News release by the Labrador Land Protectors and Grand Riverkeeper Labrador, calling for a national day of action on Muskrat Falls in May of this year. Nova Scotia is complicit through the Maritime Link, but unfortunately the Ecology Action Centre remains silent on this impending act of cultural genocide.
Roberta Benefiel, founding director of Grand Riverkeeper, Labrador, is visiting Nova Scotia to remind us that for the people who live there Muskrat Falls is an environmental disaster that will poison traditional food sources and flood indigenous lands. She believes that through the Maritime Link this is Nova Scotia issue as well. “There may not be that many of us, but people do live here. We need to put a face to these people,” Benefiel tells the Nova Scotia Advocate.
