Greetings to you all!
The work of protecting the lands, waters, air, and the lives of all future generations continues. We have been honored to be asked to go to the Protect the Mother Earth Conference in the state of Washington, USA to speak regarding our experience with the impacts of uranium mining in northern Saskatchewan. This is an outdoor, feet on the land, event so we are driving there. We need your help and financial support for this journey. We will be leaving on June 25, 2018. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently traveled to Kamloops in Stk’emlupsemc Te Secwepemc Nation for a North America wide meeting about resource extraction impacts and resistance.
The stories are similar to ours in northern Saskatchewan, where the uranium mining industry has used its industrial colonial method of keeping indigenous people poor and in crisis to access indigenous lands. The one outstanding difference came from the Stk’emlupsemc Te Secwepemc Nation. They re-established the positions of family representatives outside of the elected Band government and created their own Environmental Review Panel to assess the impacts and benefits of a large mine project. They examined the project thoroughly using both science-based and traditional knowledge and did the assessment through their own cultural perspective. This thorough approach resulted in a solid rejection of the project. This rejection was supported by the City of Kamloops and since then by the B.C. Government.
As people of the land, it is absolutely imperative, that we set the environmental standards and make the decisions on land/water use and development in our remaining territories. Industrial colonialism is setting up to take all resource from our lands in the next few decades. Although they declare that this will have low impact on aboriginal rights to hunt, trap, or fish, this is not the reality. The “rights” are protected. A place, a land-base, a Nation, will very soon be so occupied and contaminated there will be nowhere to practice those “rights”.
We cannot look to system leaders to protect the Nations. It is the Duty of each of us to take back our voices and use them to make the decisions as real stewards to protect the lands, air, water, the living Earth, since they cannot or dare not. For the sake of future generations WE must.

Your support will help us keep the black rock in the ground.

Hello FB Friends,

As quickly as the winds whipped the leaves from the trees up here in northern Saskatchewan time is flying past. The resource extraction industries take no breaks and neither can we. We are heavily out-resourced to take on protecting the land, air and water but we must do all that we can. We are half to reaching our target on this campaign. Anything you can do to help will make a difference. Thank you
