Collective Outrage. Unified Voice. Power of Communities.
From St. John’s to Victoria, hundreds across Canada gathered and marched on Thursday, April 2nd calling for justice for Cindy Gladue and all missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
In over 22 places communities expressed collective outrage over the acquittal of Bradley Barton, who walked free of both murder and manslaughter convictions on March 18th after being tried by a jury in Edmonton.
Community organizing for Cindy Gladue across the country and collective outrage influenced Edmonton with its people power. Crown prosecutors in Alberta filed an appeal late Wednesday afternoon, asserting that Justice Robert Graesser erred in his understanding of motive, manslaughter, admissible evidence, and consent.
We will continue watching Edmonton.
We want justice for Cindy Glaude!
We want justice for all missing and murdered Indigenous Women!
