Video of Mount Polley Blockade


Yesterday the Secwepemc Women’s Warrior Society, blockaded the entrance of the Mount Polley Mine, located in their traditional territory in so called western “Canada.” The blockade was timed for the two year anniversary of the Mount Polley Mine disaster, where a tailings pond dam failed and spilled two million cubic meters of mining waste, devastating the Hazeltine Creek and parts of the Quesnel Lake. During the blockade, which included elders and children, an employee of the mine drove through the crowd injuring a land defender. Below is a statement form the Secwepemc Women’s Warrior Society.
