REAL TALK: We Stand with Standing Rock
November 9, 2016- 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm
For this edition of Real Talk, we’d like to turn our attention towards the many issues surrounding the Dakota Access Pipeline protests at Standing Rock, where Water Protectors have been violently attacked, arrested, and mistreated while in custody – for standing in peaceful, prayerful protest.
We’d like to take this opportunity to show our solidarity with an open forum for discussion. All are welcome, invite your friends! Please bring an open heart and an open mind.
There is no cover charge. Donations are appreciated but not required to attend! All cash donations will go to support West Coast Women Warriors Media Cooperative, who are on the front lines as the media team for Red Warrior Camp. They are currently raising funds for a winter-ready media centre, including a yurt, wood stove, firewood, satellite communications and media gear.
If you’d like to donate necessary supplies to the Water Protectors, we will be collecting items and sending a package down to Sacred Stone Camp on Saturday November 12th.
Full list of supplies needed here – please do not bring clothing unless it is very warm winter wear, and in good condition! http://
This discussion series is an open-mic format, with minimal moderation. We aim to create an inclusive space for all to share their opinions, experiences, goals, and anything else that might come up. Speaking is not mandatory, but active listening is important.
In order to ensure that everyone who wants to speak is able, we encourage everyone to keep their sharing at around 10 minutes max, and may step in to keep things moving as needed.
This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
