STOP THE IMPUNITY SURROUNDING THE MURDER AND DISAPPEARANCE OF INDIGENOUS WOMEN IN CANADA!!
3rd Annual Rally Against Racist Police Inaction and Impunity
February 14, 2008, 12 noon, Outside Police Headquarters at Bay and College
Strawberry Ceremony in honor of our Missing Sisters – Speakers and drumming.
Hundreds of Indigenous women have been murdered or have gone missing over the last 30 years. Today we join women in Vancouver, Edmonton and Winnipeg coming together in defense of our lives and to demonstrate the complicity of the colonizer state and its institutions – police, RCMP, coroner’s offices and the courts, in the ongoing genocide against First Nations people. Indigenous communities are over policed and Indigenous girls make up the fastest growing prison population yet their deaths go uninvestigated and their killers unpunished.
We call on all people in this country to take a stand – NO MORE SILENCE!!
Bring your drums!
No More Silence aims to develop a national network of local, Indigenous led coalitions, in solidarity with allies to support the initiatives of independent Indigenous women working to stop the disappearances and end impunity.
