This Pipeline Ends Here – Tsleil-Waututh Nation Sacred Trust Initiative Rally
Vancouver Art Gallery – Georgia Street and Howe Street, Downtown Vancouver
Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/438109374756710
Please join the Tsleil-Waututh Nation Sacred Trust Initiative and its allies for a rally against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion featuring Indigenous leaders from across North America. Now that construction costs have soared past $21.4 billion, the federal government has ruled out more public financing and is looking for new investors.
Tsleil-Waututh is one of many Nations along the route who have never given consent for this pipeline to cross their territories. Canada cannot keep acting as if the laws that preceded it do not exist just as it cannot proceed as if climate disasters are not already wreaking havoc in our communities. Indigenous leaders from all over the continent are coming together to stand with Tsleil-Waututh against Trans Mountain — this pipeline ends here!
Join us at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 9 at šxʷƛ̓ənəq Xwtl’e7énḵ (Vancouver Art Gallery) to call on Prime Minister Trudeau to abandon pipeline construction and to show investors that we are not going anywhere. Bring the whole family and enjoy some fun children’s activities while you hear from a powerful lineup of speakers.
