No Games on Stolen Native Land! Panel on 2010, tar sands and call to disrupt the "Spirit Train" (September 27 & 29)

On September 29th, 2008 (Monday), the 2010 Olympic Winter Games "Spirit
Train" will be coming to Edmonton, Alberta. A call out has been issued
by the Olympics Resistance Network.

On September 27, 2008, several speakers from indigenous communities who
are being adversely effected on unceded territories in "British
Columbia" as well as communities in "Alberta" are coming to Edmonton to
speak about issues surrounding the 2010 Olympic Games, tar sands
development and the negative impacts on human health, self-determination
and the environment.

On Monday September 29th, there will be a demonstration confronting the
Olympic Spirit train as it brings its show through Edmonton. The panel
will detail why these issues need to be understood and opposed as a show
of support for self-determination and against corporate sponsored
development of traditional indigenous territories.

Confirmed speakers include:

Dustin Johnson, Tsimshian Nation: coordinator of North Coast Enviro
Watch and member of Native 2010 Resistance;
Ange Sterritt, Gitxsan First Nation: Member of Native 2010 Resistance;
