White Supremacists threatening Wet'suwet'en actions throughout country


Share this Email White supremacist vigilante groups have put a call out for people to use violence against blockades throughout the country today. If there is an ongoing blockade or action in your area numbers are needed to keep people safe.

Two Sons of Oden members approached the BC legislature yesterday evening and then surrounded it with trucks honking their horns. Bomb threats have also been made against the Unist'ot'en and Tyendinaga Mohawks.

The Indigenous youth occupying the BC legislature have put a call out for people to stand with them throughout the day today.

While this is incredibly upsetting people are not standing down and new actions are happening every day. It is imperative that people show up and stand in solidarity with the indigenous people on the front lines making sacrifices and standing in harms way for what is right.
