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:
Sponsored by: PeaceWorks, Toronto Friends Meeting and Ontario Voice of Women for Peaceworks Canada
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
