In solidarity with the Tiny House Warriors

Stand with Indigenous communities resisting the TransMountain pipeline. r1

Friends,

This past weekend, pipeline supporters rallied in Blue River, BC — where construction on the dirty TransMountain tar sands pipeline is slated to begin this summer — to call for the eviction of the Tiny House Warriors from their own unceded and unsurrended territories. We want to be clear. This was a violent and racist display of white nationalism.

The Tiny House Warriors and other Secwepemc land defenders have been standing up to this dangerous pipeline for years. We stand in solidarity with them in their ongoing fight against the TransMountain pipeline and construction of man camps on their territories.

Here are two actions you can take to fight racism against Indigenous communities standing up to pipeline projects like the TransMountain pipeline:

    1. Watch and share this powerful video on racism and pipelines. In this video, Dr. Pam Palmater (renowned professor, activist, and lawyer) explains the impacts of Canada's relentless and racist pursuit of pipelines on Indigenous peoples.
    2. Watch and share this message from Tiny House Warriors. Secwepemc land defenders are defending their territories from resource extraction and man camps.

We know the TransMountain pipeline will take us in... the opposite direction of a Just Recovery for all. It will make climate change worse, lock in dangerous fossil fuel expansion and put Indigenous lives and communities at risk. Last weekend’s events make it crystal clear that we need to stand with those on the frontlines.

In solidarity,

Jennifer

PS — In the midst of the COVID-19 and climate crisis, we must fight the systemic harm and violence Black, Indigenous and migrant communities continue to face. That’s why we wanted to share this action from our friends at Migrant Rights Network. Take 2 minutes to demand Justin Trudeau give Status for All migrants in the midst of the COVID-19.
