#Fracking #Pipeline company kicked out of indigenous land in "Canada" #nopipelines

On November 25th, members of the Gidimt’en clan of the Wet’suet’en nation evicted workers from the Pacific Trails Pipeline, a project that would bring “fracked” gas to the Pacific coast for export to Asia. The workers had not asked for permission to be there and were told to turn around and leave.  Gidimt’en land is right across the river from Unis’tot’en land, and both groups have built protection camps to prevent oil and gas pipelines from entering their territories. The Unis’tot’en have called on allies to organize solidarity actions on November 27th.  For more information visit unistotencamp.wordpress.com If you organize an action tag it #NOPIPELINES when you publish it online.

From the youtube page:

Four Companies proposed what they call the “Energy Corridor” to cross Wet’suwet’en Territories; with a total of seven pipelines from Bruderheim to Kitimat, and from Summit Lake to Kitimat. Three companies, Kinder Morgan, Pembina Pipelines, and Endbridge Inc. each propose dual pipelines to transport not only dirty bitumen, but also condensate as a diluent (along with the cocktail of heavy metals, hydrocarbons, and poisons from the extraction and slurry process to turn solid bitumen rock into flowing mock oil). One of the four companies’ projects, formerly owned by Pacific Northern Gas (now 40% owned by Apache Corporation, 30% by EOG Resources [formerly Enron], and 30% by EnCana) seeks to transport through a 36″ diameter bidirectional pipeline to transport Fracturing Project Natural Gas from the Horn River Basin. Fracturing Projects have many disastrous qualities (for lack of a better word) to it and the pollution is the problem with this pipeline. Natural Gas from Fracking projects are 80 % more carbon intensive than conventional natural gas. So it is worse that what was once abundant.

The Grassroots Wet’suwet’en will stop all pipelines by any means necessary. In solidarity with nations also opposing pipelines in their territories, we do not take any “Not In My Back Yard” [N.I.M.B.Y. = equals weak arguments] approaches in our strong stance against poisoning waters for money and greed. We stand beside communities in all directions taking action to stop the pipelines that exist, that are proposed or approved to expand, or proposed pipelines projects awaiting approvals.
