Join us at 4211 Grand Ave in Des Moines, Iowa, tomorrow evening at 5:30 for a vigil in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en people.
Time to Rise Up!: RCMP Invades Wet’suwet’en Territory
Early in the morning on Feb 6th, the RCMP launched their long anticipated raid on Wet’suwet’en land defenders. Six supporters have been arrested, at the 39 km marker of the Morice West Forest Service Road, and a large contingent of RCMP trucks and heavy equipment have moved onwards towards the Gidimt’en Access point at the 44 km marker. The time has come for supporters to rise up and #ShutDownCanada.
Militarized RCMP Raid Gidimt’en Monitoring Post at 39KM
SHARE WIDELY – This morning at approximately 4:30am, heavily militarized RCMP invaded unceded Wet’suwet’en territory to facilitate construction of the Coastal Gaslink pipeline. Dozens of cops with dogs and assault rifles were used to arrest 6 unarmed people.
This was a monitoring post, set up to look out for Wet’suwet’en people further up the road at the Gidimt’en Checkpoint and Unist’ot’en Camp. NO ONE was violating any injunction.
RCMP said they would use the least amount of force possible, but they deployed a full scale invading force.
We have never ceded or surrendered this land and we never will. We stand strong. No amount of force will stop us from being Wet’suwet’en, or living on our lands.
Two camps currently face the prospect of militarized police violence. We won’t back down. All eyes on #Wetsuweten yintah!
