BBC to screen programme on The Co-operative's ethical campaigning

Co-op campaigns against Toxic Fuels and for the Beaver Lake Cree

Co-op campaigns against Toxic Fuels and for the Beaver Lake Cree

Monday 26 October, BBC One is screening a half hour programme on The Co-operative’s ethical campaigning, with a focus on their most recent fight against Toxic Fuels and our support for the Beaver Lake Cree’s legal challenge.

The Beaver Lake Cree live in Alberta, Canada, and have seen their traditional lands degraded by large scale deforestation and pollution arising from tar developments. They have launched a legal case, taking on the Canadian and Albertan Governments, as well as every oil giant currently operating in the tar sands.

This fight is a true David versus Goliath battle, with the lawsuit potentially the only thing between us and runaway climate change.

Watch the programme: Monday 26 October, 7.30pm:

* BBC One North West
* Sky channel 978
* Freesat channel 955
* Watch it on iPlayer from Tuesday 27 October.

Donate to the Beaver Lake Cree – support their battle against further tar sands developments. Donate here.

Spread the word – tell your friends, family and colleagues about this issue and help them join our fight via our pages on Twitter and Facebook, as well as our campaign site
