PICTON: Hundreds Protest Police Violence in Silence as Sir John A ‘Holds Court’

There was in incredible turnout to protest police violence. The pictures speak for themselves.

The irony, of course, is that the statue of Sir John A. Macdonald “Holding Court” is still displayed steps away in front of the Picton Library with no explanation of his role as the architect of Indigenous genocide, his role as instigator of the political murder of Metis leader, Louis Riel, and the architect of the theft of Indigenous resources enforced by a miltarized police.   Nation-building for Macdonald ment the development of a Constitution for white male Christians; a constitution that embeds cultural genocide for First Nations.
