Aboriginal protesters occupy federal offices across Canada, demanding Trudeau visit Attawapiskat | National Post: A group of about 30 people first occupied the Toronto building around 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning, police said. More than 30 hours into the protest, it continues to be peaceful, police said. A second group of activists staged a sit-in in the Winnipeg INAC office Thursday evening.

Maanii Oakes, a protester in the group occupying the office said the group is disappointed to not have received a response from the federal government.

“We thought this was going to be a one-hour action,” Oakes said. “Unfortunately by the response we got that Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau would not be there…it seemed as if INAC was not the best option for First Nations people and we needed to be here to pressure him to come to Attawapiskat.”
