A Muslim Feminist Declares War On Us White Colonial Racist Genocidal Settlers…

This stuff is like automatic typing…I would love to have a look at her masters thesis…

Defining Muslim Feminist Politics through Indigenous Solidarity Activism by Shaista Patel…

“We therefore need to craft our identities as Muslim feminists or anti-racist feminists in ways that are local and global, that make land and sovereignty of Indigenous nations central so that we do not end up reinstating the same matrix of power relations which makes the workings of Canada as a white settler colonial and racist state possible. This centering of Indigenous sovereignty in our politics is not some charitable move. Beyond the need to constantly examine our own complicity in maintaining oppressive relationships of power, such politics of solidarity are also urgently needed because unlike those of us on the side of critical anti-racist and anti-colonial politics, the Right is getting stronger. In Ontario, for instance, anti-Native activists who work against the Haudenosaunee people are ‘friends’ with the anti-Palestinians and Islamophobic groups such as the Jewish Defense League (JDL) and the Canadian Hindu Advocacy Group.”
