Struggle for the Land: Racism, Class, and Solidarity in the Six Nations Land Reclamation

Douglas Creek Estates

As the Community Friends suggest, the days when the Canadian government or non-Native vigilantes could drive First Nations people off their land must come to an end.

Let it first be said that there is nothing shocking or confusing about the present state of the world generally or the violent resurgence of antisemitism specifically. The repeated attacks on the Jewish people in France, Poland, Germany, the United States and elsewhere mirror the period of discriminatory laws and pogroms that swept through Europe in the years leading up to the death camps.

The agricultural backgrounds of many of the emigrants and the conflicts of the English countryside – including but not limited to the Swing Riots of 1830/31 – played a role in structuring the gang-men’s response to their situation.
