One of the largest Labrador Land Protector solidarity gatherings ever to take place outside of the province was held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Mississauga, Ontario.
One inspiring teacher wrote of the over 200 grade 10 students who had researched and learned about the issue and made banners and placards for the Muskrat Falls National Day of Action:
"These totally empowered young people rallied, spoke, chanted and really delivered a clear and powerful message to the school and those driving by with their cars. Carmel students held a very meaningful rally and die-in on the front steps of the school. Jodie Williams (an Ojibwe Indigenous consultant to the Dufferin Peel Catholic School Board) was there for both rallies and she said thank you to the students after their action. The banners, placards and speeches that were made throughout our walk with the megaphone were insightful and inspiring. I am truly proud of the students for their commitment, organization and participation. They delivered a powerful message of solidarity."
And so grows the movement to end the federal government's $9.2 billion investment in a project that will result in an act cultural genocide against the Inuit and Innu people and ruin the lives of all non-Indigenous downstream residents too through methylmercury poisoning and threat of mass drowning. #ShutMuskratDown!
