The Canadian government continues to hack away at Indigenous rights. In response, Indigenous people around the world have raised their voices in opposition to the Harper government’s program of theft and assimilation.
The Harbinger provides an update on Idle No More:
The second wave of Idle No More protests swept across Canada on Friday December 21, with support events held across the U.S. and as far away as Europe and New Zealand, less than two weeks after the movement burst onto the political scene on December 10.
Indigenous activists used social media websites to organize round dances, highway blockades, protests and ceremonies from east to west of the country, as Attawapiskat First Nation Chief Theresa Spence entered her 10th day of a hunger strike that she has vowed to see through to the end.
