Rush-hour rallies downtown this morning mark murdered, missing women

  • Print

THIS year's march to remember missing and murdered women is taking on an Idle No More aspect, with rush-hour rallies at busy intersections downtown this morning. In addition, there will be an evening march today, with marchers gathering at Young United Church, 100-222 Furby St., at 5:30 p.m.

In Winnipeg, organizers said through Facebook postings that supporters are being called to rally at downtown intersections from 8 to 9:30 a.m. The event is marked with the Idle No More logo.

This year, the focus is on action, with community groups and aboriginal leaders expected to repeat calls for a national inquiry about some 600 missing and murdered women in Canada. There are similar events in cities across the country.

The emphasis this year is on widening the scope of responsibility for violence against aboriginal women and for the perpetuation of it.
