Ecosocialist Horizons Hour: April 3rd, 2013

April 3, 2013


Kent Lebsock ~ This week’s program highlights the toll wreaked upon our global ecological health by the Canadian Tar Sands and the pipelines that transport their oil. From spills in the Midwest to forest destruction in northern Canada, this latest method of fuel extraction has been called “game over” for planet Earth by climatologists. Fortunately, there is massive resistance to the ecocide, with strong leadership by the indigenous communities of Turtle Island. We will be discussing these issues with special guest Kent Lebsock. Kent Lebsock is of Lakota descent and has worked for many years with the Owe Aku (Bring Back the Way) organization and helped in founding Owe Aku International Justice Project for treaty and human rights advocacy.
