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!

vwet

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!

Oblivion Obtained

Wrapped in a cloak of

Lies, delusions and hatred,

Is where you are because of what you are!

You lash out at beauty because

You are repugnant, vile and dishonorable!

You look in the mirror, an abomination looks back!

That is your soul, your essence and your calibre,

And your hate, loathing and misery!

You lash out at virtue because

You are vapid, loathsome and contemptible!

But at least you despise yourself,

as you should!

As we all do!

Your corrupted heart pumps its venom,

Through your veins, flesh, bone, skin and hair!

You try to hide it with fabrication and disguises, and fail!

You lash out at morality because

You are ghastly, odious and deplorable!

You attempt to appease your shallow soul,

With drugs, gluttony and avarice,

through savagery and destruction!

You fed your wrath with your own progeny,

You are ugliness, horror and torment!

But at least you despise yourself,

as you should!

As we all do!

You see me and cannot contain your rage,

Because like you my soul shines through,

for I am the purity you will never have or be!

You attempt to pull me into the abyss with you,

You fail, you rage, you suffer, you agonize,

While I simply watch, bemused by your wretchedness!

You exist in the isolated mire you strove desperately to create,

Redemption is beyond you, Oblivion Obtained!
