On Friday, Tar Sands Blockaders answered a call to action from Idle No More. A couple dozen people, including blockaders and indigenous people, rallied in solidarity outside the office of the Canadian Consulate in Houston. The rally was held in conjunction with a convening of indigenous chiefs to discuss sovereignty and treaty relations, and a meeting between Canadian federal officials and First Nations community members. Protests in support of indigenous sovereignty were held all across Canada yesterday, and blockaders hope to nurture our burgeoning relationship of solidarity with indigenous people by continuing to amplify their message.
For a world without borders – Idle No More!
