Call for solidarity with the Unist’ot’en in mid-June as the government decides on whether to send in more forces to unceded territory.
The Unist’ot’en are counting on supporters to mobilize in a big way for the next step in our legal battle. From June 11-14, the BC Supreme Court will rule on the interim injunction. It will either be extended to an interlocutory injunction, giving a pass to more RCMP violence, or dismissed, ending the human rights violations. But regardless of the outcome in the courts, it is not up to colonial government and industry giants to determine our fate. We remain unceded, undefeated, sovereign and victorious.
On January 8th, you took action! You organized rallies and marches. You made solidarity statements. You wrote your representatives. You put on fundraisers and donated to the Legal Fund. You pledged to stand by the Unist’ot’en.
Now, we need you to stand up again, on June 15 regardless of the court outcome. The time is NOW to recognize indigenous sovereignty around the world. It is up to the Wet’suwet’en and our supporters to determine What’s Next.
#Unistoten's long term goal is to reoccupy our lands – helping our #indigenous people reconnect with safe, healthy, secure housing. We are counting on supporters to mobilize in a big way JUNE 15 for the next step in our legal battle. https://t.co/mirVgj77Pq #wetsuwetenstrong pic.twitter.com/4j8k7bScWz
