Abstract: Doug George, the editor of the Native newspaper Akwesasne Notes, has been cleared of a charge of second-degree murder. George was charged after a confrontation between pro- and anti-gambling groups on the Akwesasne reserve which left two men dead. George said that he suspects the charge may have been politically motivated. "For years I have been critical of the federal and provincial governments and the provincial police for their failure to work with us to stop gun-running and gambling," said George. "But they have refused to work with us, they have abandoned us."
