Mohawk Blockade: 'It Was the Right Thing to Do'





Land Defenders Statement Below
Please post and distribute widely.
MNN. Mar. 4, 2020. We peacefully took down our month-long train blockade in Kahnawake in support of our family, the wetsuweten. The people’s original fire by the CPR tracks has been moved near the highway 132 approach to the Mercier Bridge to Montreal. It is a people’s movement. Every participant everywhere equally exercised our power and voice to uphold the great peace. Our community is unified. Communities worldwide join us.  Native and non-natives stopped the trains from east to west coast to support the wetsuweten. We continue to stand together.
