World Water Day Film Celebration March 22
Two short films spotlighting threats to our waters and the activism for environmental protection are screening in celebration of World Water Day.
The films are showing Thursday March 22 at 7 PM in Northern United Place Auditorium.
One River/Many Relations explores the harm of the Alberta Tar Sands to human health and the environment, as seen through the eyes of the Cree, Dene and Metis people of Fort Chipewyan.
Water Warriors documents the coalition of Mi’kmaq Elsipogtog First Nation and French-and English-speaking New Brunswickers blocking fracking exploration and ultimately changing governments in an election focused on waters protection.
Brenda Dragon, Fort Smith water activist and opponent of the Peace River Site C dam, will share her thoughts in relation to water protection, and experience as part of the Site C Summit held in Victoria, BC., earlier this year.
The films are being presented in partnership by Ecology North, the Council of Canadians NWT Chapter and the City of Yellowknife.
