On March 3rd, 2006, Rotin'oshon'ni Six Nations people set up camp on the
Haldimand Tract, located at the entrance to Douglas Creek Estates, a
71-lot subdivision under construction by Henco Industries Ltd. on Six
Nations territory (near Caledonia, Ontario).
Excerpt From "Statement by the Clan Mothers":

"WHEREAS the Canadian Government knows this land is subject to litigation
resulting from fraudulent and dubious practices. Canada has allowed
permits to be given out to Indian land it does not have title to. Gen.
Haldimand confirmed that Britain would affirm the right of the Six Nations
to a tract of land six miles deep on either side of the Grand River
running from its mouth to its source. None of this land was ever legally
surrendered. Most of this land was lost through a variety of frauds
perpetrated or condoned by the colonial governments. Canada knows it
violated the law when it deposed the traditional government in 1924.
Canada is presently in negotiations to rectify these past injustices.
Offering non-native people title to this land is a deliberate attempt to
mislead and act in bad faith. Henco Industries is part of "sharp" practice
on the part of the Crown in Right of Ontario and/or Canada which knows
that it cannot grant legal title to these lands."

Full Statement:


"Six Nations" refers to the six nations that are part of the Haudenosaunee
Confederacy: Gayogoho:no (Cayuga), Kanien'keha:ka (Mohawk), Onyota'a:ka
(Oneida), Onoda'gega (Onondaga), Onodowahgah (Seneca), and Ska-ru-ren
(Tuscarora). The traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy
crosses the colonial US/Canada border, including parts of "Ontario",
"Quebec", "Pennsylvania", "Ohio", "New York", and "New Hampshire".



The Anarchist Discussion Group meets every second Sunday afternoon. We are
local Ottawa activists and community members who share an
anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist viewpoint. We are involved in
diverse struggles and believe in the importance of maintaining a link
between theory and practice. Discussions are based on readings,
presentations or short films. If there are readings, they are optional and
will be summarized at the beginning of the discussion.
