Wet'suwet'en Occupy CGL Drill Site and Call for Support on the Ground and Action in Solidarity!

Support on the ground needed!

Full Press release from Gidim'ten Checkpoint:

"The access road to Coastal GasLink's drill site at the Wedzin Kwa river was destroyed. Blockades have been set up and sites have been occupied to stop the drilling under the sacred headwaters that nourish the Wet'suwet'en Yintah and all those within its catchment area. Cas Yikh and supporters have gained control of the area and refuse to allow this destruction to continue.

Days ago CGL destroyed our ancient village site, Ts'elkay Kwe. When Gidimt'en Checkpoint spokesperson Sleydo' attempted to monitor the CGL archaeological team and contest the destruction of Wet'suwet'en cultural heritage she was aggressively intimdated by CGL security guards. Tensions have continued to rise on the Yintah as CGL pushes a reckless and destructive construction schedule with the support of private security and the RCMP.

Now, CGL is ready to begin drilling beneath our sacred headwaters, Wedzin Kwa. We know that this would be disastrous, not only for Wet'suwet'en people, but for all living beings supported by the Wedzin Kwa, and for the communities living downstream. Wedzin Kwa is a spawning ground for salmon and a critical source of pristine drinking water.

"our way of life is at risk. Wedzin Kwa is the river that feeds all of Wet'suwet'en territory and gives life to our nation." -Sleydo', Gidimte'en Checkpoint Spokesperson

As Coastal Gaslink Continues to trespass, we will do everyting in our power to protect our waters and to uphold our laws. Gidimt'en Checkpoint has issued a call for support, asking people to travel to Cas Yikh Territory to Stand with them."

Video Update from Yintah_access

Warriors Watch Over Wedzin Kwa

"Sleydo’ and Shay speak about the importance of defending Wedzin Kwa. Every day is a fight when you commit to living an Indigenous way of life. They have been trying to kill us since contact. What they haven’t learned yet and what Sleydo’ articulates so perfectly is:

“Our warrior spirits are stronger than they’ll ever be”

Our ancestors fought for our yintah, we have stories of great wars, and we will continue their work.

Today there was another arrest, after release the person was sent to get medical attention in an ambulance. There are no broken bones thankfully and the person is resting comfortably tonight.

We anticipate more RCMP tomorrow. We ask anyone thinking of coming out to support locally please come early in the day, we will have coffee on and a place for you to gather. Check in at 44 km. Covid protocols in place, please bring a mask and a mug.

Cheif Woos Call for support

"Early Saturday morning Cas Yikh and supporters gained control of access to the site where they plan to drill underneath Wedzin Kwah!

We are calling on all supporters to come out and stand with us. If you are not able to come then organize where you stand.

The time is critical now to protect our sacred headwaters, where all the salmon spawn, and protect our clean drinking water! This project would kill not just our way of life but all living things when it leaks all the way downstream.

We are upholding our responsibility as Wet'suwete'en people and fighting for everyone, for all the generations to come."

Gidimt'en Checkpoint Spokesperson Sleydo Calls for Support

"Sleydo calls for all Wet'suwet'en people to come help us defend Wedzin Kwa, for all our future generations. For all Indigenous people that have ever dreamed of liberation we need you now to stand and say:

"The genocide will no longer happen on Indigenous lands!"

We are controlling access to the drill pad site. This project does not have the Free, Prior and Informed Consent of our Dinï ze' and Tsakë ze'

We have said many times within our balhats that no pipelines shall ever cross our territory. Now Wedzin kwa is under imminent threat.

Come to the yintah now.
