After a temporary injunction was passed for TransCanada/Coastal gas Link to attempt a forceful entry onto Unist’ot’en unceded lands, more Wet’suwet’en clans have stepped in and created an additional checkpoint on Morice River Road.
Molly Wickham, a member of the Gitdumt’en clan, said the five clans of the Wet’suwet’en are banning together to protect their territory. “Now that the injunction has come down it’s a safety risk to all of our territories and all of the people on the territories,” said Wickham.
Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs visited the new Gitdumt’en Camp on December 18 to make a firm stance against the proposed pipelines. The Unist’ot’en camp and the new checkpoint have support from all five hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en Nation.
Coastal Gas Link attempted to serve their temporary injunction notice on December 18, 2018, and they were stopped at the checkpoint. The company says they will take a step back to ensure safety.
