I received a copy of a blog entry about a weekend panel discussion in Missoula Montana about tar sands oil extraction. Canadian Native people are very alarmed about the pollution and problems arising from this activity and apparently tar sands work is starting in the United States.
You can read the full entry.
Alex Sakariassen writes about the impacts of tar sands mining across North America.
He describes the grassroots groups and Native American activists from Alberta, Utah, Oklahoma and elsewhere that met at the University of Montana for the International Tar Sands Resistance Summit.
