Sylvia McAdam is one of the co-founders of Idle No More, a movement which originated in response to the Canadian Omnibus Bill C-45, a controversial piece of legislation which opens up previously protected waters and land to corporations. In this interview, Sylvia discusses the movement’s origins and goals, responds to media speculation that there are ‘divisions’ amongst its leaders, and outlines the painful and horrifying history of Native American mistreatment at the hands of European settlers, and subsequent North American governments.

BONUS: This episode also contains interviews with supporters at the February 23rd rally in Union Square, NY that marked Bradley Manning’s 1000th day in captivity without trial.

A great episode as ever so check it out, subscribe on iTunes, share with all your friends and peace!
