After the brutal raid by Canadian federal cops on Wet’suwet’en land defenders, stopping a fracked gas pipeline, solidarity actions took place in over 60 cities around the world. Today the attack by the Canadian state continued but solidarity actions are also ongoing…
Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
Tens of thousands took to the streets today to #ShutDownCanada in solidarity with #WetsuwetenStrong and the #UnistotenCamp in the face of continued Canadian state violence for the sake of expanding the black snake. Check out our roundup of all the action. https://t.co/HDuS7bwYDd pic.twitter.com/v9kg2KCHoe— It's Going Down (@IGD_News) 9. Januar 2019
Video below: Molly Wickham, Gitdimt’en spokesperson provides a detailed account of the police raid and arrests (January 9, 2019).
January 9, 2018 Wet’suwet’en Yintah
RCMP are on the move again this morning toward Unistot’en camp with this “peacekeeping” device. They spent yesterday clearing the road between the Gitdimt’en and Unistot’en checkpoints and made it within approximately 10 km of the bridge. Yesterday, jet boats had been passing along Wedzin kwa (Morice River) which is the only other access to this remote camp.
Locals may show their solidarity by attending the Wet’suwet’en Unity Fire at 27 km on the Morice Forest Service Road. This is outside the injunction area so there is no risk of arrest, however it is still advised to not bring children. The RCMP have their inclusion zone blockade set up about 100 meters away.
Note that this is a remote location and the temperatures are well below freezing so come prepared. That is, dress in very warm layers, bring food, water and a chair, have an appropriate vehicle for backroad winter driving, carpools and a CB radio is recommended. If you are able, bring firewood and snacks/drinks to share. There is no cell service after the 7 km mark.
The port of Vancouver has been closed in support of the unistoten, in rejection of the illegal military action of the state against land defenders there. Non port traffic is being divirted. Say no to this crime! Join us at hastings and Clark!#unistoten #WetsuwetenStrong pic.twitter.com/CaOBngt0To— ｋｅｖｏｒｋｉａｎ_ｒｏｃｋｗｅｌｌ (@deadnessdarling) 9. Januar 2019
