UBC Marches in solidarity with Elsipogtog First Nation

Students from the UBC Social Justice Centre are calling on EVERYONE to stand in solidarity with the land defenders in Elsipogtog. An injunction has been issued by the New Brunswick provincial court which effectively denies Elsipogtog and their supporters their right as Canadian citizens to protest. The RCMP are being used to protect private interests, using force to silence peaceful protests.

***We ask that all participants act in a peaceful and respectable manner***

Guest Speakers:

Gordon Christie
Associate Professor; Director, Indigenous Legal Studies Program | Faculty of Law at Allard Hall 

Other speakers TBA
