The Saskatchewan contingent of Idle No More is gearing up for a mass day of action on Oct. 7.
The day is planned to coincide with 250th anniversary of the British Royal Proclamation.
Sylvia McAdam, one of Idle No More’s co-founders, says the movement is calling on all supporters to organize their own events at a grass roots level.
“It’s a global day call to action and it’s whatever each community is prepared for,” she says. “Non-violent direct action will also be supported.”
She adds community events could take on a variety of forms including flash mob round dances.
McAdam says a number of events are being planned around a visit to Canada by United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous People James Anaya.
Saskatchewan Idle No More members are currently supporting a protest against oil and gas exploration on the Thunderchild First Nation.
The movement also continues to oppose the Harper government on a number of fronts including Bill C-45.
