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
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.
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.

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.
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.
