Hunger Strike – Day 38
Pleas to Top Canadian Officials Urged on Chief Spence's Behalf

VICTORIA ISLAND, OTTAWA, CANADA – In what may be the beginning to a tragic end of life for Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, information coming from an unnamed source tells Native News Network that Chief Spence is experiencing low blood sugar, dizziness, a slow heart beat and chest pains.
Chief Spence has been on a sacrificial hunger strike since December 11, 2012. Today marks Day 38 of her hunger strike.
People across Canada – and elsewhere – are being asked to send prayers for Chief Spence and to write or call Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Governor General David Johnston's offices to plea with these two top Canadian officials to grant Chief Spence her wishes for a meeting with both of them and First Nations chiefs.
“Since the beginning of my journey in this hunger strike, I've remained consistent in my request for a meeting between all parties to Treaty. This would include Chiefs, the Governor General and the Prime Minister,” commented Chief Spence in a news release earlier this week issued by the Attawapiskat First Nation.
“Chief Spence is physically not doing too well so we must united as First Nations people and keep the momentum of the movement going strong… Time is precious. We CANNOT let her die,” stated Angela Bercier, Ojibwe.
“Chief Theresa Spence is getting weaker every day and time is running out,” said Claudia Julien, Metis-Wabanaki Confederacy.
“Please take a moment to send a letter to the prime minister and governor general. This is the future of our children and grandchildren.”
