       MESSAGES OF SOLIDARITY FOR THE WALKERS

Here are a few things you can do to support this important campaign:


  • Read and circulate the Open Letter to the people of Saskatchewan.
  • Form a chapter of Committee For Future Generations in your community.













































The Committee For Future Generations is a group from Northern Saskatchewan raising awareness about the possibility of a nuclear waste dump coming to this province.  Support from the north is building, and the group is demanding a province-wide ban on nuclear waste storage & transportation. 


The 7000 Generations Walk left Pinehouse Lake on July 27 headed to Regina, and met with Saskatchewan residents along the route, collecting petitions & connecting with people from all walks of life on this important issue.   Check out pictures from the road.  


"The purpose of our Walk is to wake people up to the reality that northern Saskatchewan is being targeted to store millions of used nuclear bundles which would be highly radioactive for hundreds of thousands of years.  We will carry a petition to the Legislature that people may sign, directing the government to legislate a ban on nuclear waste storage and transportation in our province"....read more...


“And lastly I just want to say the North doesn’t owe NWMO (Nuclear Waste Management Organization) or the government anything, we don’t owe them anything. They woke up this rock 
and transformed it and it went out of control on them, we don’t 
owe them anything to take this dangerous ore back here.” 
 
- Max Morin, Committee for Future Generations, June 24, 2011-
