Protect the Planet starts a camp action on Monday August 7. It's the first in a series of camping actions and educational pickets to Stop TMX. Activists will set up for 2-3 days at a time at various locations with active construction.
We live on the stolen & unceded territory of many Nations who have been protectors and friends of the Salish Sea and its watersheds since time immemorial. We are humbly grateful, especially to the host nations of ḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), Xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations, for allowing & welcoming us to be here, and do this work in a good way on their traditional sacred lands.
We commit to honouring their leadership & being open to their teachings. We are honoured by the chances being offered to work alongside them as protectors of this sacred and beautiful land. We believe Land Back will begin to correct some of the wrongs of the past, and commit to supporting campaigns that lead in that direction.
