One way to decolonize this Canada Day 27.6.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Doreen Nicoll In 2017, I wrote that I would not be celebrating  Canada's 150th birthday . Instead, I encouraged settlers to read, watch, or listen to an Indigenous viewpoint each week for the rest of the year in order to work towards meaningful reconciliation with the true founding Nations of this land. Then, in 2018, I checked in to see how settlers were doing and to offer a list of books, documentaries, movies and music that could help them on their  truth and reconciliation  journey. Well, July 1 is here again and I'm still unable to celebrate Canada's birthday so long as celebrations ignore the reality that the creation of this nation meant the demise of the Indigenous nations that were living and thriving here for generations before first contact and colonization. And because Canada and Canadians continue to journey down a path that fails to acknowledge our history of genocide, systemic racism, broken treaties, and dearth of meaningful remedial action that's needed before true reconciliation can ...

How the water justice movement is challenging extractivism in Canada 11.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Emma Lui I recently gave a  keynote presentation about the water justice movement's fight against commodification and extractivism at the Perspectives of Power conference organized by the Institute of Political Economy at Carleton University. This blog is part two of a three-part blog series based on my presentation ( read part one here ). It gives an overview of some water justice issues and how grassroots groups, Indigenous nations, communities and organizations are working to protect water.  In Wellington County, Nestlé has been pumping up to 4.7 million litres on two expired permits. When Nestlé purchased a third well in Elora, Ontario, there was public outcry because the local township of Centre Wellington needs the well for its drinking water. Nestlé's water takings also raise questions about water justice because Six Nations of the Grand River is downstream from Nestlé and 90 per cent of the population does not have access to clean water. Last fall, Makasa Lookinghorse and other Six Nations youth ...
