PIELC panel- cascadia against empire: bioregional organizing from a decolonial perspective

I’m going to be on a panel this friday over on the Kalapuya side of the mountains.  Should be interesting….


Cascadia Against Empire: Bioregional Organizing from a Decolonial Perspective (Organizer: Emmalyn Garrett) (EMU Coquille) 

“For Pacific Northwest dreamers, artists, and activists, “Cascadia” is a term often evocative of a better world. We will discuss the history of grassroots organizing around Cascadian bioregionalism, uses and misuses of Cascadia as myth and metaphor, and the realities of confronting a legacy of settler colonialism on a stolen landbase. We will present Cascadia as an extralegal and post-legal vision of bioregionalism, decolonization, and land liberation rooted in a pragmatic focus on action in current organizing context.

Panelists: Cathasaigh Ó Corcráin, Co-editor Autonomy Cascadia: A Journal of Bioregional Decolonization; Alexander Reid Ross, Journal Editorial Collective Member, Earth First!; Kayla Godowa Tufti, Member Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Contributing Writer, Eugene Weekly; Paul Roland, Activist, Earth First!, and Organizer, Cascadia Now! Portland Chapter; Emmalyn Garrett, Board Member, Cascadia Now!, Cascadia Branch Portland.”
