Some recent vistors to the camp, including members of the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society.
Check out the latest fundraiser being organized by some of the camp’s supporters.
From the fundraising page:
“You’ve clicked, you’ve signed, you’ve rallied against the tar sands and fracking pipelines.
You are proud to be part of the movement to protect Mother Earth from irreversible catastrophic climate change.
You say you are prepared to join the blockades if and when it comes to that.

So what can you do at this moment?
Resistance to the un-natural gas industry runs coast to coast, with many communities united in solidarity on this crucial issue. Representatives from two of those communities met face to face on the front lines, when members of the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society made a visit to their comrades at the Unist’ot’en Camp this January.
The visit was part of a West Coast/Prairies/Southern Ontario Speaking Tour that brought members of the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society in contact with allies and supporters in many far-flung places, and allowed them to build new contacts and alliances in this struggle to protect our lands and communities.
The Unist’ot’en Camp is a resistance community whose purpose is to protect sovereign Wet’suwet’en territory from several proposed pipelines from the Tar Sands Gigaproject and shale gas from Hydraulic Fracturing Projects in the Peace River Region.
Wet’suwet’en territory, which extends from Burns Lake to the Coastal Mountains, is sovereign territory which has never been ceded to the colonial Canadian state; the Wet’suwet’en are not under treaty with the Canadian government. Their territory, therefore, is and always will be free, and belongs to the Wet’suwet’en people alone.
Since July of 2010, the Wet’suwet’en have established a camp in the pathway of the Pacific Trails Pipeline. (more…)
