We’re drawing a line in the tar sands. Join us.

The Beaver Lake Cree Nation is taking on the tar sands – Canada’s fastest growing source of climate pollution. Already the largest industrial project on Earth, tar sands extraction has poisoned water, eliminated whole forests, and decimated traditional food sources, like the Woodland Caribou.1

The Beaver Lake Cree Nation is the first ever to challenge and be granted a trial on the cumulative impacts of industrial development.
Not one project, not one mine: all of them at once.

Indigenous and treaty rights may be our last, best chance to fight back.

Backed by strong allies, Indigenous legal challenges have stopped pipelines, pushed back open pit mining, and protected vast landscapes from extractive industry. Together we are a mighty force!

Indigenous Peoples are
drawing a line in the sand.

Tarsands have despoiled 90% of Beaver Lake Cree territory

Join the movement: sign up, donate, and invite your network to stand with your and support the Tar Sands Trial.

Time to honour the treaties and respect Indigenous rights

The Beaver Lake Cree homeland has been scarred and polluted by numerous in-situ tar sands projects. Oil and gas wells and infrastructure have displaced moose and elk. Tar sands effluent has polluted the water. Caribou may be driven to extinction in the region within 10 years.

We're ready to lead the way with renewable energy

Because someone has to draw a line in the sand. Are you in?

Expanding tarsands are a game over the climate

What’s at stake for Indigenous Peoples is at stake for all of us: justice, balance, protecting local communities from further harm, and a livable climate.
 

Politicians won’t challenge the power of the tar sands industry. So it’s up to us.

Our movement has real power: by standing together with Indigenous Peoples we’ve stopped tar sands pipelines, held back open pit mining, and defended vast landscapes from industrial development.

To stop the tar sands, we need everybody.

There is no alliance that’s stronger than the movement we are building. It’s time to join forces to protect the environment, climate, and Indigenous People’s right to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent.

I’m taking action to respect and honour the Treaties

Because I believe in justice and right relations, I am standing with Indigenous Peoples against tar sands expansion.

RAVEN — Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs

RAVEN’s Indigenous rights-based framework is a winning strategy that has stopped Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline, held back open pit mining, and defended millions of acres of pristine wilderness from industrial development.

Now we are using the power of the crowd to stop the tar sands.

People are organizing events, fundraising online, and donating to raise $800k for Indigenous rights. Get inspired by everyday champions who are putting reconciliation into action — and join us.
