Idle and More Statement responding to latest Husky Oil Spill

INM has and will continue to help build sovereignty & resurgence of nationhood. INM will continue to pressure government and industry to protect the environment. INM will continue to build allies in order to reframe the nation to nation relationship, this will be done by including grassroots perspectives, issues, and concern. Guided by these original vision statements of Idle No More, we as grassroots reassert our determination that we will continue to protect Mother Earth and all her sacred elements. The most recent oil spill in which Husky, provincial government and all other stakeholders who stand by as waters become polluted, animals die and people become sick has reinvigorated unity amongst our organizers. As the true rights holders and protectors of the land, water, air and energies, we call upon Husky Oil to provide ALL necessary measures to their employees, contractors and any volunteers to clean and remediate the current infection to the environment. Idle No More calls on all who are able to continue to exercise your inherent rights and jurisdiction in protecting and assuring we are no longer further affected by this most recent oil spill. Idle No More calls upon Husky Oil to provide all necessary training to our protectors and to reimburse at cost any remediation efforts made on behalf of Mother Earth to our land defenders. We assert that you are not welcome in our territories once your clean up efforts have satisfied the lives of the animals and the waters clean We exercise our jurisdiction in commanding pipelines are shut off and never to be operating again Whereas the most recent oil spill has begun irreparable damage to the earths elements and it is evident that provincial and federal regulations and laws are not consistent with Indigenous laws, Let it be known that we will prioritize safety and protection of Mother Earth and all her elements over the extractive industry and all its stakeholders. We as citizens of sovereign nations assert our jurisdiction and demand inclusion in regulating environmental assessments and ensuring environmental laws and regulations adhere to the first laws and Indigenous laws and worldview. We expect provisional measures be put in place by Provincial and federal governments to attain this stewardship and doing this in part by assuring capacity and resources will be directed to the management of such.
