Very interesting report from Al Jazeera about the Crow First Nations gathering, where they begged the question if it would actually do any for Aboriginal people or if it was just a great photo op for the Harper Government.
On July 27th, the Walk Against Nuclear Waste set out from Pinehouse, SK, to bring attention to the underhanded attempts by the Nuclear Waste Management Organization to coerce First Nations communities in northern Saskatchewan into agreeing to storing nuclear waste on their territories.
Organized by the Committee for Future Generations, the walkers are currently on track to cover a total of 820 km over the course of three weeks. They will arrive in Regina on August 15th to deliver petitions to the Saskatchewan Legislature demanding a province-wide ban on nuclear waste storage and transportation.
Please join Mother Earth Justice Advocates and other supporters at Victoria Park on the evening of Monday, August 15 to greet the walkerswith a warm welcome and to show your support for a ban on nuclear waste storage in Saskatchewan. You are invited to join the walkers on the final leg of their journey - down the Green Mile to the Legislative Building on Tuesday, August 16, beginning at 11th Ave. and Albert St. at 11am.
