the due process of voting and election by means of which the congress proceeds. Just a quick reminder of the peoples that have not been included in the US’s “social contract” for far longer than the current generation of disaffected bourgeoisie.

It seems that the message of power has finally hit the population in the US that used to think it was allied with the ruling class, the largely white middle class. Is #ows the beginning of “white solidarity”? The ruling class was only and always allied purely with itself, and its better late than never that this truth is realized across all demographics.
