Shoot: Waswanipi Cree Road Blockade in Quebec (Video)

GP0STO4AD
Greenpeace and the Cree Nation of Waswanipi have erected a symbolic blockade in the heart of Quebec's Boreal Forest to protest against the construction of logging roads that will open the Broadback Valley Forest to industrial exploitation.

Ten members of the Waswanipi Cree Nation along with Greenpeace create a blockade by cementing a massive billboard into the ground at the end of a partially built logging road 200 kilometres north of EACOM’s Matagami mill, blocking further construction. The 6’ by 12’ billboard reads in Cree and French: “The path of destruction stops here.” ("Le chemin de la destruction s'arrête ici.") EACOM is the new owner of Domtar’s Quebec operations. The company plans involve building bridges over the Broadback River and logging in ancestral Cree land and pristine woodland caribou habitat.
