A fight for homeland

It is usually our duty to care for the Earth and to support 7 generations ahead
of us.
……. However, in the case of the radioactivity generated by the nuclear
industry, we must protect 7000 generations.

we, the Committee for Future Generations, were embattled by the Nuclear Waste Management Organization.

We are the Poplar/Aspen Tree Home Dene (English River First Nation). The
Nuclear waste management Organization was soliciting us to allow them to
build a nuclear waste dump on our traditional territory.

Our Committee for Future Generations was in a campaign to raise awareness across
Saskatchewan, Canada, and the world about the serious risks we were facing.
We had walked and talked, and used social media, camped and gathered, and
brought in experts.

Our idea was to show the people that we were struggling
against the industrial military complex. Our very DNA was on the line. We
stood to protect the next 7000 Generations of all living things. It is
usually our duty to care for the Earth and to support 7 generations ahead
of us.

However, in the case of the radioactivity generated by the nuclear
industry, we must protect 7000 generations. The radioactive elements being
created today will be hazardous to humans and other species for 7000
generations of life on this planet. We went toe to toe with the sales
brokers the industry sent to pitch this glorified waste dump. We exposed
their gaps and their outright lies and propaganda at every opportunity.

In 2014 they admitted defeat and left Saskatchewan to try to find a willing
“host” community in Ontario. But we continue defending our people
. Our
territory has some of the highest-grade uranium deposits in the world. More
than 2700 mineral claims are on file, primarily intending to mine uranium.
There are currently 5 uranium mines and 2 mills in our territory and 2
other companies are in the preliminary stages of applying for a licence to
mine.

Until this industry is shut down neither us, nor people in the places
where the yellow cake is distributed will be safe.
