Fundraising to Support Indigenous Land defenders

Posted by admin on Jul 9th, 2012

This August, the 3rd Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp against propose and approved mining and pipeline projects will be held in Wet’suwet’en territory. The Lhe Lin Liyin, who are hosting the camp, have sent out an open invitation, including a special invitation to Indigenous land defenders to attend. Indigenous peoples are disproportionately impacted by industrial development with high rates of toxic waste, pollution and ill health in their communities, as well as systemic poverty through the encroachment into and destruction of their territories. Indigenous efforts stop this destructive path, for the future generations, for the biodiversity, and for solidarity will be strengthened by being able to share their histories, cultures, stories, and struggles across different communities and nations.

Release: Pacific Trails Pipeline Evicted by Unist’ot’en and Likhts’amisyu

Posted by admin on Nov 16th, 2011

TO ALL NEWS EDITORS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PACIFIC TRAILS PIPELINE EVICTED BY WET’SUWET’EN IN INTERIOR OF BC

November 15, 2011 – Setting up a road blockade with signs “Road Closed to Pacific Trails Pipeline Drillers”, an alliance of the Unist’ot’en and the Likhts’amisyu of the Wet’suwet’en Nation have evicted and escorted out Pacific Trails Pipeline drillers and their equipment.

According to Wet’suwet’en hereditary chief Toghestiy, “We evicted Pacific Trails Pipeline drillers from our territory this weekend. The drillers in one vehicle actually cheered for our blockade and one driller told us ‘Nobody wants to see any pipelines in the North – especially one that operates as dirty as this one. Have a good day guys and good luck.’”

“Pacific Trails Pipeline had moved in equipment to do directional drilling around Gosnell River where our salmon spawn. Their exploratory drilling and whole pipeline proposal will spell certain disaster in the Peace River area. We have to protect our sensitive aquifers from the destruction of pipelines – from the Alberta Tar Sands to our side of the Rocky Mountains. You cannot make compromises with the life-sustaining force of water” continues Toghestiy.

CHRISTY CLARKE IS LYING: NO INDIGENOUS CONSENT TO PIPELINES AND MINING!
Statement of the Second Indigenous Assembly Against Mining and Pipelines

November 6, 2011 Unceded Coast Salish Territories- Indigenous communities from across the province are gathering in Vancouver, Unceded Coast Salish Territories this weekend to oppose destructive mining and pipeline practices.

The Assembly is a united response to the Canadian Aboriginal Mining Association’s conference being held at the Pan Pacific Hotel this week. This pro-mining “Meeting Minds, Making Mines” Conference is seeking to create economic certainty for mining corporations operating on non-treatied unsurrendered native land. Grassroots Indigenous communities, however, are opposing these plans and have come together in the Second Indigenous Assembly Against Mining and Pipelines.
