This winter has seen the greatest snowfall in living memory in the northern interior where the Unist’ot’en Camp is located. This is addition to the extreme cold, and one more example of how the climate is changing and creating weather extremes of all kinds.
Around the healing centre the snow level reached the roof overhang of the kitchen/mess hall section. And of course the camp is located in the valley of the Wedzin Kwah (Morice River) so spring break-up could bring flooding both from the immediate vicinity and upstream.
The Camp has launched an urgent appeal for funds to purchase a used back hoe to do essential repair and protection work to prevent damage to the buildings and infrastructure that has been built with so much effort over the past number of years. Please go to our GoFundMe page, contribute what you can, and share widely with friends and other land defender supporters to help us reach our goal.
You can always sustain the camp on a regular basis by becoming a monthly donor or by making a direct one-time donation on the Unist’ot’en Camp DONATE page.
