Court Support - Stand with Will

Event by Mountain Protectors. Please join us at the BC Supreme Court to support courageous land defender Will George from Tsleil Waututh, at the Court House on Monday, May 9. We'll be at the Hornby and Nelson entrance of the court. Even though the TransMountain pipeline had supposedly halted expansion construction from Dec 16, 2020 to the end of January, 2021, Will was nonetheless convicted for violating the TMX injunction in Jan 2021. His sentencing hearing will occur on May 9. The Crown continues its long history of systemic racism and colonial violence, as it tries to separate Indigenous people from their land. The Crown is supposed to represent the public interest, but instead is effectively acting as a puppet for the pipeline and wilfully ignoring that stopping or slowing down climate crisis is absolutely in the public interest.
