Guelph. Ontario. In addition to the press release below, some participants wanted to add a few reflections:
-“It was great to be out with such a nice group of people wanting to disrupt things. I feel worried about the tendency for actions like this to hold little actual impact and to be so focused on the image for social media.”
-“It wasn’t entirely clear what the goals and objectives were logistically (ie whether or not to block entry) and strategically (mostly to show solidarity/awareness raising, or to affect RBC operations, etc). Clarity in intention is a good future goal to keep in mind.”

On December 31st, 2019 colonial courts attempted to progress colonial processes, handing pipeline company Coastal GasLink (CGL) an injunction against the Wet’suwet’en people on their own land. Unfortunately for them, the Wet’suwet’en said no. Hereditary chiefs from all five clans Wet’suwet’en rejected the court’s jurisdiction on their unceded territory. With the world behind them and watching, the Wet’suwet’en remain steadfast that no pipeline will desecrate their lands and poison their waters. Exactly one year since RCMP invaded sovereign Gidimt’en Wet’suwet’en territory with snipers authorized to use lethal force, the Wet’suwet’en people prepare for another imminent raid. As anarchists and anti-capitalists, our hearts pound with the Wet’suwet’en as they struggle against the state for their autonomy, and for the earth. The time is now to light and act with that same fire.
