"Why Should we have to purchase back our stolen land with compensation that is our money anyways?" - John Hawke

 

In this episode we speak with John Hawke, and Indigenous man from the Beausoleil First Nation and long time activist, who on June 21st, 2019 - a day the Canadian state has proclaimed to be National Indigenous Peoples day - set up a blockade outside the entrance to Awenda provincial park as part of campaign to raise awareness for Indigenous rights and particularly land claims, treaty responsibilities, and the federal policies of extinguishing Indigenous title.

 

John invites people to visit the blockade and the Oshkimaadziig camp and organize resistance to colonial policies.

 

You can support the camp by donating donate for camp maintenance and supplies (ex.  chainsaw needs repair, camp cabin needs maintenance) - Send e-transfer to:ojibwayrebel@gmail.com
