Bridging Cultures: Idle No More protest in Surrey
An alleged assault on a First Nations woman who helped organize the Idle No More rallies has shaken the indigenous community, organizers say. This afternoon, activists will gather at Surrey to call to the public to end violence against Aboriginal women. “Bridging Cultures: An Indigenous and Indo-Canadian/South Asian Gathering” takes place today, at 5:30 pm in front of the Newtown Wave Pool.
