(please read) The 9/4/2020 Sámi Liberation Front - a Sámi-led liberation movement
Greetings from Sápmi my fellow indigenous peoples of the world (and non-indigenous comrades in solidarity):
On September 4th of 2020, Sámi people living under colonial rule in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia gathered together in secret to establish the “Sámi Liberation Front”. The Sámi Liberation Front is a Sámi-led and Sámi-only political front with the goals of uniting the Sámi people and defending the Sámi nation and land against the imperialism, colonialism, and continued capitalist cultural genocide and rape of the Sámi people and our beautiful history. We are an intersectional front for the self-determination of the Sámi nation, the protection of the Sámi identity, and the liberation of the Sámi people. We stand in solidarity with all of the oppressed peoples of the world and our front will not stop fighting against colonialism, imperialism, and capitalism until ALL people of the world are liberated and free.
The Sámi Liberation Front’s Manifesto of Immediate Actions: 1. We demand for the self-determination of the Sámi nation. 2. We demand for the creation of a Sámi-led, independent nation-state named the “Republic of Sápmi”. 3. We demand that the Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, and Russian militaries exit occupied Sápmi. 4. We will work to establish a Sámi-led, national liberation army to protect Sámi people, Sámi communities, the land, the animals, and to assist other oppressed peoples liberation movements when called on. 5. We will establish mutual-aid networks throughout Sápmi to care for the material needs of the Sámi people. 6. We will create cultural organizations throughout Sápmi to bring our people together in love and solidarity. This will include, but not be limited to: youth organizations, Sámi educational organizations, cultural celebration groups, etc. 7. We will reach for the full employment for our people. 8. We will militantly oppose violent capitalism, imperialism, racism, colonialism, fascism, sexism, classism, speciesism, and the destruction of the environment. 9. We will reach for the universal housing of all people in Sápmi. 10. We will achieve education of the highest quality possible for all people in Sápmi. We want education that teaches us our true history, and does not teach colonialist and capitalist propaganda. 11. We want bread and clean water for all people. 12. We will die in pursuit of the liberation of all people and the land. We will support the self-determination of all people. 13. We will stand in solidarity with LGBTQIA+ people, with women, with BIPOC folks, folks with disabilities, with animals and nature, other oppressed religious and ethnic minorities, with working class and poor people; all people of the world. 14. We will give Sámi LGBTQIA+ folks & women a leading voice in our movement. We will fight against reactionary elements within our movement.
For Sámi people: Our movement is just getting started. If you would like to get involved in the Sámi Liberation Front, private message me on Reddit. We will confirm that you are who you say you are, and then invite you into our secure communication platform for recruitment. The next step after that is meeting up with a comrade and vetting.
For non-Sámi & other indigenous peoples: Please, share this around online and in your communities to bring awareness to our struggle. In the future, we will create online donation and mutual-aid networks for supporting our movement. Once our movement has more stability and growth, we will open up a foreign volunteer program for non-Sámi people to help us in our fight for liberation.
For Norwegians, Swedes, Finns, and Russians: Share this around your communities. Join movements in your nations that call for the self-determination of the Sámi nation. Oppose your nations colonialism, imperialism, and occupation of Sápmi.
