Idle No More, an indigenous rights movement that fights for sovereignty and environmental protection in Canada, teamed up with grassroots renewable energy advocate PowerShift BC to rally for environmental justice on October 7. The rally represented young people and First Nations indigenous groups working together to speak out against practices that would contribute to climate change, like the extraction of tar sands oil. The mood was celebratory and the focus was on building a just and sustainable future.
