Confederacy calls for National Day of Peaceful
Protest_ (http://www.theturtleislandnews.com/s...be/index2.html)

The Six Nations Haudenosaunne Confederacy has called for a "national" day
of peaceful protests to highlight "intrusions onto Six Nations lands."
Confederacy council decided Saturday to call for the protest after a group of women
told them the town of Caledonia is not only developing lands claimed by Six
Nations, without the community´s approval, but plans to continue its
expansion onto Six Nations lands. Janie Jamieson, one of the women who protested the
expansion of a housing development at Highway 6 and Sixth Line to mark the
anniversary of the Haldimand Deed last week, told Confederacy council, "this isn
´t all Caledonia is doing." Dawn Smith, another protester told Confederacy
Chiefs at Saturday´s meeting, developers plan to build a 250 house
subdivision on lands along the Highway Six cutoff that are "Six Nations lands. The
developer said the lands are under Crown patent and they plan to build there."

_Six Nations says no to $400,000 for water; St. Amand expects answer soon_

Six Nations Band Council will say thanks but no thanks to a federal
government offer of $400,000 to buy bottled water for a limited number of Six Nations
residents. Band Council made the decision Monday night to send a letter to
Indian and Northern Affairs refusing the offer of $400,000 to buy bottled
water after senior administrative officer Glenn Forest explained band staff had
reviewed INAC´s offer and found it did not meet even Six Nations immediate
needs. "The Water Crisis report called for an immediate injection of $6 million
. INAC agreed to $400,000." And he said they put strings on the money. "They
want a cost sharing arrangement that is unfair. We have no discretionary
funds to involve ourselves in any kind of cost share." He told council it was
time to take off the gloves. "We recommend advocacy and lobbying. Clean water
is a basic necessity of life that INAC is not providing." Band Council agreed
to send off a letter refusing
the $400,000. _More_

Rembrance Day


In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the
poppies blow
Between the crosses,
row on row,
That mark our place;
and in the sky
The larks, still bravely
singing,
fly scarce heard amid
the guns below.
We are the Dead.
Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn,
saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved,
and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel
with the foe:
To you from failing
hands we throw
The torch; be yours
to hold it high.
If ye break faith with
us who die
We shall not sleep,
though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
By John McCrae
(Taken from
"Welcome to Flanders Fields",
by Daniel G. Dancocks, McClelland
& Stewart (Toronto, Canada), 1988)
