URGENT: Callout for donations to the Barriere Lake Legal Defense Fund, Help the Algonquins of Barriere Lake Protect Their Land and Way of Life!
The injunction case is at a critical point. The Algonquins of Barriere Lake currently do not have the funds to proceed, and need to raise a substantial amount of legal fees by Thursday March 14th to go ahead with the case. Resolute and the Crown have been able to push a definition of consultation that ignores native land use and that does not require the free, prior and informed consent of the community. At the same time, the community is facing the threat of mining exploration on their traditional territory by Copper One.
We are calling on supporters to donate generously to ensure the community has enough resources to proceed and fight this injunction, or to at least minimize the damage Resolute and the Quebec government have already caused.
