RALLY ON PARLIAMENT HILL SEPTEMBER 16TH 2005 AT 10:00 AM!!!
MARTHA JOSEPH’S VICTORY WALK FOR JUSTICE FOR ABORIGINAL RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL SURVIVORS
This day will mark a historic day in Canada! Martha Joseph, from the Gitxsan Nation, a 67 year old survivor of the Port Alberni Residential School will arrive in Ottawa on Parliament Hill. Martha’s Journey started on May 26th 2005 from the door steps of the Okanagan Métis Children and Family Services in Kelowna, British Columbia. Aboriginal Residential School Survivors, Aboriginal Citizens and Non-Aboriginal Citizens walked with Martha to the city limits as she and friends began their quest to walk to Ottawa.
We invite press, Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal dignitaries, and citizens of Canada to Parliament Hill on September 16th 2005 at 10:00 am to welcome Martha’s Victory Walk for Justice.
This Rally is to bring awareness to all Residential School Survivors in all of North America. In addition, Dennis Weber a first cousin of Louis Riel and a well known Métis Artist, will be presenting his original painting on behalf of all Residential School Survivors to Parliament.
