  Sleydo, Chief Woos's Daughter, Three Accredited Journalists, and Nine
  other People We're Arrested In Militarized Raid of Coyote Camp Today

  Call For Solidarity Continues!

Militarized RCMP raided Coyote Camp today, arresting 14 people including 
Sleydo', Chief Woos's daughter, and three accredited journalists..

They came in with assault rifles and dogs, and without a warrant, used 
axes to break down the door of the cabin Sleydo' and Chief Woos's 
daughter we're in, and violently removed them from their territory.

Of the people arrested yesterday, most we're released this afternoon. 
Five people refused to sign conditions of release that barred return to 
the territory and are being brought to jail in Prince Rupert where they 
face court on Monday.

Solidarity actions continued across the country, with rallies, marches, 
rail blockades, and road closures.

Summary of events from Gidimt'en Checkpoint:

"Around 12:30pm, Nov 19, 2021, RCMP breached two structures at Coyote 
Camp on Cas Yikh Territory, violently arresting Gidimt’en Spokesperson 
Sleydo’, along with Dinϊ Ze' Woos’ daughter, and several other unarmed 
Indigenous land defenders, on behalf of TC Energy’s proposed Coastal 
GasLink pipeline project. At the height of the invasion, a media and 
communications blackout was enforced at gunpoint, cutting contact with 
the outside world.

The previous day, Nov 18, 2021, a militarized raid employing dozens of 
tactical officers, K-9 units, assault weapons, busses, and surveillance 
vehicles breached the first line of defense of the territory - making 15 
arrests (including 2 elders, 3 Legal Observers, and 1 journalist). Their 
bail hearing is happening now in Smithers, BC as more arrests on the 
territory continue.

We need all eyes on Wet’suwet’en as the genocidal violence continues. 
Solidarity actions around the world have already begun.

Video and photos of the millitarized RCMP raid that took place yesterday 
where they violently arrested land defenders, elders, legal observers, 
and a journalist has been released and is posted below.

Statement on Official Accounts from Gidimt'en Checkpooint:

"*** We are fortunate and grateful that our struggle is being amplified! 
However, many fraudulent accounts get created when the media picks up a 
story like ours. We ask supporters to confirm that they are only sharing 
talking points and directing donations to our official pages (listed in 
the 2nd slide). Misiyh! ***"
