Gitxaała Nation is taking B.C. and several “free miners”, including Global Mineral Resources Corporation, to court over mineral claims in their territory that were registered without notification, consultation or consent.
Right now, B.C. allows corporations to stake mining claims in Indigenous territory without even bothering to notify Indigenous Peoples. Gitxaała Nation is asking the court to uphold Free, Prior and Informed consent, and quash the mineral claims on Banks Island.
We area also TRIPLING all donations to their legal challenge until April 30th! Donate at raventrust.com/gitxaala
