FSIN supports Indigenous teepee protest outside Saskatchewan legislature

Last Updated Jun 22, 2018 at 4:40 pm MST

REGINA – The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations is showing support for protesters who have set up a teepee again outside of the Saskatchewan legislature.

People put up the teepee Thursday, a few days after the government ordered it taken down and police arrested some of the protesters.

The Justice for our Stolen Children camp was set up in February after the acquittals of Gerald Stanley in the fatal shooting of Colten Boushie and Raymond Cormier in the death of Manitoba teen Tina Fontaine.

Both victims were Indigenous.

Protest supporter Prescott Demas says they want a meeting with the government and FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron says he will help make it happen.

Justice Minister Don Morgan says the eviction notice the government gave the protesters earlier this month is still in effect. (CJME, CKRM, CJWW, The Canadian Press)
