The coalition now includes major Indigenous organisations from every Arctic state, including two organizations that are permanent participants on the Arctic Council. The move demonstrates that there is growing opposition to Arctic oil drilling amongst the Indigenous communities who will be most affected by the industrialisation of their territories and would feel the first impacts of an oil spill.
