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! Read More …

Solidarity Rail Sabotage in Guelph

Shut Down Canada! All Eyes on Wet’suwet’en!
Solidarity Rail Sabotage in Guelph Ontario.
February 9th, 2020

Tonight we sabotaged CN Rail at 3 different locations in Guelph, Ontario.

As settlers, we took this action in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en people who are currently facing violent attacks by the RCMP and are holding down the front line to protect the health of their territory. CN rail is a culprit in supporting this colonial and destructive project as partners in transporting the infrastructure that will build this pipeline and the man camps, which create an increase in violence against indigenous women on the territory.

Guelph: Banner Drop in Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en

The Wet’suwet’en Nation is currently engaged in an ongoing struggle to protect their ancestral and unceded, sovereign territory from the Coastal Gaslink pipeline project (CGL) and the Canadian State. Just over one year after a militarized RCMP raid the Wet’suwet’en fear another raid- knowing that the RCMP will go to extreme measures, including killing, to protect industries interests. Recently, the RCMP have come under additional scrutiny for the “lethal overwatch” of Indigenous land defenders during the January 2019 raid. In an era of so-called “reconciliation” the Canadian state continues to occupy unceded Indigenous lands while violating and dismissing Indigenous sovereignty. This is not an attempt to only call out the blatant disregard for the lives of indigenous land defenders but to demand that the RCMP leave Wet’suwet’en territory altogether. #respectwetsuwetenlaw Read More …

Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en Action Targeting RBC Guelph

The Wet’suwet’en Nation is currently engaged in an ongoing struggle to protect their unceded, sovereign territory from the Coastal Gaslink pipeline project (CGL) and the Canadian State. Although the hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en Nation have not consented to the CGL pipeline, the BC Supreme Court has violated Wet’suwet’en Law by allowing the RCMP to invade Wet’suwet’en sovereign territory to pave the way for Coastal Gaslink’s construction of a natural gas pipeline. In an era of so-called “reconciliation” the Canadian state continues to occupy unceded Indigenous lands while violating and dismissing Indigenous sovereignty. Read More …

Autonomously and with Conviction: A Métis Refusal of State-Led Reconciliation

Transcription of a talk given on October 12, 2018 at the 13th annual Decolonizing Thanksgiving Dinner in Guelph, Ontario on traditional Neutral/Chonnonton, Anishinabec, and Haudenosaunee territory. This text is also available as an imposed printable brochure so you can share it and discuss.

I’d just like to preface this by saying that some of the things I’m going to say tonight are going to be challenging, maybe even upsetting, for some people. If it is, I apologize. But I was also offered tobacco to speak tonight and so I have to speak my truth.

I was asked to come and speak to you tonight about reconciliation.
I think it is important for me to begin this talk by telling you that I have no interest in reconciliation (at this time) and that I think the concept is a state-led smoke screen used to advance a more sophisticated policy of assimilation. I want to talk a little bit about reconciliation, decolonization, the difference between the two, and the role of the state in all of this. Read More …

Guelph: Confront Canada Day! Rally

On that day of nationalist garbage, so-called Canada Day, around 20 anti-capitalist supporters of indigenous sovereignty, led by radical members of the indigenous community, gathered in the city’s St. George’s Square to confront colonialism and reject the spectacle of the day. While the event was scheduled some time in advance, speakers centered and echoed the call from Six Nations for Justice for Jon Styers–along side Colten Boushie, Tina Fontaine, and countless other victims of the colonial state’s violence.

Guelph: Free Cedar Mural

Many of us have never met Cedar but all of us have felt the impact of their tireless work to promote anti-authoritarian values. Stay strong Cedar Rabbit, we carry you in our hearts.
