Indigenous Peoples and Allies Fight Against Incursion of Canadian Police

HeadlineFeb 10, 2020

In Canada, solidarity actions took place across the country as Canadian police continued their raids on Wet’suwet’en land in British Columbia. Indigenous land defenders are fighting the construction of TransCanada’s 400-mile, $4.7 billion Coastal GasLink pipeline. At least 21 people have been arrested since the raids started Thursday. This is a land defender confronting armed police officers.

Land defender: “We are here for humanity, for life! We are unarmed! We are peaceful! You are killers! You are genocidal maniacs! You have your guns pointed at us!”
