***We are still looking to CONFIRM SPEAKERS. If you or someone you know is able to speak on Bill C-45, or any of the topics relating to Idle No More, please let me know :o) Thank you.

This event is for coming together in Solidarity, First Nations and Non, and learning about what is happening, how it affects us all and why we should all CARE.

Hoping to put together another hand-out with more information (still eco-friendly, still english, french and spanish translations). Speakers on even more facets of the Idle No More movement and why all Canadian, actually all World Citizens should care. More time for interaction and conversation during speaking portion of the event. etc...

Let everyone you know what an incredible event the last one was and bring them with you to this next one. All together, let's make it even better!

Hoping to find more help/confirmation with the following:
- Video recording and translation. (including traslators at the event - enlish/french/spanish - and can anyone sign???)
- Getting the event online (live)
- Donations for poster and handouts - goal to print 1000 copies of program/pamphlet this time (eco friendly of course)
- OFFLINE ADVERTISING for event - so people know about it before, not after.
- Student and other groups to hand out (one by one) feathers with attached info about event/Idle No More. (will be ongoing for all Montreal Teach-In events for Idle No More) - supplies, donations, assembly, handout.

Also hoping for (even more) drummers/singers/dancers arrive for some fabulous sharing.

Join and Invite Friends, Family, Colleagues,... The more who know, the more will come. The more that come, the more who will know. And on, and on, and.... ;o)

*IF you can't make it but wish you could... click 'maybe' and then invite all your fb friends ;o)

THANKS:
To everyone who joined in the first Montreal Teach-In event to make it such a wonderful success. And thank you to all those who will share in making this event equally incredible :o)

Respect and Solidarity.
Resilience and persistence!

I think Canadians are, person by person, a good, compassionate and loving people, and I do believe, that while so many of us have, remained utterly unaware until recently, once we know better, we will, do better.

This, Third World Living Conditions, Inherent and Human Rights abuses, Extreme oppression and what has been called an attempt at eradication of not just one but many Nations of People's is NOT
MY Canada!!!

We are a patient and forgiving People, us Canadians,
but the time has come.
Let us stand together in Solidarity to say Out Loud,

We will be, Idle No More.

Thank you to everyone making efforts to be heard right now, gratitude :o)
