Kahnawake community members had erected blockade in show of solidarity with Standing Rock Sioux

CBC News, October 28, 2016

Indigenous activists briefly blocked a Mercier Bridge access ramp in a show of solidarity with opponents of a pipeline project in North Dakota, Kahnawake Peacekeepers said Friday night.

The activists erected a blockade on Highway 132 around 5 p.m., preventing motorists from taking one of the South Shore on-ramps.

The protest ended around 7 p.m., Peacekeepers said.

The protest was in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux, who have been holding a series of protests in recent months against the Dakota Access pipeline in southern North Dakota.

Riot police broke up a protest camp there on Thursday, drawing condemnation from Indigenous groups across the U.S. and Canada.

  1. What kinds of condemnations and from who? Because it’s not the ‘right kind” of protest?

  2. How can citizens get involved to support

  3. Good for them I hope this will bring some ATTENTION to this! It is terrible how those people ar being treated!
