A dozen Innu women have begun a long protest march from their Romaine homeland to Montreal.
Following is Google-Translator’s version of the email from the Alliance Romaine describing the start of the march:
“As expected, a march of Innu women left this morning Maliotenam on [Rt.] 138 towards Montreal. Their goal is to arrive in time for the demo which is organized on April 21 and say “no” Plan Nord. They are a dozen to be determined to complete the march. At least twice that many (including some men) left this morning from the camp at the site of the old blockade. They passed the airport and the road and I accompanied to the entrance of Sept-Iles. One man beat a drum, and several women carried sticks of pilgrimage, fitted with colored ribbons, to the Tibetan. They have vehicles that accompany the stock for sleeping along the road. So keep well, reinforcements arrive!
I will send you more info and pictures.”
