Dear Supporter,

If anyone has any reservations about the devastating impacts of the tar sands or the potential impact of the Keystone XL pipeline through the United States on the communities surrounding it, encourage them to listen to this interview with Gitz Crazyboy, indigenous youth activist from the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation.

Gitz, a member of the True Cost of Chevron Network, details the environmental impacts of the Alberta tar sands on surrounding ecosystems and water ways like the Athabasca River.

Listen to his interview with CKUT radio or download audio the file.

In this interview, Crazyboy also details first hand experiences of the health challenges facing indigenous communities close to the major tar sands operations, specifically in Fort Chipewyan and Fort MacKay. This interview also highlights the complicity of the current Canadian Conservative government in the tar sands industry.

For more information on indigenous opposition to the tar sands visit the Indigenous Environment Network.

This interview was produced for broadcast on campus/community radio stations by community journalist Stefan Christoff who is at @spirodon.

Listen, and take action – the tar sands must be stopped!

Carleen Pickard
Executive Director



P.S.
Gitz talks about the pioneering work Dr. John O’Connor has done and continues to do to defend front line communities. Hear his testimony and read more about him in Mother Jones.
