Western Sahara, Indigenous Rights, and Unitarian Principles?

Discover the connections!  View the recent award-winning film, “Sirocco: Winds of Resistance” with guest speaker, director and producer, Josh Campbell.  It takes us to Western Sahara in northwest Africa where the illegal Moroccan occupation of this Indigenous homeland has been prolonged by PotashCorp of Saskatchewan (now Nutrien).

Featured are two Indigenous women leaders who share their people’s dream for democracy and freedom from oppression.

The film director/producer and the lawyer who represents the democratically-elected Saharawi government in exile will speak and answer questions.

As the 11th anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples approaches, this film invites us to consider connections among some charities, corporations, and the territorial rights of indigenous peoples.

(the Film is also being screened at Saskatoon Public Central Library, April 21, 2-4pm. and April 22, 4 -6pm)
