Mohawks of Canada Appeal for Immediate Support


MNN: April 25, 2008. Mohawks surrounded at the quarry in Tyendinaga. Ontario Provincial Police OPP fully armed with guns drawn. They are yelling through blow horns ordering the Rotiskenekete to come down with their hands up, or else they are going to take them out. The Rotiskenekete have told the OPP they are not coming down from there.

We have been informed that help will probably not arrive in time. The OPP have said they are coming right away. There are 20 left at the quarry. Many have already been arrested.


BACKGROUND from Mohawk Nation News

This situation could be more complicated than
appears at present. The Canadian Special Forces,
which is the main military unit that would be active in the United States under the “Civil Assistance Plan”, is moving the so-called Joint Task Force 2 to the Trenton area, just 25 miles from Tyendinaga. They will be forming a new special forces battalion. Land in the Trenton area is being secretly bought up by the government for a base and training site. A total of 400 hectares (1.5 square miles) will be purchased.

This is Mohawk land. Could this be the reason for the over-the-top reaction by the Ontario
Provincial Police (OPP)? Or is it a case of insiders trying to profit from foreknowledge of the government’s plans?

“JTF-2 plans $220M move: Counter-terrorism unit expected to vacate Dwyer Hill for Trenton.” David Pugliese, with files from Jessey Bird, The Ottawa Citizen (Published: Tuesday, January 22, 2008.)

The Canadian military has earmarked $220 million to build a new base for the Joint Task Force 2 counter-terrorism unit, with plans calling for the secretive formation to move out of Ottawa sometime after 2010.

Defence Construction Canada , a Crown
corporation that handles the Defence Department’s building needs, is asking for
“expressions of interest” from contractors and consultants for the development of what it calls a multi-functional training and administrative campus.

The new facility is to be in ” Eastern Ontario ,” with the specific location considered secret at this point, according to the information provided so far to construction and engineering contractors. But Chief of the Defence Staff Gen. Rick Hillier has recommended to cabinet that JTF2’s new base be located at Canadian Forces Base Trenton.

Public Works and Government Services Canada has already purchased three properties adjacent to CFB Trenton for the Defense Department.

Those total just under 130 hectares. Another 270 hectares are also being looked at for purchase.

“It’s a number of properties that we’re continuing to negotiate with,” said Public Works
spokeswoman Meeta Bhimani. . . .
