Nova Scotia Power’s coal is “drenched in blood”

According to Nova Scotia Power’s website, coal still accounts for about 59 percent of energy production in our province. And according to Colombian union activist and lawyer Francisco Ramirez Cuellar, this coal is “drenched in blood.”

The vast majority of this coal comes from international markets, including Colombia, where 3,000 union organizers have been killed in the last 25 years.

During his recent tour of the Maritimes, Cuellar described how both Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have unwittingly become complicit in environmental devastation, forced displacement, disappearances and murders in his country due to companies like NSP purchasing coal coming from Colombia.
