The Canadian government is doubling down on efforts to build the Trans Mountain Pipeline, which would run from the tar sands to the west coast, through salmon-bearing streams, parks, and Indigenous communities. Three First Nations — səl̓ilwətaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and C’eletkwmx (Coldwater) — are taking the federal government to court over the construction of the pipeline.

We’re holding a fundraiser to support their legal challenge, featuring a rad panel, creative performances, and a silent auction. Come out and show up for Indigenous sovereignty and climate justice! And help us share our fundraising page far and wide! https://tiny.cc/no-pipelines

This is a ticketed event, with tiered tickets at $10, $20 and $40 [Eventbrite link to come shortly]. All proceeds go to the Pull Together campaign (https://pull-together.ca/). Folks who are under-waged or can’t afford the price of tickets will not be turned away!

Event schedule:
7:30pm – Doors open
8:00pm – Panel featuring Khelsilem (Squamish Nation), Umair Muhammad (Jane & Finch Action Against Poverty) + more TBA
9:30pm – Creative performances by Artists for Climate & Migrant Justice and Indigenous Sovereignty + more TBA

There is a cement ramp leading to a manual double door entrance, and two gender-neutral washrooms on the main floor, with one accessible stall in each.
