Human Rights Day was celebrated on December 10 by people marching through the streets of Winnipeg to raise awareness about the impacts that hydroelectric development has had on northern Manitoba communities. Wa Ni Ska Tan is an alliance of hydro-impacted communities that helped to organize the march. A report released earlier this year ​contained allegations of sexual abuse by Manitoba Hydro workers against Indigenous women in Manitoba's north as well as the environmental and social impacts of developments.
