Idle No More - Flash Mob Round Dance

http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwor...ng-mall-146394

Flash Mob Idle No More Round Dance Takes Over Saskatchewan Shopping Mall
ICTMN Staff
December 18, 2012

There are hunger strikes. There are highway blockades. And now, the Idle No More protests have arrived at the mall. The Cornwall Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan, that is.

Watch this rousing video of a round dance that erupted in this shopping center amid milling Christmas shoppers. It is one of many ways that aboriginals across Canada are taking their ire at the omnibus budget Bill C-45 and others like it public. First Nations are livid over the legislation, which they say undermines basic rights and all but nullifies treaties. It was passed in the Senate and will become law as soon as it’s signed by the Governor General.

http://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/hundreds-...c-45-1.1073796



Linda Hoang, CTV Edmonton
Published Monday, Dec. 10, 2012 2:23PM MST
Last Updated Monday, Dec. 10, 2012 6:49PM MST

Hundreds of people in Edmonton joined countless more across the country on Monday for a rally in opposition of the federal government’s Bill C-45.

First Nations, Métis and supporters in Edmonton came together for an ‘Idle No More’ demonstration downtown Monday afternoon.

Police estimate more than 1,500 people attended the demonstration, which coincides with International Day for Human Rights.



Protesters say First Nations lands and treaty rights are being infringed upon through the government’s contentious omnibus budget bill.

“The reason we’re gathering as one nation is because the Government of Canada, Stephen Harper, has put through an omnibus bill that will affect the treaties and the ability for the people on the treaty territories to make decisions in regards to land, resources and minerals,” said Elder Taz Bouchier.
Bill C-45 was more than 400 pages long and, like its predecessors, made changes to a myriad of rules and regulations.

First Nations groups are concerned over changes to the Indian Act, some of which may affect the leasing of reserve lands and how decisions involving band territories are made. First Nations are also opposed to amendments to the Navigable Waters Protection Act, which removed thousands of lakes and streams from federal protection under that law, something the Conservatives said would help remove red tape that held up projects along waterways.

Opposition parties argue that it removes environmental oversight of some of Canada's most valued lakes and rivers.

“Bill C-45 specifically attacks the treaty statuses and treaty rights around lands in Canada and therefore we as a people have decided there needs to be mass movements across the nation, helping this government understand we are still here, the treaties are still alive and they need to be abided by,” Bouchier said.

A group of First Nations chiefs frustrated with what they say is a lack of consultation over measures in the bill attempted to get in the chamber of the House of Commons last week and had a brief confrontation with security staff.

Pam Palmater, chair of indigenous governance of Toronto’s Ryerson University told CTV’s Power Play last week that Prime Minister Stephen Harper specifically promised First Nations leaders that his government would not approve any unilateral changes to the Indian Act, but “he has broken that promise with at least eight pieces of legislation since.”

Palmater said aboriginal groups are considering “all options,” including seeking a court injunction.
Locally, protesters also voiced concerns over the way the amendments to the bill were presented, saying First Nations members were not properly consulted.

“He has had no consultation with the aboriginal community and that’s part of the discussion he needs to have with us as a people, with chiefs and treaty status people,” Bouchier said.

“For too long in this country there has been no consultation with the aboriginal community. We need to be consulted in every level of government.”

Monday's rally and march in Edmonton included a pipe ceremony, singers and speakers.
Many of the demonstraters came from all across northern Alberta, and many included youth.
"I’m glad to see we have a lot of participation especially from the youth," said demonstrator Orlando Alexis.

"They realize through talking to their families, the implications associated with what they’re (the government is) trying to do will affect not only them but their children and their children in the future."

David Janvier came down from Cold Lake to participate in the rally.

"The omnibus bill they have is going to hurt our future generations," Janiver said.

"We've always been sovereign to our land we will be sovereign to the end. We will continue to fight."
In Calgary, hundreds gathered outside Prime Minister Stephen Harper's constituency office to protest the bill.

Both Edmonton and Calgary's rallies coincided with 13 others taking place across Canada.

First Nations members tell CTV News Monday’s rallies across the country were just the beginning.
“This is the first of many other gatherings we will have to combat what Stephen Harper is doing with his omnibus bills,” Bouchier said.

We are having idle no more protests in our shopping malls too. Here is the info. Here is the link for story http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/eve...cle/id/253625/
About a dozen American Indian drummers and several dozen supporters gathered inside Miller Hill Mall on Saturday afternoon to stage a “flash” drum circle and round dance aimed to show solidarity with protests taking place in Canada.

Word of the impromptu gathering, which started at about 2 p.m. and lasted about 25 minutes, was spread through social media over about three days, organizers said.

“We’re just doing our part, trying to get noticed,” said Landon Manitowabi of Duluth. “We’re all native; (our) brothers in Canada need our help.”

But the event was held in defiance of mall officials, who said they reached out to organizers beforehand and informed them that such an event on mall property, without the required insurance and other documentation, would violate mall policy.

Mall security guards and Duluth police officers, who work there on overtime paid for by the mall during the holiday season, were on hand during the gathering until it dispersed. There were no arrests, police said.

The drum circle formed in the court north of Younkers, and the drums and the calls of participants echoed through the mall. Organizers said the event was tied to what’s being called the “Idle No More” campaign that has included large protests by First Nations across Canada against the Canadian government’s policies toward native communities.

The Canadian Press reported that Theresa Spence, the chief of the Attawapiskat First Nation in far northern Ontario, is on a hunger strike in Ottawa, demanding to meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper and trying to start a national conversation about poverty in native communities.

Protesters closed down part of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Sault Ste. Marie on Saturday. “Flash” events similar to the one at Miller Hill Mall have taken place at Canadian shopping centers.

While the Canadian protests may seem far away, those who gathered Saturday in Duluth said the concerns transcend international borders.

“It’s a show of support; we believe in no boundaries,” said drummer Les Gibbs of Duluth.

Manitowabi and fellow participant Raven Sohm of Duluth said Miller Hill Mall was chosen as a central, high-visibility gathering point for people from as far as Grand Portage, Bemidji and Ashland who traveled to Duluth to take part.

A similar gathering was planned for later in the day at Bentleyville, Sohm said.

While the right for people to gather and speak at Bentleyville — an event held in a city park — has been upheld in recent court rulings, Miller Hill Mall is private property. Participants in Saturday’s event cited other gatherings they’ve seen at the mall, such as dance and choir performances, as reasons why they felt they should be allowed to gather, too.

But Machelle Kendrick, the mall’s director of marketing and business development, said those past events all followed procedures the facility has set in place for groups who want to hold events at the mall, such as filing a certificate of insurance and other required paperwork.

“They had permission to be in the mall,” she said.

The organizers of Saturday’s drum circle did not follow those procedures, Kendrick said. She also said that while mall officials like to host community events, the mall does not allow protests, or events with political and religious slants.

“We’re like Switzerland. We’re very neutral, and we have to be that way to make sure we represent all of the Northland,” she said.

Kendrick said officials were “discouraged” that the group showed up anyway after being informed of mall policy. But she said the mall had a security plan in place, focused on ensuring mall visitors’ safety and that business at the mall’s stores was not interrupted. Any large gathering poses security concerns, she said.

After the drumming ended, Kendrick said, mall officials talked to some of the participants.

“We thanked them for gathering peacefully, and asked them to leave peacefully,” she said.

Drummers placed their instruments back into shopping bags, bottles of water were passed around and camera phones that had been held aloft were tucked back into pockets as the crowd dispersed without incident.
