#DecolonizeHistory is about interrupting space, addressing colonial roots and undoing processes of white supremacy.
Historical narratives are most often presented without the context of colonization, slavery and imperialism despite the huge role they play on all aspects of life.
Hoping this project raises awareness about injustices towards Trayvon Martin, subject to a system of racism that never served to protect his life, Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen arrested and detained in Guantanamo Bay when he was only 15 years old, and Assata Shakur & Huey Newton, labelled “terrorists” for actively resisting systemic racism on stolen land.
This is the beginning, there are so many more narratives to be shared and #DecolonizeHistory aims to illuminate the role that processes of colonialism continue to play out in society.

this is much needed right now in the midst of everything else we’ve been doing in solidarity for mike - let’s not forget how Black, disabled folks are also targets, especially those with autism, due to behaviors cops love to read as “aggressive”, on top of their racism.
Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said. The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.
THIS IS TERRIFYING AND HORRIBLE

Tonight is a New Moon in the constellation of Virgo. A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle. During this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest over the coming month. Tomorrow the Moon will start waxing (coming into being full) so it is a time to bring wanted things into our life.
The earth is going through a major transition at the moment, dark is taking over light, cold is taking over warmth, death is taking over life as we speed into Autumn. We will be able to see and feel these energies all around us. We can also use these energies of transformation to become what we want to be, to shed our skin and start a fresh and make changes that will improve our lives.
The New Moon in Virgo is the perfect time to push ourselves into work, to get things done, make lists of tasks and tick them off one by one. Virgo is the worker sign and you will get great pleasure from getting jobs done. Do work on your home or start a new project or hobby. There is nothing better than working hard on something, seeing the results and reaping the rewards of your labour. You can also strengthen your financial foundation. Set your intention for a financial increase this Autumn by doing work you enjoy, such as making money from a hobby. There are many ways that you can attract abundance to yourself. For instance, adding value to the lives of others, for the share joy of it, makes you irresistibly attractive. People will want to help you. People will support your success. Your love and light makes the world a better place. You are a magnet that draws wealth to you.
The Virgo New Moon brings attention to the details and listening to your conscience or rather the wise voice from your soul. Look deep within yourself and ask yourself what it is that will make you happy, what will make you feel whole, what is it you’re lacking or missing? Make a plan of action to put right what you feel may be wrong. Don’t focus on lack or what is not working. Focus on what you have accomplished. Try new things. Make mistakes. Make many mistakes. The only way to find what works for you is through trial and error. There is a distinction between successful people and the unsuccessful. Successful people never give up. They never stop trying. Eventually you will figure it out.
This New Moon is a time for a deep cleansing, to get rid of clutter not just in the home but your emotional clutter. Let the power of the Dark Moon cleanse your spirit. Move to a place of allowing and acceptance. Set your intention for what you want to create this fall. Stay out of negative thinking. Instead ask, ‘What supports my balance?‘ Don’t project out into the future. You are not there yet. You can scare yourself with the ‘What if’s.’ Stay present. The past is history, the future is a mystery, the present is the gift. Your power and effectiveness are in the here and now.
Have a blessed New Moon, May the Goddess watch over you
