Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Demanding justice for missing and murdered Aboriginal women, Canadian activists march in solidarity with missing aboriginal women

Hundreds of human rights activists went to the Canadian parliament on Thursday in solidarity with missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls. The rally, which was part of nationwide vigil, called for a national inquiry and an end to violence against native women.

The Native Women’s Association of Canada has documented over 600 cases of missing or murdered aboriginal women and girls from across the country in the past twenty years. These alarming rates have been a major source of concern and grief for the aboriginal community. Protestors were able to hear from family members of women who died under brutal circumstances or went missing.  PressTV
