 COAST SALISH TERRITORY - More than 100 supporters of the Unist'ot'en were on hand this afternoon outside the Apache Canada office in downtown Vancouver. There were plenty of Vancouver Police on hand as well, serving and protecting the corporate agenda. (More VMC coverage of the event.) 

The Unis’tot’en called for the day of solidarity and support  to reaffirm that no proposed pipelines will proceed on their territories. Last week, the Unist’ot’en and Grassroots Wet’suwet’en again evicted pipelines personnel from their lands:

On Nov 20, Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chief Toghestiy intercepted and issued an eagle feather to surveyors from the Can-Am Geomatics company who were working for Apache’s proposed natural gas Pacific Trails Pipeline (PTP). In Wet’suwet’en law, an eagle feather is used as a first and only notice of trespass.

The surveyors were ordered to leave the territory and the road leading into the territory has been closed to all industry activities until further notice. The materials that were left behind by the work crew are being held until Apache and PTP agree to open up appropriate lines of communication with the Unist’ot’en and grassroots Wet’suwet’en according to the Free Prior and Informed Consent protocol and laws of their unceded territories.

The Unist’ot’en are against all pipelines slated to cross through their territories, which include Enbridge Northern Gateway, Kinder Morgan's northern proposal, Pembina, and Spectra.
