Dear Relatives, 
Yesterday a spokesperson for Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe told media that Fort Sill will not be reopened as a concentration camp for our relatives trying to cross the so-called "border."
This news comes less than a week after over 400 people came together in Lawton, OK and blocked the entrance to the military base demanding #NoCampsonStolenLand.
The Indigenous Environmental was proud to work on this action alongside our partners: Dream Action OklahomaUnited We DreamBlack Lives Matter Oklahoma CityDemocratic Socialists of America - Oklahoma CityNative Voice NetworkTsuru for Solidarity, Oklahoma Call for Reproductive JusticeACLU OKWomen’s March OKAmerican Indian Movement Indian TerritoryNACA-Inspired Schools NetworkThe MajorityWorkers DefenseBend the ArcSunflower Community Action,Center for Popular DemocracySunrise MovementThe International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, and others. 
Our voices were heard but we are far from done, this action reminds us that we have the power to change things. We must continue to show up and demand they #ClosetheCamps. 
We are not free until we are all free. 
Keep scrolling for information on how we can keep this momentum going.

I leave you with a quote from Bayard Rustin, see you on the frontlines.
"Our power is in our ability to make things unworkable. The only weapon we have is our bodies, and we must tuck them in places so wheels don't turn."
