Homelessness, Lubicon Cree, and AGM

Hirsch Greenberg talks about the Regina Homelessness Initiative today at noon on Human Rights Radio.  On Good Friday, we’ll be presenting Amnesty’s newest documentary on the plight of the Lubicon Cree entitled “Our Land, My People”.  You can see the video on Youtube, but the 26 minute sound track easily stands alone and tells the decades long story of the Lubicon Cree’s struggle for justice.  The Harper government has stated in the most recent throne speech that it intends to “take steps to endorse” the UN declaration on the rights of indigenous people.  If they are serious about this, they need to address the Lubicon Cree issue quickly and fairly.  We hope to seen progress soon.

Last night Saskatchewan Amnesty Group 91 held its AGM.  U of R Associate Professor Darlene Juschka was scheduled give a presentation but was prevented by illness.  Yasman Soofi graciously agreed on short notice to give us a presentation on the human rights situation in Iran.  Lively discussion followed as well as election of new executive.  Look for new developments on our Amnesty Saskatchewan webpage.
