Solidarity with the Unist'ot'en, Shut down the Coastal GasLink

On November 19th, the Unist'ot'en received notice from TransCanada that “field reconnaissance and pre-construction activities are scheduled to begin the week of November 19th and conclude before the end of 2018.” This is in attempt to build the Coastal GasLink pipeline project, which will extend from Dawson Creek to Kitimat in BC. In response, the Unist'ot'en are calling for supporters to stand in solidarity and push back against the corporation. The Unist'ot'en also state that TransCanada’s timing for this project was deliberate, as Freda Huson, spokesperson for the Unis'tot'en, is helping her partner’s mother in a critical palliative care home. The company is also choosing to do pre-construction plans during the winter as the poor weather can often damper movements and can make it harder for supporters to mobilize.

The Unist’ot’en Camp asks “If you can launch a campaign, organize education forums, host kitchen parties, fundraise with our consent, organize a caravan, plan a trip to support us ASAP, donate, spread the word... please start. We just ask that you let us know in advance so that we can establish a contact and endorse any actions before they start.” Visit www.unistotencamp.com for more information on becoming a supporter, monetary donations can be made at http://unistoten.camp/support-us/donate/.

Campaigns and solidarity efforts to shut down Enbridge’s Northern Gateway and Chevron’s Pacific Trails projects were successful, so let’s join the fight against TransCanada and shut this third pipeline down.
