Quotes from

Canada, Racism, Genocide, and the Bomb

by Kim Petersen

Hundreds of Canadian scientists collaborated with allied scientists on the atomic bomb program, for which Canada supplied the uranium and heavy water. Canada also had representation on the Combined Policy Committee that administered the atomic bomb program. Canada’s Howe was among the committee members who approved the use of the bomb on Japan.

The uranium mine was developed by the Canadian government to satisfy US needs for the World War II effort to construct an atomic bomb. From 1942 to 1960, the Sahtugot’ine worked at the mine in Port Radium, unknowingly polluting their massive freshwater resource and irradiating themselves. In the early 1960s, the danger became apparent. The Sahtugot’ine workers started to die from lung, colon, and kidney cancers — diseases previously unknown to them.

Cindy Kenny-Gilday is a Sahtugot’ine who has worked on the issue of uranium contamination of lands and people around Sahtu. About the lethal legacy of uranium mining, she stated in 1998:

Deline [Where the water flows] is practically a village of widows, most of the men who worked as laborers have died of some form of cancer. The widows, who are traditional women were left to raise their families with no breadwinners, supporters. They were left to depend on welfare and other young men for their traditional food source. This village of young men are the first generation of men in the history of Dene on this lake to grow up without guidance from their grandfathers, fathers and uncles. This cultural, economic, spiritual, emotional deprivation impact on the community is a threat to the survival of the one and only tribe on Great Bear Lake.

Declassified documents reveal that the danger from uranium was known during the mining operation. However, neither the Canadian nor US governments saw fit to make known the health dangers. The Sahtugot’ine were sacrificed for an effort that ultimately slaughtered hundreds of thousands.

A Message from Kevin Annett

Posted by feww on October 29, 2007

Hi to everyone,

So, things are shaping up nicely for a three day stay by me in London, from Monday October 29 to Wednesday October 31. During that time I hope to give talks on our recent breakthroughs in the campaign to expose genocide in Canada, and show our film on crimes in residential schools, UNREPENTANT.

Here’s what’s scheduled so far:

1. Oct. 29 – 1 pm: Speak in Social Work class at Univ. of Western Ontario
4 pm : drive to Windsor for a 7 pm lecture at Univ. of Windsor

2. Oct. 30 – 11 am: arrive back in London, I’m free until a 7 pm film showing of UNREPENTANT and lecture at Medix school, 1299 Oxford St. E.

3. Oct. 31: I’m free all day, until another 7 pm showing and lecture at the Medix school.

The following day, Thursday November 1, I plan to go to Hamilton, and then to Toronto on November 2.

Please let me know if you can help hold other gatherings anywhere in London during the daytime of Oct. 30 and 31, and otherwise I hope to see you at one of the scheduled events.

Many thanks,

Kevin Annett

Do something against the canadian police-state

Posted by terres on September 22, 2007

First posted: Sun Aug 26, 2007 1:53 pm

BROTHERS, SISTERS, FRIENDS AND ALLIES YOUR HELP IS NEEDED – PLEASE PASS THIS FAR AND WIDE TO YOUR LISTS AND TAKE ACTION

Do something against the canadian police-state — running dog of U.S. imperialism that it is — and for a world beyond capitalism: sign the below petition in support of Shawn Brant; and pass this event email along.

I’ve been in actions and events with Shawn Brant being in a leadership position. He’s the real deal. So no wonder the fascists who run the canadian state for the Rich want to make an example of him. This is one reason why we call them pigs. Same goes for their lying mass-media — which we have to replace with our own.

So give 100% support to the indigenous struggle: it’s part of ours.

— grok.
