SKWELKWEK'WELT NOT SUN PEAKS

Oh, Canaduh, your home on Stolen Native Land
Sunday, March 18th, 2007
Sun Peaks Resort, bc, canaduh
12 noon @ the Day Lodge

In honor of Leahanne Dick, Harriet Nahanee & all Warriors who passed on
fighting for our Land.

Rally Against Sun Peaks Destructive Environmental Terrorism, the New Sun
Peaks Road & the Push to Make Sun Peaks a Municipality (like Whistler)

Underground aquifers are being drained & sewage (effluent) is being used to
make Sun Peaks' man-made snow.
Stop this desecration! Water is Sacred!

325,000+ terrorists at Sun Peaks this year, and the new road will bring more
terrorist invasion onto unceded land.
ALL of what the colonials call "british columbia" is UNCEDED INDIAN LAND!
The colonials are all here illegally. Just as they are all over Turtle Island

Sun Peaks has destroyed Sweat Lodges, demolished Secwepemc homes, charged Secwepemc with Trespassing at Skwelkwek'welt and the Queens
Cowboys were on hand to arrest Secwepemc Elders.

Clean mountain water, moose, deer, game, medicines, other Secwepemc
food is being destroyed. Sun Peaks is moving past the boundary of the
resort into untouched, sensitive high alpine eco-systems. Stop Sun Peaks
expansion! 2010 OLYMPICS DESTROYS ALL INDIAN TERRITORIES! STOP THE INVASION & OCCUPATION ON INDIAN LAND! MAKE A STAND TO DEFEND THE RIGHTS OF THE HUMAN BEINGS!

Native Warriors Claim Responsibility For Taking Olympic Flag
March 6, 2007

Coast Salish Territory ["vancouver, canaduh"]

In the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 6, 2007, Native Warriors removed
the Olympic Flag from its flag-pole at vancouver city hall. They pried open the
access panel on the pole with a crowbar and, using a bolt-cutter, cut the metal
cable/halyard inside, causing the flag to fall to the ground.

They claim this action in honour of Harriet Nahanee, an Elder-Warrior, who was
given a death sentence by the bc courts for her courageous stand in defending
Mother Earth.

We stand in solidarity with all those fighting against the destruction caused by
the 2010 winter olympic games.

NO olympics on STOLEN NATIVE LAND!
