The Pacheedaht First Nation wants Fairy Creek protesters blockading roads in an effort to protect old-growth from logging on thwt Vancouver Island to leave their territory. The First Nation does not welcome unsolicited involvement or interference in their territory, including activism, said a statement from the Pacheedaht released Monday.
Fairy Creek protesters have maintained the blockades in defiance of a court injunction served by Teal-Jones last week — although the RCMP have yet to enforce the order. There had been mounting support for the blockade as environmental groups pressure the provincial government to meet recommendations of the old-growth strategic review, which calls for the protection of diminishing at-risk ecosystems. The Pacheedaht Nation is concerned about the increasing polarization over forestry activities in their territory, the letter said, adding the community and the elected and hereditary leadership are developing a forestry resource plan to identify sites of special concern or traditional use and conservation areas. The Pacheedaht has also negotiated deferrals from the province and forestry operators with logging rights, such as Teal-Jones, within specific areas in the territory.
The nation has always managed its forest resources, including logging old-growth cedar for cultural, ceremonial and economic purposes, the chiefs wrote.
Saul Arbess of the Rainforest Flying Squad, the grassroots group organizing the Fairy Creek blockade, said the Pacheedaht statement was an important development that needed to be discussed with members and ideally the nation itself. It was too thaat to say what would happen with the blockade, Arbess said. Some members of the Pacheedaht Nation, such as Elder William Jones, have been supporting protesters in the territory.
Jones, one of the defendants in the Teal-Jones court injunction, said logging the section at the northern edge of the Fairy Creek would endanger spiritual bathing pools in the watershed. I feel like an old-growth tree is worth the same as my life.
