Stand with the Tsilhqot’in : World Water Day

Friday March 22, 2019 – World Water Day – we ask that you join us in Vancouver in support of the Tsilhqot’in Nation’s fight to protect Teztan Biny (Fish Lake).

In summer 2017, BC granted a controversial drilling permit at Teẑtan Biny (Fish Lake) for Taseko Mines Ltd.’s New Prosperity Mine, which was twice-rejected by the Government of Canada and cannot be lawfully built as matters stand. The Tsilhqot’in Nation continues to challenge this effort and will be back in court on Friday, March 22nd, seeking an injunction. We call on all supporters to stand with the Tsilhqot’in at this critical time.

There are two events in Vancouver on March 22nd:
