January 28th Idle No More Day of Action:
The General Plan
We will meet at Jackson Square Mall (food court area, perhaps?) for a flash mob round dance.
These seem to build some amazing energy and strength, and draw great attention from onlookers so they’re a good opportunity for outreach as well. If anyone can help with leafleting during this part, please let us know!
We will then march through the mall to an exit, continuing to do outreach (a noisy or a silent march…?) and then out onto the streets where we will continue our march. (It’s supposed to be much warmer than it has been!)
If anyone has any ideas of (brief) march routes etc. please speak up!
We also thought about possibly doing another round dance (or something) at an intersection – again, hopefully doing some outreach to the stopped vehicles.
