-=-=-=-=- DAY OF ACTION IN SOLIDARITY WITH TS'PETEN DEFENDERS -=-=-=-=-

On Friday, June 6th at 10am the Gustafsen Lake defenders will go before Judge Bruce Josephson for sentencing. The judge has been consistently hostile towards those accused who stood on international and constitutional law regarding unceded Indian land during the ten-month trial.

Wolverine and James 'OJ' Pitawanakwat are still being denied bail and held as political prisoners in Surrey Pretrial Centre for refusing to attourn to his jurisdiction. Given this hostility - and the fact that the judge instructed the jury to convict - there is serious concern about the sentencing; Josephson has been given a 'blank cheque' by the jurors.

People and organisations across the world who support the Ts'Peten defenders are asked to protest on June 6th at Canadian embassies, band councils, parliament buildings etc.

Flood the offices of the Chief Justice of BC, Judge Josephson, Surrey Provincial Courthouse and the politicians with phone calls and faxes (see http://kafka.uvic.ca/~vipirg/SISIS/support.html for fax/phone numbers and addresses). Let the illegitimate colonial authorities know that we will not allow them to criminalize traditional people and their supporters for defending themselves while standing on their own land!

Supporters in the Vancouver area are asked to come to the Surrey Provincial Courthouse on the day of sentencing. Skytrain to Surrey Central, catch the White Rock Centre 321 bus to the corner of King George and Highway 10.

There is an urgent meeting in Vancouver on

Monday, June 2, 1997, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the La Quena Coffee House, 1111 Commercial Drive in Vancouver

to plan and support actions in support of the Gustafsen Lake (Ts'peten) Defenders.

We plan to flood the lawn and cry out against the gross injustices against those falsely charged for defending their rights and land on June 6, 1997, at 9:30 a.m., at the B.C. Supreme Court facility at the Surrey Municipal Centre, 14340 57th Avenue, Surrey, "British Columbia", "Canada"

Please come to this important meeting.
