Toronto: Six Nations Benefit Concert, Dec. 1st

present:

SIX NATIONS BENEFIT CONCERT
featuring Bob Wiseman!

Friday December 1st - 8pm
NOW Lounge
189 Church St.
$12 door
$10 door with a camp donation (see website for more
details)

Bob Wiseman, and various singer-songwriters from Songwriters Unite, playing great music to raise funds for the Six Nations reclamation camp in Caledonia.

- background -

Since February 28, 2006, the Six Nations have maintained a camp at Kanenhstaton, in Caledonia, where developers had begun building on their traditional land. This land was given to Six Nations in the Haldimand Proclamation of 1784 and was never sold.

Negotiations with Fed and Prov representatives are ongoing (and slow). Until full control over the land is given back to Six Nations, they have vowed to stay on the site. Winter is coming, and the costs to run the camp increase.

What's happening in Caledonia is much more than just a local issue. It's an issue of human rights. It's about trying to put a stop to the historical wrongs perpetrated by our past Canadian governments. It's about people standing up, people who have been the victim of too much violence, for too long. It's about reconciling with one of the many Nations in Canada, so that we may all, native and non-native, move into the future together in peace.

Support the cause, hear some great music, and enjoy a great night out!
