Demonstrations against the PNWER at Whistler, British Columbia, July 26-28.

Resist PNWER Update: Thu 9:30am: The protests have not been cancelled. Several posts have been made to the IMC newswire claiming that the protests have been called off. This is false; the buses are still running and will leave downtown Vancouver, British Columbia from Burrard Sky Train Station & Library Square at 9:00am on Saturday. See this post. PNWER (Pacific Northwest Economic Region) is a Regional Trade Alliance who's policies and activities reflect WTO, FTAA and NAFTA rulings and regulations. On July 26-28, PNWER will be having their annual meetings in the posh ski resort town of "Whistler" located on unceded St'at'imc Territory in "bc."
