This blockade takes place on unceded Pacheedaht territory. It is guided by Indigenous people of this land, who are consulted on all major decisions. We are here as invited guests.
We practice non-violent civil disobedience. Do not bring weapons to camp. There is no tolerance for violent behaviour, destruction of property, or acts of aggression towards anyone.
Everyone at camp is expected to contribute. We recognise that different people have different capacities, and everyone needs breaks and relaxation. However, we are not here to relax, hang out, or party—we are here to work.
We take responsibility for our own needs—physical, spiritual and mental. Self care is a responsibility each of us has to the collective: we must sustain our ability to contribute to our common purpose by sleeping enough, eating well, taking breaks when needed, and so on.
All our camps are dry camps. Do not consume alcohol or use illegal drugs while on site or engaged in any Fairy Creek related activities. It is essential that we have our wits about us at all times.
We practice consent and respect the boundaries of others. Consent (for anything) must be ongoing and can be revoked at any time. Disrespectful and disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated.
We respect elders and are quiet when they speak. We are hospitable and caring toward elders and we honour them with our undivided attention.
We leave no trace and minimise our ecological impact. We strive to walk lightly on the earth, literally and figuratively. We never leave garbage lying around and we pick up what we find whenever possible. We do what we can to reduce our use of products that contribute to ecological harm, locally or elsewhere.
At any time, you may be asked to leave temporarily or permanently. You are expected to be prepared to do so promptly without drawing on collective resources, and have plans for where you can go afterwards. This is not your home (unless you are Pacheedaht) or a permanent community.
