Native Warriors Claim Responsibility for Taking Olympic Flag
March 7th, 2007
Coast Salish Territory [Vancouver, Canada]
In the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 6th, 2007, we removed the Olympic Flag from its flag-pole at Vancouver City Hall. We pried open the access panel on the pole with a crowbar, using a bolt-cutter, cut the metal cable/halyard inside, causing the flag to fall to the ground.
We claim this action in honor of Harriet Nahanee, our elder-warrior, who was given a death sentence by the BC courts for her courageous stand in defending Mother Earth.
We stand in solidarity with all those fighting against the destruction caused by the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
No Olympics on Stolen Native Land!
