In observance of International Women's day today

We will listen to First Nations Hunger Strikers Shelley A Young and Elder Jean Sock who are on their 8th day of the strike. Shelly made a passionate plea for help. These two wonderful people are prepared to die to bring attention, awareness to the plight of First Nations tryignm to ward off Genocide through racist and discrimation practices of the the Federal Government of Canada and other parties.

I will be continuing my reading  of the full 89 page report just release and made public by the Human Right Watch on " Those That Take Us Away" where there are allegations that the RCMP ( Royal Canadian Mountain Police) discriminate and abuse/sexual abuse First Nations Women. We will start on half way thought page 31.

Mainstream media news reports are advising that the RCMP head honchos ( the old boys club mentality) are dismissing the report. 

In the meantime the RCMP is going to be investigated by 
"Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP"

This commission is is an independent agency, created by Parliament, to ensure that complaints made by the public about the conduct of RCMP members are examined fairly and impartially. The CPC accepts and attempts to resolve complaints lodged by the public about the conduct of RCMP members. More specifically, it conducts reviews when complainants are not satisfied with the RCMP's handling of their complaints; conducts investigations; holds hearings; reports findings; and makes recommendations for changes in national policing policy and practice.

If it takes more then one show to completed the reading so be it. 


It should be noted that Meghan Rhoades does not feel this report belongs to anyone including the HRW other then the Indigenous women who spoke with them.
