#IdleNoMore Global Day of Action: #Denendeh #J11 Yellowknife, Northwest Territories videos

Global #J11 Day of Action rally in Somba K’e, Denendeh

Two videos of the Global Day of Action rally in downtown Somba K’e (Yellowknife) on the Akaitcho territory of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation in Denendeh (Northwest Territories) with a set of still photos.

Lawrence Nayally one of the event's organizers posted the following to the event's Facebook page about an hour before the rally started ...

"… We are rallying downtown YK @ 12:00pm. Tents will be set-up for lunch to distribute food prepared by community members and another for info-sheets, discussion, etc. … Its an historical event taking shape all across this country, so why not be apart of it. Together united, 8th Fire Ignited! …"

Here's the link to the second video that does not seem to want to appear in a window below.

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.
