#WetsuwetenStrong

The RCMP still remain on Wet’suwet’en territory despite “offering” to leave.

Tell Trudeau out means out and to meet with Wet’suwet’en chiefs and stop the Coastal GasLink pipeline.

A,

Three weeks after the RCMP violently raided Wet’suwet’en territory for Coastal GasLink’s fracked gas pipeline, the Prime Minister still won’t call off police presence on Wet’suwet’en territory.

The Wet’suwet’en have their rights and lands to protect, and yet Trudeau is stubbornly protecting Coastal GasLink. It’s time Trudeau took reconciliation seriously and met with the Wet’suwet’en -- without the presence of police with assault rifles.

Thousands of land defenders have taken to the streets, the rails, and investor offices - pushing the Canadian state to recognize Wet’suwet’en sovereignty. Trudeau is putting corporate interests before Indigenous rights. He needs to hear now that there is overwhelming support for the Wet’suwet’en.

The Tyendinaga Mohawk community and allies have been holding a rail blockade on their territory for over two weeks in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en, and... were just removed in a violent raid by the police yesterday. Without your support today, Trudeau will keep pandering to oil and gas company profits instead of honouring Indigenous rights.

Will you send an email directly to Trudeau today calling for him to get the RCMP off Wet’suwet’en territory?

The images are heartbreaking, A -- Wet’suwet’en matriarchs being arrested in the middle of a ceremony for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. Sniper rifles pointed at peaceful protestors. Bulldozers plowing through sacred sites.

This is Trudeau’s version of reconciliation -- and we need to show him that this is unacceptable.

With police at the door step, now more than ever, we need to show our solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en and the countless blockades and actions being taken by land defenders.

Trudeau needs to get the RCMP off Wet’suwet’en territory and engage in nation-to-nation discussions, as he promised in so many of his pretty-worded speeches.

Send an email today in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en.

SumOfUs members like you have shown up in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en for over a year. When the RCMP was about to raid their territory in 2019, over 12,000 members like you made calls to key politicians and donated thousands to their legal defense fund.

Fighting a pipeline is a long battle and one made harder if the government is employing the same violent colonial methods it did to conquer the country. Now is the time that we can force the government to change the relationship to Indigenous nations and protect human rights and the environment.

Send an email today in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en.
