I came across these two posters near Eastern Commerce Collegiate (high school) the other day.   There was a third but I didn’t take a picture of it because it was the first I saw and I didn’t realize that there was a series.  I have learned that there was a National Week of Action, (Oct 19th through 24th) organized by the Idle No More movement to stand in solidarity with Indigenous nations.    There were rallies in Vancouver, Saskatoon, Halifax, and other cities across Canada.

below: “All Eyes on Land Back Lane”, specifically 1492 Land Back Lane.  This refers to the land near Caledonia Ontario.
