Repelling The Corporate Invasion

http://www.popularresistance.org/repelling-the-corporate-invasion/

It is not an exaggeration to say that Canada and the United States are facing an invasion of extractive energy corporations. They seek to conquer these occupied territories just as the early Europeans did and extract the resources while subjecting the populaces to genocide. This may sound like strong language, but that is only because the public discourse on this subject has been anemic, at best. When the continued use of fossil fuels threatens extreme regional environmental degradation, severe health consequences for local communities, and also the extinction of the entire human species due to carbon-emission induced global warming leading to catastrophic climate change, even the language of "invasion" and "genocide" is inadequate to describe the reality.
