The Unis’tot’en and Lihkts’amisyu clans of the Wet’suwet’en people are resisting the opening of new mines in their territory, still unceded by any treaty, in the area commonly known as northern British Columbia, Canada. Four energy companies are also planning pipelines across Wet’suwet’en territories to transport products to and from destructive fracking and tar sands extraction sites.
“The 3rd Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp will see a lot of activities around building solidarity and campaign and action planning for communities who will stop the proposed and approved pipelines and mining projects that are unwelcome in the north of Unceded Occupied so called bc and canada. …
“The camp location is at 66km on the Morice River West FSR and is at the shore of the Wedzin Kwah and mouth of the Gosnell Creek. These are all tributary to the the Skeena, Bulkley, and Babine Rivers. The proposed pipelines from Northern Gateway, Kitimat Summit Lake Looping Project, and the Pembina and Kinder Morgan Pipelines seek to cross the rivers at the exact point where the resistance camp is built in Unis’tot’en Territory of Talbits Kwah.
“The Lhe Lin Liyin, along with other strong uncompromising allies will stop this destructive path, for the future generations, for the biodiversity, and for solidarity with our neighbours living amidst the heavy impacts in the Tar Sands Affected areas in Northern Alberta, and regions heavily affected by Fracking Natural Gas and Shale Oil, as well as communities impacted by Refineries, Pipelines, and Fuel Terminals and Port Expansions.”
