Day of Action in Support of Six Nations!

i have been asked to relay the following information:

Under the direction of the Clan Mothers at the Six Nations Territory, a series of actions are being organized in solidarity with the Six Nations, and in support of their demands for an immediate cessation of all construction by Henco Industries on Six Nations territory and for resolution to the current standoff to be conducted on a nation-to-nation basis. Jamie Jamieson from the Six Nations community states "I hope for a resolution. It would involve having the whole issue fo title and jurisdiction resolved, and it would mean for the federal government to take accountability and responsibility for their actions in regard to this land."

The racist colonial legacy of Canada continues to devastate the lands and lives of indigenous peoples and standing in support of the Six Nations community is a tangible way to stop the settler government’s interventions in the continued illegal expropriation and exploitation of indigenous land and territories.

To increase the pressure on April 12, the Six Nations Clan mothers are also requesting that people contact Michaelle Jean and Michael Bryant to express support for their demands and to call for a resolution to the standoff through political means, rather than policing.
