Anti-pipeline protesters at a campsite in Burnaby, B.C., are defiant in the face of an eviction orderfrom the city that kicked in at 6 a.m. PT Saturday.

Kwitsel Tatel, a Coast Salish woman who speaks for the camp, said the eviction notice was wrongfully issued without proper consultation and consideration, and the group will not be leaving.

“Camp Cloud will not be evicted. We are the Coast Salish and unceded other tribal groups of so-called British Columbia and people from all four directions [are]exercising our rights guided by we, the Coast Salish,” Tatel said Saturday morning.

Camp Cloud was erected at Shellmont Street and Underhill Avenue in November 2017 as a gathering point for people opposed to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.
