7 Things to Know About the RCMP Invasion of Wet'suwet'en Yintah - Pam Palmater


In the midst of British Columbia's state of emergency, where the military has been sent in to rescue people trapped by massive flooding and mudslides, the RCMP decide to send in over 50 heavily armed officers to violently remove Wet'suwet'en peoples and their relations from Wet'suwet'en Yintah (territory). Canada refuses to heed the calls by the United Nations to stop Coastal Gaslink pipeline and remove RCMP and their weapons from Wet'suwet'en lands.
In this video, I try to answer the most frequent questions I get about these grave human rights violations against peaceful Indigenous land defenders trying to protect their waters from pipeline contamination. As I state in the video, I am not a spokesperson for the Wet'suwet'en. I offer these videos as a form of public education in solidarity with Wet'suwet'en land defenders, traditional leaders and clan members trying to protect their lands, waters and peoples.
