The natives started tire fires and tried to burn down a bridge over land disputes in Caledonia today. Quite the scene. They're thinking of bringing in the military to remove them. Apparently they're none too happy with the housing developments currently going up so they've been holed up in the suburbs for the past few months protesting. Though they never mentioned anything in the past 100 years that land was being farmed... ¬_¬

And tire fires? Isn't the whole native religion based around respecting mother earth? How do tire fires fit into this?

Anyways. They've completely shut down traffic going in and out of Caledonia and they've shut down all the schools for tomorrow. The natives are calling the government terrorists and everyone else is pissed off the government hasn't removed the protestors earlier. So things are in quite a tangle around here...
