————————————-

This event takes place within the traditional territory of the Lkwungen peoples, today represented by the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. The Retail Action Network organizes within Lkwungen, W̱SÁNEĆ, and T’Sou-ke Territory.​ The displacement of Indigenous people from here and around the world, through colonialism, has historically been the backbone of capitalism and a vehicle for the extraction of resources. Working class settlers through history, displaced from their own communities, have been pawns to enforce the violence of colonialism. This process continues today. Colonialism has important and real implications for why and how we organize workers. Centuries of resistance to capitalism and colonialism have shaped today’s labour movement; we continue to learn and take direction from Indigenous led anti-colonial movements. We extend our appreciation to the Lkwungen, W̱SÁNEĆ, and T’Sou-ke peoples for the opportunity to live, work, organize, and celebrate together on this territory.
