"Today we stood strong against this Nazi oil-bought police force. They set off LRAD on us, hit us, maced us, arrested our grandmothers, and uncles, shot at our horse relatives, and set off concussion grenades, and rubber bullets into the unarmed crowd. They desecrated sacred land and destroyed our homes on tribal land. We had snipers scoping me out with an assault rifle pointed at me and my relative. Our hearts were wounded but we will regroup and keep our minds in high vibrations because it is not over.
We will stop the pipeline." Cepoalli, shared on Censored News, as it happened, Oct. 27, 2016

QUEBEC SUPERIOR COURT DECISION –  JUDGE GREGORY MOORE. OCT. 27, 2022. THE ORDER :

MNN. Oct. 28, 20220.We are happy to announce yesterday’s successful court decision for the Mohawk Mothers in #500-17-120-468-221 kahentinetha et al v. Societe quebecois des infrastructure et al. This landmark decision halts all excavation work at the Royal Victoria Hospital site. This is the first injunction granted to self-represented indigenous people based on our way of representing ourselves, using our great peace to achieve concensus.  The judge decided that the two parties shall spend 4 months together to do this but will convene out of court to determine together the best archaeological practices to respect the land and remains.
