Native tribe against moon colonization gives blessing to anti-Israel activists to use ‘their’ land

‘Grants full right’ to those at universities protesting ‘massacred’ Palestinians

A Native American tribe in Canada that wants human beings banned from the moon has given its blessing to anti-Israel activists at McGill University and other colleges.

According to a letter from the Kahnawake Nation dated April 28 (or “five days after the 4th full moon”) in which allegedly oppressive proper nouns are not capitalized, “Wolf Clan representative” Stuart Myiow says Europeans are continuing their “colonial genocidal wars” on Native territory “and abroad, including Palestine.”

“Through britain’s worldwide colonial infrastructure, ‘the indian act’ policy was exported to South-Africa, renaming it ‘apartheid,’ committing the same genocide upon the Original Peoples of that territory,” Myiow writes.

South Africa’s apartheid subsequently was “exported to israel, to genocide upon the Palestinian people” under the auspices of the United Nations.

As such, Myiow (pictured) notes his people are “happy to see” students on myriad campuses protesting in “solidarity with massacred Palestinian children, women and men.” In accordance with the Two Row Wampum Peace Treaty, the Kahnawake “grants full right” to campus activists to be on its lands.

“On behalf of all the children that the canadian/american/european/israeli colonizers kidnapped, raped, terrorized and murdered around the world,” the letter concludes, Myiow asks everyone to “stand in solidarity with the Palestinian People.”

He advises all “not [to] engage in any hostile action.”

The Kahnawake Nation Council website has an entire section devoted to keeping the moon — Earth’s lone satellite — free from human occupation.

“THE UNITED NATIONS MUST RECOGNIZE THE MOON AS A WORLD HERITAGE SITE,” the section declares, and is followed by a bullet-point list of various countries’ plans for future lunar development along with Kahnawake responses and actions.

For example, in 2012 the council delivered an “official document” to the “controlling bodies of the International Space Station” warning them to “stop the plans for the development, militarization and commercialization of the Moon.”

The Kahnawake also alleged the U.S. broke “world law” by enacting the Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act in 2015 which granted “full clemency for a seven-year period to any U.S. corporations conducting business in space or on the Moon.”

In 2016, council representatives gave a letter to European Space Agency Director Johann Dietrich Woerner which declared the continent’s nations “do not have any rights to colonize the Moon and that the Moon must be declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO.”

The following year, they asked the mayor of Quebec for his support in defending their “Grandmother Moon.”
