Calling all lovers of land and water: you are needed in Northern BC!
Grassroots Wet’suwet’en people have been blocking pipelines from crossing their land and rivers for over four years now. The Unis’tot’en Clan, their spokesperson Freda Huson, Chief Toghestiy, and their allies are occupying their territory square in the middle of the route for several tar sands and fracked gas pipelines, including Enbridge Northern Gateway and Pacific Trail Pipeline.
Pipeline crews are coming ever closer to the roadblock. In October 2014, they were clearing trees from the pipeline right-of-way less than a kilometer from the camp.
We’re appealing for supporters and volunteers to raise the blockade. In the face of growing threats from Big Oil and local bullies, we all need to stand fast and do what we must to defend the land and water from poisonous oil spills and gas leaks.
Last year, unknown individuals tried to burn the camp’s plywood barricade. This fall, a local goon confronted us on the bridge and threatened more arson. Let’s put a stop to these attempts to intimidate those who are protecting their territory.
Unis’tot’en Camp is closing the door on pipelines. The plan is to install a solid metal gate on the bridge over Morice River to keep the pipeline companies out of the territory. We need both funds and volunteers.
Help us raise the blockade, and help Unis’tot’en Camp defend the land and water.
Thank you! Pass it on!
