30 Actions in Solidarity with Mi'kmaq Anti-Fracking Protest!

Our Mi'kmaq relatives need our support. Members of the Elsipogtog First Nation and supporters of the Anti-Shale, Anti-Fracking Nonviolent Action in New Brunswick (Canada) were under attack today because of state-initiated violence by the RCMP. Idle No More denounces this state violence and calls out to all of our supporters GLOBALLY to light your sacred fires or other peaceful actions to show support and alliance with the people of New Brunswick.

    Decolonization

    Indigenous Peoples need to decolonize under the framework of Article 1 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights on self-determination. This means that Canada needs to broaden its thinking beyond the colonial restrictions of the BNA Act 1867. The Constitution Express 1980 and the British Lobby in 1981 resulted in section 35 and section 37 be added to the Canadian Constitution in 1982. It is important that Canada approach Indigenous Peoples right to self-determination based on the constitutionally imposed recognition and affirmation of Aboriginal and Treaty Rights and fulfill its obligation to hold formal constitutional conferences until Aboriginal and Treaty Rights are mutually agreed to with Indigenous Peoples.
