Canada: Land and way of life under threat: The Lubicon Cree of Canada [Demand Dignity campaign digest]
Large-scale oil and gas development has drastically undermined the ability of the Lubicon Cree to maintain their traditional economy and live on the land. The Lubicon are seeking a reserve on a portion of their traditional land, funds to set up viable community infrastructure, recognition of their right to administer their own government and services on the reserve, and fair compensation. 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.
