We, the undersigned, believe that Shawn Brant, spokesperson from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, should be released from jail and have all current criminal charges against him stayed. Given unresolved land claims, polluted drinking water, overwhelming poverty and suicide rates in First Nations communities across this country, we believe it should come as no surprise when First Nations people create physical impediments to halt the extraction of resources and wealth from their land. Therefore, we believe that First Nations peoples have the right to refuse to live in these conditions and that the exploitation of their land should cease.
