November 26, 2012 –Actions are taking place across Canada and internationally on Tuesday November 27 in support of the Unis’tot’en, who grabbed national headlines when they evicted shale gas pipeline surveyors from their territories in the interior of BC last week. The Unis’tot’en have made it clear that no proposed pipelines will proceed in Unist’ot’en territories and that corporations, investors, and governments have no jurisdiction to approve development on their lands.

On November 20, Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chief Toghestiy intercepted and issued an eagle feather to surveyors from the Can-Am Geomatics company, working for Apache’s proposed shale gas Pacific Trails Pipeline. In Wet’suwet’en law, an eagle feather is used as a first and only notice of trespass. The surveyors were ordered to leave the territory and the road entering into the territory has been closed to all industry activities until further notice.

    Bravo to the Unis’tot’en for taking bold action! In Oregon we continue to fight against pipeline and LNG terminal proposals. Many citizens in my community were very alarmed about the Palomar pipeline proposal and we know how sleazy and corrupt the pipeline siting process is. Beware fossil fuel shills bearing contracts – they will surely NOT be in your favor. We learned also that at least in America, all pipeline easement contracts are closed records – so much for having a way to gauge if a contract is even remotely fair. And we learned of all the horrific safety lapses that caused horrific explosions. Keep up the fight – NO PIPELINES, NO LNG!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. I am familiar with the proposed LNG terminal proposal; but don’t know the details. It’s great that people are taking a stand and truly being concerned with what passes through, over and under their community. I believe that power at the local level is the answer to corporate plutocracy.
