The Canadian public are again learning the truth about the Residential School System, but few are joining the dots to see how supporting Indigenous land defence and sovereignty movements like 1492 Landback Lane is a concrete response to the genocidal violence of the Residential School System – a legacy that all people on these lands called Canada must respond to.
A brief address will outline these facts, specifically looking at the responsibilities of Christian communities, followed by a series of actions. There will then be time to discuss questions that arise. Register here –> https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwscOGsrjIoGtTKzsk_jsZOAIGVWxQNeSle.
Guiding us through our thinking and action is Peter Haresnape (he/him), member of Christian Peacemaker Teams (Turtle Island Solidarity Network), Cahoots festival organizer, currently a student and pastor of Toronto United Mennonite Church
