Title Idle No More: A Movement of Dissent
Creator Melançon, Jérôme
Subject Dissent
Political ideas
Social movements
Description Idle No More is a movement of dissent insofar as it refused the reality and truth about Indigenous peoples that are imposed by the state and the majority of the settler population. In focusing on anticolonial dissent, Idle No More continues previous Indigenous movements, brings together existing movements and campaigns, and maintains open the questions of the goals to be pursued and of the means of pursuing them. The appeals to rights in Idle No More thus represent not only a judicial question but also the re-opening of political questions and the fundamental questioning of the existence of the Canadian state.
