Dispute Over the Past and Internal Colonialism

Exploitation, discrimination, racism, opression, and internal colonialism that the indigenous peoples suffer are in part a product of history, but also of the actions of the modern State, and the forces of capital against them. They are not merely issues of the past but of the present. This is why it is not enough to call for national unity, denounce the colonial atrocities, or offer apologies. It is time to put an end to internal colonial relations.
