Tiny House Warriors–Legal Defence Fund

May 11, 2020 § Leave a comment

I saw Kanahus Manuel speak at a 350.org/Green New Deal symposium in Vancouver last year, and she described some of the work the Tiny House Warriors have done to confront the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure  on their traditional and unneeded territory. This is also described on their website: “The Tiny House Warriors: Our Land is Home is a part of a mission to stop the Trans Mountain pipeline from crossing unceded Secwepemc Territory. Ten tiny houses will be built and placed strategically along the 518 km Trans Mountain pipeline route to assert Secwepemc Law and jurisdiction and block access to this pipeline.”

For some background on this protest, you can screen the film Tiny House Under Attack on Vimeo. And here’s some news coverage from ATPN on the arrest of Kanahus Manuel during a pipeline protest.

The StopTMX Legal Defence Fund is trying to raise $10,000 for the Tiny House Warriors’ legal feels. Donations can be made at https://stopkmlegalfund.org/donate .

Donations can also be mailed to:
