Join the OPSEU/SEFPO Indigenous Circle and Grassy Narrows leaders to demand mercury justice!

Indigenous Circle / Cercle des autochtones

On Thursday, July 21, at noon, Grassy Narrows leaders, youth and community members will rally at Queen’s Park to raise awareness of mercury poisoning at Grassy Narrows First Nation – and to demand justice and freedom.

The people of Grassy Narrows have been powerful leaders in the movement for Indigenous sovereignty and environmental justice. They’ve shown that, together, we can fight for justice against all odds – and make real, meaningful gains.

But so much more remains to be done to right the wrong of mercury poisoning in Grassy Narrows. Community members and leaders have traveled from Grassy Narrows to Toronto to demand that Ontario and Canada:

  • Compensate everyone in Grassy Narrows fairly for the mercury crisis.
  • Respect the Grassy Narrows Indigenous Protected Area (end mining and logging plans in Grassy Narrows territory).
  • Support Grassy Narrows in restoring their community and way of life from the damage that mercury has done.

Show Grassy Narrows you stand with them in this vital fight. Join the OPSEU/SEFPO Indigenous Circle on July 21 and share this event with everyone you know. Sign up now at
