Call to Action in Solidarity with Wet'suwet'en Land Defenders - Friday 7:30am Devonian Harbour Park

#rebelforlife on the unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations


Please join us as we take action in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en land defenders who are being unjustly brutalized and arrested on their own lands.

Tomorrow (Friday, November 26th), we will be meeting at Devonian Harbour Park at 7:30 am (at the paved circle near the underpass).

We will then block Lion’s Gate Bridge at peak rush hour traffic. This is the first of many non-violent civil resistance actions over the coming weeks.

Come and show your support!

All are welcome - both arrestables and non-arrestables needed.

If you have been considering arrest, now is a really important time, please get in touch (either reply to this email or DM us on social media) and we can provide more information.

We will also have an arrest support team present on the day who can explain the process and answer your questions.

Extinction Rebellion Vancouver is committed to being an ally to Indigenous peoples across so-called “Canada.” We are appalled by the recent events that have unfolded in the unceded, sovereign Wet’suwet’en territory and we call on the provincial assembly to introduce legislation to stop construction immediately and to order the RCMP to leave Wet’suwet’en land.

Extinction Rebellion Vancouver acknowledges that our actions take place on the unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations and is committed to standing alongside and in support of the original stewards of these lands.

We are also organizing another solidarity action on the afternoon of Sunday, November 28th, beginning at 1:30pm at Tantalus Park in Horseshoe Bay. Stay tuned for details!

What’s happening in Wet’suwet’en?

Over the past week, militarized RCMP forces with assault weapons, snipers, and police dogs have been sent to unceded Wet’suwet’en land to enable Coastal GasLink to build a pipeline through Wedzin Kwa – the sacred headwaters of the Wet’suwet’en people. So far, around 30 arrests have been made, including matriarchs, journalists, and land defenders.

Gidimt’en Checkpoint has issued a call to action, urging people to stand with land defenders and organize rallies.

“Reconciliation does not come at the barrel of a gun,” they write.
