1,000,000 Strong Against Off-Shore Drilling

                                           B.C. First Nation Members Evict Pipeline Surveyors, Set Up Road Block

Members of a First Nation in Northern British Columbia have evicted surveyors working on

 a natural gas pipeline project from their territory, seized equipment and set up a roadblock against all pipeline activity. The group identifying itself as the Unis'tot'en clan of the Wet'suwet'en Nation said surveyors for Apache Canada's Pacific Trails Pipeline were trespassing.

"The Unis'tot'en clan has been dead-set against all pipelines slated to cross through their territories, which include PTP (Pacific Trails Pipeline), Enbridge's Northern Gateway and many others," Freda Huson, a spokesperson for the group, said in a statement.

The Unis’tot’en are now calling for solidarity and support actions to reaffirm their position and to amplify the message to Industry and Government that no proposed pipelines will proceed in their territories. There is a call for immediate actions on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27th to ensure that corporations, investors, and governments get a clear message that they have no right or jurisdiction to approve development on Unist’ot’en lands.
