Idle No More: Global Super-Movement. What started as a murmur in early October from First Nations People in Canada in response to Bill C45 has become a movement that echoes the sentiments of people all over the world, a battle cry of love for the planet, "Idle No More." At first glance it might appear that this movement is isolated and doesn't effect you if you are not native or if you don't live in Canada, yet it does.
The movement of Idle No More began in late October when four Native women in Saskatchewan disagreed with a bill that would threaten environmental protection as well as some other laws. Th women felt that the government as trying to erode the Native treaties. Chief Theresa Spence went on a hunger strike and demanded to speak with Stephen Harper. She ended it on January 23rd without meeting her key demand, however she did have her concerns reviewed by the NDP and First Nations Assembly.
