Idle No More has called for a Global Day of Action on Oct 7 - #Oct7Proclaim
October 7, 1763, marked the signing of the British Royal Proclamation, an historic document that legally mandated Canada to recognize Indigenous land rights.
250 years later, on October 7, 2013... Idle No More calls on all peoples to raise (y)our voices and take action in support of:
-- Our Land
-- Our Water
-- Our Bodies
-- Our Stories
-- Our Future
-- Indigenous Sovereignty!
Oct 7 is also the day that the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Professor James Anaya, will begin an official visit to Canada to examine the human rights situation of the indigenous peoples of the country.
Proclaim the importance of Indigenous Sovereignty! Stand up and be heard this October 7, 2013!
