MNN. Nov. 3, 2016. Today, the Kanien’ke:haka are blocking the CP train tracks at 9 PM at Adirondack Junction, to stand with our Lakota relatives at Standing Rock in North Dakota who continue to defend our Mother. The women have given consent to the rotiskarekethe to stand on the front lines to protect our sacred water for millions of people.tar-sands-pipeline-map-north-america_canadian-association-petroleum-producers

 

Our relatives are being threatened and abused by the militarized police in their homeland. The US government protects Dakota Access Pipe Line while disregarding environmental disasters. The Canadian and American Governments neglect their obligations to their people. We stand for the safety of all.

The people see the link between the CP train that commutes through Kahnawake and their origins from Standing Rock. They transport Bakken crude oil from North and South Dakota; 85% of the metal “black serpent” that slithers the land, carrying this poison, cannot safely carry heavy crude oil. Billions of gallons of this explosive material is being transported throughout great turtle island by fragile tankers on a daily basis, putting families at risk.

Lac Megantic Bakken bomb explosion July 6, 2013.

The railroad traverses residential areas at Kahnawake and throughout great turtle island. The kanien’ke:haka fear a Lac Megantic disaster similar to the explosion on July 6, 2013. It erupted after passing through kahnawake. Lac Megantic July 6, 2013, blast. The blast killed 47 people and injured civilians. This time bomb is preventable. Many alternatives are available. We demand safe alternatives by the oil corporations. MNN Editor.

MNN. Nov. 2, 2016. President Obama said of the tense situation at Standing Rock, “We’re going to let it play out for several more weeks and then determine whether or not this can be resolved in a way that I think is properly attentive to the traditions of the first Americans”. images-6

“Playing” with us, the coming severe winter weather, the people who will have to keep warm in the harsh cold, and at the right time send in the construction team to finish the pipeline. Once the ground starts freezing it’s hard to keep digging.

The unist’oten clan of the wetsu’suwet’en nation of far northern Brtitish Columbia on the Maurice River were given the same challenge to give up their homeland. They have been blocking 13 pipelines since 2009.

They stayed. They built where the pipelines were to be placed their permanent homes with wood stoves, solar power, electricity, four or more buildings, including a traditional pit house. They are occupying their land, with a permanent growing community.

Watch “Holding their ground”. Stop the pipeline.
