Solutions for ending colonial power
Is colonialism causing you problems? Does some anonymous official decide how your land should be used? Is some stranger ruling over your native lands and fishing waters? Are you forced to pay unreasonable maintenance and use fees to the government for using your own land?
Don’t worry! We have a solution to your troubles: a moratorium! By declaring a moratorium, you can finally take control. Nobody knows your native lands like you and your community do. So why not decide for yourself how to use and manage it? A moratorium will ensure that not only your community but also your land will get fair treatment.
The Moratorium Office is a decolonialist self-determination service. We will help you take control of your land and advise you to the best of our abilities on how to resist colonialist oppression. We offer an easy-to-use moratorium kit and more information at moratoriadoaimmahat.org.
What is a moratorium?
A moratorium means the suspension of a law, activity or process within a certain area. A moratorium has rules that must be observed while it is in force. A moratorium is founded on an account of the injustice of the current situation and on the demands and outcome of the moratorium. In the present context its purpose is to help local communities to live in accordance with their traditions to protect the balance of nature.
