Idle No More Voices

Submitted by Misha Averill on March 4, 2013 - 7:00am

This is such an empowering and strong young lady, Zondra "Zoey" Roy, with kind words for the future. She has experienced and participated in many "Idle No More" matters; some including visiting chemical-contamination sites on the Canadian Reserve, Blockades, and joining in song with a hand drum. Zoey is an enthisiest for the rights of Indigenous peoples and challenges us all to "wake up" and recognize the future happenings. Idle No More is a grassroots movement that cannot go ignored. First Nations people cannot be ignored. Our Mother Earth cannot be ignored. ... Bill C-45 cannot be ignored.
