Walk with Grassy Narrows for Mercury Justice!
The devastating mercury crisis in Grassy Narrows First Nation has persisted for decades, ever since nine tonnes of mercury was dumped upstream in the 1960s, with little government action to help the people.
To this day, 86% of Grassy Narrows members got no compensation for the impacts of the ongoing mercury crisis on their health, culture, and livelihoods. To make matters worse, Ontario is now proposing mining exploration and industrial logging on Grassy Narrows lands against Grassy Narrows’ will.
At noon on Thursday, July 21 at Queens Park, walk with Grassy Narrows youth and community members to show that we are with them on their path to achieving mercury justice and freedom.
