Women’s Memorial March Today at PG Courthouse
Prince George, B.C. – The second annual Women’s Memorial March for missing and murdered aboriginal women is being held this afternoon in Prince George.
Organizer Ken Solonas says the event runs from 2 to 4 pm and begins at the Prince George courthouse. “There’s going to be speakers, performers, singers, there will be a women’s march through downtown and the RCMP will be assisting with traffic control to make sure everyone is safe.”
“Once we make it back to the courthouse there will be an open mike for people who haven’t had a chance to speak, performers once again and it will be followed by a dinner at the courthouse.”
He says speakers will include Brenda Wilson from the Highway of Tears Initiative, Angelique Levesque from Angelique’s Native Arts, a UNBC NUGGS Aboriginal representative, a CNC Students Unions women’s rep, a spokesperson for the Moosehide Campaign and others.
