Activist Communique: Idle No More – San Francisco and Bay Area Round Dance

Idle No More – San Francisco and Bay Are Round Dance


The Deets:

Saturday December 22, 2012

12:00 pm noon PST

Consulate General of Cana

580 California Street,

San Francisco, CA


 The Call Out:

We want to support the First Nation Grandfather's, Grandmother's Mothers, Fathers, Sisters & Brothers in Canada who are being lied to and treated unfairly and are currently making noise by protesting against the Canadian government on the unrighteous law breaking Bill C-45!

Natives from all across the globe, including the South Pacific are expressing their support for the people standing up for first nation rights and for the future of indigenous communities everywhere!

This is only a small step for the fight, but we want to gather all bay area Natives to come out and make noise, Sing, Dance and Holler out loud to make the public aware of what the Canadian government is doing to the indigenous people of Canada! The News is not covering spreading the concern or awareness about this! so its up to us!

Bring your Hand Drums, Your Voices, Your Dancing Feet and Your Native Pride to stand up for native rights! *Fistintheair*

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
