We hear on the news about the stuggle of the indegenios people of south canada with the pipe line, i suggest we do the same as our indegenios brothers and sisters to get our voices heard around the world.
Hears on the news about indigenous peoples concerned about the pipeline. We Inuit need to negotiate using our resources, using your organization. We have obstacles and people tell us we’ll get back to you and this had been ongoing. Need to negotiate like they did with their polar bears, so that their concerns with the number of ships (?). Had 40 cruise ships this year, and 40 more next year will come in addition to the ships already coming. Maybe if we start telling the world, then our voices could be heard and we could get more support. If we are not heard then maybe we need to set up blockades. Perhaps in the future some of us will have to be arrested if Baffinland continues to go ahead with their proposal. Before we get to that point, we try to keep negotiating with your organization, might get to the point of doing blockades if they keep encountering these issues.
