Will a new Wet’suwet’en legal action kick-start Canada on a better, climate-wise path? The recently launched challenge shows huge promise as it aims to lay the foundation to hold Canada accountable to its climate change commitments. Ambitious and strategic, the case takes aim at high-emissions projects like Coastal Gas Link and demands Canada protect future generations. Donate: https://fundraise.raventrust.com/give/269632/#!/donation/checkout

Even while facing eviction from their territory, the Wet’suwet’en are taking to the courts to stand up for our common future. two Houses of the Likhts’amishyu (Fireweed) Clanhave launched the Climate Charter Challenge, which aims to create a pathway to cancel reckless fossil fuel projects that endanger future generations.  Stand with Indigenous Peoples to protect our common future: donate at https://raventrust.com/wetsuweten

In the unfolding drama on Wet’suwet’en territory, focus on the Coastal Gas Link (CGL) pipeline alone often ignores the climate reality of the fracked gas pipe-dreams that are spreading across Canada’s north. Pushing back against projects that threaten our very survival, Likhts’amishyu (Fireweed) Clan leaders have taken to the courts with a sweeping climate challenge that names CGL, Pacific Trails Pipeline, plus two enormous fracked gas liquefaction and export facilities planned for Kitimat, BC. Learn more, and donate: https://raventrust.com/wetsuweten

Justice for Wet’suwet’en! Support groundbreaking legal challenges to halt fracking and defend a safe climate. Indigenous Peoples are in court with a groundbreaking case aimed at  projects that would blow past Canada’s climate commitments. The actions of visionary leaders of Wet’suwet’en stand to protect all of us: donate today: https://raventrust.com/wetsuweten

    Thank you for doing what you do. Standing up for First People’s justice. Standing up for those beings who cannot speak , for helping Canadians wake up and move away from the cliffs of suicide , and for asking for a pause in the mad rush to take and consume everything earth has that can fuel greed.

    After you find and then see that both TMX and BC LNG are fiscally irresponsible, follow the money….. you notice this needle #26 (CAPITALS below) in the UNDRIP haystack.
    It appears that our governments should read what they have been printing lately.
    From near end of #5 UNDRIP in Tyee https://thetyee.ca/News/2020/02/14/Wetsuweten-Crisis-Whose-Rule-Law/?utm_source=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=170220
    RCMP raids on Wet’suwet’en territory, according to some who occupied the steps of the B.C. legislature recently, appear to directly violate at least one of UNDRIP’s 46 articles. They point to Article 8 which declares, “States shall provide effective mechanisms for prevention of, and redress” for any action “which has the aim or effect of dispossessing them of their lands, territories or resources” and any “form of forced population transfer which has the aim or effect of violating or undermining any of their rights.”
    Article 18 gives the Wet’suwet’en the right to participate in any decision-making through their own procedures and law. This has not happened. Article 26 gives them the right to own, use, develop and control the lands, territories and resources they possess through ownership, and says the STATE MUST give legal recognition and PROTECT their lands and resources. None of this has occurred to date, and it doesn’t look like B.C. is even considering it.
    The RCMP must do an about turn and defend the Wet’suwet’en from Coastal GasLink.
