IdleNoMoreFirst Nations people and their supporters are uniting under the banner Idle No More against the federal government’s changes to legislation which will affect treaties and traditionally used lands.

At noon on Friday, December 21st, a grassroots led protest is expected to attract thousands of Aboriginal people to a ceremony at Victoria Island, who will then march in solidarity on to Parliament Hill. Idle No More Ottawa will feature voices from many nations and political stripes in a speakers rally that will last until dusk.

The peaceful event page, which organizers simply posted on Facebook and Twitter, has elicited support for change from around what’s known as Turtle Island and follows several similar protests held across Canada.
