Premier Horgan’s forestry announcement on Tuesday disappointed people across the province who were expecting the B.C. NDP to finally show some leadership on old growth protection. There was no mention of timely deferrals or reprieve for Indigenous land defenders and their allies at Fairy Creek.
In response, we're increasing the pressure on all MLAs because we have inside intel that this strategy is working.
Here’s the vision for the June 10th day of action. Constituents across the province will gather in their respective ridings and host a creative protest outside their MLA’s office to let them know that old growth is #WorthMoreStanding.
Who: Organize with other constituents in your riding
What: A protest outside of your local MLA office
Where: Wherever you are!
When: June 10th - organizers will choose specific times, but we suggest during your MLA's office hours
NOTE: This day of action is being planned because ancient forests are imminently at risk, but more broadly because Indigenous rights and sovereignty continue to be violated in the wake of resource extraction. All old growth forests across the province are on unceded, ancestral Indigenous lands — the long term management plan must include FULL, consent based engagement with Indigenous Nations and their diverse set of voices.
