Support Wet'suwet'en Land Defenders

Parents across the FOK network are joining calls for an immediate halt to RCMP raids and arrests of Wet’suwet’en land defenders and for the release of those arrested, including two journalists on assignment covering the events at the checkpoint. Up to date information on the situation can be found at Gidimt'en Checkpoint.

Here's a video with legal context on why and how hereditary chiefs and Indigenous land defenders are blocking this pipeline and evicting Coastal Gas Link from their territories. 

Here are concrete actions parents and families can take on their own, with a group of friends, or collectively:

"It's inconceivable that the BC government continues to resource the violent removal of Indigenous peoples from their traditional territories. And, they are doing so in the midst of BC's greatest reckoning on climate change - to make way for new fossil fuel infrastructure."

- Sally, FOK Sunshine Coast

"Parents are infuriated the B.C. government is using a climate disaster as cover to push through a pipeline on unceded Wet'suwet'en land."
