In this short film by Joey Podlubny you will meet the Northern Trappers Alliance, a small group of Dene trappers who last month created a blockade–near La Loche, Saskatchewan–in order to stop ongoing oilsands and uranium industry activity in the area.
Despite being forced to move to the side of the road by the RCMP, the Dene trappers say they are not going anywhere and that they are planning to block the road again.
