Online Webinar on December 17, 4:00 p.m.  (PT)

This webinar will provide important updates from Indigenous land defenders who are currently resisting aggressive extractive industries supported by the provincial BC government. The BC government has given permits to pipeline companies as well as permits for the reopening and discharge at Mount Polly. This webinar will discuss the ongoing damage done by extractive industries, the problem of First Nations leadership who agree to these practices without consent of the people, and call out the BC government for their continued interference in Indigenous self-determination and sovereignty.

Moderator: Kanahus Manuel with guests Ricardo Segovia, Matthew Danes, Dini Ze Toghestiy and Freda Hudson.
