Idle No More
Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water.

Chief Theresa Spence’s hunger strike has full backing of Attawapiskat residents
Chief Theresa Spence’s hunger strike has full backing of Attawapiskat residents. Chief Theresa Spence’s home is smack-dab in the middle of this tiny, remote First Nation: a large, yellow trailer that was always bustling, with people coming in and congregating outside.
There is no one here now except a teenage girl house-sitting.
