1/11: Idle No More – Global Day of Action

January 10, 2013 in Uncategorized

When: Friday January 11th, from 6:00-7:00pm
Where: The State Capitol building in Denver, CO

Occupy Denver stands in solidarity with the indigenous Idle No More movement. We call on all to stand in solidarity and join the January 11th Idle No More day of action. Stand up for Indigenous sovereignty, and the protection of our land and water!

Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth.

On December 10th, Indigenous people and allies stood in solidarity across Canada to assert Indigenous sovereignty and begin the work towards sustainable, renewable development. All people will be affected by the continued damage to the land and water and we welcome Indigenous and non-Indigenous allies to join in creating healthy sustainable communities. We encourage youth to become engaged in this movement as you are the leaders of our future. There have always been individuals and groups who have been working towards these goals – Idle No More seeks to create solidarity and further support these goals. We recognize that there may be backlash, and encourage people to stay strong and united in spirit.
