LONDON, ON - The Idle No More movement is making its way to Windsor this week, where demonstrators are expected to target the busiest border crossing in North America.
The "Idle No More Unity Walk in Windsor" is slated for Wednesday, according to a Facebook page set up by London District Chiefs Council - which includes the communities of Aamjiwnaang and Kettle and Stony Point.
Participants are to meet in Tilbury at 9:30 a.m., where "a vehicle convoy will then proceed to the corner of Huron Church and Tecumseh roads for 11 a.m., where we will be joined by more First Nations Peoples and our supporters," reads a post from the group.
Organizers say the protest will not be an official blockade, but will slow traffic on Huron Church Rd., a key artery for commercial trucks heading to and from the border.
The goal is to cause an economic slowdown and draw attention to Aboriginals' calls that the federal government respect and uphold treaty rights.
