Canada Breaks Off Negotiations - Warrior Societies Brace for Attack

On April 18th, 2006, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Council at Grand River announced that the Governments of Canada and Ontario have pulled out of talks concerning the recent land repossession at Caledonia, ON.

With talks abruptly ending in this manner, it became apparent that the Government of Canada was not interested in seeking a peaceful resolve to this issue and have elected a violent imposition of their will.

At approximately 4:30am, the Ontario Provincial Police launched a violent attack upon occupants of the repossessed Haudenosaunee territory at Caledonia. The occupants there were unarmed and peaceful. Upon learning of this violent attack, the Rotisken'rakéhte of Kahnawake mobilized to discuss security measures to prevent any further violence in Caledonia and Grand River.
