Unistoten healing lodge construction

Extension being built on the healing lodge at Unist’ot’en, Wet’suwet’en territory.

The Unist’ot’en Clan of Northern BC has established a Camp at the entrance to their Territory. They have declared that no fossil fuel pipelines will cross their land.

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

relish these peaceful moments that allow us to build community. Read the rest of this entry

HOUSTON, British Columbia — In a remote mountain pass connecting the Pacific Coast to the interior of British Columbia, a region brimming with wild berries and populated by grouse and grizzly bears, felled and painted trees have been laid across a logging road to form an enormous message. Directed at air traffic, it reads “No pipelines! No entry!” The warning marks off land where the government of Canada and a First Nations clan hold irreconcilable views of what should happen to a 435-square-mile area each claims as its own.

Chevron officials kicked out of Unist’ot’en

July 25, 2015 via Submedia

Yesterday Chevron, the company behind the Pacific Trails fracking pipeline, attempted to enter our unceded territories. They have no consent from our chiefs and our hereditary governance system, who are standing strong in their stance against all pipelines. Next to the Wedzin Kwah river, which is pure enough to drink from, Chevron presented us with an offering of bottled water and industrial tobacco. Read the rest of this entry

Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thanks to everyone who responded to our Action Camp and Chevron PTP  update. It is becoming clear that the situation here is moving toward an  escalation point.
Today at one o’clock a low flying helicopter flew over the ridge line  and crossed the river a couple kilomoters south of the bridge. It  followed a route that corresponds to the path of the proposed PTP  pipeline, then circled back and flew in a northern direction following  the river toward Houston. They flew low enough to take photos of  activity happening at bridge and our camp. Read the rest of this entry
