‘Idle No More’ plans global rallies over Canada’s aboriginals

The ‘Idle No More’ native rights movement plans to stage worldwide rallies on Friday in solidarity with Canada’s Aboriginal communities.

Organizers are preparing to stage rallies this coming Friday, which is designated as the ‘Global Day of Action’. It coincides with the same day that Prime Minister Stephen Harper plans to meet with some native leaders, including Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence.

Spence has been on hunger strike since December 11, 2012, and intends to continue the protest until Harper meets with the leaders of Aboriginal communities.

Harper ignored the movement’s requests for several weeks, but on January 4, agreed to the meeting after the hunger strike sparked several protests in and outside Canada.

The protests are aimed at drawing the world’s attention to Ottawa’s rights abuses against the Aboriginal communities.
