First Peoples Worldwide » Idle No More Calls for Day of Action, Oct. 7th 2013

The announcement comes towards the end of the popular Sovereignty Summer campaign, launched on June 21, Aboriginal Day in Canada. Sovereignty Summer is a campaign of coordinated non-violent direct actions to promote Indigenous rights and environmental protection in alliance with non-Indigenous supporters. The campaign focuses specifically on six calls for change which the movement would like to accomplish:1 Repeal provisions of Bill C-45 in Canada including changes to the Indian Act and Navigable Waters Act, which infringe on environmental protections, Aboriginal and Treaty rights and abandon all pending legislation which does the same.2 Deepen democracy in Canada through practices such as proportional representation and consultation on all legislation concerning collective rights and environmental protections, and include legislation which restricts corporate interests.3 In accordance with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples’ UNDRIP principle of free, prior, and informed consent, respect the right of Indigenous peoples to say no to development on their territory.4 Cease its policy of extinguishment of Aboriginal Title and recognize and affirm Aboriginal Title and Rights, as set out in section 35 of Canada’s constitution and recommended by the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples.
