RETENTISSANTE

ROTISKENRAKETE

MNN .?KAHEHTI:IO?, one of the young men jailed by the OPP yesterday morning for being on the Six Nation Nations land, remains in jail. Following the precedent set by the United States at Guantanamo Bay, Kahehti:io is being kept in jail for refusing to give any other name except the one he has. It means ?he plants a good garden?. They are asking him for a colonial name does not have. He refuses to be fingerprinted and photographed. He is a young skinny kid who was beaten up by 4 OPP officers. He asked for me, Kahentinetha, to come and take him into my care. I would have to assure them he will be a good boy, without mentioning that I think he has been a wonderful boy so far!

AKWESASNE ROTISKENRAKETE, the men of the longhouse are handing out information on the International Bridge between New York State and Cornwall. They have a duty to protect the land which is held by the Women Title Holders. The decision of the people was for these men to express our outrage at what is happening to our brothers and sisters at Six Nations.

COLONIAL WAR RE-ENACTORS ? CANADIAN ARMED FORCES
ARE STILL PLAYING
?COWBOYS AND INJUN GAMES?.

They?re behaving like little kids marching around the kitchen banging on pots and pans. You know how Canada re-enacts old wars, like the Plains of Abraham, Louisburg and other monuments of the colonial past. The fife and drum set clowns around with old flintlock guns just for fun. You can get you photo taken on that guillotine thing. They sure took this seriously, didn?t they? They?re still playing their baby games, but they?ve got serious artillery in their hands.

12:10 PM There are now between 2,500 and 3,000 OPP and RCMP in a perimeter around the people about 1 mile away. There is 50 sq. mi. squared off.

How to get there: From Niagara Falls and Toronto, take Highway 6 straight south from Hamilton to Caledonia. From Buffalo take Highway 3 west to Highway 6 and north on Highway 6 to Caledonia. From Windsor take Higway 3 East to Highway 6 and go north. These are back ways.

10:30 am. On Site

Most of the scouting is being done by the native women, doing groceries, laundry, happen to be driving around window shopping. At the nearby subdivision is the RCMP staging area where they have 20 vehicles parked. Personnel around throughout the area. The military staging area is at the John Munro International Airport in Hamilton Ontario, 12 miles from Caledonia. Unity Road is just north of Caledonia which is closed off. This is the staging area for the OPP. Ambulances and buses all around. Onsight surveillance indicates that the OPP have upgraded from ?riot gear? to ?tactical gar? which is bullet proof vests, keeping their weapons nearby. One of the concerns of the Indians is that negotiations with band council and the Confederacy chief will be used by Ontario and Canada as a diversionary tactic to distract the people, calm everybody down. As soon as we relax, they will attack. This is what they did last week.

WHAT?S THE MESSAGE? POLICE STATE OFFICIALLY IMPLEMENTED

The Canadian government wants to send us a message that if we ever again lift our heads and demand our rights, they and their goons are coming after us with overwhelming military force. They want to show us they are the conquerors and we are the conquered. They want to tell us we have no rights and, even though we are in the right, they are taking our land and resources away from us anyway. They have never had a public hearing to look at the evidence of the Six Nations. They tell us, ?You can?t do anything about it. Too too bad for you?. With all their ambulances parked up front, it seems obvious they are out to make another Tianamen Square right in the middle of rural Ontario. They may even come in and bulldoze our houses and put non-native subdivisions on our lands. All Indian communities across Canada can be overwhelmed and bulldozed for developers from all over the world. They are being welcomed to come and take over stolen Indian land. The Canadian government institutions are protecting them. Do the Canadian people want this? I don?t think so. We know about this old strategy. Soon, if we look at them the wrong way we might be eliminated one way or another. Canada is sanctioning this process. In the Six Nations case, neither Canada nor Ontario take responsibility. Is it the police?s? All these public enquiries into police behaviour show is how police can hide the abuse and murders of Indians and how to cover up their crimes efficiently.

9:10 am

Need more people. The Coalition in Support of Indigenous Sovereignty stated that the presence of 1000 OPP was confirmed by CHCH TV news this morning. RCMP are using the Hamilton Airport as a staging ground.

Behind Canadian Tires on Kinross St. Caledonia, there were 18 ? 11 passenger vans, great big ones. They are full OPP officers. One seen with gun on passenger side. There were some standing behind the vans. Couldn?t tell what they were doing.

From Marlene: ?Yesterday at night at Radio Canada (CBC in french), at the end of 6:00 pm news they invited a rights specialist, and he told what happens now was highly predictable due to Canada’s mistakes on the matter of territories and that your claims might be justificated (welll….it is still CBC, they won’t accept to say you guys are totally right!). Not surprisingly though, the only coverage of the event shows images of haudenasaunee flags and tires burning, nothing about police violence. This media manipulation is sickening?.

7:30 FRIDAY APRIL 21, 2006

EXTREME HIGH ALERT! POLICE MOVE IN FOR THE SLAUGHTER

Twenty RCMP vans arrived loaded with Mounties and weapons arrived. Ambulances nearby. Need people right now! Phone working sporadically. Need alternative communications. Need people to stand with us with cameras, eyes and ears. Contact everybody you can to get the word out. Need some medical personnel to help in case of injury.

OPP and it is believed the Canadian Army are coming in too at Hamilton airport at 9:30 am.

5:20 AM Friday April 21, 2006

PREPARE FOR MILITARY OPPRESSION: OKA BLUEPRINT BROUGHT OUT AGAIN

Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Allies,

We need information about the moves being made against us, solidarity, witnesses to stand with us, alternative communication systems, cameras, food, medicine, runners, people to apply pressure on the Prime Minister, Parliament, Premier of Ontario, Governor General, etc. Addresses and phone numbers are further down this email, contact with and information to media to get the word out, supporters outside of Canada to put pressure on governments, United Nations, protests?. and whatever you can think of to help us prevent bloodshed, imprisonment, persecution.

As happened at Oka they cut off our communication with the outside world. They seem to have already done that at Six Nations. We need reports, to ensure safety if someone gets hurt.

We have learned 1000 OPP have been brought in nearby and WE received the following email:

I wanted to pass on information I heard from an employee who works at the Hamilton Airport. Apparently at 9:30am tomorrow the military will arrive there and begin using the airport as a staging area.

in solidarity,

Thanks, C. What other info do you have? Anything at all. Whatever. Kahentinetha Horn, MNN Mohawk Nation News

Thanks to our Canadian supporters who do NOT want to live under a military dictatorship. Yesterday Prime Minister Stephen Harper visited the former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney in Montreal. Mulroney was the Prime Minister during the Mohawk Oka Crisis of 1990. One day after his visit with US President George Bush, he came back to Canada and ordered the army to attack us for defending our ancestral ceremonial site and burial grounds. We were under siege for 78 days. It?s really sad to see that Canadian leaders have learned nothing. If Prime Minister Harper is using the Mulroney blueprint, he?s headed for disaster. Look at the botch up that guy made in 1990. If he?s listening to George Bush, we?re all in trouble.

We need negotiation, consent and peaceful coexistence. The Six Nations grievances are deeply rooted, complex and well documented, going back centuries.

She:kon

It has come to our attention that the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance started on December 8th to place an illegal and unconstitutional embargo on businesses conducted by Indian nations. It is a blatant attempt to economically strangle our economy. You are criminalizing customers who purchase products from us by threatening to prosecute, jail, fine and seize their cars. Even internet and mail order sales have been criminalized. This is a small remaining part of our economy that survived your appropriation of the land and resources that sustained our ancestors from time immemorial.

Throughout the territory claimed by New York State, Indigenous people are governed by our constitution, the Kaianereh?ko:wa/Great Law of Peace. As a Woman Title Holder, it is my duty to inform you that you are violating the Two Row Wampum Agreement, which governs our relationship. You have no jurisdiction over Indigenous people. All of New York State is unsurrendered Indigenous land. According to our constitution, we can only deal with the President of the United States as set out in the U.S. Constitution.

New York State is not only breaching the two constitutions by invading our jurisdiction, but they are attacking our economy. Your embargo is meant to strangle our nation economically in order to topple our government. According to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, all Peoples have a right to freely assure their economic, social and cultural development. This obvious attempt to strangle us economically is a violation of the duty to promote international cooperation between nations. It?s an attempt to stop the creation of equal opportunities for employment and economic development for our people. It?s interfering with our social security and represents a new variation on the ongoing attempt to commit cultural, social and economic genocide.

Because of the economic stranglehold that the colonial states exercised over our people, cigarette manufacturing has become the largest employer of our people on our territories. No attempts have been made to negotiate alternate economic arrangements with our traditional constitutional governments. We have a right to conduct tax free commercial enterprises. Your attempt to stop people from buying products on our territories makes it obvious that you do not want to accord us the same rights that you assume you have on territories you claim to govern. Moreover, you are occupying our land for which you have not paid us any taxes whatsoever for your use of our land and resources. Whatever makes you think that we do not have the same right as anyone else to support our families?

You are the visitors on our land who stole everything from us. You impoverished us. Now you want to kill our means of livelihood. Everyone has a right make a living – individuals, states, nations. So do we, internationally and locally.

The Haudenosaunee and New York State have no treaty. A ?treaty? is ?a compact made between two or more ?independent? nations. New York State is not a nation. It cannot conclude treaties with Indigenous nations nor invade our jurisdiction. If you want to alter current relations you should send an emissary to our constitutional governments through the President of the United States. Your attempt to impose your will by force is a violation of international law and a throwback to the old days of colonialism and piracy. Only the President of the United can deal with us. Even in this case, a neutral arbitrator agreeable to both parties must help with the negotiations between us and the United States. Using the police and courts of the usurping party to threaten the other party is not legal.

We have never submitted to American sovereignty. According to the U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause 2, Paragraph 1, our relationship is nation-to-nation. The Poospatuck Nation is one of our allied nations whom we have agreed to protect under our Constitution of the Haudenosaunee. It is not legal for New York State to deal in anyway with the Poospatuck Nation of Long Island. New York State cannot invade this nation?s jurisdiction. There are no agreements with the United States for the Poospatuck to submit themselves to the jurisdiction of any foreign government such as the United States, or to any federal, state or local government without our participation and consent. The Poospatuck cannot gain federal law recognition without our permission.

In 1918, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson spoke for the world when he declared that the era of conquest and aggrandizement was gone. Everybody realized that you can?t have peace so long as strong nations continued to force their will on smaller ones. Not content to have driven us to the bottom rungs of the economy, you are continuing to search for new ways to squeeze the last drop of life blood from us.

New York State is an invading colonial society which is located on unsurrendered Indigenous land. New York State is committing a crime when it coerces customers to pay them taxes for purchasing cigarettes, tobacco, gas or any product from Indigenous nations. New York State is illegally invading the sovereign jurisdiction of the Poospatuck Nation who never gave their informed consent to give up their land, sovereignty and tax free rights.

Your illegal imposition of taxes to attack our economic base, to end our custodial responsibility for our land, to limit our rights in all the communities of the friends and allies of the Kanion?ke:haka/Mohawk Nation, to extend New York State and federal jurisdiction over us, or to otherwise compromise our inherent sovereignty is a crime.

Onen

DO YOU SUFFER FROM “POLITICAL PARANOIA”?

TAKE THE TEST.

MNN. Jan. 16, 2005. When the 109th Congress convened in Washington D.C. in January 2005, Senator Bill Frist, a doctor, filed a bill that would define “political paranoia” as a mental disorder. Every social disaster or political movement has its loonies: McCarthyism, John Birch Society, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Jim Jones, David Koresh, Crusty the Clown, Pat Robertson, Oren Lyons, David Ahenakew, etc. What conditions have to exist before the message of the paranoid takes place. Well, here’s a test, folks, to find out where you are on the scale.

Just answer the questions and score them from 1 to 10.

1. My blood boils when I see George Bush in the news.

2. I wince when I see colonial flags like the Stars and Stripes or the Maple Leaf on Indian cars.

3. I believe that the involvement of Tribal councils in the United States and the band councils in Canada in land claims, casino high tech deals are fraudulent and that they are out for themselves.

4. I cannot listen to reservation radio stations financed by the federal government without becoming enraged. The cherry picked opinions of the tribal and band councilors or their employees infuriates me.

5. A sign objecting to the casino has been sitting on my lawn for the past 5 years.

6. I avoid speaking my mind because I am afraid I might get called down or get an egg thrown on my car windshield or get my welfare cut off.

7. I believe that everything the chiefs say is the gospel truth. Halleluyah!

8. I believe that Homeland Security or CSIS may be listening in on my phone conversations. So I use an obscure dialect for code – like Mohawk.

9. I am opposed to the concept of an individual ownership society.

10. I use traditional herbs to treat all ailments, including my political paranoia.

11. I avoid speaking to anyone in authority, including the Wal Mart cashier.

12. I think that the chiefs and councilors of my territory are unbiased.

13. I supported these same people in the last election.

14. I have trouble admitting that I suffer from political paranoia.

If you score from 1 to 20, nothing bothers you. You probably don’t listen to the media. You may be a hermit or can’t afford cable. You are a winner because you just don’t know or care about what is going on. If you scored between 100 and 140 you are aware of what is going on and are still normal in this day and age. You don’t have to be treated by Bush’s new paranoia pills – Paxil or Prozac.

Hey, wait a minute! Here’s a new business venture for some enterprising Mohawks – manufacturing cheap generic anti-depressants. Carry on, George!
