This week, we serve to amplify indigenous voices raised in opposition to the Nevada Thacker Pass lithium mine project.

This week, we return to the voice of Leanne Simpson with excerpts from a longer essay published in 2016, critiquing the pseudo-reconciliation process launched by the “liberal” Trudeau government in Canada.
As Jill Stauffer so brilliantly demonstrates in her pioneering book Ethical Loneliness, a false reconciliation does nothing but retraumatize the victim while further entrenching the moral sanctimony of the perpetrator.
Images link to Simpson videos, also worthy of deep listening.
