Join us for an evening where we show a few short films to spread awareness and raise funds for the Unist'ot'en in their ongoing fight to protect their territory from the fossil fuel industry, which is backed by the government of Canada.
We will show a few older short films as well as the newly released film "INVASION" (18min).
The Unist'ot'en are in need of financial support so we will have
Snacks, Baked Goods and Zines available by donation.
Film Language: English

About the Film:
In this era of “reconciliation”, Indigenous land is still being taken at gunpoint. INVASION is a new film about the Unist’ot’en Camp, Gidimt’en checkpoint and the larger Wet’suwet’en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against Indigenous people.
**Full Length Film coming in 2020**
The Unist’ot’en Camp has been a beacon of resistance for nearly 10 years. It is a healing space for Indigenous people and settlers alike, and an active example of decolonization. The violence, environmental destruction, and disregard for human rights following TC Energy (formerly TransCanada) / Coastal GasLink’s interim injunction has been devastating to bear, but this fight is far from over.
