This important short update about the situation at Sharbot Lake comes from Janie Jamieson. Please read and send in some of the much-needed supplies:
Yesterday @ Sharbot Lake
July 24, 2007
Just a quick update on the uranium mine at Sharbot Lake. Yesterday CANADA and FRONTENAC VENTURES (mining company) upped the ante in this land repatriation.
After the rejection of a financial offer last week by Frontenac, the Algonquins were slapped with a million dollar lawsuit yesterday. Forthcoming at any time is still the injunction to have them removed. After that it’s just a matter of time before the OPP have to “uphold their rule of law” and enforce the injunction. Meaning another Kanonhstaton April 20, 2006 or another OPP raid.
The OPP maintain a consistent presence at the Robertsville Mine. They know how isolated this territory is and how many people are there, etc. Their surveillance never ends.
Please send in whatever you can as soon as possible: water, gas, food, disposable cameras, socks, bug spray, candles, eating utensils, any type of camping supplies. Say prayers, burn tobacco whatever you need to do to help with their well being and protection.
