Canada's native people have had several conferentations regarding the topic of "blockades".
This is our ground. They should not be able to get away with leaving their materials on our land!
We will protest. Get people's attention.
This is outrageous, this is our land and we will not clean up what has been left behind form others who use our land.
At the Sarcee Indian reserve near Calgary, there has been debris left from militaries that have crossed their lands. The Indians want the armed forces to clean up the mess they left. They will fight to have what they deserve.
Also very disrespectful.
We are not leaving until they do whats right!
The blockade has stopped anyone from crossing the bridge into the reserve. The Indians are trying to bring the attention to the Department of National Defense that something needs to be done.
We deserve the land we live on and will stand up for what we stand for.
We deserve a village for our community.
In Quebec another blockade has been created. Ujibugamu, won concessions from their government over the construction of a village for the band.
We DESERVE a village.
In order to stand up to the government police and the military Chief, Bernard Omniayak lead some other band leaders in developing a Native Defense Treaty.
