Chamberlain, SD, Sep. 20 (UPI) -- A spokesman for a group of North American Indians threatened re-enactors following Lewis and Clark explorations with violence. "We didn't bring our bows and arrows today, But if you continue, we will harass you. We will bring our bows and arrows."

Stateless and Exhausted
Refugees in Montreal face the endurance test of Immigration Canada By
In the streets of Montreal this past Saturday, September 18th, Palestinian
refugees and their supporters held a demonstration under the banner
"Stateless and Deported". Approximately 1000 gathered on Saint Catherine
street to put an end to their deportation back to refugee camps throughout
the Middle East. Through the sunshine and autumn air, a steady chant
could be heard - "Nous sommes fatigués! Donnez nous nos papiers!" This
chant ("we are tired! give us our papers!") speaks volumes of the refugee
experience in Canada.
An interesting and provocative article addressing issues of free speech and fascism from an anarchist perspective; originally posted to http://www.infoshop.org. The author lives in the U.S. so there are a lot of references to American politics and history; nonetheless, this is an intelligent and thoughtful article for all anti-fascists.
A planned $285M B.C. ski resort expansion has divided the native community and sparked a bitter land claim battle
A few weeks ago, I made a post regarding an appeal for the release of humanitarian workers allegedly kidnapped by the resistance in Iraq (see http://resist.ca/story/2004/9/10/13324/6598). The article below, by Naomi Klein and Jeremy Scahill, raise the possibility that the kidnapping may have been a type of "counter-intelligence" operation by the Iraqi puppet government and/or the U.S. and cite evidence asking "Who benefits from the [alleged] kidnapping of an Iraqi and two foreign aid workers by anti-occupation resistance forces?"
YELLOWKNIFE - The Deh Cho First Nations have launched a second attempt to stop the review of the proposed Mackenzie Valley gas pipeline.

ROUND VALLEY RESERVATION, Calif. - It is known, to those who know it at
all, as California's Trail of Tears.
In 1863, U.S. soldiers rounded up Indian tribes across Northern California
at Chico Landing in Butte County. Then they marched them across the
sweltering Sacramento Valley, over the rugged North Coast mountains, to
what was known then as the Nome Cult Reservation.
Of 461 Indians who set out under guard, only 277 completed the 100-mile,
14-day trek. Many were abandoned, too sick to continue. Some escaped.
Others were killed. For decades, some descendants tried their best to
forget. These days, they make a point of remembering.

This is a heads up from Infoshop News to our many
readers who own bicycles. News has been circulating today through the bike enthusiast blogs and bulletin boards about the discovery that certain kinds of bicycle U-Locks can be opened using a ball point pen. Evidently the companies that manufacture bike locks have known about this problem since the early 1990s and have done little to address this problem.

he was accused of being with three other men and throwing a rock at a security guard at the construction site of the Red Hill Valley Expressway which he had been protesting.

It took Hamilton police two-and-a-half weeks to even investigate his alibi, despite receiving information about it the day after Jonathan
