Location: 339 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg
Native Rights Leaders and Social justice activists from the American Indian Movement (AIM) and Red Power United (RPU) are sending a call out for a show of solidarity by Native & Non-Native Men & Women in the roles of leadership including Youth Leaders, Student Group Leaders, Grassroots Leaders, Community Leaders and all other community members [young and elderly] from all backgrounds and walks of life to gather in unity to demand justice for the families of Missing & Murdered Women in (Winnipeg) on February 14th 2012.
The numbers of Missing & Murdered Women in Manitoba are on the rise and the lack action and or accountability by Law Enforcement, Government Officials & some First Nations Leadership is unacceptable.
We will gather @ 3:30 pm outside the APTN building on the corner of Carlton & 339 Portage Avenue for a ceremony.
We then will walk to Indian and Northern Affairs Canada at 365 Hargrave where we will send a message to Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan.
Then head to the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) located at 275 Portage Avenue where we will hear from First Nations Organizers & Activists who will voice their concerns to the Leadership of the AMC & (AFN).
We will then continue to make our way to the Law Courts located at 408 York Ave where we will hear from other invited guest speakers.
We will then continue our walk to and end (our event) at The Legislative Assembly of Manitoba, Memorial Blvd before 5:30pm.
