Please post & distribute.
MNN. Apr. 24, 2018. The Assembly of First Nations, the national, provincial and territorial INDIAN organizations and band and tribal councils are terrorist organizations. They use terror as a weapon to help eradicate all native people. Violence and threats are calculated to attain political and economic goals through coercion and fear.  AFN and the others belong on the list of agents of repression who carry out the thuggery for the corporate cartel of the invaders.
