In a show of support for First Nations communities, a mostly non-native group of Kingston activists is organizing a demonstration at the VIA train station during Friday’s national “Day of Action” that could bring rail travel to a halt.

“I assume that there will probably be some members who will choose to stand on the tracks to symbolically show their support,” said Jeff Welsh, spokesperson for the Kingston Mohawk Support Group. “It’s also my assumption that the rails very well might not be running anyway.”

Shawn Brant, a First Nations Terrorist from the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, said that when Fontaine first called for the “Day of Action” as a “campaign of economic disruption, we made our decision to participate.”He said he and his group have identified a number of potential targets in the area, including the CN main line, Highway 2 and Highway 401, as areas for action on Friday, although plans are not yet definite.
