NFU Renews Call for #NoDAPL in Solidarity with Standing Rock
As an organization of farmers concerned with the health and integrity of the land and environment, the NFU repeats its support of the rights of the Standing Rock Sioux to defend their water, land, and treaty rights and stands in solidarity with those marching on Washington DC to bring these issues to light.
“The completion of DAPL represents yet another example of using law enforcement to criminalize dissent and further dispossess Indigenous peoples of their lands and sovereignty,” said Ted Baker, farmer and NFU member. “Small-scale sustainable farming means respecting the land and honouring our relationship to the web of life that supports us,” continued Baker. “Promoting such a sustainable food system requires careful stewardship of the land and this includes standing with,and learning from, Indigenous nations that have been doing this for centuries and who are today protecting and defending the water and lands that we share.”

What is the NFU?
The National Farmers Union is a direct-membership voluntary organization made up of Canadian farm families who share common goals. It is the only farm organization incorporated through an Act of Parliament.
NFU members believe that the problems facing farmers are common problems, and that farmers producing diverse products must work together to advance effective solutions. The NFU works toward the development of economic and social policies that will maintain the family farm as the primary food-producing unit in Canada.
