The Unist’ot’en Camp is an indigenous re-occupation of Wet’suwet’en land in northern BC, Canada. The camp stands serves a checkpoint to keep out industry that has not been given consent to come onto the territory (e.g., workers for the Pacific Trail and Enbridge Northern Gateway pipelines). For more information, check out their website and Facebook page.
This page is run by camp supporters in the Lower Mainland. Please “Like” our Facebook page and share our posts and updates with others!

This year´s 7th Annual Action Camp was well received by some incredible and compassionate human beings. There were many profound workshops on Indigenous Land Defender Self-Care, Settler Solidarity, Anonymity and Safety in Cyber Space, Green House Design, and much more. A strategic action plan is now in the works to help us counter the misleading multi-Billion dollar propaganda that government, industry, and pro-industry forces employ.
We may be a grassroots led movement but we are formidable and unstoppable. It is people like you who make this possible. If we believe-in and project a message from the onset that, ¨There Will Be NO Pipelines¨ we know without a doubt that we will manifest that statement. There is no soft language in our message. Our conviction is backed up by thousands and thousands of years of ancestral wisdom and power. They stand behind us; they bless us.
Thank you to all of the wonderful people who came to this year´s camp, the organizers from the Unistoten Solidarity Brigade, and to all of the supporters and allies, like you, who are living a life that your children will respect and honour.
The Camp is getting ready to welcome people to this summer’s Action Camp – just a week away. Here in the south the volunteers of the Unist’ot’en Solidarity Brigade have been busy interviewing new visitors and arranging ride-sharing for both new and returning supporters. If you are thinking of heading up but haven’t registered yet it’s not too late.
Just heard from a good friend at the Camp that the weather is a little challenging so be prepared if you are heading up soon. A fair amount of rain, then as hot as 34 C when the sun comes out. Then cool at night and first thing in the morning.
July 13-17, 2016

Healing Centre Stage 2 – Some Assembly Required
Excitement is growing as Spring Work Camp 2016 is about to get underway. Some of the construction crew have already arrived and more are on the way. A friend and long-time Camp supporter sent us this picture after delivering and unloading the lumber yard order.
In addition to erecting what will be the central space for Healing Centre programs, including counselling and meeting rooms volunteer crews will work to finish Freda and Toghestiy’s pithouse and complete the renovation of the big root cellar. People will also be busy in the permaculture garden – which over the past couple of years has grown into what could almost be called a small farm.
An evening in support of the Unist’ot’en Camp featuring Five Alarm Funk, The Boom Booms, Jack Garton and the Demon Squadron, and Ta’Kaiya Blaney
