Description Saturday June 19th
Solidarity with the Peoples of Kanehsatake!
A Public Assembly & Organizing Meeting

The Peoples of Kanehsatake have successfully resisted
a federally sponsored, politically motivated,
militarized invasion of their community. They put
their lives and freedom on the line in order to stop
the formation of a police state headed by Grand Chief
James Gabriel whose leadership itself was imposed by a
a federal court injunction. Twenty-four people now
face charges of participation in a riot and forcible
confinement of police officers. The threat of prison
has not deterred their resistance. The struggle for
self-determination in Kanehsatake and other Mohawk
communities is far from over, and these communities
are asking for your support. Come hear the truth about
Canada's ongoing attempts to colonize the Mohawk
Nation, with guest speakers: Clifton Nicholas from
Kanehsatake; Shawn Brant from Tyendinega, and
Kahn-Tineta Horn from Kahnawake. We will be organizing
an action network capable of reponding to urgent
requests for assistance in the future.
