Button Battery Syndrome & The Bad River

by Bad River

Oil pipelines bringing black goop from Alberta will decimate The Bad River territory. Once believed to be a sacred place, it was a life source for first nations people - This was the first place they grew corn on water and it was vital to the survival of many nations. This is land that should clearly be preserved and adding heavy infrastructure will only help to further punish and humiliate the rightful owners of the land - my opinion. This pipeline and projects like it directly affect us all as living, breathing North Americans. While we look to control climate change in the best ways we can, things like this are happening right under our noses.

THEY are also looking to turn this beautiful land into an Iron Ore mine..
