Grassy Narrows community marks 10-year anniversary of blockade| December 4, 2012
On Monday, Grassy Narrows Blockaders peacefully picketed a massive logging operation on the Caution Lake Road, 30 km north of the trans-Canada highway off Highway 671 near Kenora.
The action fell on the 10-year anniversary of Grassy Narrows' Slant Lake blockade, now the longest running Indigenous logging blockade in Canadian history.
The industrial logging operation supplies Weyerhaeuser's Trus Joist mill in Kenora.
Weyerhaeuser is the only multi-national logging company in the region that refuses to commit to respecting Grassy Narrows' right to say 'no' to logging.
Grassy Narrows has called for a boycott of Weyerhaeuser products.
