Went to Idle No More rally at Galt Gardens this afternoon. I felt very uncomfortable about the amount of white people taking the bullhorn and exclaiming that this isn't an aboriginal thing, it's a Canadian thing or a Socialist thing or whatever. What's wrong with this being a First Nations movement about very specific issues that others come out and show support for? What I'm thinking is, white politicians, unions, and other socialist/lefty groups don't need to tell First Nations people what their movement is about. We need to *listen*, take responsibility, and demand change from our government. #idlenomore #yql
