Resistance without Reservation-brief update

This is a brief update about the Resistance without Reservation convergence that took place over the weekend. We'll let you know more as details are forthcoming.

Over 150 people gathered at Sun Peaks Resort near Kamloops, BC to protest the resorts treatment of local native and its illegal expansion on unceded territory.

Activists marched around the main village and listened to speakers discuss the legality of native land claims, protection of the local environment and colonialism.

Native activists also erected a new structure near the site of the golf course expansion. They plan to stay at the structure they are building there. In the past the RCMP have evicted activists from similar structures despite the resort's disregard for recent supreme court decisions regarding development projects on unceded lands in BC.

As of 5 PM Sunday, the RCMP was observing the activists but had made no move to arrest anyone.
