Residents of Camp Namegans fight for their lives as the City of Saanich applies for a Court order to break up their sanctuary

On Wednesday July 25th, the day after being served with notice of Saanich’s injunction application, the residents of Camp Namegans held a news conference to announce their determination to resist this displacement and their resistance against Canada’s claim to legal jurisdiction and police power on unceded Indigenous lands. In the words of camp founder Chrissy Brett, “It is shameful that the government is trying to break up this community space. Shame on Canada, shame on the Province, and shame on the City of Saanich. If they break up Camp Namegans our people will die; fighting to defend this camp is a fight for our lives.”
