Nine land defenders and their allies are scheduled to appear in criminal court today.
CAYUGA – Nine Onkwehon:we land stewards and ally supporters of the 1492 Land back lane reclamation site located in Caledonia, Ontario, will be making their first appearance in Ontario Criminal Court today. According to a FB post made by the 1492 Windsor Law coalition, supporters watching from home are encouraged to tune in via Zoom.
For those who are not familiar with these court proceedings, the first appearance in an Ontario courtroom typically involves obtaining the disclosure of the police allegations against you. This involves the exchange of information in preparation for legal proceedings. According to the Ontario Legal aid site, “In many cases, find out what the Crown Attorney would recommend to the judge in terms of a sentence if you choose to plead guilty.”
Does Land reclamation belong in a Criminal court?
RPM reached out for a comment from Skyler Williams, who is scheduled to make his first appearance today in the Cayuga provincial court via zoom.
