Idle No More is an indigenous revolution started by three First Nations women and one woman of "settler" descent that began in the winter of 2012 in Canada. It is a movement to prevent further damage and restore Mother Earth, as well as to prevent further damage to indigenous communities. It has become a global movement primarily led by women.
Idle No More SF Bay has been active since March of 2013 and is an affinity group which organizes actions in the Bay Area and meets regularly. Nonviolent actions have been conducted at Richmond Chevron, Kinder Morgan in Richmond, Canadian Consulate in San Francisco, and other corporate facilities which are harming Mother Earth. Our actions include prayer, teach-ins, a round dance and sometimes choosing to risk arrest. All who have a commitment to nonviolence are welcome to attend our actions. Members of our group are very involved in the local activist community.
