Dinner, salad, dessert, drinks.
Information and updates on the Unis’tot’en Action Camp
An evening of solidarity and resistance with allies

No One Is Illegal is helping to fundraiser for this camp, in particular byraising funds to support members of other Indigenous communities affected by resource extraction to be able to attend this important camp. Webelieve we must all proactively support opportunities for relationship-building between grassroots Indigenous communities.

As written by the Lhe Lin Liyin, who are hosting the camp: “Ourcommunities and nations are at the forefront of land defense against resource extraction, oil and gas development, mining projects, andcorporate land theft. These colonial developments have had a devastating impact on our water, salmon, food base, spiritual sites, cultural well-being, traditional livelihoods, children and future generations. Butwe have been resisting since time immemorial and by uniting our resistance, we are stronger.”

We will also be doing a food drive for the Unis’tot’en Action Camp. If you can, please bring non-perishable/dry/packaged sugar, coffee, pasta, beans, and rice to the dinner.

We are aiming to raise $1200 through this fundraiser, and so we need you – our grassroots friends, communities, allies – to buy a ticket and spread the word. Your donation will directly support Indigenous delegations who need travel funds to participate in the Unis’tot’en Action Camp, as well as the Unis’tot’en Action Camp itself.
