The North American Megadam Resistance Alliance, the Natural Resources Council of Maine, and Sierra Club Maine cohosted an event at the University of Maine at Farmington on Monday night, November 25.
NRCM co-sponsored this event featuring Canadian indigenous people sharing their stories about the negative impacts that massive Canadian hydropower dams are having on their homelands.
The CMP Corridor (NECEC) is set to slice through miles of forests, wetlands, streams, and ponds in Maine to deliver electricity to Massachusetts generated by megadams in Canada. This electricity is neither clean, nor green. Community members from hydro-affected areas in Canada will be coming to Farmington to raise awareness about the environmental and cultural destruction of rivers, land, and food webs throughout Indigenous territory that is being caused by the construction and operation of megadams and their associated transmission corridors.

When: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Monday, November 25, 2019
Where: Thomas Auditorium, Prebble Hall, University of Maine at Farmington, 173 High Street, Farmington, ME 04938
