New Hampshire Activists led by Native American organizers to hold vigil in solidarity with Native Nations March in Washington DC
New Hampshire activists will gather for a Candlelight Vigil in solidarity with the upcoming Native Nations March in Washington D.C. at City Plaza in Concord on Friday March 10th from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
Attendees will join with others across the country on this day of peaceful action in solidarity calling for Indigenous People’s Rights, for honoring treaties and for protecting the water.
There will be a Drum Circle and extra candles will be provided for those who need them.
This event is being led by NH indigenous organizer Sterling Chase. Co-sponsors of the event include: NH Peace Action; Standing with Standing Rock NH, Reparations Working Group; Building a Culture of Peace Forum; and Pace e Bene.
Chase remarked “For many of us in the Native American community, watching our brothers in sisters in Standing Rock as they were forced out of their encampment was heartbreaking; but the hurt goes beyond our community and those in solidarity with us. The Dakota Access Pipeline puts the drinking water of a third of this country at risk, and will serve to hasten the catastrophic destruction of our planet due to global warming. We are here to call for the US government to respect indigenous people’s rights, to protect its citizenry, and to honor its treaties.”
