About the defence of the Oldman River in Alberta.
Abstract: Despite a federa court ruling, the Oldman River Dam in Alberta was completed without an environmental impact assessment. In the summer of 1990, the Lonefighters, traditionalist members of the Peigan Nation, decided to take the defence of the river into their own hands. Craig Benjamin spoke with their leader Milton Born-With-A-Tooth about the failutre of the legal process and the need to build links in support of native rights.
Connexions exists to support individuals and groups working for freedom and social justice. We work to maintain and make available a record of the theory and practice of people struggling against oppression and for social change. We believe that the more we know about the struggles, victories, and defeats of the past, and about those who took part in them, the better equipped we will be to bring a new world into being.
Connexions maintains a physical archive of books and documents, and is engaged in an ongoing project to build and expand an indexed digital archive of documents. We try to feature a wide variety of resources reflecting a diversity of viewpoints and approaches to social change within our overall mandate of support for democracy, civil liberties, freedom of expression, universal human rights, secularism, equality, economic justice, environmental responsibility, and the creation and preservation of community.
We are internationalist in our orientation, but as a Canadian-based project we feature an especially extensive collection of Canadian documents and profiles of Canadian activist organizations.
