Visionaries Gathering stands in solidarity with Tiny House Warriors and Kanahus Freedom Manuel in their fight for their sovereign right to the management of ancestral and unceeded sacred lands and waters of the Secwepemc.
We denounce the Canadian government and its laws for using institutions such as the RCMP to harass Indigenous peoples on their territories and the communities instating the colonial power over the people's rights in accordance to the United Nations Declaration on Indigenous Peoples Rights:
"Article 3 Indigenous peoples have the right to self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
Article 4 Indigenous peoples, in exercising their right to self determination, have the right to autonomy or self government in matters relating to their internal and local affairs, as well as ways and means for financing their autonomous functions.
Article 5 Indigenous peoples have the right to maintain and strengthen their distinct political, legal, economic, social and cultural institutions, while retaining their right to participate fully, if they so choose, in the political, economic, social and cultural life of the State."
