Idle No More: Native-Led Protest Movement Takes On Canadian Government | Rolling Stone

Idle No More: Native-Led Protest Movement Takes On Canadian Government | Rolling Stone | IndigenouslLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Similar protests took place in Halifax, Calgary, Winnipeg, Montreal, Vancouver and other cities across Canada and in the United States. They were part of a "world day of action" organized under the banner of Idle No More – a native rights movement that has been heating up since October, when the Canadian government proposed a bill, known as C-45, that included provisions to undermine environmental protection and indigenous sovereignty."

- Brooke Jarvis, Rolling Stone

Depuis que Theresa Spence, chef d'Attawapiskat, a entamé une grève de la faim pour obtenir une rencontre avec Stephen Harper, le mouvement de contestation autochtone a été revigoré autant qu'il a été traversé par de nouvelles tensions. Regard sur la réalité des Premières Nations grâce aux livres Quel Canada pour les Autochtones?, de Renée Dupuis, et Kuessipan, de Naomi Fontaine.

The natives are restless. Wondering why?

The natives are restless.  Wondering why? | IndigenouslLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
Although thousands of indigenous people all over Canada rallied together under the banner of Idle No More on December 10th, there has been very little media coverage on the movement. Most of what is being said in the mainstream media is focused on Bill C-45. I’d like to make it clear…they’re getting it wrong.

"They marched across the bridge in Halifax. They greeted the sun in Montreal.  They jingle-danced in Ottawa and round-danced just about everywhere else.

...

Across Turtle Island in particular, tribes and bands from both sides of the 49th  Parallel were flash-mobbing like crazy, breaking out in round dances all over  the U.S., in Alaska, Michigan, Coloarado, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts,  Minnesota, Montana, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, New  York, Texas, Washington State, Oregon and elsewhere."

Events happened in the UK, France, Sweden and Greenland as well.

Idle No More: Non-Indigenous responsibility to act | rabble.ca | IndigenouslLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

I encourage all non-Indigenous people to:

-Know the history and the stories of elders of what has happened on this territory.

-Place decolonization at the centre of all progressive/social justice organizing you do.

-Read and understand the Indian Act and how this racist piece of legislation is used today.

-Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Be humble. Walk softly. Be kind. Be bold.
