Idle No More and Defenders of the Land set January 28, 2014 as national day of teach-ins focused on First Nations Education Act.
National Treaty Alliance and Assembly of First Nations joins Idle No More and Defenders of the Land on Canada’s Parliament Hill to say “NO” to First Nations Education Act (FNEA) and Federal Termination Plan.
Ottawa - Today is International Human Rights Day and also marks Idle No More’s one-year anniversary of last year’s national day of action. In honor of this occasion, hundreds of First Nations protesters have taken to the steps of Canada’s Parliament to send a resounding “No” to the Conservative government’s First Nations Education Act (FNEA) and the federal Termination Plan to extinguish First Nations’ collective rights. On this historic day, we are choosing to launch IdleNoMore 2.0 – our call to the tens of thousands of supporters in our movement to join in a massive educational undertaking from coast to coast to coast on January 28th – and introducing our crowdfunding campaign, which will be available on December 11, 2013, atwww.idlenomore.ca/support.Read more

Idle No More is one of the largest Indigenous mass movements in recent history – sparking hundreds of teach-ins, rallies, and direct actions across the globe. What began as a series of teach-ins on November 10th, 2012 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to protest laws that would scale back on environmental protections and threaten Indigenous self-determination, has now changed the social and political landscape of Canada and beyond. We know that many communities will be holding symbolic celebrations on Nov 10th to honour the birth of Idle No More. Idle No More organizers hope that all of us as individuals and as groups do take a moment on Nov 10th to look back and look ahead. And if you are planning a celebration or action on Nov 10th then please add it to the events listing on the website and if you are able to, please join the webinar below! To mark the One Year anniversary of the Idle No More Movement, we will be launching a series of webinars, beginning with renowned Anishnaabe activist Winona LaDuke.Read more
