IDLE NO MORE – OTTAWA – ONTARIO
The First Nations Peoples of Canada are facing Genocide through Legislation & Policies
A rising movement is set to bring its message of First Nations solidarity, and defense of First Nation rights, to the doorstep of Canada’s Conservative government.
Idle No More is a Grassroots movement opposed to unilateral federal government changes to legislation affecting the Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) peoples. We are calling on all supporters, Native and Non-Native, Inuit, Métis, Chief & Councils, On-Reserve & and Off- Reserve citizens, to Rally together in Unity and Peace.
We must raise awareness to all people of impending legislative changes, being pushed through parliament to become laws that will directly affect our people, lands, all creatures that depend and reside on it.
As The First People, of this land, we must stand up, and tell the government, We will make the changes from here on out. This land we live on is ours. These Waters we depend on are ours. These changes are ours to make. We have the right to decide our future as a Nation, the future of the land and waters we live on. We can no longer remain silent in the matters that involve us now, and the generations to come. Silence is considered consent by the Harper Agenda.
