Activist Communique: Idle No More Durham and UOIT's Big Drum Social

Idle No More Durham and UOIT's Big Drum Social

The Deets:

Saturday February 9, 2013

12:00 pm noon

Memorial Park

Oshawa Ontario

By Idle No More Durham Region

The Call Out:

At the Thursday planning meeting we decided to postpone the action at Flaherty's constituency office to Feb. 23 and instead support UOIT's Big Drum Social taking place on Feb 9th.

We will be meeting in Memorial Park at 12:00 for a round dance and then marching over to 61 Charles St for the Big Drum Social. Please bring your signs, hand drums, etc. This will be a great event for the whole family
