This exhibition is very timely considering all the illegal infractions taking place by our government and courts. The violations of Indiginous laws and the use of extreme force on peaceful land & water defenders by police is unacceptable. I believe the silver lining on this social cloud is that many settler allies are experiencing what Indiginous people have encountered for over 150 years. As resources dwindle the state will intensify its defence of corporate extraction until there is a major groundswell of resistance from citizens who recognize that colonialism & ecocide is stealing our future.
