The Wet’suwet’en invasion has brought centuries-long violence and discrimination against indigenous peoples into the spotlight, and the public is getting a first-hand account of the battle on the frontlines of indigenous sovereignty and climate justice.

Are you concerned about what’s happening in Wet’suwet’en? Do you want to show your support for Indigenous sovereignty, land defenders, climate justice, and clean water for all?

The RCMP enforcement of an injunction on Wet’suwet’en territory has sparked international outrage and resulted in people stepping up worldwide to voice their support for Wet’suwet’en and Unist’ot’en.

From rallies and blockades in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en, to sit-ins and protests in opposition to the Coastal GasLink pipeline and RCMP actions, the level of dedication you have shown is amazing, and we want to say a big thank you for all you’ve done so far!

Because we’re going to need that people power again this weekend.

This Saturday, we will be gathering on the South Lawn of Queen’s Park for an Indigenous-led rally, walk, and round dance. This is the time to come out and join thousands upon thousands in Tkaronto/Toronto as we unite in support of the Wet’suwet’en.

Reconciliation doesn’t take place down the barrel of a gun. The RCMP must be immediately removed from Wet’suwet’en sovereign land. Hands off land and water defenders. No pipelines without consent.

WHO: Everyone, especially you!

WHAT: Rally, walk, and round dance

WHEN: Saturday, February 22nd (12:00-3:00pm)

WHERE: Queen’s Park (South lawn)
