Yet again, the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee Six Nations near Caledonia are being invaded by developers and the authorities in the municipality of Haldimand. The developers, Mackenzie Meadows, want to build a housing development on unceded Haudenosaunee land, profiting from territory that does not belong to them. To do this they must steal the land from the rightful owners, the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee.
Peaceful resistance by the Haudenosaunee Land Defenders was met with court injunctions enforced by the Ontario Provincial Police who were called on by the Haldimand County Mayor, Ken Hewitt. Arrests were made and violence enacted on Land Defenders by the OPP.
Toronto 350 stands in support of all First Nation land defenders. We are in solidarity with 1492 Land Back Lane and encourage others to learn more and support Six Nation land defenders today.
