Your actions are working!

You all have been throwing down and its been incredible!

Actions have been going off since CGL was evicted from Wet'suwet'en Territory and it has been beautiful. Your organizing is playing a critical role in supporting the demands of the chiefs and holding back the full force of the RCMP.

The call out for ongoing actions still stands!

Check out this Recap of the week of action and these two articles covering recent powerful actions:

Call out for Fundraising

It appears the RCMP and politicians may be planning a prolonged siege in the hopes that we will lose momentum.

However, we will stay strong and this gives us all more time to deepen our organizing.

At the same time it is expensive to maintain the Unist'ot'en Village, Gidimt'en Access Point and the 2 additional camps.

As the Unist'ot'en have noted, "to date, more than 400k has been spent on the injunction proceedings and related Judicial Review." These costs, just to respond in court, are a testament to how inaccessible the legal system is for Indigenous communities to achieve justice.

Funds are needed for upcoming legal costs to see the Judicial Review to completion, cover legal representation in the event of arrests and advance other legal challenges.

This is in addition to the on the ground financial needs for the day to day maintenance of the camps under siege.

Please donate today and consider organizing a fundraiser at a community space in your town or in your living room with neighbors.

Use the Fundraising Protocol and Supporter Toolkit for guidance.

Screening Invasion combined with some of the new videos and then passing a hat would make for an easy to organize fundraiser.

If you're in the Vancouver area, come out to this great fundraiser tonight at 7!

RCMP Checkpoint Blocks Legal Observer Team, Requests Private Medical Information from Doctors Seeking Access


Jan 22, 2020: RCMP have again changed the rules at their roadblock, and have now stated that they will not allow any lawyers onto our territory who are not licensed in BC. This is a clear attempt to target and exclude legal professionals with the Water Protector Legal Collective who were invited onto Wet'suwet'en territory to conduct legal observer training and help us keep the police accountable in the event that they invade our territory.

CGL Still Lacks Permits for Construction Contrary to Horgan's Statements

Contrary to recent statements by Premier John Horgan, Coastal Gaslink (CGL) does not have its final permits to proceed with pipeline construction. CGL is required to submit a report to the Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) addressing the impacts of the project and its proposed mitigation measures. The report is incomplete, as CGL failed to consider or even mention the Unist’ot’en Healing Centre. As a result, Unist’ot’en has requested that the EAO continue to withhold final permits for construction.
