Decolonising solidarity: Dilemmas and Directions for Supporters of Indigenous Struggles
by Clare Land.
26th June 2015


Decolonizing Solidarity is a newly released book that provides a  "thorough examination of the problems that can arise when activists from colonial backgrounds seek to be politically supportive of indigenous struggles. Blending key theoretical and practical questions, Clare Land argues that the impulses that drive middle-class settler activists to support indigenous peoples
will not lead to successful alliances and meaningful social change without being transformed
through a process of public political action and critical self-reflection."

The author, Clare Land, is a long-time supporter of indigenous struggles. She works on research at Victoria University’s Moondani Balluk Indigenous Academic Unit, supports social change projects at the Reichstein Foundation, and consults to community organisations on race relations
