Wednesday, during a big gathering organized by the Anishinabe of the forest of La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve, a bailiff showed up… to serve a letter of notice to logging company Louisiana Pacific!

The company is summoned before the court on Friday morning, August 15th, at Montreal Palais de Justice. The judge will examine an emergency request of the Anishinabek to force a stop to the logging in some sectors of La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve. The decision to emit an injuction to that effect, or not, will be made the same day and will be immediately effective.

Friday morning at 9:00, we invite you
– to join us in front of the Palais de Justice for a solidarity gathering;
– and then to attend the court hearing in numbers. It promises to be extremely interesting, and a potential turning point of this fight.

*** Please note that the exact time of the event could change, as well as certain details.

See you soon!
