Save Fish Lake - Support Survival of Tsilhqot'in First Nation


Save Fish Lake - Support Survival of Tsilhqot'in First Nation

Central BC, Canada

A proposed "Prosperity" gold mine (Taseko corpBrianBergot@tasekomines.com using your email program on your computer">) is predicated on destruction of Fish Lake - the sacred homeland territory of the Tsilhqot'in peoples. http://www.flickr.com/photos/40636479@N06/4987521978/

While the province of British Columbia has approved the mine - without ever consulting Tsilhqot'in First Nation, the federal government's decision is expected to be announced later this month.

Please write Harper.S@parl.gc.ca  to Save Fish Lake and to support Survival of Tsilhqot'in First Nations in central British Columbia, Canada.

The proposed Taseko gold-copper mine threatens Survival of the Tsilhqot'in people.  Tsilhqot'in Fist Nations will lose their homeland if Fish Lake is destroyed for the proposed mine.
