Indigenous Struggles / Luttes autochtones

Innu women speak out about the Plan Nord and violence against their communities.

They will speak about the impacts of the new infrastructure development north of the 49th parallel and its devastating cultural and environmental implications.

Event will be in French with simultaneous translation to English. Événement aura lieu en français avec traduction simultanée en anglais. Wheelchair accessible, and childcare available with 48 hours notice. Presented by the 2110 Centre for Gender Advocacy's Missing Justice campaign (Justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women) in collaboration with Regroupement de solidarité avec les Autochtones, Alliance Romaine, PASC and the Anti-Colonial Solidarity Collective.

With guest speakers Denise Jourdain, Élyse Vollant and Ellen Gabriel :

When: Saturday the 29th of September, 10 am-5 pm
Where: the 7th floor of Hall, at Concordia University, 1455 boulevard de Maisonneuve West

The event will take place in two stages: a panel on Friday evening with indigenous women involved in resistance to colonialism, followed by an open forum on Saturday for sharing our strategies, with workshops and spaces for discussion. If you already have a workshop you would like to present on Saturday, you will be able to propose it during the open forum. The forum will serve to verbalize our paths of sharing and discussion, on an anti-capitalist and anti-colonial basis.
