Toronto's February 14th Women's Memorial Rally and Feast
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Rally from 12:30pm until 1:30pm
Feast at the 519 Church Street Community Centre following the rally.
This year we will be Raising our Voices to Demand the United Nations Investigate Missing & Murdered Indigenous women in Canada. Alongside groups across the country, Toronto’s February 14th organizing committee comprised of No More Silence, The Native Youth Sexual Health Network, The Native Women’s Resource Centre and other Indigenous and feminist organizations will be mobilizing at Police Headquarters at 12:30 pm (on Grenville Street between Yonge Street and the Women's College Hospital) to show our support for such an investigation.
On February 14th we come together in solidarity with the women who started this vigil over 20 years ago in Vancouver’s DTES, and with the marches and rallies that will be taking place across this land. We stand 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, the courts, and an indifferent federal government) that prevents justice for all Indigenous peoples.
