51 Dineen Drive, Fredericton, New Brunswick E3B 5G3
Students of St. Thomas University will be hosting a rally to stand in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en, and demand action from the University.
The rally will begin at 12PM at STU in the upper courtyard between Brian Mulroney and Margaret Norrie McCain Hall.
Wet’suwet’en land defenders are protecting their land from the Coastal GasLink project which is proposed to run through their traditional, unceded territory.
The Coastal GasLink project is owned by TransCanada Energy – a company which STU funds and profits from every year.
The goal of this rally and demonstration is to request a public statement of solidarity from St. Thomas University.
Solidarity from the University requires a commitment to divest its endowment from TransCanada Energy and all other fossil fuel companies, which threaten Indigenous land rights and reconciliation, as well as environmental and social justice.
All students, staff, faculty, alumni and members of the community are encouraged to attend the rally.
All are invited to meet on Wednesday, Feb. 26th between 3-5PM in the Wabanaki Centre for a poster making and strategizing session.
