O.P.P. Set Sights on Mohawk Spokesman


(Wednesday,May 2,2007) Tyendinaga Mohawk Shawn Brant is set to appear in a Napanee Bail Court on Thursday, May 3rd at 2:00 PM on charges stemming from the closure of the CN Main Line 2 weeks ago.

The OPP issued a warrant for his arrest almost immediately following the April 21st CN closure.

Brant, along with his lawyer Peter Rosenthal, will attend the Napanee OPP station at 10:00AM on Thursday to formally accept the charges filed by the OPP.

According to spokesman Jason Maracle, “Targeting one of our speakers is an old tactic. If one person goes down another takes their place. If someone goes down on the battlefield, no one should expect the battle to stop.”
