Activists, Be Smart!

The below message was found on facebook, but the message is helpful

Okay, lots of people are rightly upset about the FIRST NATION TERMINATION ACTS being pushed through by HARPER and the Conservatives, but please be smart about the response:

We’ve had Gatherings for decades, involved in Voting for decades, Letter-Writing Campaigns, Petitions, and Protests (that never have left the ‘approved’ designated spaces)….FOR YEARS – and we are STILL where we are today – a Termination Plan (http://goo.gl/GJK8z) by a MAJORITY GOVERNMENT, elected leaders getting locked out of the House of Commons, and likely a matter of months until these Acts are put through.

If any of these means above are ENDS in themselves (and go no further); they are Dead-Ends with few results.

They do not hear because we are not speaking their language.

If you want RESULTS; understand the illegal nature of what they are doing, organize, and disrupt the flow of finance and capital (multi-millions a day) which is the language, lifeblood, and religion of the Conservatives doing this. Road, Rail, Water, and Border Commerce (which COUNTLESS routes of each run right through our reserve lands and our juristictions). Blockades in each are what can (and will) disrupt that life-blood, warrant their attention, and bring them to the table.

History proves both of these roads: one where the wheels merely spin – and the other which actually helps create traction and distance.

Those that reap the blessings of freedom must bear the fatigue of supporting it.
