Brave land, water and climate defenders are still facing jail time for resisting the dangerous Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project.

Even though a Federal Court quashed the approval of the tar sands pipeline expansion, the Crown is pursuing charges against defenders for opposing a project that should never have been approved in the first place.
Hundreds have already been arrested and charged, and it’s an injustice. Defendants are back in court December 3rd, 5th and 6th and we need to show up and support folks facing trial and time in jail.

Defendants have explicitly requested a respectful court room during trials, and are encouraging those coming to support them to keep a quiet environment while court is in session, refraining from applause and speaking during the proceedings.

The trials will likely be in Courtroom 20, at 800 Smithe St, Vancouver, BC V6Z 2E1, Canada, though is subject to change. It will have scheduled lunch breaks, and will go all day, or into the following days, we will update as the court updates us.
Court is wheelchair accessible, though wait for elevator can be long as requires a security office to move the elevator.

SCHEDULE OF PROCEEDINGS:
DECEMBER 3rd:
10 am
Trial begins for multiple defendants, likely to last all day or into the following day.

DECEMBER 5th:
9am
Three defendants are facing their sentencing, likely 14 days in jail- they have plead guilty and risk being taken to jail following sentencing to serve time.

DECEMBER 6th:
9am
One defendant facing her sentence of 14 days in jail, has plead guilty and risks being taken to jail following sentencing to serve time.

This event is on the unceded territory of the Musqueam Squamish and Tsleil Waututh people.
