We Will Respond
The OPP have told folks at Tyendinaga they will enforce the injunction, just not when. When they do, people in Hamilton will respond within 12 hours. We are asking people to be ready to respond with us. When you hear about an OPP raid on Tyendinaga, we encourage you to check https://north-shore.info/ for where to join us. Wear warm, layered clothing, bring water and snacks, and be prepared to act in solidarity.
We encourage other cities to prepare their own response. We’ve included an editable graphic with this post for you to use, if desired. Let the state know that just like raiding the Wet’suwet’en has, violence against the Mohawks of Tyendinaga will elicit even more issues for the economy. We are not giving up, and the only way out of this is to be accountable: RCMP out! CGL out!
The Mohawks of Tyendinaga and their supporters have been blockading a CN mainline through their territory for nearly two weeks now in support of the Wet’suwet’en. Two weeks ago, militarized RCMP invaded Wet’suwet’en territory to arrest land defenders, who were reclaiming their territories and impeding the Coastal Gas Link project. While the invasion of Wet’suwet’en lands seems particularly atrocious because their lands are unceded and unsurrendered, the truth is that Canada has long since voided its treaty with every Indigenous Nation. It is time to stand up and shut things down; for Tyendinaga, for the Wet’suwet’en, for the Sipekne’katik and for every Indigenous Nation fighting to protect the land & water.
