Vancouver: Resistance without Reservation! Fundraiser to support the Skwelkwek'welt Defenders
Join us for a series of short movies on the struggle of the Secwepemc community defending their traditional indigenous territories from economic development being undertaken by Sun Peaks Resort, Delta Hotels, and real estate developers. Over the years, repression faced by those defending their rights against neoliberal-capitalist and colonial expansion has resulted in 54 arrests. All funds raised will go towards legal costs of two Skwelkwek’welt defenders who in Feb 2007 will be appealing criminal charges from a road blockade in 2001.
