Making Contact - Idle No More

In the winter of 2012, flash mob round dances, demonstrations, hunger strikes, and blockades swept Canada.  What began as a protest against new laws seen as curtailing environmental protections and infringing indigenous sovereignty, quickly grew into a movement for indigenous rights and environmental justice.  On this edition, Sylvia McAdam, one of the founders of Idle No More, tells the story of the movement.

Featuring:

Sylvia McAdam, Idle No More co-founder; Charm Logan, Idle No More activist; Harsha Walia, Immigrants in Support of Idle No More activist.
