Letter of Support – 1492 Land Back
In acknowledgement that Wilfrid Laurier University continues to operate on and thus profit from lands on the Haldimand Tract and as an expression of solidarity with and support for Indigenous land defenders at the 1492 Land Back Lane reclamation site on Six Nations territory outside of Caledonia, Ontario, the Wilfrid Laurier University Faculty Association (WLUFA) would like to make its members aware of the opportunity to sign a letter of support for this cause. This letter from members from members of the academic community and others to the Federal Indigenous Services Minister, the Federal Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations and the Ontario Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation, succinctly outlines the history of the struggle and encourages long-lasting resolution that undoes “layers of injustice and distrust” with solutions “that look down the road beyond the immediate interests of land developers and momentary governments to a seven-generation-long vision of the Dish-With-One-Spoon region…”
Please note that the letter is available for signature only up until 12pm on Friday 25 September.
