Wet’suwet’en Solidarity – DC

I am so happy to see more support for the Wet’suwet’en in the United States: “Wet’suwet’en Solidarity DC
The Facebook group I share my blogs on is “US Support for Wet’suwet’en

In this segment, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Daniel Dixon, an organizer with Wet’suwet’en Solidarity DC, to talk about the blockades and resistance actions shutting down Canada in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en people’s struggle against the Coastal Gaslink pipeline, Ontario Provincial Police arresting land defenders blockading a railway in Tyendinaga Mohawk territory, the ways ongoing violent repression by the Ontario Provincial Police and Royal Canadian Mounted Police undercuts Canada’s international brand as the US’ kinder, gentler northern neighbor and how the ongoing struggle to resist the Coastal GasLink pipeline ties into the broader 500-year ongoing struggle against colonization and settler-colonialism.

We just disrupted Marc Garneau, the Canadian Minister of Transport, in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en nation during his speech at the Canadian Embassy in D.C.!
Indigenous peoples, from the Tyendinaga Mohawks to the Indigenous youth occupying the B.C. legislature, are literally fighting for their lives. This is life or death, everything is on the line here.
Kill the pipeline, save the land! Respect Indigenous sovereignty!

The Wet’suwet’en people have been putting their bodies on the line in Canada to defend their rights and their land from a destructive fracked gas pipeline. We’re occupying the pipeline company (TC Energy — the same company behind Keystone XL)’s DC office in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en Nation. No pipelines on Indigenous land. No climate-wrecking pipelines anywhere. #WetsuwetenStrong

This morning we visited the D.C. offices of TC Energy, the oil and gas company leading the Coastal GasLink project, to serve an “eviction notice” in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en people and Unist’ot’en Camp.
TC Energy off Wet’suwet’en land!

    Hello,I want to unsubscribe from these emails but the links don’t work for me.  Please remove my name from your mailing list. I am a resident of British Columbia and find information reaches me faster than you!  So there is a lot of duplication and extra emails.  I wanted mostly to see what Quakers are doing and am so encouraged by your support in the US.  Thank you. Barbara.
