From the IdleNoMore.ca website:
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.
The movement was sparked by the hunger strike (still ongoing) of Chief Theresa Spence to draw attention to the abysmal housing situation at Attawapiskat First Nation.
