Saturday Morning: 'Shut Down Canada'

Saturday noon, after attacks by RCMP on Thursday and Friday.

URGENT UPDATES Feb 8, 2020: 11:05 am - 2 helicopters have landed across the bridge from 66km, on the Gidimt'en side. One is DLT, the second is RCMP. 10:54 am - Two regular RCMP supported by one tactical member approached Woos' cabin and knocked on the door - they informed those inside that the exclusion zone was extended, and that if they need food or water they can be provided, or they can be escorted out without arrest. 10:41 am - Four tactical units have been seen wandering around the Gidimt'en camp, and two heavily armed RCMP tactical team members in green fatigues have approached Woos' cabin. 9:50am - A large convoy of RCMP and industry has headed up the road to 27KM - around 40 vehicles. They seem poised to continue their violence, despite the fact that Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs have a meeting scheduled with RCMP at 27KM at 10am. #WetsuwetenStrong #DefendTheYintah For more updates see Wet'suwet'en Access Point on Gidimt'en Territory For Gidimt'en's call to action: Donate to Gidimt'en camp: Unist'ot'en Supporter toolkit: Unist'ot'en legal fund:
