BC Unis'tot'en evict surveyors of Pacific Trails Pipeline in Canada

Tarsands Blockade

The Unis'tot'en clan of the Wet'suwet'en evicted surveyors who came to mark the path of the Pacific Trails Pipeline in Canada.

"The Unis'tot'en clan has been dead-set against all pipelines slated to cross through their territories, which include PTP, Enbridge's Northern Gateway and many others."

The Unis'tot'en action camp has been organizing for years to blockade pipelines through First Nation's sovereign territory in British Columbia.

On Monday, we received this picture and letter from Unis'tot'en camp in solidarity with the blockade against the Keystone XL in Texas.

"Thousands of miles Northwest of the Tar Sands Blockade stands the Unis’tot’en Camp, where members of the grassroots Wet’suwet’en and their allies have established a resistance community directly in the path of the Northern Gateway and Pacific Trails Pipelines.

The Unis’tot’en Camp stands in solidarity with the Tar Sands Blockade. We commend the courage and dedication of the dauntless eco-warriors of Texas. May our actions be in conjunction with yours."
