There is a lot less daily news about the standoff in Caledonia than there was a week or two ago – and understandably so. If the situation changes i will be sure to post news, but otherwise i will probably stop posting these daily media roundups. I encourage everyone interested to check out the constantly updated Settles In Support of Indigenous Sovereignty website’s Six Nations Solidarity page.
