1pm, Statehouse, Boston, MA, BRING YOUR DRUM

To demonstrate your support for the rising global Indigenous Peoples
Movement by taking action in your community with your event to run parallel
to the meeting between PM Harper and the AFN.

The goal is to raise the profile of the movement, demonstrate our global
presence, and give visibility to the growing momentum as a peoples’
movement first.

As only a few AFN-determined representatives will be chosen to participate
in the meeting with Harper, it will be important to show that the rest of
the movement stands united with one voice, that it is not going anywhere,
and that we here to demonstrate the strength and resurgence of our nations.

January 11 will also be in honour of Chief Theresa Spence to mark the
1-month anniversary of her hunger strike. As well as to honour the other
chiefs and elders who have been on hunger strike with her.

All nations and all people from around the world are invited to join in
celebrating and affirming their support for what is happening and the need
to keep things moving forward together.

What Can You Do?

It is hoped that every community will take the opportunity to organize a
#J11 event or action in their own way.

There is no specific action being suggested, just simply a framework and
rallying point for all peoples to stand united—to offer a strong, loud and
visible alternative to the AFN/Harper agenda and messaging.

Please spread the word and organize in your community.

On Twitter, use #J11 hashtag for your event.
