set up at 9 AM and the Health Fair will begin at 12 noon. The event still
needs translators (Spanish, Vietnamese, etc), volunteers, practitioners,
food donations, someone to do childcare and children’s activities,
videographers, and people to contact and publicize the event to the press
and media. People can also contact Monica or Maria for more info if they
can’t make the meetings.
Idle No More/DeBeers Mine protest in Canada
Amalia briefly filled us in on current situation. Briefly, there was a blockade of the road leading to
the mine. One woman who has cancer took a stand and continued the blockade
after the council decided to allow the mine to reopen and to try to
negotiate with the company. Amalia probably knows more about this issue
and could be contacted if anyone wants more info or has questions.
We will read the articles sent out by Tina and
Santosh (thanks!) and continue our discussion of this important issue at a
future GA when we feel more prepared.
