Victoria Island, Ottawa, Friday May 20th
Two Anishinawbe Grandmothers, and a group of Anishinawbe Women and Men have taken action regarding the water issue by walking the perimeter of the Great Lakes.
Along with a group of Anishinabe-que and supports, they walked around Lake Superior in Spring 2003, around Lake Michigan in 2004, Lake Huron in 2005, Lake Ontario in 2006, Lake Erie in 2007, Lake Michigan in 2008, and St Lawrence River in 2009.
The purpose is to raise awareness about water. In the 2011 water walk, organizers want to challenge the corporate profit of water and that governments need to ensure that poor people can afford water.
