A camp, Justice For our Stolen Children, was set up 111 days ago in Wascana Park in Regina outside the Legislature to pressure the government to fix systemic problems in the justice system which have led to widely publicized cases of injustice regarding indigenous victims of violence. Today Regina Police arrested peaceful protesters who refused to leave the park, and the government refused to meet with the protesters aside from telling them to leave so the grass wouldn’t die.
“Telling them to leave so the grass won’t die. That’s horrible.”
It is, especially since on the other side of the park, they’re cutting down old-growth trees to make way for development for a bank.
