On Thursday January 3, following the removal of the Aamjiwnaang blockade near Sarnia, Ontario we used copper wire to block train traffic in both directions on the CN mainline through the suburbs north of Toronto. Read below for directions on how to reproduce this action yourself.
We were inspired to act by the numerious blockades of freight traffic, roads, highways and border crossings across so called canada by indigenous warriors and rebels, which has been one of the greatest demonstrations of unity in a decade. These actions have been undertaken by so many different communities and nations inspiring a new generation to join in struggles for land and autonomy.
The Assembly of First Nations chiefs, Theresa Spence and government hacks have all tried to put the reins on these actions of dispersed sabotage and economic disruption but we are inspired by the fact that these actions continue to spread and grow, demonstrating these apparent leaders lack of control.
These actions are easy and reproducible. Railways cross most cities and reserves and move money for the rich.
Solidarity with the rebels disrupting capital.
Choose a section of railway tracks with a degree of privacy. Using no less than 12 feet of large gauge copper wire (plastic casing removed), wrap each end of the wire around the two railway ties and back onto themselves, ensuring as much contact with the railway tie as possible. As soon as both ends are securely in place, the circuit will be complete and the railway traffic signals in the area will signal that there is a barrier on the tracks. Leave promptly.
