*Emergency* Wet’suwet’en Solidarity ‘Fight Where You Stand’ Film Night
The Wet’suwet’un have been resisting the building of a gas pipeline on their land for almost a decade.
In February the RCMP (Canadian police) have stepped up efforts to clear the land to make way for Coastal Gaslink to build their pipeline through this unceded territory.
This film night aims to inform people in Brisbane about this struggle and start dialogue about what we can do to support this and other struggles.
Music and other entertainment as well.
Light affordable food, tea, coffee, and alcoholic beverages.
INVASION Michael Toledano, Sam Vinal & Franklin López
In this era of “reconciliation”, Indigenous land is still being taken at gunpoint. INVASION is a new film about the Unist’ot’en Camp, Gidimt’en checkpoint and the larger Wet’suwet’en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against Indigenous people.
The Unist’ot’en Camp has been a beacon of resistance for nearly 10 years. It is a healing space for Indigenous people and settlers alike, and an active example of decolonization. The violence, environmental destruction, and disregard for human rights following TC Energy (formerly TransCanada) / Coastal GasLink’s interim injunction has been devastating to bear, but this fight is far from over.
Trouble #14: Fighting Where We Stand
In this episode of Trouble, subMedia showcases three ongoing land defense struggles: the Unist’ot’en Camp, located on the unceded Wet’suwet’en territories of so-called “British Columbia”; the autonomous spaces movement in Ljubljana, Slovenia and the eco-defence occupation known as La ZAD, in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, France.
