Idle No More Gathering: Communities of Watsonville will be gathering at the Watsonville Plaza in solidarity with the Idle No More movement from Canada and First Nations People.
Idle No More is a grassroots movement for Indigenous sovereignty, Indigenous rights and respect of treaties.
Indigenous communities in Canada took to the streets on December 10th 2012 as a national day of action in response to legislative abuses of indigenous treaty rights by the current federal government.
Gatherings and 'flash mobs' in solidarity throughout out Canada, the United States, Mexico and reportedly Stockholm, Sweden, London, UK, Berlin, Germany, Auckland, New Zealand, and Egypt have taken place since.
Please join the Communities of Watsonville as we gather with songs and prayers in an act of solidarity with our Northern Brothers and Sisters and all Indigenous People.
Bring your Families, Children, Elders, Friends and Neighbors.
Bring your Drums, Prayers, Songs, Medicine and Good Energy.
