National First Nations campaign moves to Kamloops

The Idle No More campaign is expected to stop in Kamloops this week.

First Nations groups and environmentalists are rallying in opposition of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Bill C-45 that, among other things, would make changes to land management on aboriginal reserves.

A rally is expected in Kamloops Friday, Dec. 21. Over 200 people have confirmed attendance for the event through an online Facebook page. A peaceful march starting with elder prayers at the downtown Cooper's Foods grocery store parking lot at 10:45 a.m. will then be joined by drumming and singing on the way to Riverside Park.

There will also be a flash mob at 5 p.m. in the lower entrance of Aberdeen Mall where more dancing, drumming and speeches will take place.
