Idle No More: Women and youth rising up to take back the future

A timely and powerful commentary on Idle No More by rabble's own 'Not Rex,' Humberto DaSilva: "In Canada Bill C-45 will allow for the privatization of reservation lands and remove environmental protection from 90 per cent of rivers. In Australia, beds are burning. In Bolivia the 'Mother Earth Law' provides the environment with "personhood" and Ecuador constitutionally protects its rivers."
