On July 15th 2015, officers of the royal canadian mounted police (rcmp) tried to enter Unist’ot’en territory. The Unist’ot’en have built a camp that stands in the way of several oil and gas pipelines. Camp supporters blocked the RCMP from entering. The following day, the rcmp threatened to arrest supporters at another checkpoint, but supporters responded by building a gate. The Unist’ot’en have requested physical support from allies.
