Prayers for Peacemakers, April 15 2015 Indigenous Peoples
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 railway—which transports toxic tar sands bitumen over local
waterways—CN still served Da Silva with an injunction against impeding trains
and/or trespassing on CN property, and/or ‘counselling’ others to do the same.
The injunction will be before the court on April 16 at 10 a.m. in Kenora.
