Solidarity with Ab

On Sunday the 7th of October our brother Abraham Hernandez was detained and arrested in Millard County, Utah where he was kept on an Immigration hold. From there he was transferred to a detention center in Logan, Utah where he waits to see a judge that may grant him release. 

Abraham is not only our loving brother but also a compassionate, valued and vital part of our community . As a water protector and land defender, he is constantly looking for ways to lend his many skills to the local community to help build the autonomous world we all want to see. His dedication to environmental justice and indigenous sovereignty has also made him a crucial asset to the support and resistance in the Black Mesa/Big Mountain community . From sheep herding, hauling water/wood, to fire keeping and fixing hogans, Abraham is known by fellow organizers to always be there and always be ready to support.

Abraham is not new to this work. He has spent the last few years of his life in solidarity with many indigenous communities in turtle island, including the Standing Rock struggle. Engaging in regional organizing in the southwest is especially important to Abraham as it is the place where he resides. This work is not just an action for our brother, it is a life long praxis.

Abraham was arrested while on his way back to camp  where he frequently spends months at time dedicated to land defense and to the protection of sacred water and indigenous ways of life. We ask that you may support our community effort to gather resources to guarantee the safety and intentional protection of Abraham.  Please donate to this fundraiser and share with your networks so that our family may continue to navigate this violent immigration system and Abraham may be able to return to the people that love him and need him.
