Rights violations nothing new
Human Rights Watch Canada has released a report which substantiates long-held claims by indigenous women regarding the historic mistreatment towards them by the RCMP.
This is “old news”.
B.C. reserve community members and the urban indigenous populations in northern B.C. have long acknowledged the systemic racism and violence directed toward all “First Nation” peoples.
Sadly, the victimization of indigenous women is surpassed by the victimization experienced by indigenous men. Violence by men towards other men within Canada is alarming and this statistic surpasses the “norm”.
The local RCMP “drunk tank” jails indigenous men at an unprecedented rate. It seems that urban indigenous men comprise 100 per cent of vagrant alcoholics and addicts, drug dealers and “crackheads”, shoplifters and thieves in Prince Rupert.
The RCMP lacks any moral or ethical accountability in this community and towards our collective urban
I am sure the NGO “hipsters and social scientists” in this community have to recognize this!
As an active member of IDLE NO MORE PR, I am proposing the formation of a community watchdog committee to “unlock” and reveal the machinations of seemingly “berserk” inequalities directed toward all indigenous people.
