March in Milwaukee

On January 18, about 100 Idle No More demonstrators marched down Wisconsin Ave. in Milwaukee during the noon hour. Starting at the Federal Building and marching to Veterans Park on the shores of Lake Michigan. While Peace Action Wisconsin was a co-sponsor of the event, participants were nearly all Native peoples. The Oneida Nation was the most prominent (flying their official flag, among others), but someone was there with a Flathead Nation banner too.

In addition to expressing solidarity with the Canadian First Nations, the march also emphasized "protection of the land and water" by opposing the easing of environmental protection standards to allow Gogebic Taconite to restart iron mining near Lake Superior.
