Do You Hear The Children Sing?
This podcast is a co-production with Canadaland.
Please be warned: This episode contains two descriptions of violence against children.
Land claims can take generations to settle. Sometimes communities lose patience, sometimes development forces them to take a stand or risk losing their land forever. Barricades have become a familiar scene in Canada. The land issue is rarely settled when barricades come down. Instead, the community is left with court cases, post-traumatic stress, and unresolved human rights issues. Some of those people are children.
In the first half of this episode, we’ll introduce you to three people who survived land conflicts. In the second half, they share their experiences with each other as they meet for the first time.
