Our thoughts are with… Chief Theresa Spence

Ottawa, Canada

Chief Theresa Spence of Attawapiskat First Nation is in the 9th day of her hunger strike on Victoria Island, about 1.3 km from Canada’s Parliament Buildings on Capital Hill. She has called for a face-to-face meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper and representatives of the Queen regarding First Nations treaty issues.

There is a groundswell of support for the bold stance she is taking, not just among Canada’s 1.2 million Aboriginal descendents, but also across non-Aboriginal “mainstream” Canada and beyond.
