Audio from the Defenders of the Land gathering, bringing together grassroots Indigenous activists across "Canada" in active struggle to defend their land and assert self-determination.
No One Is Illegal Radio
Between November 12-14, 2008, the historic Defenders of the Land gathering took place in Winnipeg. The gathering brought together dozens of grassroots activists, elders, youth, women and men from Indigenous communities across "Canada" who are in active struggle to defend their land and assert self-determination.

A new grassroots Indigenous network was created from the gathering, entitled the "Turtle Island Defenders of the Earth" (TIDE).

On this special edition of No One Is Illegal Radio, we hear from participants at the Defenders of the Land gathering. The following short interviews were taken in Winnipeg during the gathering; the voices provide a frontline perspective on diverse and linked struggles for land, freedom and self-determination on Turtle Island, as well as reflections on the Defenders of the Land gathering itself.
