Toronto Packed Dundas Square To Show Their Support For Mi'kmaq Struggle
Protester calls what's happening right now in Nova Scotia "terrorism"
Hundreds gathered in Toronto's Dundas Square late Tuesday afternoon and blocked downtown's busiest intersection to loudly show their support for the Mi'kmaq of Nova Scotia whose lives and livelihoods have been endangered by anti-Indigenous racism.
Dancing Star, a Mi'kmaq member of the Bear Clan from near Antigonish, N.S. who now lives in Toronto, spoke to the crowd from her mobility device.
"It's terrorism that's happening all across Canada," she said, referencing the burning of a Mi'kmaq lobster yard, pipeline-related RCMP violence against the Wet'suwet'en in B.C., among other conflicts. "It's not just in my territory."
