Invitation to Indigenous land/water defenders for the 3rd Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp

Posted on June 25, 2012 by lhelinliyin

Rally against Pacific Trails Pipeline at Apache Corporation office in Vancouver, Dec. 9, 2011.

We would like to extend a special invite to our sisters and brothers from other Indigenous nations to Wet’suwet’en territory for the 3rd
Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp. The 3rd Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp will see a lot of activities around building solidarity and planning for communities who will stop pipelines and mining projects that are unwelcome on our unceded territories.

The camp dates are August 6 – 10, 2012 and we would like to invite other Indigenous land defenders to attend the camp. Our resistance will be stronger when we share our histories, cultures, stories, and struggles across different communities and nations. Our communities and nations are at the forefront of land defense against resource
extraction, oil and gas development, mining projects, and corporate land theft. These colonial developments have had a devastating impact on our water, salmon, food base, spiritual sites, cultural well-being, traditional livelihoods, children and future generations. Indigenous Peoples are disproportionately impacted by industrial development with high rates of toxic waste, pollution and ill health in our communities, as well as systemic poverty through the encroachment into and destruction of our territories. But we have been resisting since time immemorial and by uniting our resistance, we are stronger.

Tell your friends that the details for the camp can be found at:

For more information on the camp please telephone Freda Huson at 250
847 8897 and email at fhuson@gmail.com.

If you are need of gas money to travel to our gathering, please contact our allies at No One Is Illegal who want to prioritize Indigenous peoples and communities being able to attend the Unis’tot’en Action Camp and are raising funds. Please call or send an
email to Harsha by July 15th to harsha@resist.ca or 778 885 0040 with your name, contact info, nation/community, where you are traveling from, how many in your vehicle(s), and how much gas money you need.  They will do their best to raise the funds, the sooner you contact them, the better.

Thank you for your interest in the 3rd Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp
and we hope to see you here.
