Fortunately, the Grassy Narrows Community is taking a stand against this injustice. On December 2nd, 2002, Grassy Narrows established a blockade on a logging road in their territory, sparking what is now the longest standing and highest profile indigenous logging blockade in Canadian history. But, three years later, logging is still taking place on remote sections of their land as the community does not have the resources to block all of the logging roads in their territory. Weyerhaeuser and Abitibi refuse to stop the logging, leave the land and respect the community’s right to self-determiniation within their traditional territory.
Please sign the petition to pledge your support to the Grassy Narrows First Nation’s struggle to stop Weyerhaeuser and Abitibi from logging without their consent on their land, and secure the right to self-determination within their traditional territory. www.FreeGrassy.org.
