July 1st Idle No More - National Day of Action - Protect our right to a clean living Earth
Please join us this Canada Day in Kelowna @the City Park rose garden. Worldwide rallies are being organized uniting all of our peoples to protect Mother Earth. Friends of and Indigenous peoples everywhere are being called to action. The time is ripe, the time is now, here is the peaceful revolution that shows us how.
Join us at City Park on July 1, as a call to action to protect Mother Earth and celebrate Canada Day.
Event: In City Park, gather near rose garden, join our Circle for drumming, song, prayer celebrating these territories and our right to protect Mother Earth in Sacred Ritual.
Existing Canada Day events will be going on...co-create and co-exist within the parks' activities. Rules via the City Festival...no restricting flow of people, no asking others to move, no tents or infrastructure, no handing out brochures, remain respectful of noise levels, no drugs, no alcohol, no weapons.
Indigenous peoples everywhere are now claiming their United Nations recognized legal right to be a self-determining people. This is Mother Earth's last line of protection and we are asking all peoples to join us in protecting Mother Earth. It is time to be Idle No More!
This is a call out to the people of the Syilx Territories in the Okanagan to join Idle No More - Kelowna in peaceful non-violent direct action celebrating the people protecting these territories, Mother Earth and Canada.
We all need clean land, water and air to sustain life. We are saying NO to the resource-extraction state being rammed through parliament by Harper and corporate interests. Bring an intent of non-violent direct action to support Idle No More with this event officially launching Sovereignty Summer and protecting our right to a clean living Earth.
