Twitter is in flames after news spread of another indigenous man being murdered at the hands of the police. This is the second time an indigenous person has been shot in New Brunswick this week. The indigenous community and supporters are very emotional and demanding answers.
Community advocate Shireen Ahmed alleges the man was unarmed and “murdered”. She, like many others on Twitter, are visibly heartbroken.
This is a picture of the victim – Rodney Levi and what appears to be his son. Unfortunately, Rodney won’t be able to take care of his son, who will now grow up without a father.
Toronto and the rest of Canada are already very angry about the death of Regis Paquet and the savage beating of Chief Allan Adam. This situation will likely add fuel to the fire.
The beginning of 2020 saw intense direct action from indigenous peoples and climate change activists, so it is likely this will further aggravate tensions.
How do you feel about this situation? Take the survey!
