SHARE WIDELY - Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs Grant CGL One-Time Access To Shut Down Man Camp

Under the supervision of Lihkt'samisyu Chief Dsta'hyl, and following the eviction of Coastal Gaslink from unceded Wet’suwet’en territory, Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs granted Coastal Gaslink one-time access to Dark House yintah to winterize Site 9A. The Eviction Order we signed as Dinï ze’ and Ts’akë ze’ of these territories remains in effect, and Coastal Gaslink (CGL) will not be authorized to build the pipeline on unceded Wet’suwet’en territory.

This limited access was offered in good faith as a demonstration of wiggus or respect by us as Dinï ze’ and Ts’akë ze’ in our dealings with CGL, despite the lack of consent for CGL’s property and pre-construction activities on our unceded territory.

We remain steadfast in our position that no pipeline will be built on unceded Wet’suwet’en territory. As Hereditary Chiefs, we will continue to uphold Wet’suwet’en law on these lands and ensure that our eviction order stands.

Your active organizing is keeping people on the frontline safe! Please continue to mobilize and amplify the demands made by the Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs: 

  • that police stand down and refrain from enforcing the injunction order until nation-to-nation talks can occur with the provincial and federal governments to address infringements to Wet’suwet’en rights and title.
  • that the remote detachment established by the RCMP on Wet’suwet’en territory be immediately removed.
  • that no force or lethal weapons be used against Wet’suwet’en people and our supporters.
  • that RCMP refrain from preventing Wet’suwet’en people and our guests from accessing our territories. Currently, the RCMP has advised local helicopter companies not to fly into Unist’ot’en territory, endangering the safety of Wet’suwet’en people and guests at the Gidimt’en Access Point and Unist’ot’en Village.
  • that Wet’suwet’en people must not be forcibly removed or evicted from our own unceded territories.
  • that Wet’suwet’en people and our supporters will remain peaceful on the front lines.
