On Thursday, November 3, more than 400 people gathered in Greater Sudbury, Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation territory, in solidarity with Standing Rock.

From the Facebook Event:  “This event is a call out for those wanting to come together in peace and friendship to show support and solidarity for the land defenders and water protectors at Standing Rock who are facing increasing violence and repression at the hands of the colonial authorities. We need to stand up for these and all land defenders and water protectors being persecuted because they are at the service of Mother Earth and ultimately, all of us. This is our opportunity in this territory to make a statement and send a message to the powers that be; we are paying attention to what is happening in Sioux Territory and we won’t be silent. The World is Watching.”

Thank you to Richard Lemieux, Ann Lamarche, Sarah Byers, and AGR Photos for permitting their photos to be posted here.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op is creating independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media. Contact the Sudbury Working Group at grassrootssudburymedia@gmail.com or follow us on Facebook.

Support local grassroots media - get a membership! Our goal is to raise $2000 per year to pay local writers for local content and support emerging writers.  Help us reach that goal.  Download a membership form here

We are able to pay for a limited number of strong local pieces.  Contact us to pitch an idea, or for story ideas.

We encourage local grassroots groups to submit content about their work, issues and events.  We also have resources available to help grassroots groups get their message out.  Find out more here.
