I woke up this morning to find I got a message from Jayson Fleury- you may remember him from my story about Occupy Toronto’s ‘sacred’ fire. If you’ve been around activist circles in Toronto or Vancouver, chances are you’ve run across this guy.
Have a look at his letter, and my response below. This could be interesting…
Thanks for writing! Though your letter is full of assumptions and incorrect allegations, I do appreciate your attempt…
First, unlike yourself, I have no bosses. I work independently. You should try working for yourself sometime (other than when scamming helpless sick women), you may find it to be a refreshing change from taking your marching orders from Harsha Walia!
Jayson, if anyone has been busy causing division, I’d propose that you are in Division 1. I’ve never seen an incident where you weren’t out there cop-baiting, and causing a division between the police and the activist community. Do you realize how dangerous this is to the people around you?
You mention you have a problem with our technology. If so, can I ask what you are doing using a computer to communicate with me? How about those eyeglasses you are wearing? And, how do you travel across the country so often? Do you use cars, buses and/or planes? If you believe what you are saying, shouldn’t you be walking or on horseback?
Turtle Island is an Iroquois and an Anishnaabe name- by using it, are you saying that they should have domain over the country? How about the other nations? How about those who were born here? What about Harsha?
While we’re talking about other nations, let me ask you a question? What gives you the right to speak on their behalf? I’m sure many of them don’t want to be associated with you and your tactics Jayson. For example, look at this message a member of the Musqueam posted on the Occupy Vancouver Facebook page- it was clearly pointed at the Harsha Walia nation, and it sure seems like they disagree with your tactics.
In this video (where you appear a few times), the music says “take back the land, kill the white man.” And, in your message to me you say “as soon as we take back the land.” I’ve spoken with dozens of people in indigenous communities who have said just the opposite- that they don’t want to take people’s land away from them. Do you disagree with them? If so, how do you propose to take it back, and where should the people residing on it now be expected to go?
Thanks for writing Jayson, we’re all genuinely interested to hear what you have to say on these issues. I look forward to your response…
