Idle No More is a protest movement which began in December 2012, originating among the Abooriginal Peoples of Canada comprising the First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples and their non-Aboriginal supporters in Canada. We take give a history of the movement in the bay area, and speak with Nina Wilson, one of the 4 founders of the movement in Canada.
We also take calls and talk over some of the weeks current events.
Guests Sarah Adams Cornell, Bob Davis and Roberto Mendoza from Idle No More Central Oklahoma will join us to discuss the movement one year after its popular beginnings. Idle No More Central Oklahoma is an inclusive, peaceful, grassroots movement committed to positive change through education, conservation, solidarity and reciprocity, acting by consensus. INMCO is an active group with many ideas and many great members.
At around this time last year, the hashtag #idlenomore was just starting to make it’s rounds on Twitter. Then the phrase hit Facebook, blogs, news sources and the rest is history. Next thing you know, there are friendly Round Dances in malls and streets around the world. Is there a future for Idle No More? I have the feeling that all our better tomorrows may, in some sense, depend on it. Happy birthday, Idle No More. Welcome, Nations Rising. http://www.aaronpaquette.net/?p=3164

Will be discussing the Idle No More Movement which is a protest across Canada of First Nations people.
This indigenous rights movement is important to First Nations and to all Canadians addresses all myths, fabrications and the issues that must be looked at and undertaken by all peoples in Canada and our judicial and other legal bodies. The Conservative party led by Stephen Harper is a corrupt government and it is getting to the point that our powers that be over Harper need to step in NOW! Before its to late.
On Tuesday Dec 11, 2012 people /Canadians tried to post on Stephen Harper's page about the Idle no more movement and either their posts were removed or they were banned. This is how much of a political censorship and dictatorship we have with this illegal rogue prime minister who was not eligible to run for the 2011 election because Stephen Harper was found in contempt of parliament.
Tonights discussion will analyze all aspects of how the Government of Canada is trying to eradicate First Nations peoples Native Rights and Aborignal Indigenous very existeence. This is really happening as we speak led by the Harper Government and the one percent. Its time people realize this and know about it and again it is time our powers that be put a stop to Stephen Harper, the Con party and this greedy corupt one percent!
Be here people or be square.
Nearly 100 people sang and danced in a flash mob round dance at West Edmonton Mall on Wednesday afternoon, the latest action in the Idle No More movement. It’s a short limo drive, maybe five minutes, from Parliament Hill to Victoria Island in the middle of the Ottawa River. Heck, you could walk it in 10. So would it kill Stephen Harper to get out of his office and go meet the chief of the Attawapiskat First Nation who is staging a hunger strike on the island to get attention for her community’s plight?Mail Chief Theresa Spence of the remote Attawapiskat First Nation launched her protest with a vow to “die” unless the Conservative government starts showing more respect to First Nations concerns and aboriginal treaties.

Accidently, TVFM tripped over this " American " movement. It may not be what you expect. But you can't argue that it's not AMERICAN.
"American " can mean...what? Is it a label? Or a philosophy? Is it a duck because we call it a duck? Or because it looks, waddles, quacks and smells like one? Confused? Good! So are the rest of US! IRS, FEMA, DHS, EPA, DOJ, DOT, DOE, FUK... shall we call the HOLE thing off? Or shall we continue?
BTW...Did I get you on that last ALPHA Agency? LOL
Let's call it multiple choice. My choice is " IRS " . However, TVFM's policy is that YOU the listener guests have the top priority.
TVFM is NOT Mimic News! TVFM is your local bull horn. So please use it or....we will all lose it!
Show #1. Times: 5:30 ET; 4:30 CT; 3:30 MT 2:30 PT Monday, January 7, 2013 Harrison Friesen will be calling in. From Harrison: I am a Indigenous Rights activist from Big Stone Cree Nation. I am a member of the american Indian movement in Canada. I have been involved in the G20 in Toronto where I led a native resistance. I have defended sacred burial sites, and have fought against police brutality. I have also been in occupations and blockades across Canada. I am also a social justice advocate for those that live in poverty and also for missing and murdered women. Yesterday I led a urban blockade against Bill C 45 and for Theresa Spence. Also Cheyenne Birdshead, a 17 year old Indigenous young lady is calling in. She was at a Flash Mob Dance at the Flat Irons Crossing Mall. The cops ask them to leave. They were in the process of leaving when she along with 3 other women were arrested. Cheyenne will explain what happened and how it all happened.
