Idle No More – Wednesday in Peterborough
Wednesday December 19, 2012
2:30 pm until 4:30 pm
The Call Out:
This is a Peaceful Protest to show support for Indigenous nations, Indigenous people, their rights, and the legal obligations of treaties (which Canadians and Indigenous peoples are signatories of).
We will rally between 2 and 2:30 at the corner of Clonsillla and Lansdowne St. W. From here will we walk to Dean Del Mastro's Constituency Office at 1600 Lansdowne St. West. (In order to keep this peaceful and proper we will need to stick to the sidewalks and grass rather then the parking lots at his office.
Speakers will include Elder Shirley Williams as well as role models in the territory. We are hopeful to obtain speakers from Curve Lake, Hiawatha, as well as Alderville.
It is time to continue the work of our elders and ancestors and show the Canadian government that it can not continue to impose upon us or implement policies without proper and dutiful consultation!
See you all there - Chi-Migwetch!

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.
