FIRST NATIONS TO HOLD NATIONWIDE RALLIES MONDAYFirst Nations To Rally to Express Opposition
To The Harper Government’s Attacks on Aboriginal Rights
Monday, Dec. 10, 2012 (Edmonton)
Under what is being called a National Day of Action and Solidarity, First Nations and their supporters have organized more than 13 nation-wide rallies for Monday (December 10) to express opposition the legislation the Harper Government has put forward in Bill C-45 and other bills.
The movement, under the banner “Idle No More” (#IdleNoMore) emerged within the grassroots less than four weeks ago in Saskatchewan. It began as an effort to educate First Nations people on the multitude of legislation being put forward by the Harper government that they feel is a direct attack on the rights of First Nations. The organizers Sylvia McAdam, Jess Gordon, Nina Wilson and Sheelah Mclean began by organizing “teach-ins” to inform people.
