Disclaimer: I don’t speak for Unis’tot’en Camp. This analysis comes from first-hand reports, anonymous tips, and public sources. The situation could change at any time.

Unis’tot’en Camp, the indigenous pipeline blockade on Wet’suwet’en territory in Northern BC, is in its fifth year. The camp is located on so-called “Crown land” that the government of BC claims to own. (The Wet’suwet’en people have a pre-existing claim, of course.) The log cabin, bunkhouse, and permaculture garden are in the middle of the right-of-way for three pipelines bound for Kitimat: Enbridge Northern Gateway, Coastal Gas, and Pacific Trail. The road into Unis’tot’en Clan territory is closed to pipeline crews.
