If rain on your wedding day is good luck, then snow on the day of the Native Nations Rise march in Washington, D.C. on March 10, served as a sign of hope in the fight for indigenous rights across the United States and around the world—especially when the battle at stake stems on the sanctity of water.
About 600 people joined the march against the WA government’s plans for the future of the state’s 247 remote Aboriginal communities

A protest against the closure of remote Aboriginal communities blocked streets in central Sydney on Sunday, as about 600 people marched against the Western Australian government’s plans to wind back support for communities it deems aren’t viable.
The protest began at Town Hall at 1pm on Sunday and moved toward The Block in Redfern, closing George, Lee, Regent and Lawson Streets on the way.
