Broadback : A Valley to Protect

Video | October 27, 2011

In the new film « Broadback : A Valley to Protect », Cree elders, hunting leaders and the Chief of Waswanipi Cree Nation give poignant testimonies of the large scale impacts of logging operations on their land and the threats it poses to the « Cree way of life ». They call for the protection of their ancestral land, one of the last large intact forests in Québec, the Broadback Valley Forest. In April 2011, a Greenpeace team from Europe came to witness the threats to the Broadback Valley from the air. Meanwhile, activists and the Waswanipi Cree Nation wrote a gigantic message in English and Cree, in the last clearcut at the frontier with the Broadback Valley Forest. Logging has gone too far, it is time to stop! Tell Minister Arcand to save the Broadback!
