Native Warriors Claim Responsibility for taking Olympic Flag

March 7th, 2007

Coast Salish Territory [Vancouver, Canada]

In the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 6th, 2007, we removed the Olympic Flag from its flag-pole at Vancouver City Hall. We pried open the access panel on the pole with a crowbar, using a bolt-cutter, cut the metal cable/halyard inside, causing the flag to fall to the ground.

We claim this action in honor of Harriet Nahanee, our elder-warrior, who was given a death sentence by the BC courts for her courageous stand in defending Mother Earth.

We stand in solidarity with those fighting against the destruction caused by the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

No Olympics on Stolen Land!

Native Warrior Society

All I can say is: Our children
must know that some collaborated, and other resisted.
No Olympics on Stolen Land!

Note: This was published by the "Native Warrior Society", sent to major Vancouver media outlets, and organizations in Vancouver. I only received the email from a forward. This was not published by me, nor do they have any connection to "Liberated Yet?" aside from me posting it here in this blog post.
