Video: Idle No More and PSAC defenders of fairness

One year ago, PSAC stood together with the Idle No More movement to defend our lands and our country.

In the Prairies, we teamed up with William Singer III, a First Nations artist and activist who has been instrumental to the movement in Lethbridge and surrounding areas, to produce a special Idle No More button.

Now, we’re looking back at the historic movement with the next video in our PSAC Prairies Video Project. PSAC members and activists share their stories and discuss why the Idle No More movement and labour movement work so well together as allies.

“I see Idle No more and PSAC both as defenders of fairness,” says Shannan Little, Human Rights Rep for PSAC/Agriculture Local 30048. “Anyone that defends fairness or what is right and stands up for people that need someone to stand up for them is someone I want to call my friend and ally.”

The Prairies Video project was produced with union labour: Road Dog Media, UNIFOR – Canadian Freelance Union Local 2040. It was awarded the  for “Best narrative video, or video series documentary”. View all videos from the series on our YouTube channel.
