Example text

The Declaration enshrines the right to “free, prior and informed consent” in relation to any projects that may affect Indigenous homelands and livelihoods. Such rights are increasingly being trampled on by the expansion of the tar sands landscape and the extension of pipelines across North America, as objections on the basis of health, culture, and livelihoods are routinely ignored or dismissed by both corporations and governments. While Indigenous rights to self-determination remain just as crucial in areas where treaty agreements do not exist, it is also crucial to recognize how extraction, refining, and pipeline operations violate a series of treaty agreements that should provide legal protection against ongoing colonial activities.
