Victory for Grassy Narrows!

From this post at Intercontinental Cry:

After more than a decade of direct action, the Asubpeeschoseewagong community at Grassy Narrows can finally rest easy. The industrial logging giant AbitibiBowater announced yesterday that they are retreating from the Whiskey Jack Forest, three-quarters of which is Grassy Narrows’ traditional territory.

Great news! See the whole post for reproduction of a media release from GreenPeace and links to various other coverage, with reaction from Grassy itself not yet present but to be linked or pasted in as soon as it's available.
