Les peuples autochtones ont le droit de décider

Le consentement libre et éclairé (CLÉ) est le droit inaliénable des communautés autochtones qui doivent décider de dire “oui” ou “non” aux exploitations minières, forestières, gazières, de l'eau, ou toute autre proposition d'activité extérieure pouvant affecter leurs terres, territoires et/ ou les ressources naturelles.

Le savoir, c'est le pouvoir

Apprendre les standards nationaux et internationaux aide les communautés à défendre leur territoire.
