REMOVE PICTURES OF NATIVE CHILDREN ON DISPLAY
We protest the display of pictures portraying Native children in the Charles Camsell Hospital, on display at the Royal Alexandra Hospital. We find it shameful and abhorrent that a hospital would display pictures of people against whom atrocities have been committed, at a place where children have died. They hurt the dignity and the horrible pain the Native people went through. Do not glorify a past that was cruel and abusive. A quote about abuse at the Charles Camsell Hospital: In June of 2003, Kevin Annett who has been working to expose the Residential School Abuse and experiments in Canada on native children spoke of medical experimentation at the Charles Camsell Hospital in Edmonton. The Camsell Hospital operating with federal government funds and protection was a notorious place where native children from Alberta and northern British Columbia were surgically sterilized and subjected to involuntary experiments. Kevin's interviews of some of these unfortunate victims show us a picture of young children who were forced to carry bodies of dead kids out of the Camsell hospital to a secret burial site on the hospital grounds. Afterwards they were subjected to electric shocks to fog their memory of the dead children.
