Global Illumination Council posted this video from Real News about the hunger strike and resulting blockades and flash mobs that have been carried out by indigenous peoples in Canada.  Environmental degradation due to vast industrialization of their home lands is of great concern to Canada’s indigenous people.

GIC reports:

“Hunger strike by Chief Theresa Spence against new government legislation and long term denial of indigenous rights sparks nation wide movement.”
