International Solidarity: Time is Now! All out for Wet'suwet'en


The RCMP raid on Wet'suwet'en nation has begun. "We are conducting peaceful actions as sovereign peoples on our territories, and ask that all actions taken in solidarity are conducted peacefully and according to the traditional laws of other Indigenous Nations. Forcible trespass onto Wet’suwet’en territories and the removal of Indigenous peoples from their lands must be stopped. Provincial and federal governments must be confronted."
