The effects of climate change disproportionately affect indigenous people around the world, although they contribute to it the least.

That’s one message Manitoba’s regional chief to the Assembly of First Nations has taken to Marrakech, Morocco, where leaders from around the world have gathered for the United Nations climate conference.

Kevin Hart, who co-chairs the AFN’s committee on climate and the environment, told CTV Winnipeg indigenous economies are built on a harmonious relationship with nature.

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/METRO FILE  Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, the head of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, led protesters down a muddy trail deep into the conservation area’s forest on Nov. 27, 2014, where Kinder Morgan continued work at a second injunction-protected site. Phillip, his mother and several others then crossed the police tape into the work area and were arrested by RCMP, joining more than 100 others who have been willingly arrested since police began enforcing the injunction.

Indigenous stories: Group led by UBCIC Grand Chief Stewart Phillip will sign on to do “whatever it takes” to stop pipeline.

People at a mass rally against Kinder Morgan on Saturday are expected to make a group pledge to take escalating actions if the pipeline project is approved.

The event will begin at City Hall at noon and is expected to draw hundreds of people including Indigenous, provincial and municipal leaders, as well as Green Party Leader Elizabeth May.

Unions break with AFL-CIO, protest Dakota Access Pipeline

OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - Hundreds of union members and supporters gathered outside of a Wells Fargo branch in downtown Oakland this afternoon to call on the bank to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline, an oil pipeline project in North
Dakota that has become a flash point for environmental and Native American advocates.

"No Dakota Access Pipeline, water is life," the protesters chanted as they arrived, referring to concerns that the project could pollute drinking water in the area, including on land occupied by the Standing Rock
Sioux tribe.
