Wet'suwet'en, BC Civil Liberties Association, and Union of British 
Columbia Indian Chiefs release explosive letter revealing BC solicitor 
general authorized RCMP deployment contradicting public statements.

Despite Horgan and other politicians repeatedly saying they could not 
control police actions it has come out that the BC Minister of Public 
Safety Mike Farnworth declared a “provincial emergency” under the 
/Provincial Police Service Agreement /and explicitly authorized the 
“internal redeployment of resources within the Provincial Police Service.”

*All groups are calling for Mike Farnworth to resign immediately! *

Write John Horgan now and let him know you want Mike Farnworth to resign!

It's Not Over 

"In the wake of limited talks between the Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs 
and representatives of the Canadian state, a sense of confusion has set 
in. State and corporate media outfits have added to this confusion by 
portraying these talks as an endpoint to the protests that have been 
taking place for weeks in support of Wet'suwet'en and against the 
Coastal GasLink pipeline.

But the fact remains that there's been no agreement to allow for the 
pipeline to be built, and no calls have been made for people to take 
down their blockades. Despite what they want you to think... it's not over.


*Call out for supporters at Unist'ot'en Village*

Right now the Unist'ot'en Camp is calling for supporters who can spend 
*at least two weeks at camp*. People who can help with cooking, dishes, 
splitting wood, and other camp chores with a good attitude while 
following Indigenous leadership are needed to help relieve folks who 
have been on the frontline for a long time. Learn more and apply here 

*Drivers Needed*

Not free for two weeks but want to help? Many people who can go to camp 
don't have rides. If you can make the journey from Vancouver to Houston 
and back please send us an email with your availability.

*In it for the long haul*

This has always been a long term struggle, with the first infrastructure 
built at the Unist'ot'en village over a decade ago. In the last two 
months we have seen an explosive growth in people participating in this 
movement. For many these ongoing demonstrations have been their first 
experience with direct action or organizing.

As we continue to take action and organize in our communities, let us 
all be sure to make time to build relationships, share skills, and 
educate for long term fight. While many people have been doing this sort 
of work for a long time, a whole new layer of people are coming out of 
the woodwork to join this movement.

With these kinds of numbers and energy we are powerful, and we can win! 
But for many new people figuring out how to stay plugged in can be a 
challenge, and the lack of immediate results can be discouraging. Folks 
across the country are doing awesome work to build capacity and plug 
people in for the long term fight while they mobilize and take action.

/Are you doing things like this in your community that others can 
replicate? Do you have organizing resources that you think others would 
find useful?/

*Send us an email* and we will aggregate materials and ideas that can be 
reashared with this list to support the struggle moving forward!
