HUNGER STRIKER Kristin Henry has Message for Justin Trudeau

Message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau from Kristen Henry
She is on her 15th day of a HUNGER STRIKE!

She is on this HUNGER STRIKE to protest and STOP THE SITE C DAM PROJECT!!


Site C is a proposed 60-metre high, 1,050-metre-long hydroelectric dam on the Peace River on Treaty 8 territory in northeastern British Columbia. It would create an 83-kilometre-long reservoir submerging 78 First Nations heritage sites, burial grounds and places of cultural and spiritual significance in flagrant violation of the Constitution Act, while also flooding approximately 5,550 hectares of ALR land. 
Kristin Henry says she’s pitting her life against the province’s desire to put this through.
“It just has to stop. They’re doing drastic things and it’s kind of calling for drastic measures. They’re going to do everything they can to push this project through and I’m going to do everything I personally can to stop it.”

“We’re running out of clean water. We’re running out of clean land and air. All the things we actually need to survive,” she argues.

The Vancouver woman says the hunger strike is also symbolic because the where the dam will flood is considered good agricultural land and valuable to indigenous people.
