Idle No More protests target bridges, roads across Canada





Idle No More protests target bridges, roads across Canada Idle-no-more-jan-5-sarniaWarror flag flies as INM protesters temporarily block the Blue Water Bridge border crossing near Sarnia, Ont, Jan 5, 2013.

Some crossings shut down by First Nations demonstrators

CBC News, Jan 5, 2013

The Idle No More protest movement continues to gain
steam with more demonstrations Saturday, after Prime Minister Stephen
Harper announced he would meet with a delegation of First Nations
chiefs, including Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, who is now on day
26 of a hunger strike.

A number of groups have pledged to block bridges, several of which straddle the Canada-U.S. border.

Police in Cornwall, Ont., closed the International Bridge for more
than three hours in response to an Idle No More protest that began
mid-Saturday morning. About 350 protesters crossed the bridge. The
bridge reopened by 2 p.m. local time.

And in Saskatchewan, RCMP say they’ve close off Highway 624 from
Highway 1 to Highway 46 for safety precautions due to a protest of about
300 people.

Meanwhile, the Idle No More protest that was blocking commercial
trains on Canadian National Rail tracks between Moncton and Miramichi,
N.B. on Friday has been shut down. CN Rail filed a temporary court
injunction Friday afternoon.

Organizers with Idle No More have organized several other demonstrations on Saturday at sites including:


  • The Peace Arch crossing in Surrey, B.C., from 1 to 2 p.m. PT.
  • NWT’s Deh Cho Bridge between 2 and 4 p.m. MT.
  • The Canadian side of the Blue Water Bridge in Sarnia, Ont., for one
    hour. Sarnia police said the bridge would be closed in both directions
    from noon until 1 p.m.
  • The Peace Bridge between Fort Erie and Buffalo in the Niagara
    region, starting at 1 p.m. ET. Organizers say it will be “peaceful,” and
    they will occupy only one lane of traffic on the international bridge.
  • A disruption is also planned at the Queenston/Lewiston Bridge between Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake.

‘Cautiously optimistic’


CBC reporter Aarti Pole is at the protest in Fort Erie, where about
75 people have gathered. She says the plan is for Canadian protesters to
march across the bridge to meet with their American counterparts in the
middle.

Pole said the protesters were “cautiously optimistic”
about the upcoming meeting between Harper and First Nations leaders and
were particularly concerned about the Indian Act, the Navigation Act and
the Environmental Assessment Act.

Organizers in NWT in say they chose the Deh Cho Bridge because it’s
still on Dene land. They plan to do a round dance and have a feast on
the bridge.



Meanwhile, Spence has said she would attend the meeting with Harper
on Jan. 11. But when asked whether it would be enough to end her hunger
strike, she said she would wait to see the outcome.

First Nations chiefs are concerned the federal government isn’t honouring their treaty rights.

Spence and her supporters want Gov. Gen. David Johnston and Ontario
Premier Dalton McGuinty at the meeting as well, and said the hunger
strike could continue after Jan. 11.

The Attawapiskat chief has been conducting her hunger strike on
Victoria Island, just in sight of the Parliament buildings. She has
since been joined on the island by dozens more people. She is not alone
on her hunger strike. Cross Lake, Man., elder Raymond Robinson has also
gone without food since Dec. 11.

Aboriginal protesters march in protests across Canada for Idle No More cause


Linda Nguyen, Canadian Press, Saturday, January 05, 2013

TORONTO – Hundreds of protesters took to the streets in several
cities across Canada on Saturday as momentum continued to build for the
Idle No More movement.

The cause, which began last month, is in protest of the federal
government’s omnibus Bill C-45, which First Nations groups claim
threatens their treaty rights set out in the Constitution.

Idle No More protests target bridges, roads across Canada Idle-no-more-jan-5-akwesasne-bridge-2Mohawks from Akwesasne temporarily block New York State-Ontario border. Jan 5, 2013.

Waving flags and carrying placards, many of the demonstrators marched along roadways, highways and bridges.

On Saturday, police in Cornwall, Ont., closed the Seaway International Bridge as a public safety precaution.

The usually-busy border crossing, which connects the southeastern
Ontario city and Akwesasne, Ont., to Massena, N.Y., was closed for more
than three hours as demonstrators marched across the toll bridge.

Cornwall Sgt. Marc Bissonnette says police estimate there were about
150 to 200 protesters participating in the action, which was peaceful.
No incidents have been reported.

Meanwhile, the border crossing between Sarnia, Ont., and Port Huron,
Mich., and a stretch of Highway 403 in Hamilton, Ont., were also
temporarily shut down for Idle No More protests.

Those on Sarnia’s Blue Water Bridge banged drums, chanted and stood in the middle of the roadway to listen to speeches.

One of them included Greg Plain of Aamjiwnaang First Nation, who was
one of the organizers of a recent nearly-two week long blockade on a CN
Rail line in Sarnia.

“We just want to get the message out,” he said. “It’s not just us who
should be out there. There are a lot of other Canadians that are out
there supporting the natives and anybody else who want to hear it.”

Similar demonstrations were also held at the Peace Bridge between
Fort Erie, Ont., and Buffalo, N.Y., and others were planned for the
Queenston/Lewiston Bridge in Niagara Falls and Peace Arch crossing in
Surrey, B.C.

Police in Ontario also issued a general warning Saturday to
travellers to plan ahead because some roads and highways in these areas
may face longer than usual traffic delays.

The Idle No More actions were also organized to show support for
Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, who has been on a liquid diet since
Dec. 11.

Spence has vowed that she will not eat until she can get an audience
with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the Governor General and other First
Nations chiefs to discuss more revenue sharing and economic development
for reserves.

A spokesman for Stephen Harper says the prime minister agreed Friday
to a meeting with a delegation of leaders from the Assembly of First
Nations. Spence has said she intends to be at the meeting, which has
been set for Jan. 11.
