The Wet’suwet’en Nation, which has never ceded its territory, has been working to stop a number of pipelines that Canada wants to build through their territory for the past ten years. This struggle came to a head last week when Canadian police violated their agreement with the Gidumt’en Clan by using violence to remove their blockade and arrest fourteen members. We speak with Jennifer Wickham, who is a member of the Gidumt’en Clan, about what is happening in this pivotal fight to protect the land, water and earth and what can be done to support the Wet’suwet’en People.
