Rally for the Tsilhqot'in Monday

Dear Friends of SJS,

The Tsilhqot'in are in court on Monday to try and get an injunction to stop the drilling permits that Christy Clark issued to Taseko the day before the inauguration (!!) The Tsilhqot'in are asking people to join them for a ceremony/rally at 9 am on Monday outside the courthouse - we just learned about it yesterday and are trying to muster the troops! Both Chief Russell Myers-Ross and Chief Roger William will be speaking, as well as Grand Chief Stewart Phillip.
