Join the OFL Power of Many Solidarity Caravan to Support 1492 Land Back Lane Land Defenders on October 27th.
On Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at 3:00 p.m., a car caravan will depart from the parking lot at 1550 Upper James Street, Hamilton, L9B 2L6. We will adorn our vehicles with messages of support and calls for action and then will drive to the “6 and 6” camp, where we will show that labour and the Power of Many are firmly on side with Haudenosaunee Land Defenders and that together we reject the unjust court decision made yesterday and continued colonial systemic oppression. Read the OFL statement here.
2:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. vehicles gather at the parking lot at South Hamilton Square (Fortino's plaza on Upper James) to adorn vehicles with painted messages and signs.
3:00 p.m. vehicles depart from parking lot at 1550 Upper James Street, Hamilton and drive through Haldimand/Caledonia to the OPP blockade which has been erected on Argyle Street South near the "6 and 6" camp. The blockade is in front of the Canadian Tire at 365 Argyle Street South, Caledonia, ON N3W 1Z2 (across the street from Tim Hortons).
The Ontario Federation of Labour condemns the violence and surveillance state Land Defenders are being subjected to at 1492 Land Back Lane. We are the Power of Many and we are fighting for a just and safe Ontario For All!
