3,000 First Nations women missing

"Over 3,000 of our women, of us as a people, have gone missing without a word," he said. "There's no front page for our missing women." The above is a direct quote from the May 30 Vancouver 24 Hours. David Dennis, vice-president of the United Native Nations society, was speaking at a rally, on May 29 outside the Vancouver Art Gallery for A National Day of Action in Support of First Nations. He also spoke of young First Nations men being criminalized, and of the 'systematic poverty plaguing aboriginals in the shadow of the 2010 games', to use the words in the report. The front page story of the day was about how to get through to Seth Rogen for an interview, in case you were interested. I feel sick.
