The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke says it doesn’t recognize a Quebec court issued injunction against land defenders blocking Canadian Pacific (CP) owned railways that pass through its territory.

“It is truly unfortunate that CP is taking this rash course of action, which will only add to the problems at hand,” said Grand Chief Joseph Tokwiro Norton in a press release sent Tuesday evening.

The press release also says that their local police, the Kahnawake Peacekeepers, are the only policing agency with jurisdiction in Kahnawake who can enforce the injunction against the activists who have been blocking the train tracks for over two weeks.

“No one here will do Trudeau’s dirty work,” added Norton. “Our people have been peacefully protesting on our own Territory.”
