(en) Canada, Guelph: Solidarity Blockade with Six Nations

Date Thu, 11 Sep 2008 14:48:07 +0300

During the morning rush hour on September 2nd, a group of anarchists blocked the
southbound lanes of the Hanlon (Highway 6) at Paisley using flaming tires and
branches. A banner was dropped from the trainbridge over the highway reading:
"Repression in Six Nations, Repression at home, Solidarity." As we left, a
copper wire and burning tires were set on the train tracks. ---- We acted in
solidarity with the three native comrades from Six Nations arrested on Monday
morning, September 1st at the occupation of Kingspan development site in
Brantford. ---- We chose to place the blockades during morning rush hour to
achieve maximum economic disruption.

We targeted the shipment of goods and the flow of commuters to cause damage to
local industry, such as Linamar Corp, the largest employer in Guelph. The CEO of
Linamar sits on the advisory board of the (North American) Security and
Prosperity Partnership which is creating intensified and harmonized border
security, police control and surveillance; increasing the flow of goods; and is
crucial for the implementation of the most devastating resource extraction
projects such as the tar sands and uranium mining. These projects, like all
capitalist projects, are further diminishing the possibility of autonomous and
free lives for anyone.

The police repression at Six Nations cannot be separated from the repression in
Guelph, Tyendinaga, and everywhere. Our streets are filled with cops who beat
and arrest people everyday. They use profiling, surveillance and criminilization
to further their control and neutralize social movements. We engage in daily
conflict with this system of wage slavery and rent, a system that excludes all
but the rich. Our struggle for a life outside this prison-world is intrinsically
linked with the indigenous struggle for autonomy.

As long as our comrades are being burdened with prison and courts, as long as
land is being stolen for capitalist projects, our struggle ferociously continues

Protect the Land!
Protect the Land Defenders!
Free all Prisoners!
