Nov 29, 2013

In Canada the HWY 11 Land Defenders are are fighting against fracking on land in Mi'kmaq Territory. An encampment successfully blockaded SWN seismic trucks and the police moved in to evict them. With arrests and an injunction in place resistance is becoming more difficult, yet the fight to protect the land and water continues. A call-out is asking for solidarity actions around the world on Dec 2nd.

 

What To Do

On Monday Dec. 2nd HWY 11 Land Defenders are asking you to show your solidarity by taking action in your community. Where possible, highway shutdowns are encouraged however any action of support, such as banner drops, are welcome. #ShutDownCanada

A message from the HWY 11 Land Defenders:

“We are not giving up despite these harsh weather conditions, sacrificing time with our families, our jobs, our homes, not only to protect land, water and people but to ensure a brighter future for the next 7 generations. We are asking for more support, through road blocks to be in solidarity. This is not just an Elsipogtog issue, this is a global issue and we need to raise awareness. Show us support any way possible, sending thank you’s, road blocks, banners, even dropping by, all and every type of support is appreciated.”

ElsipogtogThe 3rd encampment in Mi’kmaq Territory, at HWY 11, which saw stand off’s between the Mi’kmaq peoples protecting the water and RCMP protecting corporate interests, is requesting widespread global support.

The Provincial Court of New Brunswick has approved an injunction which names 5 people, including “Jane” and “John Doe”, to target the HWY 11 encampment. This encampment has successfully turned away SWN vehicles and is preventing SWN from conducting seismic testing on unceded Mi’kmaq lands. Each day that SWN cannot conduct its testing, it costs the company $54, 000. SWN is once again looking to the RCMP to enforce the injunction most recently granted. At this time, the RCMP have used the injunction to target the Mi’kmaq and have set up a “check point” on HWY 11, where the RCMP stop vehicles to arrest passengers and drivers at their whim.

We remember the last time the RCMP enforced an injunction against the Mi’kmaq people. As seen historically, the RCMP will continue to enforce the violation of treaties and attack Indigenous self-determination. At this time, the RCMP are not only harassing Mi’kmaq Land Defenders and non-Native supporters, but continuing to throw them in jail. On Thursday, November 28th the Mi’kmaq again turned SWN away – declaring another day of victory. They are standing up against brutal police repression, and continued theft of Indigenous lands and ongoing colonization. Show them they are not alone!

On Monday Dec. 2nd HWY 11 Land Defenders are asking you to show your solidarity by taking action in your community. Where possible, highway shutdowns are encouraged however any action of support, such as banner drops, are welcome. #ShutDownCanada

Día de Acción de Emergencia – Solidaridad con #Elsipogtog 
#ShutDownCanada

Un mensaje de los Defensores de la Tierra en la Autopista 11:

“No estamos cediendo a pesar del duro estado de tiempo, sacrificando pasar tiempo con nuestras familias, nuestros trabajos, nuestras casas, no sólo para proteger la tierra, el agua, y el pueblo, sino para asegurar un futuro más prometedor para las próximas siete generaciones. Estamos pidiendo más apoyo por los bloqueos de carretera para estar en solidaridad. Este asunto no es sólo de Elsipogtog, es un asunto mundial y necesitamos concientizar al mundo de esto. Demuestren su apoyo con nosotros de cualquiera manera posible, mandar agradecimientos, bloqueos de carretera, pancartas, incluso visitarnos, todo tipo de apoyo estará agradecido.”

El tercer campamento en el Territorio de los Mi’kmaq, en la Autopista 11, donde ha ocurrido los enfrentamientos entre el pueblo Mi’kmaq protegiendo el agua y el RCMP (Policía Montado Canadiense Real) protegiendo los intereses de las corporaciones, está pidiendo el apoyo mundial a nivel general.

El Tribunal Provincial de New Brunswick ha aprobado un mandamiento judicial que nombra 5 personas, incluso “Jane” y “John Doe”, para fijar como objetivo al campamento de la Autopista 11. El campamento ha bloqueado con éxito el paso de los vehículos de SWN y está impidiendo la conducta de pruebas sísmicas por SWN en las tierras no cedidas de los Mi’kmaq. Cada día en que SWN no puede conducir sus pruebas, la compañía pierde $540,000. SWN está pidiendo de nuevo a el RCMP que haga cumplir el mandamiento más reciente cedido por el Tribunal. A esta hora, el RCMP ha utilizado el mandamiento para fijar los Mi’kmaq como objetivo y ha establecido un punto de control en la Autopista 11, donde los RCMP pueden parar los vehículos y detener a los conductores y pasajeros cuando quieran.

Recordamos la última vez en que el RCMP hizo cumplir un mandamiento contra el pueblo Mi’kmaq. Como hemos visto históricamente, el RCMP continuará imponiendo la violación de los tratados y atacando la autodeterminación Indígena. A esta hora, los RCMP no sólo están hostilizando los Mi’kmaq Defensores de la Tierra y los aliados no Indígenas, sino están siguiendo encarcelarlos. El jueves, 28 de noviembre los Mi’kmaq bloquearon el paso de SWN otra vez – declarando un día más de victoria. Se están levantando contra la represión brutal de la policía, y el robo de tierras Indígenas y la colonización que siguen en desarrollo. ¡Demuestren a ellos que no están solos!

El lunes, 2 de diciembre, los Defensores de la Tierra de la Autopista 11 piden que ustedes demuestren su solidaridad a fuerza de actuar en su comunidad. Donde sea posible, animamos los cierres de autopistas; sin embargo, cualquiera acción de apoyo, como dejar caer una pancarta, nos alegraría. #ShutDownCanada

Urgence : Journée d’action- Solidarité avec #Elsipogtog
#ShutDownCanada

Un message des résistant-e-s de HWY 11 :

« Nous n’abdiquons pas en dépit des conditions météos difficiles, du temps sacrifié loin de nos familles, de nos jobs et de nos maisons, pas seulement pour protéger la terre, l’eau et les gens mais aussi pour garantir un meilleur avenir pour les 7 prochaines générations. Nous demandons plus de support, plus de blocages en solidarité. Ceci ne concerne pas qu’Elsipogtog, c’est un enjeu global : nous devons éveiller les consciences. Démontrez nous votre support de toutes les façons possibles, envoyez nous des messages, bloquez des routes, déployez des bannières, venez même nous voir, n’importe quel type de support est apprécié. »

Le troisième campement en territoire Mi’kmaq, à HWY 11, lequel a vu les confrontations entre les Mi’kmaq qui protègent leur eau et la Gendarmerie Royale Canadienne (GRC) qui protège les intérêts corporatifs demande un support répandu et global.

La cour provinciale du Nouveau Brunswick a approuvé une injonction qui identifie 5 personnes, incluant “Jane” et “John Doe”, afin de cibler le campement HWY 11. Ce campement a repoussé avec succès les véhicules de SWN et a empêché la compagnie de réaliser les tests sismiques sur des terres Mi’kmaq non-cédées. Chaque jour que SWN n’arrive pas à faire ses tests, la compagnie perd 54 000$. SWN essaie encore une fois de forcer l’injonction qui lui a été accordé. À tout moment, la GRC a utilisé l’injonction pour cibler les Mi’kmaq et ont mis en place un point de contrôle sur HWY 11, où ils arrêtent les véhicules, passagers et conducteurs.

Rappelons-nous de la dernière fois que la GRC a fait appliquer une injonction contre le peuple Mi’kmaq. Comme le montre l’histoire, la GRC va continuer d’assurer la violation des traités et d’attaquer les droits d’autodétermination des autochtones. En ce moment, la GRC ne fait pas qu’harceler les résistant-e-s Mi’kmaq et leurs supporteurs non-autochtones, mais continue à les jeter en prison. Le jeudi 28 novembre, les Mi’kmaq ont encore une fois repoussé SWN, déclarant un autre jour victorieux. Ils sont en train de confronter la brutalité de la part de la police, et continue a voler les terres des pays autochtones et continuent le processus de colonization. Montrons leurs qu’ elles-ils ne sont pas seul-e-s!

Ce lundi 2 décembre, les résistant-e-s de HWY 11 vous demandent de démontrer votre solidarité en agissant dans vos communautés. Là où possible, nous encourageons à bloquer les autoroutes. Tous les types d’action sont bienvenues. #ShutDownCanada
