Please read, forward, post, etc the article below regarding the potential conflict tonight/tomorrow in the Akwesasne reservation straddling the Canadian-US border near Cornwall, Ontario.
A group of independent media / indigenous solidarity activists is currently heading to Akwesasne to support the Mohawk community with independent media (video, photo, written, hopefully audio) coverage.
For updates, contact Harsha Walia (No One is Illegal-Vancouver) - harsha@resist. ca, Jaggi Singh (Montreal) - jaggisingh@gmail. com, and/or Dru Oja Ojay (www.dominionpaper. ca) - dru.oja.jay@ gmail.com to let them know that you would like updates re Akwesasne via email. Please respect their work & do not use their contact information for any other purpose.
For those working on urgent radio updates and/or with tight written media deadlines, you may try to contact me in Akwesasne by phone @ 514-583-6432, but please only do so after you have received the updates from Harsha, Jaggi and/or Dru, and only if you have access to a media outlet and can provide immediate coverage. I *may* be able to coordinate interviews with folks in Akwesasne if it is in their interest - text me your name, media outlet & cell number and I will get back to you if possible. I will be offline & will not receive any email responses for a day or two.
