Carrying signs that read “protect our women” and “stopped forced sterilization,” a group marched to the Saskatchewan Legislature on Tuesday to call for an end to coerced sterilization.

The march was organized by law firm Semaganis Worme Lombard, which is representing women in a class-action against the Government of Canada, the Saskatchewan Health Authority and other government bodies and agencies they allege forced Indigenous women to undergo sterilization.

The firm says they’ve heard reports of coerced sterilization taking place as recently as December 2018.
