Road to Ruin: Resisting the Gateway Freeway Expansion

On April 22, 2011 (Mother Earth Day), hundreds of people marched down River Road in North Delta, BC, Canada (unceded Coast Salish Territories) and established the South Fraser Protection Camp -- to disrupt a freeway construction site that was destroying the banks of the Fraser River. It was one of the boldest acts of many years of resistance to the Gateway freeway expansion program, and this film is being released now, five years later, to honour all those involved in the struggle.

It's also being offered as a point of comparison for folks currently engaged in resistance against newer infrastructural atrocities in the area, such as the Kinder Morgan Pipeline expansion, the Massey Tunnel megabridge replacement, and Terminal 2 at Deltaport, as well as coal/LNG/jet fuel terminals in the Fraser Delta, etc.

This film is a DIY, anti-profit, anti-capitalist project. If you like it, please support your local grassroots land defender, or be one yourself. We're no pros but we made an effort to do this compelling tale justice by stitching together everything from news clips to random footage from crappy cameras. We covered a lot of ground but there is much, much more to know if you care to look, or ask. Freedom for the earth, fire for the freeways!
