Algonquin Pow-wow: Resisting uranium mining in Canada
Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Allies,
Mohawk Nation News has taken a strong sovereignist position in support of the Sharbot Lake issue. We think that Canada must adhere to their request for a nation-to-nation relationship according to Algonquin, Canadian and international law.
The Algonquins are having a pow wow at Ardoch Lake on September 1st. See the poster below for information. We ecnourage all our brothers, sisters, friends and allies, native and non-native, to come and stand by and support the Algonquins in our fight against Frontenac Ventures. They want to open a uranium mine on our unsurrendered land. MREL who were making weapons and testing them on Algonquin land have now left for parts unknown, probably to turn up somewhere under another name.
We should all link our arms together as the Great Law of Peace has instructed us to do, with all our Indigenous peoples in the Western Hemisphere. Learn more about the Algonquin issues. Find out why the Algonquins refuse to acknowledge the colonial court and have withdrawn their case completely. Come and meet the Alonqiuns, dance, listen to music, look for crafts, traditional food and much more. Watch out for the "Ronatsistokwasehton". Mostly, have a good time.
