In Canada, solidarity actions took place across the country as Canadian police continued their raids on Wet’suwet’en land in British Columbia. Indigenous land defenders are fighting the construction of TransCanada’s 400-mile, $4.7 billion Coastal GasLink pipeline. At least 21 people have been arrested since the raids started Thursday. This is a land defender confronting armed police officers.

Land defender: “We are here for humanity, for life! We are unarmed! We are peaceful! You are killers! You are genocidal maniacs! You have your guns pointed at us!”
