People power is making history. So inspired by the thousands of students across 30+ post secondary institutions from coast to coast to coast who walked off their campuses in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en heredity chiefs and land defenders fighting against the invasion of Coastal GasLink pipeline. #WetsuwetenStrong #WetsuwetenSolidarity
We must continue to show up and support the Wet’suwet’en. Learn how:

B.C. students joined others across Canada in a nationwide school walkout organized to show support for the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs.
In Vancouver, Langara College students blocked the intersection of Cambie Street and 49th Avenue Wednesday afternoon.
In North Vancouver, there was a protest around 5 p.m. in the area of Mountain Highway and Keith Road.
And in Victoria, hundreds of university and high school students gathered at the B.C. Legislature, where they stood on the lawn in a circle of ceremony, with the Indigenous youth who have been camped out on the steps for days.
More than 5,000 students across Canada from at least 38 different universities took part in the Wednesday walkout, according to a release from a group called Students in Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en.
UVic student Alison Conibear said it’s important for students to voice their support because they “have the privilege of endless knowledge.”
“[As students], we have to be making the changes we want to see, and this [walkout] is the place for it,” she said.

University of Windsor students, professors, and community members once again took to the streets to stand ten toes down in solidarity with our Wet’suwet’en brothers and sisters protecting their land and the water for everyone. This time, we joined a call for a National Student Walk Out, and we were so excited with the turn out. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for answering the call with us and setting an example for everyone else.

We can imagine a world where we don’t break colonial laws to take advantage of Indigenous people and exploit them even more than they already have been. We can imagine a world where colonial laws arent even there in the first place. A world where decolonizing is the priority. Lets fight for it today. ✊🏽
