(en) Canada, Collectif Emma Goldman - [Press release] A banner hung in Saint-Félicien to denounce the spills in the Ashuapmushuan (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

A banner hung in Saint-Félicien to denounce the spills in the Ashuapmushuan ---- * For immediate release * ---- Saint-Félicien, July 22. 2021 // - Activists from the Mashk Assi and Emma Goldman collectives hung a banner overnight from yesterday to today denouncing the discharge of treatment water into the Ashuapmushuan River by the Kraft pulp mill in Resolved in Saint-Félicien (in the stolen lands of Nitassinan). Bearing the inscription "Pick up your Resolute marde", it was installed on the Saint-Eusèbe road, near the plant in question, in order to point out the operation of the multinational.
In a forestry regime akin to the Far West, with its bar open to industry, the issue of corporate environmental protection is reduced to vain press conference pretensions. We see it once again with the repeated spills carried out in Ashuapmushuan by Resolute's Kraft pulp mill in Saint-Félicien. The Ashuapmushuan River, which nevertheless enjoys protection status for its exceptional natural heritage, experienced 258 days of discharge of industrial treatment water from the plant between 2017 and 2020 according to the Ministry of the Environment and the scene. 'has been reproduced many times since the start of 2021. These voluntary spills are carried out in a strategy of blackmail against the government so that it invests in its place the tens of millions of dollars necessary to replace the drain pipe. As of today, Resolute can be proud of having almost already made the government bow to the chagrin of the workers who will finance the multinational with their taxes. Meanwhile, their turpitudes endanger the landlocked salmon, a species of salmon for which the Ashuapmushuan is a vital biological corridor.

Through its actions, Resolute displays its total contempt for the ancestral territory of the Pekuakamiulnuatsh and the rights of First Peoples. This is colonialism. Faced with the industry's denial of Ilnu history and traditions, as well as the sacredness of the territory, one must resist in order to exist! Through this action, we wish to reiterate that the territories of Nitassinan have not been ceded under any treaty. In addition, we reject and denounce the Impact and Benefit Agreements (IBAs) signed by band councils, which are promised spinoffs from large companies in exchange for their consent to the rapid destruction of ancestral territory.
