Today’s news, fermented:
Hi friends. I’ll keep this one short—I’m already so late in your inbox!
This holiday, as discussed yesterday, should not exist. There are a bunch of ways you can observe this holiday to acknowledge that, from fasting to supporting Indigenous food sovereignty and protecting Black farmers’ land.
You can livestream the 51st annual National Day of Mourning ceremony taking place in Plymouth, MA, and read up on the national #LandBack movement to restore sovereignty to Indigenous people across Turtle Island. If you’re looking for more guided learning, attend the Rethinking Thanksgiving film screening and discussion.
And, by nature of being a holiday, this ridiculous (inexcusable, genocidal) nation grants many workers the day off. Of course, this is not true for everyone. But if you have been working and want to take this day as one of rest, that is okay too. Accountability for and work towards transformative change is a long-term process.
Because other themes of today are eating and being away from/in your home, here’s a gem from my home place.
Back next week from the superb Latifah Azlan.
