According to media sources, the illegal blockade started by Shawn Brant of a bridge in Deseronto has been brought to an end by the OPP and Tyendinaga police. Reports say that some of the criminals fled when confronted by Police, and 13 were arrested for mischief.

According to the Belleville Intelligencer who shot some video at the scene, “native dissident Jerome Barnhart arrived around 8:30 this morning and chased media away from the scene.

“Clad in camouflage and wearing white sneakers, Barnhart barreled across Highway 49 shortly after 8:30 a.m. barking orders that all media “should get away from here right now.

“You need to leave right now, or else,” he said, his finger now pointing down the highway.

“The CBC is not allowed here and neither are you. Get the f—k out. And don’t be pulling off the road down there … we’re going to be watching you and where you go.”  A vehicle with individuals from the protest group followed the retreating reporter from the scene.”

Now that documents have been released detailing the testimony of Julian Fantino at an August 29 2007 court hearing for Shawn Brant, and transcripts of recorded phone calls between Fantino and Brant from the June 29, 2007 “day of action”, we are able to gain a rare glimpse into the mind of Ontario’s “top cop”.

We know that Julian is a bully when there’s a camera or microphone around to show off for, and we know that when dealing with anything remotely associated with CANACE, he is prone to making bizarre statements about violence and agenda’s that exist only in his head, but what’s he like when he’s dealing with a Native and thinks nobody is listening?

With the second Native “day of Action” just one week away, it appears that the 2008 installment is a failure before it ever got started.

From the time the June 29, 2007 event was announced until the day was done, we were all hard pressed to pick up a news paper without reading a quote from Phil Fontaine, Shawn Brant, or some other self proclaimed “activist” intent on breaking the law with the protection of the OPP.

CALEDONIA-A tension-filled native blockade on a highway overpass has ended peacefully.

“It’s fantastic,” said Haldimand Mayor Marie Trainer after the barricade on Highway 6 was taken down around 2 p.m. yesterday. “We’re pleased, glad that cooler heads prevailed.”

Her comments came a day after she had expressed fears that some members of her community might take the law into their own hands out of frustration.

No charges were laid after the five-day protest.

A Six Nations spokesman warns that supportive protest actions on a “grander scale” are coming, as a committed Iroquois Confederacy continues to stand together.

The comments come as Haldimand Mayor Marie Trainer says some residents are talking about taking the law into their own hands. Six Nations protesters are still blocking the Highway 6 bypass they closed Friday afternoon in support of protesters occupying a quarry near Deseronto, Ont.

They want the Ontario Provincial Police, who have blocked both entrances to the Caledonia bypass, to stand down in eastern Ontario before they remove the blockades.

“This shouldn’t be allowed,” Trainer said. “Enough is enough. Something has to happen. This nonsense can’t continue.”

Tensions were mounting last night as native protesters and members of the OPP tactical squad were in a standoff at a protest site in Deseronto.

This came just hours after about 10 people were arrested and two police officers were taken to hospital.

As of late last night the conflict had not been resolved at a scene which included lit fires in fields and vitriolic threats.

Among those arrested was Shawn Brant, who organized the blockade of the Montreal-Toronto CN rail corridor last April and June. Brant, who was arrested during a traffic stop yesterday afternoon, faces assault, weapons and drug charges, police said.

The Town of Deseronto went public with its frustration over the Culbertson Tract land claim Friday, issuing a sharply-worded press release.

The municipality is questioning Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte Chief R. Donald Maracle’s leadership in the wake of two recent protests staged on contested town land.

Yesterday provided some interesting insight into the logic used in the application of 2 tiered justice in Ontario. There is none.

3 protestors from Greenpeace were arrested yesterday for using civil disobedience to spread their message about coal fired hydro stations, and although their methods were over the line and they did deserve to be arrested, at the same time Terrorist Shawn Brant was freed on bail pending trial on 9 criminal charges.

The same Shawn Brant who voiced his intentions loudly and proudly this summer to target the infrastructure of Canada and the economy as a means to further his political agenda. “ I don’t give a rats ass if I create victims “ and “ Only when every home has suffered as we have suffered will I stop “ are among his many quotes.

Greenpeace delayed the delivery of a shipment of coal to the Nanticoke plant for part of a day, Shawn Brant shut down Canada’s largest railroad and highway, and made it clear he intended to do it again as many times as it takes for him to feel satisfied.

NAPANEE, Ont. — Shawn Brant has turned himself in to the Ontario Provincial Police a week after he led Tyendinaga Mohawk demonstrators to blockade railways and roads in eastern Ontario for the National Day of Action.

The lanky 43-year-old arrived at the Napanee OPP station at 10 a.m. on Thursday, as he had promised to do on the weekend. He told waiting media that he was a man of honour, from a people of honour. (Edit: a people of honor perhaps, but a man of honor? please)

Half an hour earlier, a line of cars ferrying Mr. Brant, his lawyer, his wife and supporters, left the quarry that Mohawk protesters have been occupying since March.

The man who led last week’s aboriginal blockades of Highway 2 and the CN rail line says he’ll turn himself in to authorities tomorrow and is frustrated that police approached him earlier than that.On Friday, Shawn Brant and a group of Mohawks organized the blockades in defiance of many native leaders’ admonitions. That same morning, the OPP issued an arrest warrant for him on a charge of mischief and breach of prior bail conditions.

During the weekend, Brant’s lawyer, Peter Rosenthal, entered negotiations with the Napanee detachment of the OPP for Brant’s surrender. Rosenthal has represented Brant in the past and will be his lawyer in the coming proceedings.

Brant said that despite his promise to appear for a bail hearing tomorrow, local OPP officers tried to arrest him yesterday morning. “The OPP had blocked the road and, I believe, were attempting to try and do an intervention,” he said, adding that he maintained a full force of men.“They were telling me that I should get in the car and go with them and there was a warrant for me,” Brant said.

“I told them that that was not the arrangement and I thought they should wait.”

He said the officers abandoned their attempt, but that he was left frustrated with the situation.

Canadian National says it is examining its legal options after a local aboriginal protest prompted it to halt traffic last week.The company is “reviewing our legal options and determining what’s available to us,” said spokesman Frank Binder of the rail line blockade on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory during Friday’s national aboriginal day of action. The threat of a blockade stopped an estimated $103 million worth of freight and about 5,000 passenger trips.

“There have been attempts to find Mr. Brant and execute the warrant,” she said. Tyendinaga Mohawk police officers “have been looking for him.” (Edit: YEAH RIGHT! The media can find him anytime they want to, and he lives in a school bus in the illegally occupied quarry in Deseronto but they can’t find him?)

DESERONTO, Ont. (CP) – Mohawk demonstrator Shawn Brant says there will be someone to fill his shoes if he ends up in jail after turning himself in to police later this week.

Brant, who led blockades of roads and a railway in eastern Ontario during last week’s aboriginal day of action, declined Tuesday to name the man who will help lead the group of Mohawk protesters. Brant said he plans to turn himself over to Ontario Provincial Police in Napanee, Ont., on Thursday morning and then attend a bail hearing that afternoon. But it’s unlikely he’ll get out on bail.

Brant, who has previously done jail time for his militant protests, had already been out on bail on previous charges in connection with a 30-hour blockade of the CN rail line near Deseronto, Ont., on April 20.

A warrant has also been issued for Brant’s arrest on a charge of mischief, which carries a range of sentence from two to 10 years under the Criminal Code. Brant agreed to surrender to police last week.

“In our community, people are as proud and as happy as I’ve ever seen them in my life,” he said. Last Friday’s protest, which shut down Canada’s busiest highway for 11 hours and closed rail lines near Deseronto, was a “tremendous success,” he added.

Peterborough Examiner

While we spend millions of dollars having our military clean up the bloody nose the U.S.A. created in Afghanistan, citizens of Ontario are subject to what appears to be home grown terrorism by the self-declared Mohawk State.

Phil Fontaine, in appearance an articulate, thoughtful representative of the native cause, shows us in video the deplorable conditions on some of the native reserves. This is effective. Nothing gets Canadians to dig into their pockets more than guilt, pity and the sense of concern and decency.Shutting down major economic and transportation routes is economic terrorism. Most people are sympathetic to the cause but these actions have and will continue to damage the good work done by men like Mr. Fontaine.

Instead of spending money to clean up Afghanistan and help its government gain control of that country, our army should be at home helping the inept Harper government gain control here. If some citizens of Havelock decided to blockade Highway 7 because of an unfair provincial or federal policy, the OPP riot squad would be called out, the citizens would be gassed, pepper sprayed and bludgeoned into submission, arrested and ultimately prosecuted. Where does this relate to fairness for one and all?

As reported on the morning of June 29th, the OPP issued a warrant for the arrest of Terrorist Shawn Brant while he was blockading roads and railways.

I wrote that morning that it was a token warrant which they were failing to enforce. It has been 4 days now, and (suprise) The OPP have not arrested Shawn Brant. I predicted the warrant was issued so the OPP could say they were doing something (besides shutting down the 401) and now they are proving it.

On June 29th, Brant said he was going to turn himself in at midnight. The OPP failed to arrest him despite knowing exactly where he was all day and instead watched as he maintained illegal blockades. At midnight they clearly let him walk away and if asked they would either refuse to comment or say something about not wanting to “escalate the situation” or ” to avoid confrontation “.
