On guard for native rights

Today, our own Naomi Klein writes on the Guardian website about Shawn Brant and the Mohawks who blockaded the Kingston/Toronto CN line two weeks ago. In an act that seems designed to suppress the growing militancy of native groups, the OPP arrested Brant despite an agreement between police and demonstrators that gave the latter immunity if they ended their blockade peacefully. Assembly of First Nations National Chief Phil Fontaine should work on a strategy to counter such tactics during the national day of action, proposed for June 29 of this year.
