Idle No More: Canada's Aboriginals find a collective voice

The Idle No More protests sweeping the nation may have been a longtime coming, but First Nations' words have never been idle.

In Megaphone Issue #121 we take a community perspective on the grassroots movement that has swept the country by featuring poetry from First Nations participants in our Downtown Eastside writing workshops, expressing fear, anger, pride, and most of all hope that a better life is close at hand.

Also in this issue: the Surrey Urban Mission shuts down most services for people experiencing homelessness as the Mission itself becomes homeless this month; why murdered Big Issue vendor Ian Watson-Gladwish loved selling street papers; Megaphone vendor Bob talks about the lasting negative affects bullying had on him; the Vancouver Public Library's Inspiration Pass becomes too popular among low-income Vancouverites; horoscopes, arts listings, and more!
