Sinixt Nation provides update on Mount Sentinel blockade
Open letter from Sinixt Nation re: Mt. Sentinel Update:
Lim Limt to all the supporters and allies that came and visited us at Mt. Sentinel. Lim Limt again for the donations of food, coffee, firewood and money. And above all, Lim Limt to all the stories and laughs shared around the fire.
The Sinixt Nation has placed a combo lock on the gate at Mt. Sentinel . Any water-users, firewood gatherers, and other community members who maintain cultural relationships with the area are being encouraged to contact the Sinixt Nation for access. Access to BCTS and its licensees is being restricted until further communications and until the concerns of the Sinixt Nation are addressed.
This week the Sinixt Nation was contacted by the contractors to access the road in order to remove the last excavator. This has been the only response the Sinixt Nation has had from the logging companies in two weeks. There has been no response from BCTS or the Ministry of Forests.
The Sinixt Nation has heard rumours that a possible injunction hearing against us could be held mid February. To mark the occasion, the Sinixt Nation plans to hold a bonfire on Feb. 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.Everyone is invited, come on out and Support the Sinixt Nation.
