(The photo, from a work camp a few years ago, is of an ally
taking a quick break during framing of the Healing Lodge roof.)
But this fight is far from over. The Wet'suwet'en people have made a tactical decision not to confront the Company while this matter is before the courts. But, meanwhile vital work continues by the Unist'ot'en Clan and its allies to strengthen its presence on their traditional lands. The Healing Lodge (the heart of the Unist'ot'en Village) is almost complete. Plans are in the works to build Healing Cabins in strategic locations. Other key projects are happening as well.
It is here on Wet'suwet'en Territory that the future of Canada is being decided. If the fracked gas pipeline is built, Canada will be locked in to a fossil fuel nightmare for a generation. But, if the pipeline is stopped, perhaps we will finally turn to building a low carbon economy and take our place amongst the forward thinking nations of the world.
The stakes are high. We must win. Funds are vitally needed to continue building and strengthening the Unist'ot'en Village.
Will you stand with these brave people as they defend their Yintah and protect the Earth?
