“Idle No More” 

Idle No More

Idle No More is bringing all kinds of  issues, opinions, and feelings to the surface in Canada.  In this seminar, we’ll discuss the movement’s  tactics, aims, and portrayal in the media. We’ll also debate its success in communicating grievances, and how its message is resonating with mainstream society.

And if we’re lucky, we’ll help dispel some myths, and place what’s happening now in the wider history of social movements.

UofA PhD Candidate Daniel Johnson will be there to speak and discuss the movement as well.

Please RSVP to rkafara@ualberta.ca if you plan on attending, so we know how many seats to save.
