Pipeline Mounties Seriously Assault Secwepemc and Ktunaxa Warrior Kanahus Manuel.

According to information being shared by family and witnesses through social media on Saturday October 19th Pipeline Mountie Thugs violently assaulted Kanahus Manuel Freedom slamming the young mothers face down into the ground as well as breaking her wrist before taking her and fellow warrior Isha Jules away.

SNRK feature Kanahus Manuel in their video Warriors.

This assault occurred Unceded Secwepemc Territory at the Tiny House Warrior Village which is located at Blue River in so called BC, Canada. According to her Sister Snutetkwe, Kanahus was later transported by ambulance from the Clearwater RCMP detachment to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops in excruciating pain where it was discovered that her wrist had been broken during the RCMP’s assault on her.

Indigenous artist Isha Jules

Kanahus Manuel, daughter of late warrior Arthur Manuel, created the Tiny House Warrior Village as a peaceful protest against colonialism, violence against indigenous women as well as the pipelines and the man camps that the colony intends to impose upon their still and forever unceded territory and people. The Secwepemc have a consistent record of opposing the colonization and destruction of their lands, culture and people which is technically the only position anyone who is being forced against their will into an abusive relationship could take.

It is highly unlikely that any media attention will be cast upon this so Kanahus and Isha’s family members are asking for support them by sharing the news of what has happened to them far and wide to let people know what Canada and the RCMP treat young mothers and peaceful protestors. The reality is is that the only anti-oil patch terrorism I ever heard of was committed by the RCMP who bombed a wellhead at the oil companies request in order to frame anti-oil activists.

For over a hundred a fifty years there has been no consent and there is no treaties that exist between the Secwepemc and these alleged governments who commit these acts. This vicious assault against a young mother is the perfect illustration of what this thing they call reconciliation really is and what Colony is truly about.

Wet’suwet’en Herditary chiefs demand Coastal Gas Link cease work due to destruction of cultural sites.

STATEMENT FROM THE OFFICE OF WET’SUWET’EN 10/4/19

“SMITHERS, BC, October 4, 2019 – The Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs demands that a Cease and Desist Order be immediately issued to the Coastal GasLink Ltd (CGL) pipeline project due to the ongoing destruction of Wet’suwet’en cultural heritage and archaeological sites, and non-compliance with Wet’suwet’en and BC Provincial law.

The destruction of Wet’suwet’en cultural heritage including archaeological sites by CGL crews amounts to cultural genocide, as it erases Wet’suwet’en cultural information from the land and destroys evidence of use and occupation for Aboriginal rights and title.

Since February 2019, CGL has destroyed numerous archaeological heritage sites in Wet’suwet’en territory. In addition to potential village sites, portions of the ancient Kweese War Trail, accompanying culturally modified trees (CMTs), and potential burial sites have been altered and destroyed by CGL work crews. These sites were previously identified to both the Province and CGL, and flagged for CGL’s consulting archaeologists and construction crews. Several “cultural heritage resource” ribbons that were placed along the Kweese War Trail in 2011 by representatives of the Wet’suwet’en were removed by CGL contractors, and replaced with ribbons indicating CGL’s road center-line.

On July 31, 2019, Coastal GasLink acknowledged that construction activities have occurred in areas where no archaeological impact assessments were ever conducted, in stark violation of their permits to operate under Provincial law. The Province has yet to investigate or justify why Wet’suwet’en cultural heritage is being decimated by CGL. The destruction of archaeological sites contravenes BC Provincial law under the Heritage Conservation Act.

The Kweese War Trail is central to Wet’suwet’en cultural identity, traversing several House territories and reaching over the Coast Mountains into Haisla territory. It was in the Kweese War that the Wet’suwet’en received many of the names and crests that are symbols of who we are as a people. Many of those who fought in that war were wounded and where they died along the trail is where their spirits were released. Their bodies traveled no further. The spiritual connection of the Kweese Trail is unique and should not be disturbed.

As Minister of FLNROD, Doug Donaldson has the ability to issue a stop work order for damage caused to the Kweese war trail under the new provisions of the Heritage Conservation Act. A stop work order of up to 120 days can be issued when something of heritage value “is likely to be altered, is being altered, or has been altered.” (HCA 1996, Section 16.1)

The Kweese Trail has been and continues to be irreparably altered. CGL has disclosed non-compliance in several areas to BCOGC archaeological conditions, yet has faced no repercussions from regulatory authorities. The Office of Wet’suwet’en has not been informed of any existing dispute mechanisms or appeals processes available to Indigenous groups regarding BCOGC permitting and non-compliance.

The Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs believe that a stop-work order must be enacted immediately to prevent further loss of Wet’suwet’en heritage by the negligence of Coastal GasLink. The OW takes the loss of Wet’suwet’en cultural heritage and archaeological sites very seriously, as should any company or government agency working within Wet’suwet’en territories.
TAKE ACTION

Contact Doug Donaldson TODAY, and insist he issue a stop work order for Coastal Gas Link:

Statement from Wet’suwet’en Access Point on Gidumt’en Territory

SHARE WIDELY – RCMP have invaded and occupied our territory and are working to establish a police detatchment on Gidumt’en territory without the consent of our people. Our chiefs have entered into an agreement with the RCMP, under the threat of further police violence, to allow CGL to temporarily work within Wet’suwet’en territories until the interlocutory injunction is heard. That agreement, which dictates that all police exclusion zones will be lifted immediately and that our members will have free access to our territories, has already been violated by the RCMP.

Our Elder Rita David of the Gidumt’en Clan is interviewed here, connecting today’s violence with the forced displacement of Wet’suwet’en people over the last 200 years

This invasion will not be tolerated. All eyes on Wet’suwet’en Yin’tah.

Message from Wet’suwet’en United at their Healing Centre

SHARE WIDELY – RCMP escorted some Wet’suwet’en people and chiefs into our own land. They are still not allowing the majority of our people to access our territories. They are still blocking out our supporters and members of the public. Down the road, Gitdumt’en is still under armed occupation by many RCMP.

We expect Coastal Gaslink to enforce their injunction today. The injunction states that if Unist’ot’en does not remove our gates, CGL will remove them for us. CGL is asking for the gates to be completely removed, so that they can start bringing in equipment for a man camp on one of our traplines and our last remaining hunting area. We know that this man camp will threaten the safety of our Wet’suwet’en healing centre clients, and will directly lead to more violence against our Indigenous women and other women in this region and along the Highway of Tears.

This is not over. We will not roll over and allow industry to destroy the last of our lands.

This video features the voices of Unist’ot’en members Brenda Michell and Freda Huson, Chief Lht’at’en of the Unist’ot’en Clan (Doris Rosso) and Chief Na’moks of Tsayu Clan (John Ridsdale), Freda’s father Clan. Our thoughts are with Smogelgem, whose mother’s memorial is today.

Shíshálh In Solidarity With Wet’suwet’en

insolidarity

The world watched in horror once again as another group of innocent people were assaulted and displaced on behalf of the fossil fuel industry.

In this case the military assault was carried out at the behest of Coastal GasLink.
p1073873

What makes this situation particularly egregious is the fact that the traditional Wet’suwet’en people won title to their unceded land Delgamuukw Case by the Supreme Court of Canada, yet Canada still continues to develop it without the permission of the Tradition Wet’suwet’en Governments. band councils are colonial and not legitimate indigenous governments.

The colony did not only break Wet’suwet’en Laws, they also broke their own laws as well as demonstrated how they interpret being a full supporter, without qualification of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. This document which Canada signed does not anywhere state that these rights shall only be honored when corporate interest’s are not put at risk!

We Stand In Solidarity with the Traditional Wet’suwet’en People and insist that their right to self determination over their own lands and communities not be interfered with!
