Help Shut Down Imperial-- Emergency Legal Funds - Klabona Keepers

Discussion in 'Media' started by futuretogether, Nov 19, 2014.

  1. On November 25th Imperial Metals and the TCC(Tahltan Central Council - BC society) are taking the Klabona Keepers to court for a long term injunction that if granted will keep the Klabona Keepers off of their traditional territory and unable to blockade Red Chris mine, a project that threatens their culture, people and the Sacred Headwaters watershed. The Klabona Keepers have always functioned traditionally by living out their ancesteral responsibilites to future generations led by their elders who use, occupy and have lineages to this land.
    They urgently need legal funds right now to be able to represent themselves in court and continue protecting their territory. Their community is over 6 hours from Terrace where the court case is being held. Elders and families need support to get there and represent themselves as well as cover legal fees.
    After the Mt. Polley tailing pond spill distaster by Imperial Metals, Klabona Keepers blockaded Red Chris Mine, which is also owned by Imperial Metals, it is larger then Mt.Polley and has the same tailing pond design. With the company not being held accountable the Klabona Keepers launched a blockade at the entrace to Red Chris Mine and were taken to court. Imperial Metals was granted a temporary injunction and a later hearing of the permanent injunction, which is happening November 25th.

    For many years the Klabona Keepers have been courageously fighting large scale industrial development. They are known internationally for kicking Shell Canada out of their headwaters and every year continue to go up against industrial development that does not have their consent.

    Please donate and stand with a group of families and elder living on and protecting their traditional territory in the Tl’abāne, the Sacred Headwaters of the Stikine, Nass and Skeena Rivers.
