We are gathered on Treaty Six territory and M├ętis homeland, Saskatoon, in solidarity with land defenders at Wet’suwet’en who are currently experiencing colonial violence on their lands by the Canadian state, the RCMP, and extractive industries.

We are taking this action to join the international campaign asking the RCMP and Coastal GasLink to stand down and halt all activities on Wet’suwet’en territories while talks are ongoing.
As such, we will be following the guidance of the Unist’ot’en women, LGBTQ2S people, the grassroots and frontlines, and the hereditary leadership of the Wet’suwet’en.
This is a peaceful ceremonial action led by Indigenous youth, women, sick and disabled folks, and LGBTQ2S folks from the inner-city Saskatoon community. No weapons, illegal drugs, or alcohol are allowed on site. Guided by principles of harm reduction, we will work to make this space as accessible and safe as possible for all community members.
On these lands, we are in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en in reaffirming Indigenous land rights and the protection of land and water for future generations.
TO SUPPORT: We need coffee and tea, hand warmers, warm tents, and most importantly, we need YOU to come out and join us for as long as you are able. We appreciate any support and all are welcome.
