Idle No More flash mob takes over mall in Regina, Saskatchewan, on December 17, 2012. (YouTube)

Flash Mob Idle No More Round Dance Takes Over Saskatchewan Shopping Mall

ICTMN Staff
12/18/12

There are hunger strikes. There are highway blockades. And now, the Idle No More protests have arrived at the mall. The Cornwall Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan, that is.

Watch this rousing video of a round dance that erupted in this shopping center amid milling Christmas shoppers. It is one of many ways that aboriginals across Canada are taking their ire at the omnibus budget Bill C-45 and others like it public. First Nations are livid over the legislation, which they say undermines basic rights and all but nullifies treaties. It was passed in the Senate and will become law as soon as it’s signed by the Governor General.

i am grateful for you posting this and someone sharing on facebook..I looked up this date and the mall under CTV news Regina and found nothing...I think it is bullshit to report on North Korea when we have our own important matters here to look at

love hearing the teeny voice say, "mom., there's our neighbors I see our neighbors!" Open your eyes Canada, this legislation is hurting our neighbors, it's hurting us!

If all the Tribes of every nation held Round Dances @ the peak business time in as many malls as possible, then someone in government may take Heart & insist upon a change in the opposite direction. Dance, send Love & Pray every day. Love & Light, Keaha.

Canadian government Senators and other government officials should be ashamed of themselves. Aboriginals shown here during the flash mob roudance did a beautiful job of dancing and singing, were peaceful and got lots of attention from shoppers in this mall. What a beautiful job they did. I hope to see more demonstrations of this kind all over America in Canada and the USA. People need to know how many tribes their are that weren't killed off when settlers came. People need to know what all the tribes have been put through and history needs rewritten to show what really happened to all Aboriginal peoples in Canada and the USA in each territory and state, rather than the nonsense that is in history books for school children seen still today. It's time for the truth to be told and for the injustices still being done to be brought before the world's eyes to see. Well done. I would have joined in had I been there.
