Native Americans battle corporations in Idaho

Nez Perce tribe continue their fight against big corporates looking to ship 'mega-loads' through their reservation.

    The tar sands region of the Canadian Province of Alberta has proved a lucrative, and controversial, source of oil for the US market. 

    A remote stretch of highway in the US state of Idaho has become a choke point for tar sands machinery, threatening to cost big oil companies billions of dollars. 

    The fight against megaloads, activists believe, is also a fight against the ecological damage in the tar sands region of Alberta.

    Many also believe it’s a blow in the battle to stop man-made climate change
