    Can someone tell me what the INM movement is about? Everywhere I look I cannot find an explanation or purpose? What are the specific goals of this movement. Only info I can find is obscure and high level

    Thanks
    Mike

    I like how you ladies decided to schedule an event about leadership with leaders on the Treaty 4 territory at the exact same time and place as the Treaty Four Grassroots Movement's event and have not taken steps to make it one big, inclusive event and work together with them as they had planned to have a unity walk and then end with talks from indigenous leadership at the SAME location and time. I thought this was about solidarity? How should they go about their event which supports IdleNoMore when you guys went over their heads and scheduled an event right over them in the same place and time, but yet won't even recognize their event or try do it side by side with them? They wanted to have leaders and use the tipi too. I'm sure their group would welcome support as they do it all for the people as well, as what you ladies claim to do also. Wouldn't it be best to work together and acknowledge those people who are trying so hard to further this movement?

    We are all on the same side.

    Since the Idle No More Started through social media - would it be appropriate to work through the demands and agreements of various parts of the country by using social media as well? I'm not sure how this could be done but it seems possible and more than likely.
