AUDIO: Indigenous campaign against Pinehouse uranium gag deal

Hear-Thishttp://www.cbc.ca/player/Radio/Local+Shows/Saskatchewan/ID/2310512792/ Committee for Future Generations on Pinehouse   2 Dec 12,  Two Pinehouse residents are campaigning against further nuclear development in the area.

This is happening in Canada.  Far from the extractive industries in emerging nations but in a “developed country” and on flag-canadaAboriginal land and with Indigenous people.  You will recognize the names of the same players.

The public is being alerted to a plan for a “Collaboration Agreement” between uranium giants Cameco & Areva and the community of Pinehouse in Northern Saskatchewan Although this agreement is being presented as an opportunity for Pinehouse to receive resources for investments in Community Investment, Workforce Development, Business Development and Community Engagement and Environmental Stewardship, it represents an exchange of money from the nuclear industry to Pinehouse with a promise from the community that its members will stop speaking out against current, proposed or future uranium mining projects in the area.  Critics are calling this a gag order.
