In order for the organizers to not lose money on the event, which is intended to be a fundraiser, the ticket price has been set at $15 each. We realize this may not be financially accessible to everyone, so please know that no one will be turned away for lack of funds, and the volunteer at the door will be aware of this.

Winter Magic Fundraiser for Standing Rock: Craft Fair and Concert

December 17th, 10am-12am, White Eagle Hall 90 Dock St., Victoria, BC

Come join us on this winter day of December 17th to stand in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux against the Dakota Access Pipeline. 
The Dakota Access Pipeline is 1,100 mile project, planned to run from North Dakota to Illinois. The pipeline has already destroyed many sacred sites, and threatens the drinking water of the Great Sioux Nation, and thousands living downstream. Indigenous people and allies have come together in prayer to protect the earth and protect the water. In peaceful demonstrations the water protectors have faced military violence and serious injuries. Standing Rock is a fight for Indigenous rights, human rights and the rights of the earth, rights that are being violated by Corporations for profit. The time is now to stand in solidarity with Standing Rock and with all frontlines of Indigenous resistance. We are aware that DAPL easement has been denied and it will be rerouted from crossing beneath the Missouri river, but this fight is not over. Support is still needed for all the water protectors who have made huge sacrifices in order to protect their land. 

We will be donating 50% of the funds raised on this day to Standing Rock. The remaining 50% of funds will be donated to the Secwepemc Grassroots as they prepare to protect their land and stand against the Kinder Morgan pipeline that Trudeau has recently approved. 

Event Schedule:

Songhees elder Joan Morris will be opening the event at 10am.

10am-12pm Workshop on dismantaling colonialism and settler solidarity, by Wulfgang Zapf (by donation).

12:45pm Rose Henry will be speaking.

2-6pm Craft Fair & Raffle, featuring live music.

7pm-12am ~Concert~
Tickets: 15-30 $ (nobody turned away)
- available online
