National First Nations campaign moves to Kamloops

December 20, 2012 - 6:02 PM

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.
