Yesterday the RCMP carried out a heavily militarized raid on the Gidimt'en Checkpoint, arresting 15 people including legal observers, a credited journalist, Haudensaunee allies, and two Wet'suwet'en elders. 

The Coyote Camp on the CGL drill site off the main road was not raided yesterday but reports just came out of a massive RCMP convoy heading that way and jamming radio communication. 

Solidarity actions began across Canada in response to the millitarized RCMP Raid with long time allies in the Gitxsan nations shutting down the rail lines last night, and Haudensaunee supporters stopping the hwy 6 bypass in their territory. 
Most land defenders are still in jail and scheduled for hearings this morning in Smithers where there will be a rally and gathering today at 9 AM.

Janet Williams, the Wet'suwet'en matriarch who was denied medication by the RCMP exclusion zone was taken to the hospital from jail due to chest pains. She is home now recovering. 

Many groups including the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs and Dogwood have come out condemning the RCMP for deploying massive resources that could be used to help people in crisis to instead repress Indigenous land defenders and defend a pipeline during a climate emergency.

Amnesty International has written an open letter urging BC and Federal Government to respect rights of Wet'suwet'en Land Defenders

The call out for solidarity continues and actions across the country are planned for today. See below for details!
As the RCMP carried out their millitarized raid Sleydo' made this callout for support from Coyote camp on the CGL drill pad site where RCMP are heading now. 


15 supporters have been arrested, all for breaches of the injunction. No criminal charges. They will be brought to Smithers for bail hearings (today).

Take actions where you stand!! We need boots on the ground on every piece of infrastructure! Go to your local RCMP detachments, tell them to keep their hands of the Wet'suwet'en. Check our website and social media pages for updates. There will be a gathering at Smithers courthouse in the morning!

Wet'suwet'en Elder Janet Williams was one of the 15 arrested yesterday. RCMP prevented supporters from getting her medication when they set up an illegal exclusion zone in the lead up to the raid that stopped elders, chiefs, and children from accessing their territory.

She had to be taken from jail to the hospital with chest pains after being denied her medication by the RCMP. She is at home recovering now. The night before the raid she shared powerful words with the group of land defenders captured in the video below: 
"The RCMP continues to have heavy presence in the area, despite legal complaints filed against previous RCMP exclusion zones on the yintah, and a recent BC court decision condemning the use of unlawful exclusion zones at Ada'itsx (Fairy Creek).

The violence towards Indigenous elders is unacceptable and must end NOW. Take action wherever you are.  Come to the land. http://yintahaccess.com/come-to-camp "
People and organizations across Canada are paying attention and condeming the grotesque actions by the RCMP and BC Government!
