#Hamilton, #Ontario: John A MacDonald Statue Painted Red

Hamilton. ON. Early in the morning on November 9th, a few of us tread into the night to pay visit to Sir John A Macdonald in Gore park downtown Hamilton. With a loaded fire extinguisher, we painted him red, symbolizing his blood-soaked legacy. We did this in solidarity with the land defenders out 1492 Landback Lane, our neighbors from Six Nations, who are facing intense police violence in their attempt to save their land from another cheap and hollow suburban development.

1492 #Landback Lane Solidarity Demo in #Hamilton, #Ontario! – Reportback
