(en) Canada, Collectif Emma Goldman -[Nitassinan]Vigil "Justice for Joyce Echaquan"! (de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 6 Oct 2020 07:29:32 +0300

This Tuesday, September 29, 2020, more than fifty Indigenous and non-Indigenous people gathered at the Native Friendship Center on the unceded territory of Nitassinan (so-called "Saguenay") in order to reflect after the death of Joyce Echaquan, a young Atikamekw from Manawan. The day before, the latter died in Joliette hospital under racist comments from nursing staff during a Facebook live. The invitation to the vigil was launched by the Saguenay Native Friendship Center. During the event, there was prayer and chanting as a banner, inscribed with "Justice for Joyce," enthroned above the improvised stage. ---- The context surrounding Joyce Echaquan's death leaves no doubt as to the relevance of bringing the fight against systemic racism back to the fore. Governments can no longer ignore the appeals of Aboriginal communities on the treatment reserved for them by Quebec and Canadian societies. In recent years, several surveys have shown that the Canadian health care system is plagued by systemic racism. Indigenous people face discrimination, racism and prejudice by hospital staff. The testimonies are legion and demonstrate, for example, the mistreatment suffered by the members of the First Nations: emergency room employees "playing" at guessing the alcohol level in the blood of native patients (who had not necessarily consumed alcoholic beverages) or nurses who do not believe the symptoms or the symptoms. ailments of native patients trying to explain their situation to them. Systemic racism, which affects all sectors of society, must be fought. We must build an anti-racist and inclusive society. For non-Aboriginals, this means listening to Aboriginals and their groups already in struggle. Learn about their reality and be accomplices and allies in the fight for the abolition of systemic racism and colonialism!

Justice for First Nations People!

Justice for Joyce!
