INFORMATION ABOUT THE RED CHRIS IMPERIAL METALS MINE
The Klabona Keepers in alliance with the Secwepemc lit a estsu kun’desk’āke (Grandmothers Fireplace) at the entrance of Imperial Metals Red Chris Mine to gather the Indigenous and settler communities to unite, and in one voice demand action. This fire is lit under the collective jurisdictions of all Nations connected by the water and the salmon and has been lit to halt the Red Chris Imperial Metals mine operations until further notice out of concern for their community of Iskut, which is located only 18km away from the mine site.

Shut Down Imperial: Unceded Coast Salish Territories
From the Mount Polley tailings pond disaster to the Red Chris mine, Imperial Metals is convinced they can operate with impunity on unceded lands. This is not the case.
We are gathering outside of Imperial Metals office in so called Vancouver to demand they respect the land defenders who's unceded lands they are operating on. This event is in solidarity with the Klabona Keepers and the Secwepemc Land Defenders who are standing up as protectors of the salmon, water and land.
