Amnesty International Canada urges halt to logging on indigenous land

Date : 25th September 2007, Source : ENS



TORONTO, Ontario, Canada, September 25, 2007 (ENS)Clearcutting vast swaths of northern boreal forest in the traditional territory of a Canadian indigenous tribe violates the rights of its members and should stop, says Amnesty International Canada. Amnesty is calling on the Ontario government to respect a moratorium on logging declared by the people of Grassy Narrows until "free, prior and informed consent" has been given.
