Thank you for being a defender of land and water!
July-August 2015
Get ready - court action is coming

At Unis'tot'en Camp, the situation with police and pipeline workers is tense. Watch the video of Freda Huson and WildCoast allies turning RCMP officers away from Unis'tot'en Camp last week.

Oil and gas companies may try to get a court order to evict Unis'tot'en Camp and start pipeline construction in Northern BC. Please be ready to stand with indigenous land defenders!

The RCMP set up a checkpoint on the way to the camp on Morice River Rd at the 27 and 29 km marks. Reports say the checkpoint is on during weekdays only. Police are IDing drivers and checking insurance papers, lights, windshields, etc.

This week, Chevron pipeline representatives tried to enter the territory.  Watch Freda and her allies turn them around.

The legal support team is working with the BC Civil Liberties Association and the Eco Warriors Legal Trust. The legal support team welcomes new members - no experience needed. Please email solidarity@wildcoast.ca

Allies and sponsors answer the call

Volunteers can get info on how to join the camp and share their skills and good energy. All ages are welcome.


Unis'tot'en and the Law

Unis'tot'en Camp is a reoccupation of traditional territory outside of reserve and treaty lands. The Unis'tot'en people were never conquered or driven from their land, and the courts have ruled that indigenous title still exists. The authorities may have trouble proving they can evict the camp.

Now that the police have started harassing the camp, FAN is preparing a legal team and the Eco Warriors Legal Defence Fund to assist anyone who gets in trouble for protecting the planet. 
 
Support the legal fund or make a pledge for the camp today. Be a sponsor for the ones who are doing solidarity work year-round. Because we give back.
