For most of the history of the socialist movement on this continent, decolonization and support for the liberation of Indigenous People has taken a backseat to economic concerns.
Fortunately, this is beginning to change in the so-called United States. Decolonization is rightly getting an increased focus on the left. Workers World Party and the Party for Socialism and Liberation both call for self determination for Indigenous People in their platform.
Decolonizing the ‘Western Hemisphere’ and assisting Indigenous nations in taking back control of this continent is a priority for The Forge. This is important for its own sake, but it also would deal a fatal blow to capitalism. A full decolonization process in “North America” would end the United States’ role as the center of the capitalist system.
Solidarity with all Indigenous struggles to take back control of the lands of this hemisphere and everywhere, including Palestine!
