1pm – 4pm – Gathering
On October 9th, we are organizing a gathering space for Indigenous community members and allies in Tiohtiá:ke (Montreal) in solidarity with Haudenosaunee and allies of the 1492 Land Back Lane land defending mobilization. This space will amplify connectivity and reciprocity. We will amplify the messages of defenders protecting their lands and waterways for the future of their communities, as well as celebrate the strength of Indigenous community members in Tiohtiá:ke. There will be food, music, singing and dancing! **Indigenous community members are invited in the inner circle of the gathering, and allies are welcomed to stay in the outside circle.**
4pm onwards – Demonstration
Bring signs, banners and things to make noise
Land Defenders of 1492 Land Back Lane located near Six Nations are protecting an area of land threatened by housing developers. Earlier in August, the police served an injunction to the Land Defenders peacefully asserting their sovereignty while saying “no” to the ongoing development threatening the well-being of Haudenosaunee territory. The police protects the capitalist interest of housing developers. While serving this injunction, police shot rubber bullets into the crowd and arrested several people at and around the site.
The Ontario Provincial Police since then arrested Indigenous journalists trying to keep this struggle visible and over 20 allies.
What’s happening at Land Back Lane is a part of broader struggles against the ongoing encroachment of a colonial-capitalist system on Indigenous land. We are also witnessing a continent-wide uprising led by Black people, many whom are descendents of the African diaspora stolen from their Indigenous homelands and brought to Turtle Island by White Europeans.
The state and corporate entities mobilize the police to brutally suppress and quell Indigenous-led and Black-led uprisings. Resistance and organizing by Indigenous and Black peoples threatens the foundations of KKKanada, the white supremacist institutions that shape it, and the foundations of genocide and slavery that so-called Canada was built upon. The police continue to terrorize, invade, murder and target Indigenous, Black and racialized people everyday. The police must be abolished!
Come and join this initiative to show solidarity with the Defenders of 1492 Land Back Lane and all those resisting on the frontlines of the white-supremacist colonial state!
OPP OUT OF SIX NATIONS!
RCMP OFF WET’SUWET’EN TERRITORY!
