Listen to an interview with journalist and social activist Clifton Nicholas, from the Mohawk community of Kanesatake, on the recently launched AD campaign by Eska water corporation across Canada and the corresponding grassroots boycott campaign in response.

In this interview Nicholas outlines a critical perspective on the stereotypical imagery of First Nations people highlighted in the AD campaign and the links to contemporary struggles against colonization in Quebec and Canada. Critically this interview outlines perspectives on the social and political context of institutional racism in North America toward indigenous people and nations that continues today.
