GAP Action is hosting a fundraising concert in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en and the Unist’ot’en Camp. Join us for an evening of performances, dancing, amazing silent auction items, and information sharing about ways to support the Wet’suwet’en at this crucial time.

“The world watched in horror as militarized RCMP descended onto unceded Wet’suwet’en territories on Monday January 7 2019. Peaceful women and elders were faced with heavy assault rifles. Fourteen land defenders were arrested, including Gitdumt’en Clan spokesperson Molly Wickham.

The interim injunction was issued and RCMP militarized raid occurred BEFORE the named defendants and Wet’suwet’en Nation has even had a chance to respond in court and affirm Wet’suwet’en Rights, Title and Jurisdiction in BC Supreme Court on Jan 31, 2019.

As the Unist’ot’en Camp says, “This fight is far from over. We paved the way with the Delgamuuk’w court case and the time has come for Delgamuuk’w II.””

Location: Red Papaya
When: February 8th, Doors at 830pm- Show starting at 9pm.
Cost: PWYC- suggested 10$.
All proceeds from door and silent auction will be donated to the Unist’ot’en Camp.
