VANCOUVER - The Petronas LNG project, one of the front-running proposals in B.C. and slated for Lelu Island in the Skeena river estuary, threatens to decimate the second largest wild salmon run in B.C. Impacted Indigenous groups have not given consent to these projects. At a demonstration tomorrow, representatives of the Luutkudziiwus House Group of the Gitxsan Nation, who have been opposing fracked gas pipeline construction on their territory, and Lax Kw’alaams members, who have been occupying their Lelu Island territory against the Petronas LNG project, will speak about the impacts.
 
“Our Madii Lii territory is not to be played with by the province of B.C. in their LNG game. Clark’s LNG dream is a nightmare for us,” says Hereditary Chief Luutkudziiwus (Charlie Wright).
WHAT: Make Some Fracking Noise - A Community Noise Demo. Demonstration against the International LNG in BC Conference with artwork and creative signs.
WHO: Speakers will include: Joey Wesley, of the Gitwilgyoots Tribe of Lax Kw'alaams, Christine Martin of Lax Kw’alaams, Richard Wright, Spokesperson of Luutkudziiwus of the Gitxsan Nation, Norman Moore, Noola Hereditary Chief House of Luutkudziiwus of the Gitxsan Nation and more!
 
WHEN: Wednesday October 14th at 6:00 p.m. PT
 
WHERE: Olympic Cauldron (1055 Canada Place, near Waterfront SkyTrain Station) in Vancouver. Community groups will march to visit corporations involved in fracking and end up at Canada Place (999 Canada Place), site of the LNG in BC conference and demonstration.
