"Come to the territory, to the Morice River Forest Service Road. Come watch what’s happening. Come support us.

"Anybody who can’t get here, it’s time to rise up. It’s time to stand up for all Indigenous people all across Turtle Island. It’s time to make it known that Indigenous people will not be oppressed any longer—that the RCMP can’t come in and remove us from our territories, that they have no legitimacy on stolen Indigenous land.

"And that we have a right and a responsibility to be protecting our territory. To be protecting our water. To be protecting our future generations.

They’re invading our people again. starting in the wee hours of the morning, arresting people who have been providing food and medical supplies to our camps, who are camped out along the side of the ride doing amazing and righteous work.

@emsenn
I made a donation. I will pray, of course.

These posts were hard for me to read for reasons related to my own "citizenship" and ancestry; but obviously that is not on you. I don't mean to burden you with my stuff, but to let you know that I am trying to learn.

Thank you for writing these posts.

@emsenn thanks so much for posting this statement. I've been looking for updates on this situation.

It also looks like they posted an update from last evening here: unistoten.camp/feb6/

"6:45 pm Legal update: All six people who were arrested in Gidimt’en territories this morning are being released with no charges"

@emsenn thanks for the links! I've been following some of those involved on other social media for a few months, but I hadn't seen their actual website, which is really helpful

When did "Harry and Megan" (or whatever that British royalty crap is going by these days)... when did they become so corrupt?

Didn't Canada's "Royal Monarchy" recently say they wanted to stop drilling and fracking?
