Tertulia – David Bedford on The Marshall Decision Two Decades Later: Emancipation as Oppression

As Mi’kmaw fishers face ongoing racist attacks and penalties for harvesting lobster and Wolatoqey loggers go to court again over cutting wood, join us for a special Tertulia featuring David Bedford on the Marshall Decision Two Decades Later: Emancipation as Oppression on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 7:00pm (Atlantic time) on Zoom.

David Bedford will explore the legacy of Donald Marshall Jr. and the 1999 Supreme Court of Canada Marshall Decision, the effects of fisheries agreements between the Canadian state and First Nation communities, the concept of self-government and the implications of a settler colonial state defining a moderate livelihood.
