Put human rights ahead of greed

To the Editor,

Re: Idle No More protest set for Maffeo Sutton, Jan. 8.

The Idle No More movement is seeking justice in human rights.

To be denied a basic standard of living in regard to sanitation, housing, health care and education is nothing short of a subtle genocide implemented by those who have power in government.

As fellow Canadians we need to support and be part of this movement, for the destruction of a sustainable environment by the profits-first  attitude of corporate industries is happening at an accelerated speed.

If we care about future generations we will have integrity to stand with those in the Idle No More movement.
