Update on September 08, 2012

For your information - I did sent Honorable Harper this letter with no response. I am hoping that a human rights petition puts pressure on Canada to address the issues native women face on a daily basis from child care issues to voting rights and self-governing issues. Native women with Status Rights face 3 things when they wake up in the morning that work against them in society; 1) being a woman, 2) being poor 3) being a woman of color, Native women would like human rights within a society that bases their political structure around freedom, peace and equal opportunity. Native women are hunted down and murdered in Canada and the statistics are growing. Native women lose their children to foster care at an alarming rate - because of poverty and related issues of poverty. Its time to wake up to the real issues - and yes, it is defined as racism according to Human Rights and it is systemic terrorism toward native women when everyone turns a blind eye to the issues of Missing and Murdered Native Women; according to the definition of terror. Please support our right to be treated with dignity. Huy Ch Qu Sharon,
