by Allan Lissner

See video

On March 5th a large crowd gathered at Steel Workers Hall in Toronto to watch the release of a new film on from Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) First Nations looking at their struggle to protect their lands.  Entitled Kanawayandan D'aaki - Protecting Our Land. The film was followed by a panel of leaders from KI speaking in Anishanbek and English. 

KI are mobilizing to block  God's Lake Resources from prospecting for gold on their homelands. The Ontario government has indicated that the company plans to begin prospecting this Month.

A rally is being called for 12:30 on March 6th at 255 Front Street out side the PDAC convention, the largest mining industry event of its type in the world. 

Check into the Toronto Media Coop later today for full coverage of this protest.
