Assembly of First Nations of Quebec and Labrador

WENDAKE, QC, Aug. 31, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Following the cancellation of the National Energy Board's (NEB) public proceedings inMontreal on the Energy East Project, the Assembly of First Nations Quebec- Labrador (AFNQL) believes that it is more than time to put an end to this process, which raises serious doubts about its integrity, or even its legitimacy. It is time to rethink this process in depth, in collaboration with First Nations and as requested by the AFNQL since the beginning.

Near Cannon Ball, N.D. — It is a spectacular sight: thousands of Indians camped on the banks of the Cannonball River, on the edge of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. Our elders of the Seven Council Fires, as the Oceti Sakowin, or Great Sioux Nation, is known, sit in deliberation and prayer, awaiting a federal court decision on whether construction of a $3.7 billion oil pipeline from the Bakken region to Southern Illinois will be halted.

Amidst the cries of "protect our water, protect our land, protect our peoples," Native Americans, ranchers and farmers are standing their ground along a highway in North Dakota. They are blocking the crews of Energy Transfer Partners -- a Dallas-based company whose workers are protected by both police and armed, private security personnel -- from accessing the site of the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Dear Climate Rebels, This is from Brad Hornick. I am writing to you as an original organizer for Climate Convergence. The original vision of Convergence was about creating not an "organization" but a "movement" based on radical democratic principles and with the desire to maintain a strong and explicitly anti-capitalist, anti-colonial and anti-patriarchal approach to organizing. These aims are written into the Convergence "Points of Unity".

The devastating fires in Fort McMurray show the urgent need to transition to an economy that supports people and the planet, and this is part of a transition in climate justice politics.
