We are calling together any and all groups, organizations, people, or entities that have a vested interest in stopping all forms of racist resource colonialism and their capitalist colonial industries and affiliates, including but not limited to: oil pipelines, mines, human trafficking, and the commerce that makes these things possible.
While we all want to protect water, land, and air, we must also work to protect our intricate social webs, utilize good security culture, & promote solidarity between the same or similar struggles. We want to have productive conversations around community codes of conduct and social support networks that maintain SOLIDARITY with a diversity of different groups that employ a diversity of different tactics & methods to accomplish the same means.
*We want to build communities & community organizing/ "activism" based on a foundation of consent, trust, solidarity, & revolutionary principles.
*Consequently together we want to make unacceptable Bad-jacketing, snitching, unpredictable emotional erruptions on social media, throwing people under the bus, disrespect of persynal privacy, organizational domination. Our collective enemies will only use these things to dismantle and destroy our movements for positive change.
*We are stronger together than we are divided, but also want to collectively decide together that we do NOT all have to be doing the SAME things to be supportive of each other, & we embrace organizational harmony in this way.
*We also hope to decide together to work to solve conflict & issues within & between our various groups on our own collective terms exclusive to law enforcement. Additionally, it is important that we are comfortable in uncomfortable settings in the sense that we must learn from eachother and grow together.
*We wish to add to the new version of the St. Paul Principles that people be willing to accept as well as acknowledge white privilege, institutional racism, indigenous genocide and relocation, assimilation, removal, and that we are ALL operating on ancestral indigenous lands of the Ojibwe and Dakota, as well as how all of these factors inform everyone's actions, opportunities, and decisions, and to support a community restorative justice framework that takes all of this into account.
We hope to see a diversity of groups and individuals there, and invite all who hold stake in any of these things to attend.
unedited St. Paul Principles:
1. Our solidarity will be based on respect for a diversity of tactics and the
plans of other groups.
2. The actions and tactics used will be organized to maintain a separation of
time or space.
3. Any debates or criticisms will stay internal to the movement, avoiding any
public or media denunciations of fellow activists and events.

infiltration, disruption and violence. we agree not to assist law enforcement
actions against activists and others.
