THE PEOPLE OF KAHNAWAKE MOHAWK TERRITORY BLOCK HIGHWAYS IN
PROTEST MARCH IN SUPPORT OF ABORIGINAL STANDOFFS IN IPPERWASH
ONTARIO AND GUSTAFSEN LAKE, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

   MNNS, Kahnawake, M.T. September 9, 1995.  As a result of this march
the Surete du Quebec closed all access into Kahnawake, including the
Mercier Bridge, for several hours.  Kahnawake is located on the south
shore across the St. Lawrence River from Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

   The Mohawk Nation support thier brothers and sisters of the Pottawatoml =
and
Shuswap nations who are in a standoff over their land claims and ask all
native and non- native to do the same.

   The men of the Mohawk Nation issued a postion on September 7th that
they would not idly stand by while the Canadian police and military
forces contine to brutalize the Aboriginal people.

   It was further stated that any further violence commited against any
Aboriginal Nation will be answered in kind; those directly or indirectly
responsible for the murder of their brother will be identified and held
accountable for their actions; and those responsible for the beatings of
Aboriginal women and children at Ipperwash will also be identified and
held accountable for their actions.

   The Mohawk Nation supports their brothers and sisters.  The Mohawk
natins advocates the protection of human rights and democracy.  "It is
our responsibility based on the Great Law to use peaceful means to
resolve the conflict."
