Niagara community affirms Indigenous sovereignty as Trudeau speaks at Brock University

As part of a series of public actions opposed to the Canadian invasion of sovereign Indigenous nations and in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en Nation, Niagara regional community members, including members of Christian Peacemaker Teams, and the Six Nations Men’s Fire blocked an entrance to Brock University where the Prime Minister was speaking. The recent RCMP raids against the Unist’ot’en Camp, enforcing a court injunction to clear the way for construction of the Coastal Gaslink pipeline, have drawn outrage and condemnation across Turtle Island. 

Indigenous Peoples Solidarity: Justice for Grassy Narrows

In the 1960’s the Dryden pulp and paper mill dumped ten tons of mercury into the Wabigoon River system upstream from Grassy Narrows.  This contaminated the walleye fish that the people ate, resulting in slurred speech, tremors, impaired hearing, tunnel vision and lost muscle coordination— all signs of Minamata disease.  It also destroyed their fishing tourism industry.
