Invitation to Indigenous land/water defenders for the 3rd Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp
We would like to extend a special invite to our sisters and brothers from other Indigenous nations to Wet’suwet’en territory for the 3rd Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp. The 3rd Annual Unis’tot’en Action Camp will see a lot of activities around building solidarity and planning for communities who will stop pipelines and mining projects that are unwelcome on our unceded territories.
The camp dates are August 6 – 10, 2012 and we would like to invite other Indigenous land defenders to attend the camp. Our resistance will be stronger when we share our histories, cultures, stories, and struggles across different communities and nations. Our communities and nations are at the forefront of land defense against resource extraction, oil and gas development, mining projects, and corporate land theft. These colonial developments have had a devastating impact on our water, salmon, food base, spiritual sites, cultural well-being, traditional livelihoods, children and future generations. Indigenous Peoples are disproportionately impacted by industrial development with high rates of toxic waste, pollution and ill health in our communities, as well as systemic poverty through the encroachment into and destruction of our territories. But we have been resisting since time immemorial and by uniting our resistance, we are stronger.
Tell your friends that the details for the camp can be found at:
