Help the Unist’ot’en Protect Their Territory
You say you want to stop the pipelines? These First Nations People are doing it!
Help us help them.
The Unist’ot’en Solidarity Brigade (USB) is a group of supporters based in BC’s Lower Mainland. We have been asked by the Clan Chiefs to help them uphold their responsibility to their ancestors and future generations to protect their un-ceded traditional territory.
As you will see from the stories, photos and videos on this page the Unist’ot’en Camp is strong and thriving. However, they are constantly under challenge. Their land in the foothills of the Kitimat Range stands between multiple bitumen and fracked gas pipeline projects and the port of Kitimat.
The checkpoint on their eastern border, where a forest service road crosses the Wedzin Kwah (Morice River) has so far kept pipeline crews from entering the territory by road. However, the companies continually attempt to land crews in the back country by helicopter in spite of numerous written and verbal warnings that they are trespassing.
The Unist’ot’en urgently need at least one late model 4WD truck that can stand up to the tough conditions on the back roads of the territory. Will you help them maintain their patrols and keep pipeline crews out?
Please contribute generously. Any additional funds will be used to ensure the Unist’ot’en Camp has working ATV’s and snowmobiles to maintain their access to the farthest reaches of the territory even when winter snows make regular vehicle travel difficult or impossible.
