Fundraiser for Indigenous Land Defenders
Sunday April 30th, 7-9 pm
Pipsqueak Gallery: 173 16th Ave, Seattle
$10 – $100 suggested donation
North of the 49th parallel several indigenous frontline camps similar to Standing Rock are stopping a whole series of proposed pipelines from being built in unceded traditional territories. Join us to hear from organizers about their experiences with the camps and how we can all support these indigenous led front lines that are halting the reckless expansion of the oil and gas industry and asserting their claim to their traditional territories.
The event will include videos and stories, and is a fundraiser to cover the costs of material needs for indigenous land defenders.
