Grandview Calvary Baptist Church, 1803 East 1st Ave (just east of Commercial Drive).
Unceded xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) territories.
Indigenous land defenders from across the interior and north will be converging in Vancouver, Unceded Coast Salish Territories in a few weeks for the Tsilhqot’in Mass Dance Ceremony on Dec 13 (https://www.facebook.com/events/399603263506395/) and Bring the NOIIse: A celebration of 10 years of NOII on Dec 15 (https://www.facebook.com/events/654064921282986/)
On Monday December 16th, join us in a powerful panel to hear about ongoing frontline struggles by these communities to protect their lands, to assert their nationhood, and to defend their ways of life. These communities have all been asserting and exercising traditional governance, laws, and jurisdiction and have taken up courageous actions to stop mining, oil and/or gas development in their territories.
