Spotted: Idle No More at the Eaton Centre


SPOTTED BY: HiMY SYeD and Fifth_Business

WHERE: the Eaton Centre

WHEN: Sunday, December 30

WHAT: The Native protest movement known as Idle No More returned to the Yonge-Dundas area after a successful outing there a week ago. CP24 reports that about 250 people took part in a flash mob, the goal of which was to call attention to what organizers believe to be a pattern of disregard for First Nations people by the Harper government. Several cities have seen similar protests in recent weeks.

Helping to animate the movement is a hunger strike by Attawapiskat First Nations Chief Theresa Spence, who has vowed not to eat solid food until Prime Minister Stephen Harper agrees to meet with her and other Native leaders.
