Center for Biological Diversity Statement on Shooting of Jacob Johns

Statement from Kierán Suckling, Executive Director, Center for Biological Diversity

Statement from Kierán Suckling, executive director, Center for Biological Diversity:

I. Introduction

I am horrified and devastated by the shooting this week in New Mexico of Jacob Johns, an Indigenous climate and justice activist, by a MAGA hat-wearing bigot. The Center for Biological Diversity stands by the brave actions of Johns and with the Indigenous Peoples of New Mexico and North America resisting the resurrection of a monument to violent conquistador Juan de Oñate.

II. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The Center’s work to end the climate and extinction crises is rooted in resistance to colonial extractivism. We honor the tireless organizing of Indigenous activists resisting all forms of settler racism, including The Red Nation, the Three Sisters Collective, the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women, and NDN Collective, who led this week’s peaceful gathering in Tewa Territory, Española, New Mexico. We commit to fighting for justice, because injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

III. Conclusion

We are determined to continue our efforts in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to achieve a just and sustainable world for all.
