Niagara wants an Inquiry for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

St Catharines – Niagara residents are organizing a peaceful awareness rally for this Saturday, March 15th at nNoon at the Gazebo at Montebello Park on 64 Ontario Street in St Catharines.

When Shawn Brant, a vocal Kanien’kehá:ka advocate for these missing and murdered Indigenous women, was arrested with supporters when they tried to escalate awareness at Tyendinaga, community members in Niagara were quick to organize a rally.

The rally will reach out to sympathetic organizations in the area like the Niagara Chapter of Native Women and the Niagara Chapter of the Council of Canadians for support. Rick Dykstra, PC Member of Parliament for St Catharines area, will be invited to the peaceful event along with other area politicians and dignitaries.

Supporters and organizers all agree that any attention raised for this under- addressed issue is good and they are hopeful that things can change for the better through events like this rally and other events to draw attention in the coming weeks.

For questions about the rally please email or show up with a good mind at nNoon on Saturday.
