An Anti-Thanksgiving Fundraiser for the Unist’ot’en Camp
Join community members for an anti-thanksgiving brunch – all you can eat pancakes for $5 suggested donation. Proceeds from the event will go to the Unist’ot’en Camp!
The Unist’ot’en Camp is a resistance community whose purpose is to protect sovereign Wet’suwet’en territory from several proposed pipelines from the Tar Sands Gigaproject and shale gas from Hydraulic Fracturing Projects in the Peace River Region. You can read more about the camp here: http://unistotencamp.com/
“We stand beside communities in all directions taking action to stop the pipelines that exist or that are proposed or approved,” the camp organizers write on their website. “The Unist’ot’en (C’ihlts’ehkhyu / Big Frog Clan) along with other strong uncompromising allies will stop this destructive path, for the future generations, for the biodiversity, and for solidarity with our neighbours living amidst the heavy impacts in the Tar Sands Affected areas.”
Wet’suwet’en territory, which extends from Burns Lake to the Coastal Mountains, is sovereign territory which has never been ceded to the colonial Canadian state; the Wet’suwet’en are not under treaty with the Canadian government. Their territory, therefore, is and always will be free, and belongs to the Wet’suwet’en people alone.
We will have pancakes, waffles and gluten-free and vegan options as well. And maple syrup! YUM! We will also watch some short films about the camp and will have information about pipelines available, so we can feed our bellies AND our minds.
