TAKE THE PLEDGE
Stand with Neskantaga Nation
Ontario is in a rush to develop the controversial Ring of Fire. Now, Neskantaga Nation stand in the path of that mining expansion, demanding their rights be respected after decades of government neglect.
After 25 years without clean water, Neskantaga are headed to court to carry out their duty to protect the Attawapiskat River watershed. The Anishinaabe Nation are challenging the government over the major mining road being built to the “Ring of Fire”, which will fragment intact boreal ecosystems and bisect their territory.
While hundreds of millions of dollars are being mustered for the complex mining infrastructure, the stewards of the lands and waters of this boreal region have been persistently denied the basic necessities of life. Small, remote, but determined: Neskantaga need to know they have allies in their struggle.
Sign the Pledge and let Neskantaga Nation know that you stand with them in their legal action.
