So-Called Minnesota Stands With Wet’suwet’en

Wet’suwet’en solidarity action report from so-called Minnesota. Originally posted to Life Without Line 3.

This week, the Giniw collective demonstrated outside the Canadian consulate in solidarity with the indigenous land defenders being invaded by the RCMP.

In response to this invasion, mass unrest has broken out across so-called Canada and beyond. Most notably, this has taken the form of widespread infrastucture blockades.

Read Giniw’s communique here:

Resistance showed up at the Canadian consulate today in Dakota territory, with sweet grass, prayers, and a message from our relatives up north facing oppression, suppression, and ongoing genocide. The consulate called the cops before they answered the doorbell. Sitting behind glass, with three armed officers, they said just one of us could come in.

The indigenous sisters here refused to split up, as that is what these corporate colonial forces do — they divide us to get what they want.

We stand strong with #Wetsuweten. We stand strong with the indigenous youth throwing down across Turtle Island. Follow their stand for what is right: @gidimten_checkpoint
