The first Indigenous Assembly against Mining and Pipelines was held in Neskonlith, Secwepemc Territories. The second Indigenous Assembly is being planned in Vancouver, Coast Salish Territories to coincide with the pro-mining “Meeting Minds, Making Mines” Conference being held at the Pan Pacific Hotel from November 6-8th. The conference is sponsored by mining corporations and the Canadian Aboriginal Mineral Association who want to want to “sell” and push mining further into Indigenous communities. Brochure here
Indigenous communities from across the province are gathering in Vancouver Unceded Coast Salish Territories to oppose this conference and those corporations who profit off the destruction of the land.
