Canada is now following the same blueprint for Indigenous genocide that was designed by the United States and led to the torture, rape, disappearance and murder of masses of Indigenous Peoples in Central and South America.
In the 1970s and 1980s, following a counterinsurgency manual later made public, Latin leaders were trained by the School of the Americas in the United States. The reign of terror spanned decades and Indigenous women, children and elderly were murdered indiscriminately.
At the root of this unmitigated horror were the corporations, including the United Fruit Company, which became Chiquita Brands International. The Bush family earlier had controlling financial interests in the company. Recently, Chiquita admitted hiring rightwing paramilitary which killed thousands of human rights workers, union organizers and farmers in Colombia.
The probe has now led to Drummond Coal and paramilitary admissions that the coal company ships were used by the paramilitary to carry drugs to Europe. Coca-Cola has also been accused in court of hiring paramilitary to kill human rights activists and union organizers in South America.
With this trail of death, Canada is now revealing the same pattern. A draft counterinsurgency manual was exposed, naming Mohawks with international terrorists. Now, Canada announced new military training for Natives. Mohawks ask, "Are they training Natives to kill us?"
It is a simple story, drenched in the blood of Indigenous from the North Pole to the South Pole. Indigenous who stand up for their rights to their land, water and resources will be exterminated by the most powerful militaries in the world. Under the guise of the so-called war on terror, governments seek to sway the public by using misinformation and buy those who can be bought.
With the U.S. torture and secret prisons of the Bush administration only given a casual glance by most Americans, militaries and private security contractors have been given a green light to declare war on human rights activists, peace activists and Indigenous struggling to survive.
