August 12 – 15th Unist’hot’en Camp II

15 Jul
Wedzin Kwah at 66km.

Before Banners

August 12 – 15, 2011 in Wet’suwet’en Territory of the Wet’suwet’en seeks to operate a second camp building further resistance to the large influx of industrial activities in our Indigenous Lands and Waters, often with no consent or consultation, or consultation as a final stage of development. The major focus of this camp is largely educational and hopefully strategic. Last year the major focus was Tar Sands and Pipelines, and training for current and future activists to operate as a larger body to resist Tar Sands and affiliated infrastructure and systemic support of Tar Sands expansion.

If you’re interested in this camp and would like to offer a workshop to the table that can be accompanied by some shared cost recovery, offer much of your own travel, and seek creative means of promoting strong resistance to the larger movement and continue with community building and nation building, then we are all on the same page.

Please contact us and let us know that this is for you and that you may or may not bring something to the table.

Please have another look at our page soon, for updates on camp plans, dates, scheduling, what to bring, what not to bring, what you expect from this camp, and what you hope to walk away with when leaving the camp.

Next stages of Camp Development

  1. Communication and Registration.
  2. Travel Plans and Numbers of Participants each caravan.
  3. Camp Implementation and Follow Up communications.

    Great Cause Great site. Hello from Roland Ofner,Houston resident and local river fisherman and Guide/owner of Morice Lake Guiding.There is a rather large group of us local Steelhead anglers that really support what you are accomplishing out there at the 65 km. bridge.We as a group have an annual steelhead camp out there at the bridge every year for the past 25 yrs for two weeks the last week of September the first week of October.We would like to support you in any way we can out there.We do not need any pipelines crossing our Morice river.We are also concerned about our future use of the boat launch and campsite.It seems there has been some conflict with other users of the site.Perhaps we could help your cause by taking up the maintenance and service of this camping area please reply .Roland.
