Unist’ot’en Call for Winter Camp Prep Volunteers
Unist’ot’en Camp, October 12, 2016
It was another wonderful pipe-free summer up at the Unist’ot’en yinta.
Work began on the second phase of our Healing Centre and for the first
time ever we were able to host an art camp for indigenous youth.
Connecting our youth to the land is a vital part of our culture, and we
relish these peaceful moments that allow us to build community.
However, the recent discovery of Pacific Trail Pipeline contractors
doing brushing work less than 5km from our camp, was a stern reminder
that the fracked gas projects which target our territory are still
moving forward. TransCanada has also recently donated $10,000 to a local
hiking society, so we know their project is still active too.
Right now we are in the middle of preparations for winter. With other
frontlines heating up, we have had a drop in our usual level of support
through the month of September and so now we are behind on crucial tasks
such as cutting firewood. We also have some maintenance and building
tasks we are trying to finish before the snow falls.
We need several people that can mobilize quickly and be with us for the
next few weeks. If you are able to join us please contact the
Unist’ot’en Solidarity Brigade at https://unistotensolidarity.com/
