|Native Canadian Indians Protest G20!
By Sue Earps
Toronto/Canada, June 24, 2010 - Native protestors and similar minded activists converged on Queen's Park to protest the G20/G8 summits and their longstanding disagreements with governments in North America.
The Toronto Community Mobilization website has a list the protesters complaints/demands and here they are:
1. That Canada sign the United Nations Declaration on Indigenous Rights.
2 Justice for missing indigenous women.
3 Respect for aboriginal land titles and treaty rights.
4 That a stop be put to the Athabasca Tar Sands project.
Placards and banners and even a huge flag with a message I could not read were on display and used in the march.
The march traveled along Queen Street and up Bay Street and was very peaceful.
What follows are random photos of the event:
