Saugeen is organizing a day of action for November 15th, 2016 to show our support to the Water Protectors at Standing Rock. We are in the planning stages and our show of support will be in the afternoon on the 15th (no time set yet). This will be a peaceful event to honour and support the Water Protectors on the front lines, who have remained peaceful throughout the last few months in spite of how they have been treated. It's very important that we follow their example of integrity, grace and commitment to peace.
We are also putting a call out to our young men (youth) to act as our Protectors (security) for the day of the event. We need our young Warriors to be involved in this important event. Please come out on Weds. Nov. 9th, so that we can help prepare you for this responsibility.
We are hoping for a great turn out from Saugeen Members as well as all other supporters in our area. This is definitely an issue that will affect all future generations. Water is Life!
As this is very short notice, please help spread the word!
