Just got off a Webinar at the Idle No More website called “Indigenous Sovereignty is CLIMATE ACTION” where we heard from a number of indigenous women who are working on issues like Food Sovereignty, Organizing in Montreal and Tours of Toxic Oil and Gas Sites in Aamjiwnaang First Nation, Canada’s toxic Chemical Valley.
Excited to hear about the Toxic Tours.
“Experience a closer look at Canada’s Chemical Valley! Behold one of the oldest and most toxic petrochemical industries on Turtle Island! Come witness firsthand Chemical Valley’s devastation of Anishinaabek Territory, located near Sarnia, Ontario, one of the growing number of Canadian cities to recently declare a climate emergency! Climate crisis is now! This is your chance to visit the birthplace of Canada’s obsession with oil and home of environmental racism that hosts 40% of Canada’s petrochemical industry!”
As we begin to conceptualize our Caring Currency for this Cultural Commons we are looking for ways that Settler Allies who participate on this commons and earn Caring Currency can redeem them. We hope to be able to connect with organizations like the
to set up an exchange in the near future. In this way Settler Allies can increase their knowledge of Indigenous Ways, Laws and Customs while supporting Indigenous #Sovereignty. In the meantime, visit their websites, including a sister site on their Land and Refinery Project to become more informed. Support this CLIMATE ACTION by sharing this information thru your social networks.
