On February 28, on the second anniversary of the start of the Six Nations land reclamation at Caledonia, McMaster University was the site of the important event, “The Land Reclamation at Caledonia/Kanonhstaton: Two Years Later...” The day-long event brought together many of the major figures of this historic and ongoing struggle. The following is a brief summary of the first part of the event.
On February 13, 2008 the “No Olympics on Stolen Native Land” speaking tour passed through Hamilton. The speakers included Kanahus Pellkey, a Secwepemc and Ktnuxa Warrior and member of the Native Youth Movement. They spoke while taking care of their very young children who occasionally grabbed the attention of the 50+ crowd with their laughter and curiosity. Despite the title of the talk, the 2010 Olympics were only briefly mentioned as the speakers spoke freely on a wide range topics. The following is a summary of some of the key themes that we picked up on.
Info Demo Thurs. March 20th, 11am-2pm, Gore Park (Main and James), Hamilton
Please join us, Hamilton Solidarity with Six Nations, on Thursday March 20th from 11am-2pm in Gore park (downtown Hamilton at King and James). We will be holding an information demonstration to hand out information to the public regarding the Six Nations land reclamation and negotiations. We are continuing to demand there be a moratorium on all development on lands in Canada under dispute and that all levels of government negotiate in good faith based on respect.
We will be inviting the media to come at 12:30pm when we hope to deliver a 1000-signature petition to a local MP which demands the federal government halt all development on lands in dispute.
Please join us and/or stop by!

Join noted Canadian journalist and author Linda McQuaig as she speaks on Canada's changing role on the world stage. Our foreign policy, she argues, is increasingly becoming subordinated to that of the United States. What
role is the media playing in Canada's war in Afghanistan? Linda takes questions and describes the findings from her new book "Holding the Bully's Coat: Canada and the U.S. Empire."
"Attempting to please our powerful neighbour, Ottawa has abandoned Canada's
traditional peacekeeping role in favour of a more combative stance, battling
insurgents in Afghanistan as a junior partner in George W. Bush's "war on
terror." This new, more aggressive role for Canada -- championed by our
corporate, military and media elite -- is sharply at odds with the sense of
identity held by most Canadians."
