Anti-racism group says deer cull protests at Short Hills are racist
NIAGARA FALLS — An anti-racism group is publicly condemning the yearly hunting protests on Haudenosaunee traditional territory — saying it is racist.
Niagara’s Anti-Racism Coalition posted an open letter Monday morning to their Facebook page saying opposition to the deer hunt at Short Hills Park is “supporting the worst parts of Canada’s racist legacy”.
The letter also says “Antagonizing a group of people because you believe that your group’s views are superior is the very definition of racism. We formally condemn the anti-Indigenous opposition to the hunt.”
The Deer Cull at the Short Hills park near Niagara Falls has been protested for years by animal rights activists taking aim at indigenous hunting rights at the park.
