“…If you want to join a June 21 demonstration against high food costs:

• in Kugluktuk, go to the community park at 6 p.m. for a peaceful protest and community rally. The Community Women’s Group is also organizing a “Feeding our Families” pot-luck feast at the campground in town, with organizers asking people to bring their favorite country food dish to share;

• in Pangnirtung, Coral Harbour, Clyde River, Igloolik and Ottawa, you can also join similar food cost protests that day. In Ottawa, the group working on the protest will meet at the Bronson Centre to compile slogans for their signs before heading over to the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill at 1 p.m..

You can learn more about the protests on the new website for “Feeding My Family,” which says “if we stand together as one, with one voice, and one message, we will make a difference to our children and our children’s children.” …”
