Barriere Lake Algonquins: Taking Back the Airwaves

Collectif de Solidarité Lac Barrière

Barriere Lake Solidarity presents: Taking Back the Airwaves
For many years Barriere Lake has experienced the loss of their land, language and culture. In 1961 they were squeezed onto a 59-acre reserve, in the 1970s they were forced to attend Residential School and since 1993 they have been fighting to have agreements with Quebec and Canada that promise the co-management of their traditional territory honoured.
It's time Barriere Lake took something back…
Join Barriere Lake Solidarity in helping Barriere Lake TAKE BACK THE AIRWAVES.
Where: Independent Media Centre, 2035 St. Laurent
When: November 29th, 7pm (Film Screening) & 9pm (Dance Party)
