Idle No More – Flash Mob Round Dance
Idle No More is a fast spreading movement in Indian Country. According to their blog:
Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth.
This past week Idle No More has staged peaceful protests in malls around Canada. Using flash mobs, dozes of people are gathering for round dances.
