Idle No More comes to UVic


The Martlet was there to cover the Idle No More Rally at UVic on the afternoon of Jan. 10, which took place at the bus loop. With the buses temporarily re-routed from the loop, protesters, supporters and onlookers took in the speeches, drum and dance performances of the two-hour rally.

The Martlet also spoke with Jarrett Martineau, a PhD student in Indigenous Governance at UVic, about why the rally was held at UVic, his feelings about the movement and his thoughts on Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence.
