We will not celebrate stolen Indigenous land and stolen Indigenous lives. #CancelCanadaDay
Instead we will gather to honour all of the lives lost to the Canadian State – Indigenous lives, Black Lives, Migrant lives, Women and Trans and 2Spirit lives – all of the relatives that we have lost. We will use our voices for MMIWG2S, Child Welfare, Birth Alerts, Forced Sterilization, Police/RCMP brutality and all of the injustices we face. We will honour our connections to each other and to the Water, Land, and Sky.
Who: any individual, group or community who wants to challenge and disrupt Canada’s ongoing colonialism*
When: July 1st
Where: any traditional Indigenous territory, urban or rural, from coast to coast to coast
What: any action, such as banner drops, sit ins, round dances, service disruptions, ceremonies, #Landback camps, marches and rallies. Please adhere to COVID-19 precautions specific to your region.
How: Gather together in person or virtually, plan your action, and share your event details on the INM Facebook event page. We encourage actions to include orange shirts, so long as it feels appropriate to do so.
