The anti-Indigenous settler blowback to movement can be boiled down to these wise words: Chief Woos, Grizzly House, Wet'suwet'en Nation: "Remember, Inconvenience is not the same as Injustice."

Idea that "protestors" are disrupting lives of "everyday" working Canadians wrongly assumes those supporting are not workers & are not facing disruptions in own lives. "Everyday" people do stand for coz disruptions are necesary to disrupt colonialism

1. "A Twitter Play in 9 Acts" For those who can't figure out this the elected/hereditary issue: Your rich neighbor wants to build a walking trail through your property, but they know you love your yard, so instead of asking you, they approach your basement tenants.

I'm trained in law. There is no 'rule of law'. There are overlapping bodies of law. Laws are constantly changing. People with power ink laws. Resistance helps change unjust laws. Indigenous blockades are also legal orders.

FYI CN was planning to lay off workers well before railroad blockades. Making this announcement now was a strategy to villainize demonstrators. Corporate interests undermining Indigenous sovereignty also don't give a crap about workers.

THREAD - The Nation is just that - a nation. It has leaders who oversee territories - house chiefs. It has advisors - wing chiefs. It has citizens - members. It has leaders who oversee municipalities - band chiefs. It has separate jurisdictions and separate leaders.

Canadian Media: preface your comments about today's CN temporary layoffs with the fact that those layoffs were scheduled in late 2019. Facts matter.

Canada always sends in brute force to get what it wants. You can't have reconciliation or productive dialogue at gun point. You can't negotiate with armed RCMP or OPP. committed same violence as every other PM - massive breach of human rights - again.
