Wild Resistance, Insurgent Subsistence: BC Anarchists on Native Struggles, Building Community, and Undermining Civilization

From BlackandGreen Review #3

Fracking, tar sands, sour gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG) conversion stations and pipelines; in all cases, it would appear that our native friends up north have been trail blazing persistent resistance to the new wave of resource extraction and distribution. As they seem to typify it, it’s just the new face of colonization, but an old enemy.

I had the pleasure of speaking to non-native green anarchists from British Columbia who have been involved with and supporting these encampments and have been able to give us some more details about the encampments, the challenges that they expose for anarchists and as non-natives, the contexts of decolonization and effective forms of resistance, and, most importantly, the role of community and subsistence.

Road to Ruin: Resisting the Gateway Freeway Expansion

It was one of the boldest acts of many years of resistance to the Gateway freeway expansion program, and this film is being released now, five years later, to honour all those involved in the struggle.

It’s also being offered as a point of comparison for folks currently engaged in resistance against newer infrastructural atrocities in the area, such as the Kinder Morgan Pipeline expansion, the Massey Tunnel megabridge replacement, and Terminal 2 at Deltaport, as well as coal/LNG/jet fuel terminals in the Fraser Delta, etc.

This film is a DIY, anti-profit, anti-capitalist project. If you like it, please support your local grassroots land defender, or be one yourself. We’re no pros but we made an effort to do this compelling tale justice by stitching together everything from news clips to random footage from crappy cameras. We covered a lot of ground but there is much, much more to know if you care to look, or ask. Freedom for the earth, fire for the freeways!
