No More Silence- 5th Annual Rally for our Missing Sisters

No One Is Illegal-Toronto urges all its allies and supporters to join the No More Silence March on February 14th, 2010 to honour the lives of over 500 missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. Come together to grieve the loss of beloved sisters, remember the women who are still missing, and to dedicate ourselves to justice.

- Please forward widely -

5th Annual Rally for Our Missing Sisters

When: Sunday, February 14, 2009 @ 12 pm
Where: Rally at Police HQ, 40 College St. at Bay

We'll march to the Coroner’s Office, 26 Grenville St. Gathering with food immediately to follow at U of T’s Centre for Women and Trans People (563 Spadina Ave)

Over 500 Indigenous women have been murdered or gone missing – most over the last 30 years – on Turtle Island. We come together in defense of our lives and to demonstrate against the complicity of the state in the ongoing genocide of Indigenous women and the impunity of state institutions and actors (police, RCMP, coroners’ offices and the courts) that prevents justice for all Indigenous Peoples.

Endorsed by: YU Free Press (York University); Centre for Women and Trans People (UofT); Canadian Chiapanecas Justice for Women; For Women’s Autonomy, Rights and Dignity (FORWARD); No One Is Illegal-Toronto; CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy (Ryerson U); Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement (SAGE, UofT); Women and Gender Studies Institute (UofT); Students Against Israeli Apartheid (UofT)
