Anti-racist groups rally outside courthouse for neo-Nazi trial

(Page 3 of 3)

 
“As an Indigenous person, I'm here to show my outrage, and that I'm not afraid to stand up for my people when one of our own was assaulted, or any people of colour. We need to show our support to the victims, and against racism. We're all one people. The justice system and police didn't take due care towards our missing women because of their status and their colour.”
 
Speakers at the protest said they will organize at the next trial date – March 12 – as well as for a community march against racism on March 18 for International Day against Racism Discrimination, organized by No One Is Illegal.
