STAND FOR JUSTICE!
STAND with the Tsilhqot'in!
http://raventrust.com/case/tsilhqotin...

The Tsilhqot’in Nation is back in court and needs your help to fend off the latest Taseko legal tactic.

Taseko Mines Ltd has filed two separate judicial reviews arising from the rejection of the New Prosperity Mine — the first seeks to set aside the report of the independent expert environmental review panel, and the second judicial review seeks to set aside the federal government’s rejection of the project.

Taseko is also making a constitutional challenge to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. They are arguing that CEAA 2012 goes too far to protect Aboriginal peoples and that the courts should remove those protections. In an era when Canadians want reconciliation, and better environmental laws, this company is trying to drag us backwards. Once again, the Tsilhqot’in Nation is at the forefront of one of Canada’s most important legal cases.

Meanwhile, Taseko is applying for BC exploration permits to advance the New Prosperity project, despite the federal rejection.

Please support the Tsilhqot'in in their fight for justice!
