Two instances of railroad sabotage

De/From Anews

The infrastructures of State and capital continue to spread their tentacles, seeking to accelerate the extraction and transportation of resources to the market. The vast territory that is the Canadian North, often sparsely populated due in large part to the displacement, isolation, and genocide of indigenous peoples, is an immense source of profit; oil, gas, forestry, hydro-dams, uranium mines, etc. Various monstrous infrastructural expansion projects are currently trying to connect the Alberta Tar Sands through pipelines along the St. Lawrence river to the Atlantic. These projects entail expanding and constructing new infrastructure such as ports, rail lines, and highways all along this route on colonized territories.

Of Ants and Men…

To the capitalists…

No, the State doesn’t have the last word.

Let the waters flow, let nature go its ways.

Yet you still dare standing in her way…

Have you forgot what is this you’re sitting on?

What is this air you’re breathing?

It’s that planet that isn’t yours.

It’s that land that isn’t for sale.

That land.. can take everything back.

Everything that is yours.

You think you’re the masters?

You think your science will save you?

You are still weak little ants, running towards a fire…

But even the ants themselves aren’t that stupid.

When it gets too hot, they move away.

CKUT radio: Gitz Crazyboy on the tar sands

Years of big dirty money for global corporate crooks, devastating machinery of massive Earth rape; dispossessed Natives, demoralized by crack, abuse, bought silence; and the land & rivers polluted to ludicrous levels; this is what Canada looks like…

"Canada: a country of vast spaces & beautiful wilderness!" (from a tourist pamphlet)

Here’s an interview with kindigenous youth activist Gitz Crazyboy from Fort Chipewyan, speaking in Montreal. This interview details the environmental impacts of the Alberta tar sands on surrounding ecosystems and water ways like the Athabasca River.

In this interview Crazyboy also details first hand experiences of the health challenges facing indigenous communities close to the major tar sands operations, specifically in Fort Chipewyan and Fort MacKay. Also this interview highlights the complicity of the current Conservative government in the tar sands industry.
