Eriel Deranger's Presentation at Neil Young's Press Conference

by Draw The Line

See video

Those following mainstream media reports regarding Neil Young's fundraising tour have seen most of the focus on the celebrity exchange between Young and Prime Minister Harper, but very little on what the fundraiser is actually for. 

Neil Young's press conferences featured very knowledgeable speakers who explained it, but I've found little or no mention of them in any of the news reports about the tour. 

This is Eriel Deranger speaking at Neil Young' press conference on January 12, 2014 at Massey Hall. 

'We have runaway development, as Chief Adam so eloquently put it, we have a runaway train with no one at the conductor. We have seen unevaded development, and approval after approval being granted, in Northern Alberta, in the Athabasca oilsands region. The Athabasca Chipweyan First Nation has a mandate, as directed by our elder's council in 2010, that states that we need to protect our traditional homelands.'
