We are in Winnipeg on The Forks grounds, behind the Canadian Museum of Human Rights.
Camp Marcedes was established to honour Marcedes Myran and draw attention to the injustice and human rights violations committed by the Manitoba Provincial Government.
We captured this photo from the lookout inside the Museum of Human Rights. The museum supports our location and recognizes that human rights violations are occurring due to the failure of the Manitoba government to support the search effort.
Mural Commemorating Manitoba Landfill Victims and Raising Awareness of Government Inaction
A Winnipeg-based artist, Anjie Valgardson, in collaboration with Camp Marcedes family and Elders, created this mural with the approval of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights as a gift to affected families. The mural aims at raising awareness about the injustices resulting from the Manitoba government's failure to act. The outer portion of the mural features hashtags that pedestrians can follow for more information. The memorial section, in red, recognizes the names of loved ones associated with The Brady and Prairie Green landfills. The inner circle represents Turtle Island and the diversity of those who call it home. The mural's center holds the International symbol for Human Rights. In the picture is Jordan Myran, the sister of Marcedes Myran, and artist Anjie Valgardson.
