From their invitation:
“This Treaty obligates us to conduct a nonviolent direct action to protect the sacred system of life each solstice and equinox. Everyone is invited to participate. And, while Mother Earth is encouraging us to take a time out now, it is important to connect with each other to protect and defend all we hold dear.

We will be sharing news at 11:40 about the victories we’ve had in this year, which show yet again that a combination of perseverance, hard work, and keeping the faith does actually overcome.
The Indigenous Women of the Americas – Defenders of Mother Earth Treaty Compact 2015 was signed on September 27, 2015 the day of the fourth Blood Moon of the year, the Harvest full moon and a total lunar eclipse.
“As Indigenous Women of the Americas, we understand the responsibilities toward the sacred system of life given to us by the Creator to protect the territorial integrity of Mother Earth and Indigenous Peoples. These responsibilities include the safety, health and well-being of our children and those yet to come, as well as the children of all of our non‐human relatives, the seeds of the plants and those unseen.” You can read the whole treaty here.
