From the call to action:

This Wednesday August 21 at 12:15 at Hornby and Robson (downtown Vancouver) there will be a gathering in solidarity to support the Tahltan people against Fortune Minerals.

Currently the Tahltan have a protest camp in the Sacred Headwaters where they are working on stopping the development of Fortune Minerals planned open pit coal mine.

Recently the Tahltan Elders served eviction notices to Fortune Minerals. However, they did not leave and are trespassing on Tahltan territory.

The Tahltan fought Shell for ten years from fracking the Headwaters before and now we must show our solidarity in stopping Fortune Minerals from creating an open pit coal mine in Tahltan territory.
