Building Indigenous Solidarity in Settler Communities
Anti-Native Organizing & the Caledonia Crisis: Countering Right Wing
Backlash and Building Indigenous Solidarity in Settler Communities.
Monday, April 26th 7pm @ Ed Video 2nd Floor of 40 Baker Street Building
Presentations, Discussion & Launch Event for Upping the Anti: A Journal of
Theory and Action #9
The Six Nations people of the Grand River territory have been faced with a steadily
increasing level of anti-Native organizing since they began the reclamation of the
Douglas Creek Estates housing development in Caledonia in February of 2006. In
addition to the large anti-native protests held by local residents, anti-native
activists (who claim to speak on behalf of all non-natives) have organized a militia
to oppose native lawlessness, have held protests against native smoke shops, and
have supported actions of local governments to criminalize Six Nations land
defenders. At the same time, there have been some important initiatives over the
past several years that have seen non-native activists organize in solidarity with
Six Nations and work on building on going relationships of solidarity and struggle.
