Leaders of the Unist’ot’en resistance camp held a press conference in Vancouver on April 7, 2014 in response to leaked information that the Provincial government is preparing an injunction against the camp. The camp is in Wet’suwet’en territory in northern BC on the route of the Pacific Trail fracked gas pipeline.
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.
But you know the political and regulatory game is rigged in favour of the fossil fuel industry.
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.
