I’m a supporter of the Wet’suwet’en peoples who have been working tirelessly to try to stop the construction of the Coastal GasLink pipeline through their pristine lands.

Dear allies of the Wet’suwet’en,
My name is Jen Wickham, I am the Media Coordinator for Gidimt’en Checkpoint. I am writing you because you have registered for last summer’s Kill the Drill webinar.
Following the start of drilling under Wedzwin Kwa, a senior member of our community passed away. This has hampered our efforts to mobilize allies and delayed our press conference.
Teaming up with Decolonial Solidarity, we have decided to merge our press conference with their organizing call on October 19th. I am writing to invite you to join us.
We need a large number of allies to carry our message. Drilling under Wedzwin Kwa is illegal and must stop. We are staying in this fight despite this setback.
The call will feature Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs statements as well as an invitation to settler allies to become accomplices.
The government of BC has acted in bad faith and failed to meet its obligations under the memorandum of understanding they signed in 2020.
Funders of this project have repeatedly peddled lies about its legitimacy. Not least the fact that the 20 First Nations it holds up do not have jurisdiction over the pipeline-crossed land.
Together, we will stop this pipeline and assert Indigenous rights in the face of overwhelming greed and corruption of the Canadian government.
I am inviting you to join us in pushing back against this injustice. We need settlers to organize and join the campaign – please click here to register.
