Six Nation indigenous resistance in Caledonia info share, NYC, Mon, 7pm!

NYMAA Global Networks Work Group | The Six Nations Confederation (A.K.A. the Iroquois or Haudenosaunee Confederacy) has re-occupied an area of their land in Caledonia, Ontario, in order to halt the construction of housing developments. On April 20, 2006, at 4:30 AM, the Ontario Provincial Police attacked the Six Nations protesters with batons, tear gas cannons, and Tasers. They arrested 16 people but were repelled by the protesters. Since then, the Six Nations protesters have maintained a roadblock at the site but are under constant threat from police and settler residents of the town of Caledonia. The various internal forces within the Haudenosaunee Confederation solidly support the barricade and the land occupation. more...  1 Comments

Video: Vigil of Defiance at Senator Clinton and Schumers office

onto | About 75 concerned people protested the offices of Senators Clinton and Schumer on Wednesday over the pending immigration bills in the legislature. Organized by the Immigrant Communities in Action coalition and the American Friends Service Committee, this action was also a vigil for 4000+ who have died crossing the border in the last 10 years since Operation Gatekeeper. The many amendments to the Senate bill (like the Hagel-Martinez bill) would place 370 miles of more wall at the border, as well as increase the amount of border patrol and detention centers, ensuring more deaths, violence, and indefinite detention for migrants. For updates on the movement against borders, see  http://deletetheborder.org. more...  0 Comments

Gerry Adams and Co. Turn Backs on The Hunger Strikers

FTP | "The bogus claim made by the Provos that the Stormont Agreement of 1998 was a logical succession to the hunger-strike deaths of 1981 was equivalent to the Free Staters' assertion that the 26-County State arose out of the Easter Rising of 1916," said the President of Republican Sinn Féin, at a 25th anniversary commemoration of the death of hunger-striker Raymond McCreesh at his grave in Camloch, south Armagh on Sunday, May 21. more...  1 Comments
