      1. You've missed Saskatoon event page

        1. We have an event on Friday as well as a Facebook page that we would like added.




        2. We have an event and Facebook page we would like added.




        3. i'm still waiting for Somba K'e, Denendeh (Yellowknife, NT) and Vancouver BC December 21st to be put on the events page!

      2. We should get a National Skype Broadcast or streaming media coordinated? If anything have video collected so it can be edited and posted to youtube for social networks for all those that stay home that day and Wonder after, 'Whoa! What just happened on December 10th?'

      3. is there gonna be one in Lloydminster??

      4. NWT - Dene of Denendeh

        For Immediate Release
        [Sombah K’e, Denendeh] - The Concerned Dene of Denendeh stand in solidarity with other First Nations, non-status Indians, Metis, Inuit and settler Canadians who oppose the legislation the Harper Government has put forward in Bill C-45 and other bills.
        We stand on the path of our ancestors and hold strong to our Nation to Nation relationship through Treaties 8 and 11. The Dene have always been and continue to be a sovereign people. The unilateral passage of Bills C-45, C-27, S-2, S-6, S-8, C-428, S-207, S-212 was done without adequate and proper consultation with First Nations. These proposed changes are a violation of our Treaty Rights. The passage of these Bills is another colonial act that speaks to a small segment of society. Changes to any legislation must be conducted in the spirit and intent of our Treaties, with both Nations having equal say.
        This legislation represents another attempt by the Canadian state to undermine Indigenous sovereignty and the inherent right to land and resources from First Nations peoples. There are many examples of other countries moving towards sustainability, and we demand sustainable development as well. We believe in healthy, just, equitable and sustainable communities.
        We support #IdleNoMore and oppose the legislation the Harper Government has put forward. We call on the leaders of Denendeh to voice our concerns. We ask all the people of Denendeh to raise their own voices in unison.
        - 30 -
        Concerned Dene of Denendeh

        Rally – Mark Strahl’s Constituency office
        Idle No More – Bill C-45 Unconstitutional
        December 21, 2012
        10:00 am - Bld #10 – 7201 Vedder Road
        Noon – March to Mark Strahl’s office

        Everyone One Welcome

        In 1969, the Liberal government of Canada under Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau brought out the “White Paper Policy,” and shared this with First Nations leadership. It was clear that the intent was to assimilate First Nations people. First Nations people responded with the “Red Paper Policy.” In 2012, we now have a Conservative government under Prime Minister Stephen Harper, which passed Bill C-45. This legislation included laws related to the Indian Act, Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, and the Navigable Waters Protection Act.

        This massive legislation was passed with little time for debate in the House of Commons, undermining democratic principles. It is established jurisprudence that the Canadian government must consult with First Nations when it contemplates an action, which may impact land claims or established First Nation rights enshrined in the Constitution of Canada. This consultation must be meaningful, open and transparent. This has not taken place. On October 18, Bill C-45, Jobs and Growth Act, was tabled. On October 22, the chiefs received a letter from the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, John Duncan, advising of these changes. There was no prior discussions or prior meetings.

        We the Stó:lõ people do not recognize Bill C-45 as legitimate legislation as it was passed in parliament without consultation with Aboriginal people and it impacts our inalienable Aboriginal Rights as recognized and affirmed in the Constitution of Canada. Therefore, it does not apply to our traditional territory. Particularly disturbing is that this legislation intends to greatly diminish the need to consider environmental impacts on First Nations water resources through changes to the Navigable Waters Protection Act. The intent behind the legislation is the clear: to make it easier for pipeline and oil tanker projects that would destroy the river systems and marine environment that sustained us for thousands of years. We are here to protect our lands, our waters and our air. We join the growing number of Canadians who object to the Harper government’s undemocratic and illegitimate practices of passing massive omnibus legislation with minimal debate, and without appropriate consultation that weakens environmental protection and furthers the colonization, and assimilation of Aboriginal people and the elimination of Aboriginal rights and title.

      22. Hello everyone,

      26. There is one in pentiction BC tomorrow as well! Here is the callout... I have not seen a facebook page...

        Bill C-45 is an omnibus bill that was passed by the Senate on December 14th by a vote of 50-27 and is about to become law. It contains 60 bills in it and should have been split up. It will affect the treaties and the ability for the people on the treaty territories to make decisions in regards to land, resources and minerals. There was no consultation with the aboriginal community by the federal government about this bill. This rally is organized by Idle No More, an aboriginal rights movement that has spread across Canada. The rally is being held in Penticton on Friday, December 21st.
        Grand Chief Stewart Phillip and His wife Joan Phillip are the spokespeople and contacts for IDLE NO MORE

      28. I am an immigrant to Canada. I was born In England and my parents brought me to this land when I was three years old. I want to thank you for sharing Turtle Island with me. Never let anyone tell you that the average middle aged white man does not stand in solidarity with the First Nations of this land. I have educated myself about the history of this land. I know all about colonialism, land theft, broken treaties, murder/attempted genocide, attempted cultural and spiritual genocide, and the residential school system. I am with you 100% in your struggle for self-determination and justice. This Government will not listen unless we all make a LOT of noise.

        SAT Dec, 29 2012 - IDLE NO MORE flashmob Denver

        Please come, start your own flashmob and/or spread this around the world. 2013- Year of the First Nations!

      37. Events in the US are not being publicized here. As we direct reporters to this site, I think it would be useful for them to see the viral nature of this movement; it is moving beyond on the Canadian borders. If I post events in the US will you include them? Thank you for this incredible blog thank you for creating it!

      38. Dear individuals behind Idle No More,

        I am in Canada just for while; however, I try to learn much as I can about the aboriginal live and issues. I would like to express here my deep support for this movement. I work in international humanitarian aid and development and I believe some of the issues inside Canada would certainly need much more attention than they get. It is a shame that we all are well aware of so many world's issues sometimes with huge publicity, and issues in our own country and sometimes even in our neighbourhood, are hidden to us, simply we want to see them.I believe unified movement can open the public eyes and start discussions.

        You have my support. But please if you want to get support of majority Canadian public, please don't build this movement on hate, quilt and colonialism. We need look for issues which connect people across Canada.

        Jakub Nemec

        1. Would you hate being quilted into one place and colonized into poverty? If this is your first visit were you first taken to a reserve so you could greet the ambassadors of this country? 41 yrs of oppression is kinda hard to take peacefully, hard to connect with your oppressors. The majority of Canada is in the same boat as us except that as the sovereigns of this land we deserve at least some semblance of decency. I hope you have a good visit. Hug a native. Derek

      39. Idle No More Moncton Round Dance - Champlain Place, 577 Paul Street, Moncton, Thursday, December 27th @ 5:00 p.m.

      41. I would like to call all nations to protest on Jan 05, That means a "GLOBAL" Protest Shut dow "ALL"Major hubs of transportation aruond the world to show solidarity in our movement and in this time of global upheaval it is most imperitive that we show the world, that the governments are ther for US! not the other way around! REMEMBER that's why they are called"PUBLIC SERVANTS" that inculdes the POLICE and MILITARY!

      42. (Syracuse, NY)

They are damaging our ways; our history; Our rights; the land and the water; food and the animals! Why this Bill? There are still reserves that don't have clean drinking water and lacking access to needed services! I am a First Nation myself and I do not like what the government is doing! It's time to get rid of Harper and his party and get the NDP to take over! Why is the Government trying to go against a 100 year-old treaty; stick with it! This government needs to quit selling our oil and resources to foreign countries! Keep up the Protest! In Solidarity;Vancouver;BC
