REPORTING · 30th December 2012
The Idle No More had gone from assembly to a march to the centre of town and back again. It was Sunday, December 30.
Once the march to the intersection of Haisla and Lahakas had returned the mall, the supporters of Chief Theresa Spence opened the doors and walked on in. They made there way to the lower part of the Mall and continued to drum. The leader of the Spirit of the Kitlope commented on how they were united like a braid of hair, mind, body and soul, difficult to break.
One of those who gathered said his piece. “This is our land, those hills, those mountains, it’s ours. We didn’t come and visit the white man here and take over them, they came and took over us,” he said.
He added there are other things which he would sooner be doing but this cause is more important. With that, those gathered marched out of the mall and dispersed.
There were approximately 250 people out to show their support.
