URGENT UPDATE: Coastal Gaslink Poised to Drill Wet'suwet'en Headwaters
The drill they will use to destroy Wedzin Kwa is now in place. The drilling could start any day.

Wet'suwet'en resistance to drilling beneath Wedzin Kwa has delayed the destruction of Wet'suwet'en waters for approximately two years. We have done this with the support of allies/relatives and we need you again now!

In recent months we have faced increased surveillance and harassment from RCMP's C-IRG unit (a police unit created to facilitate pipeline construction) and a series of private security contractors. Wet'suwet'en village sites remain under 24-hour surveillance, while police have made several arbitrary violent arrests, including with pepper spray.

RCMP and CGL's private security contractor Forsythe were served a lawsuit by Wet'suwet'en community members who have been subject to this continuous surveillance and harassment.

We have exhausted all peaceful actions, including through colonial courts, to uphold Wet'suwet'en law.

We will never stop defending our yintah the way our ancestors have done for thousands of years. The pipeline will never be put into service. We need all your support now to ensure it.
