Jazz guitarist John Inder, founder of the popular Jazz & Justice series, has assembled a stellar quartet for this occasion.
Marlene Hale, a Wet’suwet’en elder, will present the latest news from the West Coast. She will speak about her activism regarding the Unist’ot’en /Wet’suwet’en situation. Marlene is currently working hard on the Fairy Creek issue (there has been a lot of strife between forestry workers and land defenders in this rare unlogged old-growth valley on Vancouver Island).
All proceeds of this event will go to the Wet’suwet’en legal defence fund which is helping the Wet’suwet’en to protect their unceded territory from Coastal Gaslink pipeline construction.
The Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs have launched two legal challenges to defend their rights and title from unwanted industrial activity and to hold the governments of Canada and British Columbia accountable to climate commitments for future generations.
