Mr. Harper may relent, scared of the political fallout from letting this great leader die. I dearly hope he does. I want Chief Spence to eat. But I won’t soon forget this clash between these two very different kinds of resolve, one so sealed off, closed in; the other cracked wide open, a conduit for the pain of the world.

But Chief Spence’s hunger is not just speaking to Mr. Harper. It is also speaking to all of us, telling us that the time for bitching and moaning is over. Now is the time to act, to stand strong and unbending for the people, places and principles that we love.

Naomi Klein, Idle No More: Chief Theresa Spence’s hunger speaks to all of us | December 24, 2012

It’s festive and lovely and I don’t mean to take away from any of that, but please remember this leader of a people, now about to enter 15th day of her hunger strike for the sake of our democracy, to meet with the man who wants to change the lives of so many for the worse
