What’s been brought up re #IdleNoMore is what the Canadian cousins are saying about the unresolved issues. It’s even harder to get access to what the “southern” cousins in the United States and pan “Latin America” are saying as the genocide and marginalization programs have been so successful. However, stay tuned and expect to directly hear more from folks themselves as clearly they aren’t going away! ;-)
You may have been following the liveblogging of Portland, Oregon’s latest military-style evictions conducted by Portland’s police union, Multnomah County police and others (unmarked vehicles observed at the event) which occured on October 30, 2012 at the Williams’ home in the South East quadrant of the City.

But in a shift, according to activists with We Are Oregon, deputies seemed to be trying to subvert the same rapid-response network of sympathizers who showed up last week. Angus Maguire, spokesman for the group, said deputies in unmarked cars waited until Will Sirotak left the house with his granddaughter and then tailed him, even detaining him briefly, before knocking on the door of the home. Eventually, both the home’s front and back doors were broken down and Heather Sirotak was escorted out while still in her pajamas—her phone, which she was using to call supporters, having been taken away.
