I think Mr. Bonaparte is rather brave to make this statement. Not everyone is in support of Spence's hunger strike. Before making a commitment I would suggest that people do their research. I found out that there were several issues to consider i.e., budget bill c-45, the people of her village, a diamond company, the First Nations people human rights, etc. Then I read where Spence is not exactly on a REAL hunger strike. I am a tribal member too, and am familiar with violation of civil rights, human rights, and treaty rights and everything else I suppose. Nelson Mandela and Ghandi were involved with their endeavor for most of their lives...Theresa Spence's solution to getting a meeting with the Prime Minister is a hunger strike? That is a slow suicide, like alcoholism. Then there is the audit...what is the secrecy behind the financial reports of this village? If this is as important to some of you why not join Chief Spence? Hopefully on January 11, the meeting the Prime Minister will include Theresa Spence. Didn't people in other countries used to douse themselves with gas too? To no avail. I read some where that there is an art to diplomacy.
