Beaver Lake Cree come to the UK

Stop Tar Sands Expansion protest2

Members of the Beaver Lake Cree in London

In November 2011, Crystal Lameman-Cardinal and Chance McPherson, young people from the Beaver Lake Cree Nation in Northern Alberta, came to the UK to share stories about life in the tar sands, at a time when our Government was helping Canada to undermine EU environmental regulation on behalf of the tar sands industry.

The pair spoke in London, Oxford (for Shared Planet) and Birmingham, about the impacts of the tar sands industry on their environment, health and the treaty rights which are meant to protect their traditional ways of life.

Below are details of the events we organised:
