Mi’kmaq Warriors who were jailed after the brutal raid by RCMP at the #MikmaqBlockade near #Elsipogtog on Thurs Oct 17th, 2013 faced continued abuse within the prison system. 4 warriors remain in jail, 2 have been granted bail. Upon detention, Mi’kmaq Warriors endured physical assault on behalf of Correctional staff. Call the Ombudsman, file a complaint and demand:

  • Access to the phone, including to legal representation
  • Access to blankets, bedding
  • Access to basic hygienic needs, such as toilet paper , toothpaste, toothbrushes, showers
  • Adequate food provisions
  • Access to Medical Care
  • End use of solitary confinement

The remaining Warriors behind bars are: Aaron Francis, James Pictou, Coady Stevens and Germain Breault. File a complaint with the Provincial Ombudsman and demand justice for the those Warriors behind bars as all of the above demands had been denied to and experienced by the Warriors who were just released.

Tell the Ombudsman that Land Defenders must be treated with respect and basic human dignity.

The Prison Injustice System is part of the larger project of colonization, whereas Indigenous peoples are disproportionately incarcerated, and Federally over-represented in the prison system. This is part of a systemic issue of mistreatment of Indigenous peoples, and a direct assault on Indigenous Land Defenders asserting their Inherent and Treaty Rights & Title on unceded traditional territories. Mi’kmaq Warriors were some of 40 people arrested at the Oct 17th RCMP raid of an anti-shale gas blockade wherein local Indigenous and non-Native allies seized SWN – a Houston-based company’s – equipment. The blockade lasted 19 days – costing SWN over $1 million – effectively protecting the lands, waters and future generations from the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. There has been no consultation with or Free Prior Informed Consent from the local Indigenous communities who hold title to the land by inherent and treaty rights.

  2. Instead of collecting donation, why not peacefully march into the supreme court of justice and demand that evidence of a crime to be show for the illegal capture of the Mi’Kmaq. First, did they commit an actual crime as defined by the Corporation of Canada? (google “elements of a crime in canada”) Second, once you realize that they couldn’t have possibly committed a crime punishable by the law put in place by the Corporation of Canada, then you must also realize that they men have thus been captured by a corporate entity.
