Tyendinaga Mohawks plan to target Highway 401, the town of Deseronto or the CN Rail Line – again – on Friday’s national aboriginal day of action, says a local Mohawk protester.Shawn Brant, the spokesman for a group that has occupied the Thurlow Aggregates quarry on Deseronto Road since March, said there will be activity, likely involving “one of the targets we identified back on April 22,” he said. Those targets are Highway 401, the railway and the town of Deseronto.

The day of action happens three days after a preliminary hearing date was set for Brant in Napanee court on charges of mischief, disobeying a court order and breach of recognizance in connection with the April CN blockade. Brant is out on bail on the condition he not participate in any unlawful protests or block any thoroughfares on or off Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.Brant said in an interview Tuesday that if he breaks his bail, “that has to speak to our commitment of the day.”
