BELLEVILLE, Ont. - Thirteen people are facing charges for protests last week on the Tyendinaga Mohawk reserve, east of Belleville.

Police have laid a total of 27 charges against 11 adults and two youths for protests at the Buildall quarry on Oct. 27 and another demonstration two days later at the proposed site of a new police station.

In the Oct. 29 demonstration, protesters managed to block trucks carrying the modular building that was supposed to serve as the reserve's new police station.

Some of the reserve's residents are upset that the $1.9 million set aside for the station isn't being used for other projects, such as housing and water improvements.

Charges were also laid against another three people for a protest at the quarry in September.

Tyendinaga police say they expect to make more arrests over the next few days.
