The city of Ottawa, capital of Canada, site of Canada’s Federal Parliament, was built and exists on stolen Algonquin land.  In this march, we will be exploring Canada’s historic and ongoing existence as a colonial state and celebrating Indigenous Sovereignty and resistance to colonialism.

The landscape, the buildings and institutions in Ottawa are a direct and physical legacy of European colonialism.  It is essential that we remember this history and that we work to transform our colonial present into a decolonial future.

We will be starting the march at the Hudson’s Bay Company Corporation, walking to Parliament Hill and ending the rally at Victoria Island.
