Winds of Change Dec 8 11 – Analyzing Attawapiskat, the Passamaqoddy vs the Nuclear Industry

Janie Kataquapit-Ramos (BlueSky Woman) grew up in Attawapiskat, learning the traditional ways of her ancestors who inhabited the region for hundreds of thousands of years prior to the colonialist invasion.  Life has changed dramatically for her people in the recent decades leading up to the current crisis.  In the second half, Wilhemina (Willi) Nolan shares her concerns and frustrations after attending a public hearing with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission who seem determined to invest tax dollars to refurbish the Point Lepreau nuclear power plant despite opposition from the Passamaqoddy First Nation (and others) whose ancestral lands the factory is built upon.
