“Keystone pipeline shut after spilling 1.4 million litres of oil” reads a headline on October 31, 2019. Did you know that our pipeline, Coastal GasLink, is a project of the same corporation funding the Keystone XL and Energy East Pipeline projects? All pipeline projects are wrong for many reasons and today, we are asking our members to support our members the Unist’ot’en Brigade Society, the Mountain Protectors, the Wilderness Committee and other groups saying, NO to all pipelines.
How can you get involved?
The Unist’ot’en Brigade Society, wants your help to get the story out to the larger public. They released, INVASION, an 18 minute powerful film that covers many of the events of the last year. They want you to share with friends and host a screening in your community!
Their press release says, “In this era of "reconciliation", Indigenous land is still being taken at gunpoint. INVASION is a new film about the Unist'ot'en Camp, Gidimt'en checkpoint, and the larger Wet'suwet'en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against indigenous people.”
Join a conversation and tea to learn more.
November 13th from 7pm - 8:30pm at Kafka's, 2525 Main Street,
you can meet a couple of Unist’ot’en Brigade Society supporters. They can also let you know more about volunteering at the Unist'ot'en Camp.
