URGENT: Militarized RCMP officers have descended onto the Wet'suwet'en Nation and are trying to force a path for a massive fracked gas pipeline.

Coastal GasLink wants to construct a massive fracked gas pipeline through... Wet’suwet’en territory, the same territory that was recognized by the Supreme Court as being governed by the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs. And worst yet, the RCMP also set up 'exclusion zones' for media and bystanders to ensure that no cameras see that it is acting on behalf of Coastal Gaslink.

All five clans of the Wet’suwet’en have unanimously opposed all pipeline proposals and have not provided free, prior, and informed consent to Coastal Gaslink to do work on Wet’suwet’en lands. Despite this, Coastal GasLink was granted an injunction by the BC Supreme Court to forcibly clear a path through Wet’suwet’en territory to continue work on its pipeline.

Rallies are being planned for today (Tuesday) all across Canada in support of Wet’suwet’en -- and there’s one happening near you. Can you make it?

According to the Wet'suwet'en Access Point on Gitdumden territory, who issued the call for international solidarity, “All Wet'suwet'en Clans have rejected the Coastal GasLink fracked gas pipeline because this is our home. Our medicines, our berries, our food, the animals, our water, our culture are all here since time immemorial. We are obligated to protect our ways of life for our babies unborn.”

The Unist’ot’en Camp is a permanent Indigenous re-occupation of Wet’suwet’en land that sits on Gilsteyu Dark House Territory. The Wet'suwet'en Access Point on Gitdumden territory was announced in the Wet’suwet’en feast hall in December 2018 with the support of all chiefs present to affirm that the Unist’ot’en Clan are not alone.

Together, we can send a strong message of solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en in their fight against Coastal GasLink, for the protection of their territory and for their right for their self-governing of their lands.
