Affirmation of traditional territories

Wet’suwet’en Access Point on Gidimt’en Territory March 14 at 5:09 PM · 

The Wet’suwet’en started the preliminary work on the affirmation of our traditional territories, in 1974 – for Delgamuukw & Gisday’wa v the Queen.

23 years later, the Supreme Court of Canada finalized the decision that our kungax (oral history) was valid, and that we had never ceded or surrendered our territories… that the lands that are currently under destruction, have always been ours.

Yet, today, the colonial federal Justin Trudeau & provincial John Horgan governments are continuing to ignore this ruling. They continue to ignore the hereditary chiefs clear demand that CGL stop work, and the BC RCMP remove themselves from the territories.

When we stand and affirm our position, we are faced with mass armed forces – and the forcible removal from our unceded, sovereign territories. This is why it’s important that others continue to stand with us.

The current discussions are not regarding cgl – and are not being done in good faith by the government… or there would be a stoppage of the work while they happen.

We ask you to continue to be heard, and assert that those demands are met.

☆ Bodies to be able to switch out and still maintain coverage as we still have to exist within this monetary colonial system… if you can only offer a few hours out of your day it would be so helpful and a way for others to take a break from all the pressure that is involved with being on the frontlines
