BREAKING – We expect RCMP to begin enforcing the injunction

The following statement and press release indicate the Wet’suwet’en people expect the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to raid the Wet’suwet’en territory today. The court had decided in favor of the Coastal GasLink corporation in their bid to build a natural gas pipeline through the Wet’suet’en territory that will end at a port on the Canadian Pacific coast for shipment.

This is the first of several other pipelines that have been proposed to run through the territory.

Tensions are high because of the violence of the RCMP when the territory was raided a year ago. Documents show the use of lethal force by the police was discussed.

The powerful video below is of Freda Husen explaining why the people at the Unisto’to’en camp in the Wet’suwet’en territory will not leave their land.

BREAKING – We expect RCMP to begin enforcing the injunction on unceded #Wetsuweten territory today.

A statement from the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs says “Coastal Gaslink declined to see this discussion resulting in progress. Therefore, the enforcement of the injunction zone is imminent.”

We are peaceful people and we have every right to protect the land that defines and sustains us. We continue to honour our ancient laws, shaped over millennia to ensure a sustainable relationship with the land; while BC and Canada fail to honour their recent commitments to reconciliation and to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

The world is watching RCMP and CGL’s militarized invasion of our territories. Massih (thank you) to all our allies who continue to use your voices and actions to stand with us. We are protecting our right to exist as Indigenous people, while protecting the land and water for everyone’s future generations.
