click to read"More than four years ago, grassroots members of the Wet'suwet'en people of northern BC learned that oil and gas pipeline projects are planned to cross their territory without their permission. The indigenous leaders of Unis'tot'en Camp began turning away oil and gas company workers over a year ago. The land defenders set up a "soft blockade" to keep out the corporations, and started building a camp and permanent homes in the pipeline route."
Tom Swanky's book, The Great Darkening: "The True Story of Canada’s ‘War’ of Extermination on the Pacific" is a must-read text for everyone.
