There are striking similarities between the First Nations peoples and the Palestinians. Both were expelled from their lands by European colonialists; both were subjected to genocide. In the case of First Nations, the project largely succeeded. The Palestinians have refused to disappear.
Resistance against injustice is the only option left for most oppressed people.
The plight of Canada’s First Nations is very similar to what the Palestinians are suffering at the hands of the Zionists. In both instances, European settlers invaded and occupied their lands. In Canada, the settlers were very successful in decimating the Natives and subverting their language, culture and heritage. The Palestinians have resisted their occupiers, peacefully as well as with force, and refuse to surrender. Resistance against injustice is the only option left for most oppressed people. There are no laws that protect them.
