Help First Nations fight Northern Gateway in the courts

British Columbia, July 1-December 31

First Nations have built a solid wall of opposition to the Northern Gateway pipeline, and are taking this pipeline to the highest courts in the land to have it stopped. But legal challenges are expensive, so RAVEN Trust and an army of British Columbians banded together to find the resources necessary to win. So far they have raised almost half of the $250,000 goal, and an anonymous donor has pledged to match donations until the end of the year. Donate today. Let’s pull together with First Nations to stop the Enbridge pipeline and tanker project in the courts.
