1_O7vMBFagiZRTfN7uby6EqwAuf der Webseite von Amnesty International hat Adrienne Keene von Standing Rock Solidarity 10 Praxis-Tipps für solidarisches Handeln gegeben. Die Empfehlungen richten sich an Verbündete, die auf verantwortungsvolle Weise marginalisierte Communities unterstützen wollen und selbst keinen Minderheiten-Status haben.

  1. Center the leadership, stories and voices of the affected community.
  2. Recognize and be mindful of the cultural context and space that you occupy.
  3. Don’t co-opt religious/cultural symbols and garments regardless of your intentions.
  4. Reach out to local muslim and arab community organizers to find out how you can show up as an ally.
  5. Be aware of how much space you are taking up and more importantly when to step back.
  6. Never photograph anyone without their expressed permission and consent.
  7. When invited to a cultural, community or religious space always show up with an offering. Never show up empty handed.
  8. Match your intention with your impact.
  9. Allyship is a dynamic process.
  10. Saviors are not needed, solidarity is.
