The video above was Uploaded to Youtube on Jan 9, 2012
It is the first I have seen but is so representative of issues faced here in Canada and especially in light of the Missing Women in Canada.
As the film states
"DO SOMETHING!! "
So I share this, as I pray and hope that this helps in some way. Money is spent on security, terrorism, war but instead of feeding people in poverty, helping with drug addiction, helping with affordable housing and providing support the government turns it's back on woman, especially indigenous women.
"Raise Awareness and Help End the Epidemic of Violence against Native Women in the U.S.—Please Share this Video from the Indian Law Resource Center, www.indianlaw.org
Native women are murdered at 10 times the national rate; 1 out 3 Native women will be raped in her lifetime, and 3 out of 5 physically assaulted. Even worse, 88% of the perpetrators are non-Indian and cannot be prosecuted by tribal governments. Stand and take action now to restore safety and justice for Native women. Do Something! Visit www.indianlaw.org."
For Canada please reference these links.
"The Missing Women Commission of Inquiry closed its office on August 1, 2013."
"The budget for the RCMP investigation into 18 murdered and missing women
and girls along the so-called Highway of Tears has been slashed by 84
per cent in the last two years."
