What We've Been Up To
This weekend we organized a banner drop at Reconciliation Bridge and left signs outside TC Energy’s Calgary office in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en peoples of Central British Columbia and all other Indigenous Land Defenders across Turtle Island. We are acting in response to the Yintah Access Call To Action from the Wet’suwet’en Nation to demand that corporations and the Canadian government respect the rights and sovereignty of all Indigenous peoples. Specifically, we are supporting their right to protest against TC Energy’s Coastal Gaslink Pipeline. The history of large corporations’ and our own government’s mistreatment of Indigenous Peoples is extensive and we refuse to allow any more damage to be done.
We call upon TC Energy to respect Wet’suwet’en hereditary law and remove their workers from the Yintah immediately. These workers are not only problematic as their presence, amid the ever-worsening effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, are potentially extremely dangerous to those living near construction sites; but statistically will increase the likelihood of violence against Indigenous women, girls and Two-Spirit people.
We put out an Instagram post with more details, you’ll find it in our “Latest Media & Blog Posts” section.
