Since February 28 members of the Six Nations have been carrying out a land reclamation by occupying a housing development near Caledonia. The development is on land granted to the Six Nations in 1784. The Six Nations reserve today occupies only 5 per cent of the original land grant.
In response to an April 20 raid by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), which was repelled, Native people in Quebec, B.C. and other parts of Ontario organized solidarity protests.
On May 22, an attack by rightists was defeated by native defenders. As a goodwill gesture the barricade on Highway 6 has been lifted. The occupation continues.
Native people are providing an example of resistance to all working people in our common struggle to defend our interests against Canada’s capitalist rulers, their governments, courts and cops.
Join a discussion on the stakes for working people.
Speakers: Jacqueline House, one of the designated spokespeople for the site and a member of the Six Nations; Joe Young, Militant reporter
