RCMP arrests in Wet'suwet'en territory spark protests nationwide


February 11, 2020

Arrests by the RCMP in Wet'suwet'en territory in northern B.C., have triggered railway blockades and other protests across the country in support of the First Nation's fight against a natural gas pipeline.

RCMP began enforcing an court order against those blocking construction on the Coastal GasLink pipeline last Thursday. The Wet'suwet'en have established camps along the road, including the Unist'ot'en healing village that began as a Wet'suwet'en-operated checkpoint on the road in 2009, preventing people working on the pipeline from accessing the territory.
