Join Rising Tide Coast Salish Territories on Sunday January 24th for Resistance Cabaret III, a solidarity fundraiser for the Madii Lii Camp. The evening will be full of song, spoken word, poetry, and performance.
Date: Sunday, January 24th
Time: doors at 7pm, performances at 8pm
Location: Cafe Deux Soleils, 2096 Commercial Drive (Commercial and 5th) Vancouver, Unceded Coast Salish Territory
What we’re fundraising for:
Luutkuziiwus members involved in the Madii Lii Camp are working to raise awareness about fracking and LFG/LNG (Liquefied Fracked/Natural Gas) transmission in their territory. In 2016, they will be organizing awareness-building workshops in the heart of industrial wastelands, educating people about the effects of this destructive industry, and coordinating resistance with current and future allies.
In order to organize and run these workshops, the Madii Lii Camp requires funds to cover coordination, transportation, and accommodation.
More about the Madii Lii Camp:
The Madii Lii Camp is located at the entrance to Madii Lii territory within the Gitxsan Nation, in Northwest BC. On Aug. 26, 2014, the hereditary chiefs of the territory declared access to the territory closed to all fracked gas (LFG/LNG) pipeline development and other unauthorized industrial activity, and enacted the Luutkudziiwus Territorial Management Plan.

Café Deux Soleils is a semi-accessible venue to wheelchairs and scooters. They have recently completely renovated the bathrooms, installing three gender-neutral stalls. However there is no wheelchair-accessible bathroom.

While the restaurant currently does not have a scent policy and previous patrons will make the space not scent-sensitive friendly, we still do ask attendees to try to make it easier for folks with scent sensitivities to be there by not wearing perfume, cologne, and other scented-body products.
