Tiny House Warriors Legal Fund

Help Tiny House Warriors fight criminalization. We are facing legal challenges because we are occupying our land. We are criminalized for doing so and are forced to defend our land in court.
 
The Tiny House Warriors: Our Land is Home is a part of a mission to stop the Trans Mountain pipeline from crossing unceded Secwepemc Territory. Ten tiny houses will be built and placed strategically along the 518 km Trans Mountain pipeline route to assert Secwepemc Law and jurisdiction and block access to this pipeline.
 
The pipeline is one of the most serious threats to our Territories.
 
We have never provided and will never provide our collective free, prior and informed consent – the minimal international standard – to the Trans Mountain Pipeline Project.
 
The Tiny House Warrior movement is the start of re-establishing village sites and asserting our authority over our unceded Territories. Tiny House Warriors village at Blue River so-called BC, Canada, has been established as the leading site since it's the halfway point of the Trans Mountain pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby.
 
 
We are targeted by and surveilled by private security and Royal Canadian Mounted Police for our pipeline opposition. This constant police terrorism has resulted in a continuous legal battle with the crown.
 
 
So far, we've gone to trial three times. Out of that, we had six acquittals and ten convictions. So we have initiated the appeal process for several of those convictions. We've recently been charged with more criminal charges for actions on 15-Sept-2021 at Blue River. Incidents from that day can be watched in AJ+'s short doc on Tiny House Warriors.
 
Kanahus Manuel, the spokesperson for Tiny House Warriors, was assaulted by the police and her wrist was broken. She was acquitted of any wrongdoing after trial, but she is now suing the police for the assault. The lawsuit process has begun and is vital in our pipeline opposition so they can be reminded that we will fight back against all violence against Indigenous women and girls.
 
We are not criminals. We are Indigenous Human Rights Defenders defending our Title and Rights to our unceded territories. Tiny House Warriors was last year's winner of the Carole Geller Human Rights Award for our commitment to defending our human rights. Please help us win this fight and donate to Tiny House Warriors Legal Fund.
 
International Human Rights
 
Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) has adopted a letter related to the information submitted by Secwepemc and Wet’suwet’en peoples regarding the Trans Mountain Pipeline and the Coastal Gas Link Pipeline during its 106th session (11-29 April 2022); click on the link below to view it.  This is the third letter that United Nations CERD has written to Canada about these International Human Rights Violations. So far, Canada has not responded to any of the three letters.
