This event is at 730pm.
Please forward to your contacts.
You are invited....
TREATIES, COLONIZATION & RESISTANCE: July 14th, 2008, 730pm.
Open to the Public.
In 1858, the new colony's governor, Sir James Douglas, read the official proclamation
that cemented the colony of 'BC'. In 1974 a provincial secretary for 'BC' stated:
"We feel that a holiday should be dedicated to the pioneers who
built the colony of British Columbia..."
2008 marks a memorial for Indigenous people
in occupied British Columbia: 150 years of
colonization, child apprehensions, physical and cultural genocide,
land theft and oppression.
With the upcoming 2010 Olympics,
this oppression escalates and most of us are feeling the effects.
Monday, JULY 14th 2008 730pm:
150 Years of 'BC'
Multi Media Presentation with Art Manuel (INET, Secwepemc) & Dave Dennis
