The Kanien’kehà:ka (Mohawks) of Tyendinaga and their supporters say police have given them until midnight Sunday to clear their railroad demonstration outside their territory or face arrest.

“At this point CN (Canadian National Railway) has made us aware, as the complainant, they’re willing to not have the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) investigate any criminal charges as long as everything from the site is cleared out by the end of today,” said an unnamed OPP officer in a video posted on Twitter.

Police said in the video that if the site isn’t cleared from the fence on the north side of the tracks to the south side by midnight, an investigation into everyone who had been at the protest from Feb. 8 would take place.

Kanenhariyo, also known as Seth LeFort, is interviewing the two officers and a member of the CN police.

One of his demands is that police put out a statement regarding vigilantism.
