Dogwood News This Week: peace & unity

Email Template r1 Dogwood Your place for news and action Coastal GasLink isn’t the only pipeline planned through the Skeena river watershed. There are three more projects in the works, including Enbridge’s Westcoast Connector Gas Transmission line.

It sounds like a bad dream, but it’s true. Calgary-based Enbridge is back in northern B.C., meeting with Indigenous leaders, trying to build support for a massive fracked gas pipeline.

Wet’suwet’en chiefs have called an urgent meeting of allies starting this Wednesday, July 27, to... discuss how to turn the tide. It’s called the Peace & Unity Summit, and you’re invited to witness this important work.

The two-day summit will bring together people who have dedicated their lives to wild salmon, Indigenous rights and a safe climate future, from all over so-called British Columbia.

Many of my heroes from Tsleil-Waututh, Nuxalk, Haida,Tsimshian, Gitanyow, Gitxsan, Secwepemc, Syilx and other territories will be there in person, with more joining remotely.

Sign up to join online next Wednesday and Thursday. Even if you can only tune in for portions of the summit, I know we would all appreciate the support.

And just yesterday, actor and activist Mark Ruffalo took to social media to promote the Peace and Unity gathering, sharing a message of solidarity with Wet'suwet'en people and their fight to defend their lands. Check it out, and share it with your friends. Image alt text
