Climate Change Fires in BC - Indigenous Responses to Colonial Tactics

The show opens with a quick review of the upcoming supreme court decision on the lack of consultation with Chippewas of the Thames First Nation regarding the line 9 pipeline. We then shift to the climate change induced fires in BC and Indigenous defiance to evacuation orders, including Secwepemc demands for pipeline shutdowns, and Tl’etinqox defiance to evacuate despite threats from the RCMP of seizing children, and successful defense against the fire.

Grassy Narrows River Run 2016: Healthy river, healthy people!

To all land defenders and indigenous justice allies,

 
Please join us in Toronto at Queen's Park on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 12 noon to join Grassy Narrows in demanding Kathleen Wynne take action!
The Anishnaabe community of Asubpeeschoseewagong (Grassy Narrows) has asserted its sovereignty over its traditional territories (north of Kenora, ON) for time immemorial. The Women's Drum Group in that community has successfully maintained the longest-running blockade of illegal logging in Canadian history, all through the leadership of grandmothers and women. 
 
Grassy Narrows, as many of you will know, is well known for something else - the dumping of murderous amounts of mercury into its watershed by local pulp mills in the 1960s, which triggered an ongoing health crisis that the Ontario government has never responsibly addressed. 
 
This spring, members of the Grassy Narrows community will be traveling 1700 km to Toronto to demand that Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario government take action to clean up the rivers they allowed to be poisoned (and took no action to remedy). This will be the fourth River Run, a mass action in Toronto to assert Grassy Narrows' sovereignty and demand accountability from the Ontario government.
 
Please join us in Toronto at Queen's Park on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 12 noon. Lunch will be provided - please let us know of any accessibility or other needs. Please visit the Facebook page for the event here. There will be speaking events in Toronto during the week building up to the mass action at Queen's Park. 
 
If you are travelling from outside of Toronto, please organize a local contingent! We can provide some material support to help you get to Toronto, if needed. Please email nathan.prier@gmail.com with any questions you might have.
 
 
In solidarity,
 
 
The Grassy Narrows River Run 2016 Support Committee

facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/536505619701012/

2013 is the 400th anniversary of the "Two Row Wampum Belt" - the Gushwenta - and represents the oldest living treaty between Haudenosaunee folks and settlers. It is the foundation for a relationship of peace, respect, and friendship as well as non-interference. We hope to educate settlers in the area about the Two Row and celebrate a relationship based upon honouring treaties.
