January 8th, 2019
At least 40 activists gathered outside the lobby of the Canadian Consulate in Seattle to protest the arrests of water protectors and activists at the Gidumt’en checkpoint on land belonging to the Wet’suwet’en Nation. The land is under threat from Coastal GasLink, a project of TransCanada Corporation, who has been constructing a 670-kilometer fracked gas pipeline that will carry fracked gas from Dawson Creek, B.C. to the coastal town of Kitimat, where LNG Canada’s processing plant would be located.
“In response to the call for a solidarity action on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 responding to the International Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en Day of Action. This action will take place on unceded Duwamish & Coast Salish land at the Canadian consulate @ 1501 4th Ave Seattle WA.
Calling on all drummers and prayer warriors to show up in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en territories and all land defenders at the access point on Gidumt’en territory.
This will be a prayerful action. Please bring your drums, songs, copal, signs, etc.”
