Activists on the Aamjiwnaang reserve near Sarnia, describe their home as the most toxic place in North America. It is surrounded by Chemical Valley. They want clean air, water, and community values over corporate profit-making. Learn about the daily realities of life in
Aamjiwnaang and hear the story of the blockade of the CN rail line that
lasted for 13 days. Video from the Real News.

Writes Lyn Adamson, “We’ll be screening a 20 minute documentary on Aamjiwnaang’s toxic exposure called Cloudmakers – the filmmaker, Rachel Deutsch will be present – its the premiere! And we’ll start by honouring Martin Luther King Jr. – he would have been 84. His visionary leadership for civil rights and his power of organizing are an inspiration for working in an inclusive and nonviolent way for change today! “
