Stand for Free, Prior and Informed Consent
Thank You for Standing
with Gitxa'ala Nation!
You've taken action to protect water, Indigenous rights, and future generations. By doing so you are also supporting RAVEN in our mission to provide access to justice for Indigenous Peoples.
RAVEN's vision is a country that honours the ancestral laws, rights and stewardship values of Indigenous Peoples and their equitable access to the justice system within a thriving natural habitat.
ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
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.
