Hello, supporters of Talking Radical!
On this week’s show, I interview Candyce Paul of the Committee for
Future Generations. They are a group of predominantly Cree, Dene, and
Metis people based in northern Saskatchewan. They came together in 2011
to oppose efforts to locate a radioactive waste storage facility in the
region, and since winning that fight earlier this year, they have
focused on challenging the harmful impacts of existing uranium mines
there, as well as of the numerous mining exploration claims that blanket
the area. Paul talks with me about the Committee’s organizing so far;
about their concerns regarding the health, social, and environmental
impacts of the uranium industry (which she encapsulates as ‘nuclear
colonization’); and about their next steps in working towards a safe,
healthy, decolonized future for northern Saskatchewan.

Here’s the link
