We Are The Stronghold Ottawa

Queen St. Fare, 170 Queen St.

In solidarity with actions taking place on unceded and sovereign Wet’suwet’en territory and in support of the hereditary chiefs and land defenders holding the line, the International Indigenous Music Summit team are organizing a concert series and social media initiative: WE ARE THE STRONGHOLD.

#WEARETHESTRONGHOLD is an important gathering of solidarity spanning across the country to raise awareness for the actions happening on Wet’suwet’en territory, and to raise funds for legal actions to defend their rights and title from unwanted industrial activity, and to hold governments of Canada accountable to climate commitments for future generations.

Funds raised will be directed to the Wet’suwet’en legal defense fund for land, air, and water through their partner RAVEN Trust, a non-profit charitable organization engages people to donate, organize, and crowdfund to provide financial resources so that Indigenous Nations in Canada can access the justice system. We stand behind Nations who take legal action when industrial development threatens traditional ways of life, human rights, or the ecological balance upon which we all depend.
