Indigenous land defenders from frontline struggles speak on protecting lands and waters and asserting nationhood on their territories. From No Kinder Morgan and Unist’ot’en to Lelu Island and Madii'Lii all the way to Standing Rock, these communities are exercising traditional laws and jurisdiction and taking courageous actions to stop extractive development on their lands.
Land defenders are traveling far to be here so we encourage and welcome all to attend, learn and show support to these various sites of struggle.
This event on Unceded xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) territories.
