No pipelines through Unist'ot'en land

No pipelines through Unist'ot'en land

The world watched in horror as militarized RCMP descended onto unceded Wet’suwet’en territories on Monday January 7 2019. Peaceful women and elders were faced with heavy assault rifles. Fourteen land defenders were arrested, including Gitdumt’en Clan spokesperson Molly Wickham. 

The interim injunction was issued and RCMP militarized raid occurred BEFORE the named defendants and Wet'suwet'en Nation has even had a chance to respond in court. They will be appearing in a BC Supreme Court on Jan 31, 2019 to affirm Wet’suwet’en Rights and Title. 

As the Unist'ot'en Camp says, "This fight is far from over. We paved the way with the Delgamuuk’w court case and the time has come for Delgamuuk’w II."

With the attached form, you can still email MPs and BC provincial MLAs. It's always more powerful if you write your own email but in case you need ideas here is an example of email you can send:

I am writing to call on the provincial government of British Columbia and the federal government of Canada to respect the rights, jurisdiction and laws of the Unist'ot'en/Giltseyu-Dark House on their unceded territories, as upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada.
The TransCanada Coastal GasLink pipeline does not have the collective free, prior, and informed consent (FPIC) of the Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs. All the Wet'suwet'en Clans have rejected the Coastal GasLink pipeline.

The provincial and federal government must revoke the permits for this project until standards of FPIC under the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) are met.

In addition, the environmental impacts of this project are huge, and it goes against both the BC Provincial and Federal Government's commitments to address climate change.
