Six Nations land defender Theresa “Toad” Jamieson, and supporters, are calling for an Idle No More Flashmob outside the Cayuga courthouse JANUARY 16th.

In the context of the inspiring fight for Native rights in the Idle No More movement, we especially need to support land defenders who are dragged through the courts for asserting their rights. As the Idle No More movement grows, court injunctions are being used as a tool to threaten and criminalize grassroots activists (Tyendinaga:https://warriorpublications.wordpress.com/2013/01/03/sarnia-railway-clear-after-judge-orders-end-to-native-blockade/ Aamjwinaang: http://aptn.ca/pages/news/2013/01/07/tyendinaga-mohawks-say-if-police-tried-to-remove-blockade-there-would-have-been-a-fight/).

Toad has been defending Native land rights and Kanonhstaton, ever since the land was reclaimed by Six Nations in 2006. On December 12th, 2012, she was brought into the courts because of charges stemming from anti-Native rights activist Gary McHale’s provocations. On February 18, 2012, McHale forced his way onto Kanonhstaton, the Six Nations Reclamation site.

In fighting for the treaties and the Great Law of Peace, Toad stressed to the courts: ““I don’t accept that law, do you hear me? I don’t accept it. Do you see this? This is a Two Row wampum flag. You’re in the boat and I’m in the canoe, it’s supposed to be equal ruling.”

The judge ruled that Toad was challenging the jurisdiction of the courts and not following the “proper procedure” to do so. Despite wanting to continue with the trial that day, Toad was forced to the Cayuga courthouse on December 18th to discuss the matter of jurisdiction. On that day she arrived exactly 3 minutes late and the Justice had already benched a warrant for her arrest. Toad was forced yet again to move her trial date.

As Toad fights for the land, she fights for all of us. Through joining a beautiful round dance and by packing the court with supporters, we will be showing a powerful, necessary message and force. We support Toad. We will not let the Canadian government ignore the treaties, drag land defenders through the courts and protect the prejudice of anti-Native rights activist Gary McHale, any longer! Join us!
