Speakers ~ Multimedia ~ Discussion
Across the province people are finding ways to stand up against projects that are destroying nature and trampling on Indigenous rights. From consistent resistance to the TMX Pipeline as it tries to rip a line from East to West for a reckless Tar Sands Pipeline, to dogged opposition to the Site C Dam which would flood the Peace River Valley, to growing mobilizations to stop the logging of the little Old Growth forests at Fairy Creek on Vancouver Island.
People across BC are telling John Horgan that if his government won't keep its promise to protect the planet, we will work together and organize to stop these disastrous projects ourselves.
Join us as we bring organizers together to provide the latest on the ground updates and information on how we continue to join and support these vital ongoing flashpoints of resistance.
