SUPPORT JAILED LAND DEFENDERS – SOLIDARITY W/ MI’KMAQ WARRIORS:

Mi’kmaq Warriors who were jailed after the brutal raid by RCMP at the #MikmaqBlockade near #Elsipogtog on Thurs Oct 17th, 2013 faced continued abuse within the prison system. 4 warriors remain in jail, 2 have been granted bail. Upon detention, Mi’kmaq Warriors endured physical assault on behalf of Correctional staff. Call the Ombudsman, file a complaint and demand:

  • Access to the phone, including to legal representation
  • Access to blankets, bedding
  • Access to basic hygienic needs, such as toilet paper , toothpaste, toothbrushes, showers
  • Adequate food provisions
  • End use of solitary confinement

The remaining Warriors behind bars are: Aaron Francis, James Pictou, Coady Stevens and Germain Breault. File a complaint with the Provincial Ombudsman and demand justice for the those Warriors behind bars as all of the above demands had been denied to and experienced by the Warriors who were just released.

Tell the Ombudsman that Land Defenders must be treated with respect and basic human dignity.
