A VIGIL for Naverone Woods

Saturday, Feb 28, 4:30-6-00pm at Surrey Central Sky Train Station. Naverone Christian Landon Woods was a young 23 year old Gitxsan man who was fatally shot by transit police on Dec 28, 2014. His family describes him as “truly a gentle spirit” who “was respectful to all he came into contact with.” Nav had a special bond with his family and “brought happiness and laughter wherever he went.”  His death at the hands of police was profoundly tragic. It was also incredibly troubling; raising many questions about the use of deadly force by police, the role of armed transit police on our public transit system, and the broader dynamics of racism and colonial violence.
