Native Occupation in Hagersville

As of today at the old Norcliffe School which is being removed to make way for a new apartment/condo complex, approx. 3 dozen masked Native people have taken over the development. They are using their cars to block the road into the development.

About 7 OPP cars are at location but OPP are doing what OPP always do - ensure that Native Occupations meet with no opposition. According to witnesses, officers are standing between the natives and the construction workers and they have made no effort to remove the natives.

9:20 am from resident - "I just came from Hagersville after standing and watching as more and more natives fill the site, and the OPP have not set foot across the entrance to remove anyone. As usual, when you speak to the OPP, they say very little. When native vehicles attempt to enter the main entrance at hwy#6, they are denied access by the OPP, but then simply drive around the back of the construction site and enter from there. They look like they are settling in for a long haul, as the flags get put up and the fires begin to burn. Welcome to Hagerdoniawash!"

9:52 am from resident - "I was on my way to work this morning, driving down Main St. in Hagersville (Highway 6). I noticed a number of Ontario Peacekeeper cars parked on the side of the road. Then I saw that a handful of natives had stopped construction on a housing development next to the Norcliffe Retirement home. Almas construction is currently putting in sewers there. There was a small bonfire and the Unity flag. There were about a dozen OPP standing in a line on the sidewalk observing."
