IDLE NO MORE

PRESS RELEASE: JANUARY 10, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

www.idlenomore.ca

Idle No More grassroots Founders and Organizers from across Canada, in Solidarity with Common Causes - a new initiative bringing together social justice, environmental, labour and other Activist Groups…

- UNITED we are planning IDLE NO MORE WORLD DAY OF ACTION on January 28th, 2013 #J28. 

This day of action will peacefully protest attacks on Democracy, Indigenous Sovereignty, Human Rights and Environmental Protections when Canadian MPs return to the House of Commons on January 28th. As a grassroots movement, clearly no political organization speaks for Idle No More. This movement is of the people… For The People! #IDLENOMOREFTP

The Vision of IDLE NO MORE revolves around Indigenous Ways of Knowing rooted in Indigenous Sovereignty to protect water, air, land and all creation for future generations. 

The Conservative government bills beginning with Bill C-45 threaten Treaties and this Indigenous Vision of Sovereignty. 

The Goal of the movement is education and the revitalization of Indigenous peoples through Awareness and Empowerment.  IDLE NO MORE has successfully encouraged knowledge sharing of Indigenous Sovereignty and Environmental Protections. 

This message has been heard around the world and the world is watching how Canada responds to the message sent by many INM Supporters.

INM urges the government of Canada to repeal all legislation; which violates Treaties, Indigenous Sovereignty and subsequently Environmental Protections of land and water. 

INM is grateful to many leaders who have supported this vision and the movement of the grassroots people. “The Treaties are the last line of defense to protect water and lands from destruction,” stated Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper Turtle Clan, Onondaga Nation Council of Chiefs.

 

IDLE NO MORE IS THE PEOPLE…FOR THE PEOPLE!

    I am looking for an event to attend in Manitoba for Jan 28th. Are there more protests that are going to occur besides the one scheduled at the legislature building?

    We say, "Our Land!" we mean our responsibility, we say, "Protect the Land, Trees and Water!" we mean preserve our sustenance, we say, "Protect the Earth!" we mean protect and nurtutre our Mother! When people were put on this earth, we were given original instructions from our creator. He told us, "Your responsibilty is to watch over and care for the gifts I have left for you, you shall continue to beautify the earth in my absence.". Theresa and the founders of Idle No More are an inspiration to my friends and I, we feel the positivity touch our hearts.
