In this episode of Days of Revolt, Chris Hedges discusses the violation of land and lives of Indigenous peoples with two Native American activists, Charmaine White Face and Petuuche Gilbert. They talk about the massive nuclear pollution caused by decades of uranium mining; a catastrophe compounded by coal extraction, which is carrying nuclear contaminants across the continent. Faced with what they describe as “genocide,” Charmaine White Face and Petuuche Gilbert lay out how they are fighting back.
