Aamjiwnaang has been described as the most toxic place in North America. Activists on this reserve near Sarnia, surrounded by Chemical Valley are taking on the industry’s giants to fight for their community’s future.

It’s a fight for all of our future. For clean air, and water we can drink. For community values over corporate profit-making. Learn about the daily realities of life in Aamjiwnaang and hear the story of the blockade of the CN rail line that lasted for 13 days. Real News video:
