Supplies Not Lies! Honour Treaty Rights!
Despite ordering them 5 months ago, Six Nations schools STILL do not have all supplies. While teachers and kids are scrambling to make do, Six Nations parents have been continuously disrespected by Director of Education Peter Jones and Minister John Duncan. Enough is enough. Parents, teachers , allies demand SUPPLIES NOT LIES.
This racist injustice shows the colonial face of the fierce austerity agenda we all are facing. It is occurring in a context of massive underfunding for First Nations schools, fierce austerity measures, and Conservative plans to undermine existing treaty responsibilities through attempts to pass a national First Nations Schools Act.
Join Six Nations parents to protest the regional Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada office.
We are all treaty people. Let's all take a stand together and demand treaty rights to education be honoured.
Bus leaves from Six Nations at 10 a.m from Old Council House. Free.
