Toronto Women’s Day March demands justice for Tina Fontaine

Film length: 14:11 Toronto always has one of the largest marches in the world to commemorate International Women’s Day and this year was no exception – a powerful, angry march demanding justice for First Nations 15 year old Tina Fontaine, murdered after Child and Family Services put her up ALONE in an hotel. Disgracefully, Tina’s case is just one of up to 4,000 indigenous women and girls who have been murdered and disappeared without any justice. But there is now a huge movement building to change that, led by young women such as 16 year old Madyson Arscott, who organised the rally at the end of the march. Amongst the many other campaigns on the march were justice campaigns for murdered Honduran activist Berta Caceres, for Philipine temporary workers, for the female Kurdish fighters of Rojava, RECE workers fighting for decent pay and Fight for 15 and Fairness.
