Idle No More protests

Beginning in Canada, protest rallies and flashmobs have occured in December to protest what is described as Canada's attempt to infringe on the sovereign and other rights of First Nations peoples.
 
Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution to honor and fulfill Indigenous sovereignty and to protect land and water. 

The Idle No More group seeks to create solidarity, and wide spread and coordinated support for these goals.
 

The group lists its Plan of Action:

– Support and encourage grassroots to create their own forums to learn more about Indigenous rights and responsibilities to native Nationhood via teach-ins, rallies and social media.
 

– Build relationships and create understanding with allies across Canada.
 
– Take steps to contribute to building relationships with international agencies such as the UN to raise awareness to the conditions Indigenous people have been subjected to and assert sovereignty in the international arena.
 
– Acknowledge and honor the hard work of all grassroots people who have worked, and continue to work towards these goals and are the true inspiration
