Mohawk Nation News Updates

AKWESASNE, ONTARIO — Yesterday’s radio interview with Canadian Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan on Cornwall’s AM1220 was simply a chance for the minister to deflect blame away from the Federal government over the situation at Akwesasne, and to continue to mislead the public in believing there have been efforts at the federal level to resolve the situation.
Instead of addressing the great financial impacts being felt by Cornwall businesses, Minister Van Loan simply restated his stance that CBSA will not send their officers back to work unarmed, and he continued to insist that Mohawk Council of Akwesasne was consulted on the issue of arming the customs officers, despite the Grand Chief’s announcement last week disputing this claim. The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne maintains that the federal government of Canada must consult on a government to government level with the Mohawks, and that the Canada Border Services Agency does not have the authority to consult, or negotiate, on behalf of the government of Canada.

In peace & solidarity,

MNN. June 18, 2009. Mohawks refuse to have guns. We wanted to keep our people safe. The Haudenosaunee and our allies are the custodians of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River watershed which we never surrendered. We are the “keepers of the Eastern Door” of Great Turtle Island. According to the Jay Treaty 1794 the US-Canada border is meant for the visitors, not for any Indigenous.

The colonists can put whatever restrictions they can get away with on their own people. They can’t interfere with the inherent right of the Ongwehonwe to traverse our land free from harassment by the occupation forces. We will decide what kind of identification we will use to traverse our territory.

The Canada and US border services agencies shut down their imaginary line on May 31 2009. Now they want to combine their border patrol on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River.

Why did Canada want to put in this gun policy at Akwesasne knowing we would object? Border agents were encouraged to create a confrontation. We did not react and made no justification for the guns.

The US and Canada know we are sovereign. It’s a nation-to-nation issue. Legally they have to go through the Governor General or US President to speak to us.

It looks like Canada wanted to open the door for the US military to legally enter Canada. Canada’s Minister of Public Safety, Peter Van Loan, announced on June 18th that the US is going to fly unmanned predator drones over Akwesasne from Fort Drum near Watertown New York. These can accurately fire missiles at specific houses, buildings and even people, just like in Afghanistan and Pakistan. They can take pictures and listen to conversations 30 miles into Canada. The fake situation in Akwesasne is meant to justify this surveillance across the continent to spy on Canadians. Since we have been illegally declared as enemy combatants, they can take away our civil and human rights and fire any kind of missiles at us. They are doing this in Pakistan, violating their sovereignty.

Conservative government’s reaction to our position has been violent. Tyendinaga Mohawks were attacked by what looked like military commandos.
Why? A militia is now being set up in Caledonia to go after the Six Nations people. Presently they are unarmed and not in uniform.

Ron Moran, president of the Customs and Immigration Union, said the majority of the guards have been advised not to return to work as long as the border crossing stays on Kawenoke, Cornwall Island. Not having guns could have adverse health effects. We are being used in a phony labor management dispute. It looks like the border guards are going to be removed and replaced by the military.

Canada and Big Tobacco deliberately created the downward spiral of our community trying to bring us under trusteeship. We have been harassed, criminalized and can’t get jobs. We have been put in a helpless position and in personal debts of millions of dollars in bogus fines for as much as $50 million for conducting trade and commerce to feed our families. Big Tobacco of the UK does not want competitors. They took our ceremonial tobacco and turned it into a multi billion dollar business.

Randy Hillier, Member of the Ontario Government, said on June 18, 2009, “The Mohawks only arrived in Canada after the American War of Independence and were granted reserves”. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Ontario, Toronto, Canada, Hochelaga and Donnacona are all Iroquois place names. He stated further that Prime Minister Stephen Harper can arm border guards if he wants to. He’s insinuating that we have no rights. He’s using anger at us to stir up votes to become the Ontario Conservative Party leader.

Recent Federal Court of Canada orders bear out the plot. Two Mohawk women were brutally assaulted on June 14, 2008 at the Akwesasne border. They could not bring charges against the border guards unless they paid court costs. Prothonotary Mireille Tabib made an order on October 23, 2008 that Mohawks residing in Akwesasne and Kahnawake are not residents of Canada. Yet someone coming from South Africa, if assaulted, can lay criminal charges for free! The Canadian judicial system has made us persona non grata with no rights to be protected by their system like everybody else in the world. This violates the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Article 1.

Crown agencies such as the RCMP, OPP, CBSA and the Attorney General of Canada have refused to investigate this crime. Subsequent orders supporting Tabib are: Judge Francois Lemieux on January 29, 2009; and Claude Morissette on March 16, 2009. [613-952-4238].

Is the incident at the border a pretext to show how the Canadian and US military and police are going to treat people? The siege and surveillance look like growing martial law. Laws have been passed to protect the military and police from anyone defending themselves from them. Cops can now sue their victims. The multinational corporations used this same tactic to shut down the environmentalists.

Europe and the US are fighting over Canada’s resources. The Europeans have the money, but not the soldiers. They control the banks, car companies, mines, etc. The US has the bombs, soldiers, planes and war machinery. The US economy is now deflated and headed toward bankruptcy. Monied people bought up everything at low prices, like companies, houses, infrastructure, factories, and roads. The US is in hawk to the banksters, becoming a vassal state to Europe. Economically desperate US manpower can be used as mercenaries by the banksters for global conquest.

This scheme was concocted a long time ago and being played out to bankrupt and create 350 million desperate poor US and Canadian people. Are the US and Canada trying to provoke and trap us Mohawks into defending ourselves just like the Palestinians so they can come in and do away with us first and then the rest later?

MNN June 17, 2009. It was a currency fight between the Euro and the Dollar. 911 showed how vulnerable the US was. It looks like it was a pretext event to destroy liberty in the name of security.

MNN received a number of hostile messages from some Germans and Austrians after the June 7, 2009 article, "MNN Two New World Order Camps Fighting for World Domination?" It was about the sneaky plans of two competing fascist camps, the European Union and the US. They both want the resources of Great Turtle Island and to enslave the people of the world.

As unemployment soars across Europe and the banking crisis spreads, member nations are squabbling about who should be bailed out. The June 22, 2009 Maclean’s Magazine issue features a misleading cover story, “The Return of Fascism in Europe”, by Jonathan Gatehouse and Mark Steyn. They describe fringe groups that gained votes by targeting the immigrants, whose countries the Europeans have raped. During WW II the rich financed the Brown Shirts to go after Jews who were their main business rivals. On Great Turtle Island the Indigenous are being scapegoated where all the resources are inherently Ongwehonwe.

Historically, Germans were the workers and had the iron and coal to build up the steel industry for the military, rail, automotive and ship building. The Austro-Germans have been exploiting Africa and South America since the mid 1800's, especially Brazil. Ever since German steel giant, Krupp, lost some of its holdings after WWII, these industrialists have been trying to steal it back.

The Europeans have very little resources and are after the Western Hemisphere, which is all Indigenous. They are working with their French buddies to get the European Union to compete with the North American Union for global control. German Chancellor Angela Merkel cut a deal with Canada’s Magna to save 35,000 German jobs at Opel. Just how "Canadian" is Magna?

Frank Stronach, (nee Franz Strohsack) owner and founder of Magna, is a true colonial corporatist. He fled war torn Austria for Great Turtle Island. He has the usual rags to riches life story. In fact, he’s just another pirate who got rich by stealing our land and resources.

Stronach controls Magna. He started out in tool and die making. He promoted the sale of parts to General Motors. Soon he was the sole supplier of important components. Like other billionaires, Stronach ruthlessly merged and acquired companies. Today Magna makes $16 plus billion annually and employs people in 25 countries worldwide.

Frank lives in Austria. He has received awards and honorary degrees for his business activities from Haifa University in Israel; the B'nai Brith; Order of Canada; the Ernst & Young Award"; the Austrian Gold Medal; and the Canadian Yves Landry Foundation Award.

His daughter, Belinda Stronach, was both a Liberal and Conservative Member of Parliament. She is now at the Privy Council Office where the real decisions are made by the Canadian government.

There are 13 board members of Magna including Frank and Belinda. Others are listed at the end of this article.

According to the Macleans story, things are getting worse in Europe. These fringe parties can be shut down by denying them public funds to which they are entitled. The Europeans are becoming desperate making it possible for a dictator to emerge to carry out a global conquest, like Bismarck, Napoleon, Hitler, Louis IV and so on.

Are the Germans rebuilding their military? The Federal Republic of Germany wants our resources. They are lending $1.2 billion to Baffinland Iron Mines. Resource Capital Funds of Colorado and Australia are the main shareholders. The proposed Mary River Project in the far north will produce 18 million tons of iron ore a year for 25 years for German steel mills. It will consist of open pit mining using conventional technology. In March 2009 they signed a memorandum of understanding with the Inuit. Their role in international mining in gold, copper, uranium and coal is growing by leaps and bounds.

The Macleans cover shows screaming youth gangs in fatigues wearing black berets carrying semi automatics. The headline is in black on a blood red flag. It gives the impressions that everybody’s gone crazy so they have to crack down on them. What will the Europeans and US be fighting over next? Our water!
As the Daily Finance stated, “Whisky is for drinking. Water is for fighting.”
