Tell the BC NDP to stand down

Dear Paov,

I’ve been anxiously watching social media for a week now. RCMP are mobilizing on Wet’suwet’en territory 1,000 km north of Vancouver to remove Indigenous land defenders from the path of the Coastal GasLink pipeline.

The land defenders need your solidarity now from all over Canada and the world.

A year ago, heavily-armed RCMP launched a military-style operation against these peaceful protestors — now they’re poised to do so again. Can you take a moment to call BC cabinet members and demand they stop that from happening? Your call is even more impactful if you are a constituent of one of them so be sure to mention it.

Call Now! All five clans of the Wet’suwet’en Nation are opposed to the pipeline, which would bring fracked gas from northeastern BC to LNG Canada terminal in Kitimat. That project would never have moved forward without Premier John Horgan’s support. He knew this is how it would play out. Last year, BC passed legislation to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which requires the free, prior and informed consent of nations whose territories are impacted by megaprojects like Coastal GasLink. The UN is also calling for a halt to construction on the pipeline until consent has been given.

Only provincial officials can direct the RCMP to stand down.

Horgan and his cabinet must hear from Canadians that we oppose these human rights violations being done in our name. We’ve already had 220 people call the cabinet and our goal is for 650 calls by the end of the day tomorrow. Will you stand in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en Nation and call now? Call Now! Keep an eye on the Unist’ot’en Camp Facebook and Twitter pages for more updates throughout the week. Follow #AllEyesOnWetsuweten. Your calls could keep them safe.

In solidarity, Donate |r0.
