Yesterday subMedia.tv witnessed the fierce spirit of the Tsimshian people and their supporters as they faced off with the RCMP, Prince Rupert Port Authority and Petronas LNG workers. The Tsimshiams attempted to disrupt the delivery of a barge with surveying and drilling equipment. The surveyors are subcontractors for Petronas, a Malaysian owned company that wants to build a fracked gas facility on Lelu Island, unceded Tsimshian territory. The Tsimshians have occupied Lelu island and have built a protection camp, to defend the island, and the Flora banks, a sensitive eco-system essential for the survival of juvenile salmon and migrating crustaceans. The Tsimshians have called on supporters to come to Lelu Island and stand with them, bring boats or send money and supplied. For more information visit bit.ly/leluisland
