n March 5th and 6th 2016, hunger strikers will go into Day 3 and 4 of their action in solidarity with Site C/Treaty 8 Stewards of the Land Camp, dismantled by the RCMP on orders from the B.C. Supreme Court. Both days are fully scheduled with actions, music, workshops and performances.

The hunger strike is called immediately following the RCMP’s attendance the Site C/Treaty 8 Stewards of the Land Camp on Tuesday, March 1st, 2016, only hours after the enforcement order became valid, midnight the same day.

Justice Bruce Butler approved B.C. Hydro’s application for an interim injunction and enforcement order to forcibly remove the Treaty 8 Indigenous Land Defenders and supporters, including local farmers and members of the Peace Valley Landowners Association. 

The hunger strikes will continue to be held outside the BC Hydro Building from 8am to 5pm.

Our demands are the same as the Treaty 8 Stewards of the Land encampment: Halt all construction until judgment in the court case considering Treaty violations in regards to this dam is issued and that this project be reviewed by the BC Utilities Commission before its continuation.
