Indigenous People’s Solidarity Movement, Jan 15, 2019
Activists occupied the 9th floor hallway and office of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) at 275 Slater Street in Ottawa and effectively shut them down for the afternoon!
Those gathered made calls to CAPP’s head office in Calgary and to Seamus O’Regan, the new federal Minister of Indigenous Services. CAPP is the lobby group that represents Big Oil and Gas in this country. CAPP backs the Coastal GasLink fracked gas pipeline that would violate Wet’suwet’en territory.
On January 9, two days after the RCMP raid on the Gidumt’en checkpoint, CAPP posted, “Expressions of support for the proposed Coastal GasLink pipeline have rolled in.”
