Standoff between Ontario Tyendinaga Mohawks and Canadian Government Escalates

**URGENT** Tyendinaga 9:30 am Monday morning, April 28th

We have just been informed by the Tyendinaga Mohawk community
spokespeople that SWAT teams are amassing right now on the Deseronto
and Slash Roads, bordering the Tyendinaga quarry reclamation site.
Community spokesperson Jason Maracle has just been told by the OPP to
pull people out of the quarry because they are going in.


please call the premier's office immediately and urge them to:

-Honour Mohawk land, call off the OPP: Do not risk people's lives
for a gravel pit the government has already acknowledged is on Mohawk
land!

-Release all First Nations political prisoners! If they don't well will be seeing plenty more in the next few weeks here in Canada!!
