Today, 6 water protectors were arrested in Douglas County, Wisconsin, while engaging in peaceful non-violent direct action to stop construction of the Line 3 pipeline project.

When police arrived onsite, they gave a 10 minute warning, but immediately began arrests, targeting anyone holding a camera or cellphone. One water protector was pulled out of a vehicle while attempting to comply with dispersal orders.

Montreal, 29 August 2017 — This morning, August 29, Montreal activist Jaggi Singh was arrested and charged with resisting arrest and taking another person's identity, for having jokingly given his name to police as former Nordiques' player Michel Goulet on August 20. He is being transferred to Quebec City, where he is to appear Wednesday morning at 9 am in Municipal Court.  This arrest came in the context of a far right hate campaign targeting Jaggi, including a petition promoted by the notorious racist group La Meute, demanding his arrest; a campaign that has been taken up by right-leaning political figures and members of the media over the past week.

PLEASE POST & DISTRIBUTE. MNN. 27 August 2017. On December 16, 1773 the occupiers said they were Mohawks so they would not pay British taxes. They dressed in our clothes and threw tea into Boston harbor. The British soldiers could do nothing. King George had sovereignty only over his land and his people.  They sang they were the Sons of Liberty, who was a Mohawk clan mother. The colonial invaders of the Western Hemisphere call themselves Americans to make a false claim to the West. They said the European monarchs had no sovereignty over them. Everybody knows that only the true natural people are sovereign. Everything is “in god we trust” shows church and state are not separated. In their Admiralty courts they usually swear on the bible. Law and religion are in the same courtroom. THESE IMPOSTERS DRESSED UP AS MOHAWKS TO AVOID TAXES! THE NERVE! Today the white race fears a backlash for the horrors they’ve inflicted on people of color. Now their pop…
