Breaking News: Police Ban Legal Observers from Wet’suwet’en
In this video, Canadian Police tell Water Protector Legal Collective (WPLC) Co-Director Carl Williams that he is banned from re-entering Unist’ot’en Camp, after he conducted three legal observer trainings at the request of the camp. According to police, any lawyers not licensed in “British Columbia,” will not be allowed to pass roadblocks. This is a clear effort to target, harass, and intimidate international human rights and legal workers and observers, and to strip Wet’suwet’en people of their access to human rights legal support in their effort to protect their land from pipelines that could carry tar sands gas and oil to the Pacific Coast. Part of the ongoing legacy of settler colonialism, these efforts by police (RCMP) to control who can and cannot enter Wet’suwet’en land is a flagrant violation of their sovereignty and right to control their own land. We ask you to support Unist’ot’en Camp, in particular, their legal support fundraising efforts.

The current pipeline they are fighting is intended to carry frack-gas, not bitumen. The company currently trespassing on their lands is Coastal GasLink.
