#15 BLS- Arrested While Waiting for Cannon to Obey the Law

Two Algonquins, one of whom was a minor, and four supporters spent the evening in jail and now face three charges: obstruction of a police officer, trespassing, and mischief.

"We told them we would stop disobeying the law if Cannon did so as well. It's a small act of civil disobedience to draw attention to a far greater crime," said Martin Lukacs, a member of the Barriere Lake Solidarity Collective.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
