Thanks to overwhelming support and generosity from people like you, the Hupacasath First Nation had the funds needed to take the Harper government to court this past June in an historic legal challenge.
The Hupacasath are fighting the extreme and secretive corporate rights deal known as the Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA), which threatens the environment and public health and exposes Canada to 31 years of costly lawsuits.
And right now they urgently need our collective support once more.
Despite a powerful legal case arguing that the government has a duty to consult First Nations, the federal court sided with the Harper government. But today there is renewed hope. The Hupcasath and their legal team are mounting an appeal of the ruling – but time is short and they can’t do it alone.
That’s where you and I come in.
