article imageFirst Nations rally for treaty rights Special

By Paula Kirman     Nov 29, 2013 in Politics
Edmonton - First Nations from Treaty 6-8 joined with Idle No More for a Peaceful Solidarity Rally with Indigenous People and Canadians, on November 28, 2013 at the Alberta Legislature building.
The rally was in response to a perceived lack of meaningful consultation on legislations, policies, and regulatory changes put forth by the Government of Alberta concerning issues such as land, water, and Treaty agreements.
Speakers included chiefs from numerous First Nations groups, as well as politicians and community advocates. Around 100 people took part on the cold day on the steps of the Alberta Legislature building. Here is a look at some of what happened.
