The ongoing struggle against the 2010 Olympic games, instigated in 2003, is one of the major links between the defense of the earth and support for basic struggles for rights in BC. These Olympic games will accelerate the process of devastation.

The Olympics are but another facet of the capitalist, colonialist, patriarchal and imperialist war that is destroying the earth and our communities, especially indigenous communities.

This often obscured fact is very evident to us.

Corporate sponsors, the elite and mass media are united to promote the games, which are too often used to justify domination everywhere.

This is why we are mobilizing to stop them, just like we are mobilizing to put an end to exploitation everywhere.

La campagne des luttes contre les Olympiques de 2010 qui dure depuis 2003 et continue est en ce moment au BC un des principaux liens dans la continuité de la défense de la terre et du vivant en général. Ces Olympiques accélèrent tous les processus de dévastation.

Les Olympiques ne sont qu’un autre événement de la guerre capitaliste, colonialiste, patriarcale, impérialiste… qui ne cesse de détruire la terre, la majorité d’entre nous et particulièrement nos camarades indigènes.

Cette réalité pourtant si évidente nous est constamment cachée.

Des compagnies commanditaires des Olympiques aux médias de masse, les élites s’unissent pour promouvoir ces “jeux” qui ne sont qu’un important moment de la restructuration constante de la domination partout. C’est pourquoi nous nous mobilisons pour les arrêter comme nous le faisons pour mettre fin à ce monde d’exploitation généralisée.

Ever since the level of activity at the reclamation site at Caledonia diminished about a year ago, many non-native supporters have been unclear about how to build ongoing links in solidarity with the Six Nations struggle.

Unfortunately, while many non-native supporters were quite familiar with the reclamation, very few people in our community – including those who are more politically active – seem to know anything about the dozens of developments that have been blocked in Brantford, or how to support those people facing legal charges from their activity in defending Six Nations land and the environment that we all share.

The event will be used as a way to raise awareness and funds for the work by the Men’s Fire to halt development on the Haldimand tract and to support the legal costs of the more than 100 people who have been criminally charged for defending their land rights.
