BRUCE CLARK fought the entire Canadian legal system for aboriginal sovereignty rights -- Extraordinary interview

Source: Ontario Civil Liberties Association

This interview is an important historic record in the story of Canada’s genocide of the aboriginal peoples.

The Ontario Civil Liberties Association (OCLA) interviewed Dr. Bruce Clark, the lawyer and jurisprudential scholar who describes what ails the Canadian justice system when it comes to dealing with Aboriginal sovereignty issues. Bruce Clark represented Gustafsen Lake Faith Keepers at the Gustafsen Lake Standoff in 1995 near Shuswap, BC. From defender of Aboriginal rights before Canadian and international courts to being jailed and disbarred, Dr. Clark’s struggle has led him to a fight against the justice system itself.
