Prayers for Peacemakers, April 15 2015 Indigenous Peoples Solidarity
Pray for the community of Grassy Narrows and Judy Da Silva. On Friday, April 10, 2015 water protector and Elder, Josephine Mandamin, held a traditional Anishinaabe Water Ceremony on the shores of Wild Lake, near the CN railway mainline between Kenora and Grassy Narrows along with other Grassy Narrows community activists. Despite the fact the group called off a blockade of the railwayâ€”which transports toxic tar sands bitumen over local waterwaysâ€”CN still served Da Silva with an injunction against impeding trains and/or trespassing on CN property, and/or â€˜counsellingâ€™ others to do the same. The injunction will be before the court on April 16 at 10 a.m. in Kenora.

How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words,
and seek after lies? Psalm 4:2
