In this episode we discuss the Unist’ot’en campaign to protect their land and preserve it for future generations. In 2010, the Unist’ot’en began constructing a cabin in the exact place where three companies, TC Energy, Enbridge, and Pacific Trails, intended to build pipelines. Their campaign has faced hostility and violence, including from the government of Canada, and its national police force, the RCMP. To the dismay of Coastal GasLink and Canada’s colonial government, the camp has received immense support both locally and internationally, with solidarity blockades of Canada’s railroad threatening to shut Canada down. We are joined by Dr Karla Tait, Director of Clinical Programming at the Unist’ot’en Healing Centre, who speaks to her first hand experience and strategies of reoccupying and reconnecting people with the land.
