Loading the player...

They met in Vancouver during the hunger strike against the dam: Sage Birley and Kristin Henry meet again in the Peace River Valley some months later and discuss about resistance, activism, future and food sustainability. Kristin’s long hunger strike inspired a lot of people and took the battle right into the heart of Vancouver, in front of BC Hydro main office.

About the Project:

Following the route of the proposed gas pipelines from northeastern British Columbia to the Pacific coast, along almost 1000 km from the Peace River Valley to Lelu Island, First Nations and settlers are opposing new developments and are finding new ways to fight for the land and the future. Opposition forms are different and change according to the local situation, but in every camp, in every group, in every occupation of the land, there is one common understanding: respect for nature and aboriginal rights, in search of a sustainable future. In 2016 we spent 4 months along this “corridor of resistance” and found a lot of inspiration.
