Hundreds of Indigenous women have been murdered or have gone missing over the last 30 years. Today we join women in Vancouver, Edmonton, Sudbury and Winnipeg coming together in defense of our lives and to demonstrate the complicity of the colonizer state and its institutions - police, RCMP, coroner's offices and the courts, in the ongoing genocide against FirstNations people.
Indigenous communities are over policed and Indigenous girls make up the fastest growing prison population yet their deaths go uninvestigated and their killers unpunished.
We call on all people in this country to take a stand - NO MORE SILENCE!!
Bring your drums!
No More Silence aims to develop a national network of local coalitionscomprised of Indigenous women and allies working
together to support the initiatives of independent Indigenous women workingto stop the disappearances and end impunity.
