Mohawk Nation News: 'No' to merchants of death

Special Report

Mohawk Nation News
August 1, 2007

Ardoch and Shabot Algonquins [42 miles north of Kingston
Ontario Canada] continue to block Frontenac Ventures Corp. and MREL [Mining
Resources Engineering Limited]. Frontenac wants to start uranium mining and
MREL is blowing up bombs on unceded Algonquin Indigenous territory.

We already know MREL keeps company with the military industry's "defense"
and law enforcement agencies. MREL is a member of "IABTI" [International
Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators) which has 85 "exclusive
club" members. MREL is one of the 33 "explosive experts". They're getting
together for the big "blow up" at the FPED (Force Protection Equipment Demonstration)
in Virginia U.S. this month.

Hundreds of companies are demonstrating their "war toys". It's sponsored in
part by TSWG (Technical Support Working Group). MREL is also part of this
"gang of blow offs" who are going to explode their creations for an action hungry
crowd of 10,000 pyromaniacs! Fire works were invented for fun and amusement.
The Europeans turned them into weapons of war.

MREL is on CADSI's [Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries]
list of hundreds of organizations known as the Canadian "merchants of death".
MREL is on a short list of 6 specially licensed “bomb makers” and “bomb-blower
-uppers” in Canada.

"" describes itself as "military purchasing news for
defense procurement managers and contractors". Their articles swoon over
bombs, fighter planes, helicopters, ships, robots, bombs and more bombs,
"boooomm!" "crash!" "wham!" "bam!" "a-ahhh!" "k#%^!!!" e-e-eek!" "ow"!
"ala kazam!"

Another bomb maker has appeared on the horizon. "Canada Explosives" revealed
in an article on "Allen-Vanguard" of Ottawa that, "the U.S. has led the way in robots
for explosives and ‘ordnance disposal’, [Do the robots dance the tango too?]
That's ‘bang’ talk for killing people. [Once of these days they’ll boomerang and get
it right back. Who are the real terrorists anyway?] Allen-Vanguard was selected for
the Canadian Forces 5-year "mini-rov" [robot] program. The order is worth CDN$3.7
million. Another is worth CDN$1.6 million." It gets cheaper when you order more!

Canada gave Allen-Vanguard and MREL permission to give everybody a "blow up
job", you know, kill people. [I could go on but I digress.] It doesn't come cheap.
Allen-Vanguard is also a member of both IABTI and CADSI. Its facilities are at
Stoney Creek, Ontario. They are building a new research and development facility
in Cork County, Ireland.

In the past Canada was a conciliator. It built its reputation on peace. Peacemaking
requires courage, skill and tact. Too bad Canada’s position as a ‘peacemaker’ from
the time of Lester B Pearson has been shattered by the new macho image of
Canadians gleefully slaughtering people. [in Somalia, in Afghanistan, are we next?]
Does it really make it better that Canada is not as bad as the U.S.? How can anyone
tell the difference between those two war monsters?

Allen-Vanguard devices are used by the military in more than 120 countries on both
sides of the issue. [Gotta make money anyway they can!] They offer counter-terrorist
equipment systems for defeating “conventional and unconventional terrorist devices."
What's conventional about killing people? Whose convention? MREL provides them
with high speed cameras to take pictures of their war devastation.

Their customers include the RCMP, FBI, U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Army and Marine
Corps, fire and police departments in Canada and U.S., the Center for Disease Control
in Atlanta, Georgia, the Austrian National Response Team, the Swedish Response Team,
Denmark Special Security Forces, Irish Special Security Forces, the South Korean Army,
the Australian Army and the Israeli police." What are all these guys doing buying weapons
if their mission is supposed to be peace?

A strange connection has been made. A very interesting obituary recently appeared in the
Ontario Genealogical Society web site. It was a long tribute to Ontario Provincial Police
OPP murderer "Kenneth Deane". He killed unarmed Indigenous activist Dudley George
during a protest on unceded Chippewa territory at Ipperwash Park.

Deane belonged to "the exclusive ranks of the OPP's "Tactical Rescue Unit" [TRU], the
special squad deployed in hostage-taking situations". Were the Indigenous at Ipperwash
hostages? Are the Algonquin OPP at the Sharbot Lake protest members of TRU? Are they
marksmen that can pick off somebody they don’t want around there?

Deane was "leading a highly trained, four-man team of marksmen" when he shot and
killed Dudley George. Deane was one of the best marksmen in the business. He was t
rained to say that he "saw a weapon" even though other witnesses did not.

Deane was convicted of "criminal negligence" causing death and never went to jail. He
also never made it to the Ipperwash Inquiry.

Deane was in Oka [Quebec] with the OPP during the Mohawk Crisis in 1990. The Mohawks
at Kanehsatake were defending their territory. Snipers are assassins. He was brought in
as a specialist. He was at Grassy Narrows when another OPP was shot dead in 1991.

Deane was forced to resign in 1997. He went to work for security at a Ontario Hydro nuclear
station. His last job was Canadian sales manager for-Allen Vanguard Response Systems.
[When five white vans show up out of the blue at various “disturbances”, these are private
militias otherwise known as mercenaries]. “Security” is part of the Allen-Vanguard’s
business. Try to tell us now that Indigenous people are not targeted!

Now hold on a minute here. This large company that deals with dangerous stuff like bombs,
toxic chemicals, radiation and classified military contracts hires a guy who was convicted
of criminal negligence causing death in a high profile case! This is how a police state
operates, wouldn’t you say?

Deane was willing to pull the trigger on an Indigenous. Others would not do that. He was
a valuable commodity for those pushing this totalitarian agenda. They need guys who will
shoot Indigenous without question or remorse. We have to be very wary of police agencies
that produce guys like this on a massive scale. They are trained to become an automaton,
especially when their crosshairs are on an Indigenous. They are worse than street gangs
because they are trained, armed, funded and protected by the establishment.

When Deane killed Dudley George he got his “badge” and was promoted to the private
$ector! Kenneth Deane died in a car accident in February 2006 on Highway 401 near
Prescott during a snow squall. He was getting close to testifying at the Ipperwash Inquiry.
[With so much skullduggery, how can we be sure this guy is really dead? Maybe he’s been
sent overseas to shoot Indigenous people somewhere else!] Two other OPP officers
involved in the Dudley George shooting died in car accidents. Sgt. Margaret Eve died in
a car crash on Hwy. 401 near Chatham, Ontario, and Inspector Dale Linton died in a single
car accident near Smiths Falls, near Perth. This is where the Algonquins and their
supporters are fighting against a proposed uranium mine and explosives business
on Algonquin land.

Isn’t this suspicious! From “Jonestown” to “Exterminator”! We have just learned that Indian
Affairs Minister, Jim “Jonestown” Prentice is becoming the new Minister of National
Defense. Does his military experience for the job include turning Indian Affairs into a
“War Department”? He also allowed the “war mongers” to use us as “guinea pigs”
to try out their lethal weaponry and to test their killing machines on our lands. He is
joining the “big boys” who kill people rather than save humanity. He should turn DND
funds into fixing Canada’s crumbling infra structure. If not, Canada we will see more
“Minneapolis” type national disasters.

The Algonquins continue to block the Robertson mine site with no resolution in sight.
Support and donations are needed. [Contact: Chief Paula Sherman 705-696-2188;
