Yuct Ne Senxiymetkwe Action Camp

Mt Polley Disaster two-year Anniversay - Aug. 1-5

Monday August 1 2016 (All day)
Friday August 5 2016 (All day)

Venue: Yuct Ne Senxiymetkwe Camp

Aug. 1 marks the two-year anniversary of the largest environmental disaster in British Columbia's history - the Mount Polley mining disaster. Shortly after, several Secwepemc women lit a sacred fire and setup Yuct Ne Senxiymetkwe Camp at the entrance of the mine site to pray for the land and to monitor the disaster.

Aug. 1-5 they return to the site for an all-day anniversary gathering, sacred fire and action camp. As they say, "Indigenous Peoples are at the forefront of the impacts and consequences of climate change. The root of climate change in Canada is the continuing genocide of Indigenous Peoples."

There will be a public event in Vancouver to get updates about the struggle against Mount Polley mine and broader mining justice struggles. Then we GET ON THE BUS to Yuct Ne Senxiymetkwe Camp. Please spread the word and consider attending one or both of the events.
