Join The Unis'tot'en Solidarity Bloc At Defend Our Coast!

Events

While we gather in Victoria to engage in a symbolic act of civil disobedience, the Unis’tot’en will continue their direct resistance as they stand in the way of the proposed pipeline corridor. The most immediate threat to their safety is the proposed Pacific Trails pipeline, which intends to carry shale gas from the fracking fields in Northeastern BC to Kitimat for overseas export via LNG tankers. If successful, Pacific Trails would clear a right-of-way path for Enbridge Northern Gateway which wants to follow the same route.

Dear Friends and Allies,

While we gather in Victoria to engage in a symbolic act of civil disobedience, the Unis’tot’en will continue their direct resistance as they stand in the way of the proposed pipeline corridor. The most immediate threat to their safety is the proposed Pacific Trails pipeline, which intends to carry shale gas from the fracking fields in Northeastern BC to Kitimat for overseas export via LNG tankers. If successful, Pacific Trails would clear a right-of-way path for Enbridge Northern Gateway which wants to follow the same route.

On the day of the Oct 22nd Defend Our Coast and civil disobedience action in Victoria, CASGW is calling for an Unis’tot’en Solidarity Bloc to be present as support and also to invite participants to make stopping Pacific Trails a priority as well as the more publicized Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipeline projects.

For the past three years, the Unis’tot’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en people have maintained a cabin on their traditional territory directly in the path of the proposed pipeline corridor through Northern, BC. Asserting their right to Free Prior and Informed Consent as indigenous people, the Unis’ tot’en have made the decision to not allow any fossil fuel pipelines through their territory in order to protect the waters and the land for future generations.

As community allies, we feel we are strongest when we stand together. That means recognizing the links between individual struggles. As we stand to Defend the Coast, we also stand in solidarity with impacted communities all the way along the proposed pipeline route. No community should be left behind simply because their cause cannot be fitted into a convenient NGO framework.

As we work to stop the expansion of Tar Sands infrastructure into BC, the ultimate goal must always remain shutting down the Tar Sands themselves. To that end we must recognize and support the work of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation and their historic constitutional challenge against Shell .

No to Tankers! No To All Pipelines Threatening Indigenous Lands! No Fracking! No Tar Sands!

About CASGW:

At the third annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp this summer, community allies from all over BC and beyond converged for a week of training, workshops, and discussions. From discussions between the Unis’tot’en and allies who wanted to make a long-term commitment to solidarity work with the community, Community Allies Supporting Grassroots Wet’suwet’en was formed.
