THE BATTLE TO SAVE SACRED ALGONQUIN LAND ON THE CHAUDIÈRE ISLANDS FROM WINDMILL CORPORATION’S “CONDO-LAND” PROJECT IS ABOUT TO ESCALATE!
After initial legal and political skirmishes, the real battle against Windmill Corporation’s money grab on the Chaudière Islands (the old “Domtar lands”) is about to begin. On Saturday November 7, between 10 AM and 2 PM, Windmill hopes to make its first condo sales (at 3 Eddy Street). (http://www.zibi.ca/zibi-
You can join the growing ranks of opponents to Windmill’s project by attending the information picket from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, November 7. In addition to warning prospective buyers about the risk they face, and hearing from key figures in the anti-Windmill movement (such as renowned Indigenous architect, Douglas Cardinal), the picket will launch a new Student and Labour Action Committee under the general umbrella of Free the Falls.

If, like us, you believe justice is a prerequisite for achieving the kind of reconciliation championed by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission advocated this summer, you’ll find yourself among allies in our movement.
Join us on November 7 and learn more about how you can assist us in demonstrating to Windmill that opposition to their plans to turn sacred Algonquin land into private profits is moving beyond the courts to opposition on the streets.
