Russ Diabo for National Chief

Support Russ Diabo's "Truth Before Reconciliation" platform and "Bannock and Bologna Tour" campaign:

I’ve called my campaign “Truth Before Reconciliation” because I don’t believe the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and its Calls to Action are sufficient to address the colonization that we have historically experienced and which continues today particularly under the colonial policies and legislation passed under the Constitution Act 1867. 

My 6 point platform includes:

1.  Protection of Mother Earth, Lands, Waters and Climate is consistent with Our Original Instructions from the Creator

2.  Implementation of First Nation self-determination must be based on Treaty and Aboriginal rights, and consistent with international standards and principles

3.  Our land and resources are the key to first nation renewal

4.  Empowerment of our children and youth  

5.  Protection of our women and girls

6.  Nation building and reform of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) 

Bannock and Bologna Tour:

The cross-country "Bannock and Bologna Tour" is in reference to the old style politics of leaders like George Manuel who used their own money for gas and were fed by the grassroots people along the way in their organizing drives in the 1950's and 1960's.  Diabo states "George Manuel, as a regional organizer, as an early National Chief, and as head of the World Council of Indigenous Peoples, advanced our cause in a dramatic way because he was uncompromising in our right to our lands and to our self-determination as Peoples.  This is the spirit we have to return to if we are going to get fundamental change for our Peoples".    

Diabo will be visiting First Nations communities and speaking to Chiefs and Councillors, as well as the grassroots, across the country.  You can follow the tour's progress on his Facebook page "Russell Diabo for AFN National Chief" and through his official campaign Twitter account @truthcampaign2
