Canada: Land and way of life under threat: The Lubicon Cree of Canada [Demand Dignity campaign digest]

By AI Canada, , Index number: AMR 20/009/2009

This document urges the Canadian authorities to recognise these rights and to agree that no new development activity should be permitted without the agreement of the Lubicon Cree.
