EXTENDED DEADLINE: Dissent: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference

updated: 
Sunday, April 7, 2013 - 11:40am
Dalhousie Association of Graduate Students in English

On December 11th 2012, Chief Theresa Spence of the Attawapiskat First Nation in Northern Ontario declared a hunger strike to critique the federal government's abuses of treaty rights and First Nations communities, and to draw attention to the detrimental and incalculable effects of Bill C-45 on Canada's rivers and lakes. Across the country, local chapters of Idle No More acted in solidarity: orchestrating flash mobs, drum circles, demonstrations, and teach-ins to inform the public about the impact of this legislation on First Nations and non-First Nations alike. It is this strong, positive dissenting action that led to nationwide coverage of the movement, and to solidarity protests around the world.
