Alanis Obomsawin’s award winning documentary about the 1990 Oka Crisis, featuring in depth footage of the 78 day standoff involving Mohawks, Police & Military, as well as background to the standoff, including treaties, agreements, and the history of land appropriation.

The screening of this documentary follows last term’s screening of Sewatokwa-tshera’t: The Dish With One Spoon, by Dr Dawn Martin-Hill, regarding Six Nations land reclamation at Kanonhstaton/Caledonia.

In our discussion we will consider colonialism, land expropriation, blacklash, racism, and the role of the police and military in Indigenous land occupations, as well as the roles and reactions of government officials and non-Native neighbouring communities, paying attention to the continuity and consistency with recent, ongoing, and contemporary struggles for indigenous land and sovereignty.

It is my hope that by recognizing these connections we can better understand contemporary struggles and how to move forward, rooted in a critical understanding of colonial histories and ongoing injustices.

This film screening is brought to you by Hamiton FreeSkool’s Practical Solidarity, and the Hamilton Centre for Teaching Peace as part of Edu-Macation Mondays.

At the Edge of the World chronicles the Sea Shepherd Antarctic Campaign against a Japanese whaling fleet. The international volunteer crew, under-trained and under-equipped, develop a combination of bizarre and brilliant tactics with which to stop the whalers.

But first they must find the Japanese ships, a far more difficult challenge than ever imagined - long-time activist Paul Watson and first-time captain Alex Cornelissen employ an array of strategies in the hopes of finding an elusive adversary in the vast expanse of the Ross Sea.

With one ship (the Farley Mowat) too slow to chase down the whaling fleet, with their second ship (the Robert Hunter) unsuited for Antarctic ice conditions and with no country supporting their efforts to enforce international law, the situation becomes increasingly desperate.

Against all odds, however, a real-life pirate tale unfolds - a modern-day "David vs. Goliath" adventure.

As Hamilton's downtown population increases, and young professionals seek walkable neighbourhoods, our city is exploring active transportation options like bike share, pedestrian parks, and smart and safe streets for everyone.

Building off the success of the white flag initiative, the Good Neighbour Campaign has been working to continue to provide Hamiltonians with the tools and skills needed to monitor air quality within their neighbourhoods. Recognizing that our next method needed to be simple, easy to interpret, precise, robust, and affordable, we decided to utilize the methodology of George Sorger, a McMaster professor who has studied the relationship of tree lichen to air quality (specifically S02 and N02, good indicators of airborne pollution).
