Grassy Narrows First Nation was polluted with 9 tonnes of mercury in the 1960s and 94% of current residents receive zero support for their ongoing mercury poisoning. Their struggle is one of the clearest examples of what real, tangible Reconciliation means in Canada today. Walk with Grassy Narrows community members to show that you are with them at this critical moment to achieve mercury justice!
Forty members of Grassy Narrows are making the 1,700km trip to Toronto and we want to support them by making this year’s rally the biggest yet. Join our First Nations Solidarity Working Group and other CUPE3903 members at the River Run (look for our flags)! For more information check out the River Run 2019 Facebook page.
Members can also contact Stuart Schussler if they have accessibility questions or other concerns.
