Council of Canadians chapters, staff and supporters joined solidarity actions with the Wet'suwet'en this week.
Today is the deadline for a B.C. Supreme Court injunction for Wet'suwet'en land defenders to leave their unceded territory and allow construction of the Coastal GasLink pipeline to continue.
The land defenders have said they will not comply.
The Council of Canadians stands in solidarity with Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs and land defenders and calls on the Canadian and B.C. governments and RCMP to respect their right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent under the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples – a declaration that the B.C. government enshrined in law less than two months ago.
