Wet’suwet’en territory: #ShutDownCanada Anti-Repression Posters Up

Gidimt’en Territory: Solidarity is inclusive: We are one

It has been almost one year since the call went out for peoples across so called canada for solidarity; to respect Wet’suwet’en laws and jurisdiction to our lands and to fight together against colonization, industrial genocide, and to stop CGL and RCMP from invading our yintah.

As we asserted full control over access to our yintah and brought industry to a halt, many others rose up with us. From large demonstrations to rail blockades to clandestine sabotages against the infrastructures of colonization, many nations, groups and people fought alongside us. These actions gave us strength in the face of the looming buildup of militarized police. Read More …

After a Winter of Blockades: Updates on criminal charges from #ShutDownCanada (en/fr)

It’s been almost a year since the wave of blockades in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en land defenders known as Shut Down Canada.

Ghost Blockade – “Edmonton”

In the early morning of Friday, March 13th, 2020, we took part in an act of defiance and solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en. Inspired by recent actions in the GTA, we setup a ghost blockade along the railway tracks just outside of Edmonton. It was cold, so we gave the ghosts a fire to keep them warm. CN was alerted. We burned the injunction that had been served to Indigenous land and water defenders and their settler allies on February 19th, 2020, for blocking this very same section of rail. Read More …

“St. Catharines” Banner Drop in Solidarity With Wet’suwet’en Land Defenders

In response to the continued colonialist occupation of Wet’suwet’en land by government, police, and extractive industry, some settler accomplices dropped a banner during rush hour over highway 406 in so called St. Catharines.

We support the autonomy and self determination of indigenous peoples on Turtle Island and abroad, who are leading the struggles against colonialism, environmental destruction, and dispossession.

With this small gesture of solidarity , we hope to inspire others in the Region to stand with land defenders in Wet’suwet’en and beyond, and remind the forces of the settler state that despite the media bamboozle, this struggle is still very much alive. Read More …
