ITCCS Condemns RCMP raids on sovereign Mohawk territory, Claims RCMP involvement in criminal drug trade across Canada
Today’s para-military assault by 500 Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers on sovereign Mohawk territory around Montreal was condemned by the international body investigating crimes against humanity in Canada.
The nine-nation International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS), based in London and Brussels, called for the immediate withdrawal of “foreign occupation forces” from Mohawk territory and for “an end to the phony war on drugs that is concealing the Canadian government’s own apparent complicity in these crimes.”
At least forty Mohawk citizens have been arrested by the RCMP today on sovereign native land, without warrant or warning, merely for suspected marijuana possession.
Speaking from London, England, an ITCCS spokesman said,
“In our archives are sworn eyewitness statements from aboriginal people in Canada describing the regular involvement of RCMP officers in the transport and protection of offshore shipments of cocaine and heroin at Port Renfrew and Waglisla, British Columbia, and at Cornwall, Ontario” said the spokesman.
“We believe that the ongoing murder of aboriginal people across Canada is connected to this involvement of an element of the RCMP in the drug trade, which operates through government-funded native chiefs on Indian reserves. Today’s assault on the sovereign Mohawks for simple marijuana possession is therefore not only questionable but highly suspect, considering the history of the Mohawks in defending their land and rights against the same forces now attacking them.”
The ITCCS is convening its investigation into Crimes against Humanity in Canada and other countries on September 15, 2011 in London, Brussels, and at least five Canadian cities.
The ITCCS has issued a Public Summons to Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper to appear before its inquiry to answer charges of complicity in genocide and obstructing justice. Harper has not replied to the Summons nor contested the charges made against him.
