Indigenous Canadians push for water rights

Group in Ontario using protests, online activism and blockades to seek more access to natural resources.

An indigenous group in Ontario, Canada, has been pushing for what its says are basic human rights.

The group’s members have just achieved an important win in their aim to end what they say is the isolation of Shoal Lake. The 40km-long Freedom Road has just opened and it links the community with the Trans-Canada Highway.

But the Idle No More movement is still fighting for equal sharing of water. And they have used protests, online activism and blockades to draw attention to their situation.
