In Canada, federal police on Thursday raided the protest camps of indigenous land defenders who have been blocking the construction of a controversial pipeline on Wet’suwet’en sacred territory for months. Several indigenous activists were arrested as the police enforced a court injunction to remove the activists fighting the construction of TransCanada’s 400-mile-long, $4.7 billion Coastal GasLink pipeline. This is a clip of Thursday night’s raid.
Land defender: “You are not welcome here! You are not allies to people! You’re hurting our land! You’re hurting us! You’re killing our people! You will never stop until you realize that you’re wrong!”
