The Yinka Dene Alliance, made up of First Nations in northern BC that have banned the Enbridge Northern Gateway Tar Sands Pipeline from their territories, are touring First Nation communities along the Energy East Tar Sands Pipeline route. They are sharing the story of how they came to understand the dangers associated with the Northern Gateway pipeline, and how they built a wall of opposition to the pipeline by creating
the Save the Fraser Declaration.

The Declaration has now been signed by over 130 First Nations. The West Meets East tour started on May 30th with the March to the End of the Line event outside of Saint John, NB and spanned three weeks as it followed the Energy East route all the way to Winnipeg to end the tour on June 18.
