On December 7th, Deep Green Resistance Seattle held a solidarity event, fundraiser, and info session for the Unist’ot’en Camp.
The Unist’ot’en Camp is a resistance community whose purpose is to protect sovereign Wet’suwet’en territory from several proposed pipelines from the Tar Sands Gigaproject and shale gas from Hydraulic Fracturing Projects in the Peace River Region. You can read more about the camp here: http://unistotencamp.com/
The December 7th event was a total success. We shared photographs and films from the camp (including these two videos: one, two). A passionate discussion followed as participants shared questions about the issue and how best to lend support, and discussed the strategic issues around the camp and fossil fuel resistance in general.
Nearly 20 people attended the event, which was held at the Capitol Hill library. We raised over $400 for the Unist’ot’en Camp as well as several large boxes of supplies. Attendees are energized and several may join a winter caravan of DGR members and friends heading to the camp.
