REC Toward Collective Understandings of Inequality 2 Decolonizing Activism

Decolonization demands that the mainstream society interrupt, stop benefiting from and transform a colonial relationship with indigenous peoples.

The labour movement can be a part of this interruption and this transformation, if there is to be justice in Canada (and elsewhere) for aboriginal people.

This video is a conversation between two veteran aboriginal labour activists, Michael Desautels and Don Moran. They tackle questions like what is decolonization and how can unions move towards a transformed relationship with aboriginal workers and communities.
