"In our dreams we have seen another world…where there was no need for armies; where peace, justice, and liberty were so common they were talked about as things like air and water." 
-Subcomandante Marcos.
On Earth Day we honor and remember peoples of First Nations and indigenous communities around the world whose relationship with the land is a daily struggle for justice and equality. #earthday
